Hits and misses, but the hits are well worth the visit

For photos and the full review, head over here!

I've dined at Concetto a few times already, and I maintain that it serves pretty good food at its price point. Few really memorable dishes are the Concetto Pasta ($6.90), Red Snapper ($13.90), and Apple & Yogurt ($6.90). The fish was perfectly cooked, moist and well seasoned - which is more than what some established restaurants can do. The Apple and Yogurt was a surprisingly well-composed dessert! Great textures from the different preparations of apple, paired with a pleasant yogurt sorbet. 

Only beef I have with Concetto is that the food is fairly inconsistent in its ingredients, preparation, and sometimes quality. The snapper has come with varying amounts of sauce and sides on my every visit, and so was the case for the Oyster Blade Beef. These changes aren't reflected in the menu, so it's quite confusing when I don't get exactly what I thought I ordered.

had lunch with a friend at concetto by saveur at the cathay on 10.2.2015. :-) i had a nice 4pax family dinner here recently on 18.1.2015. she ordered the concetto pasta & the kurobuta pork cheek, plus a ice lemon tea. i ordered the S$20.90 3-course set lunch + S$1.50 for ice lemon tea. i picked the concetto pasta, beef oyster blade & as the server recommended, the pistachio panna cotta. the concetto pasta was a chilled capellini with crab & prawn tartare (tiny morsels) tossed in lobster oil & topped with lobster foam & ikura (salmon roe). it’s a very tasty appetiser though i was less blown away as the last time. perhaps some truffle oil? but maybe cannot mix too many ingredients. the lobster bisque made it very flavourful already.^^ i had the 36hr sous vide beef oyster blade. beef was tender & consistent. it was not sinewy like a braised beef dish. still i thought taste was bland & lacking, and still basically a braised item c/w very flavourful grilled steaks. i am not sure if the beef was charred first before sous vide-that should add some flavours. there was french mustard with seeds layered on top, and the coffee soil provided some taste when taken together. overall i would think the kurobuta or the duck confit would be better. my friend had the braised kurobuta pork cheek with gnocchi. i had this the least time. the kurobuta was flavourful & tender, very good. between duck confit (which was also very good) and kurobuta i would take kurobuta.^^ the last time we had the dark chocolate tart. i asked the younger server (she just finished A levels & waiting for results). she recommended the pistachio panna cotta. good recommendations! i thought this was a very good dessert. it was not the flavourful panna cotta we had at tremezzo lake como, but it was a very good one, & the plus over the plain one (even a very good one at tremezzo) was that this came with pistachio crumble & salted pistachio. i also tasted strong black pepper flavours which strangely made the whole combination really nice! i would order this panna cotta again if i dine here next time!^^

daughter wanted to buy 4pax family dinner again & brought us to this happening place concetto by saveur at The Cathay on 18.1.2015. 
i must say i am very pleasantly surprised, far exceeding my expectations. ^^ we had a reservation were there early at 6pm & were among the first few customers, but the place filled up quite quickly. we ordered 2 appetisers & 4 mains/pastas to share. i liked everyone of them! ^^ the caesar salad was very good, not too creamy, nice bacon tips & overall flavours especially enhanced by the grilled octopus. the chilled capellini, crab & shrimp tartare, lobster foam & ikura lagi best. i can have this all by myself, excellent lobster foam, wonderful flavours, texture & looks. funghi risotto was very good, a good restaurant standard, intense and taste. i like the crab risotto even better than the funghi. & i am usually not so hot on duck confit but this was good, nice crispy skin & tender, soft meat, not sinewy which was often with braised meat & some duck confit, the reason braises are not my favourite. i liked also the pesto tagliatelle, though pesto can be overpowering if taken much, but this was an excellent accompanying portion. the kurobuta pork cheek with gnocchi was another pleasing dish. i liked the tender & flavourful pork & also the gnocchi. we had a dark chocolate tart to share. nice too. deconstructed. the bill for 4pax include 1 glass of wine (S$6) was $107 about S$27pax nett,  a perfect family evening out, nice food & ambience. food was mostly better or as good as petite menu, which my daughter said was now closed, and some chef had gone on to start portico a new eatery. i guess that would be our next family go to place to try out.

Came here for lunch on Friday and was quite busy. Tried the following dish:

1.Mushroom soup(v)- homemade wild mushrooms soup base itself was really good, while the sauteed mushroom inside was bland and really disappointed.

2.Duck Tortellini-The signature duck confit from Saveur is also served here! Very deep in flavor but a little bit dry, and the pasta skin was too soft, which suppose to be al dante. While the overall flavor was not bad at all. 

3.Apple & Yogurt- very light and clean taste, apple was served in 3 ways here. Love the sour & refreshing taste of apple.

Not a bad place but i cannot say food is really good, but you'll get what you pay for. A nice try for those budget-eater.

Kindly refer to my reviews on my blog for detailes and pictures.Thanks :)

Decent food for the price

They do dish up decent food for the price, especially in terms of presentation. The usual trade-off for the philosophy of good food at low prices is either quantity or quality. Concetto does well by its portions; however the quality is a little lacking for me.

I tried the Grilled Octopus Caesar Salad, Buffalo Mozzarella, Beef Oyster Blade, and Red Snapper. The Red Snapper was amazing;  everything else were subpar. I'm not expecting the world for their prices, but I do expect to have what I read on the menu. Concetto uses big words in their menu to mimic fine dining, but fail to deliver in the quality of their food.

Good food does not need fancy ingredients. And with their Red Snapper I had a wonderful dish that used simple, fresh ingredients, combined with good cooking techniques. Stop playing with fancy names and instead use their culinary expertise to deliver delicious fine dining worthy food. I think that would make them really shine.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
