Good Italian Food in Upper East Coast!

Opened for 6 years, Etna Restaurant serves delightful Italian Chef’s specialties, unique recipes from the Italian region of Sicily, and the best original Italian pizza, all using finest ingredients imported from Italy. Etna is one of the 18 restaurants which get accredited by Italian Embassy. The few criteria that entails this accreditation are: chef must be Italian, 70% of the ingredients must come from Italy and have DOP certification.

Dinner started with some Fresh mozzarella cheese with rocket salad, Pachino cherry tomatoes and Parma raw ham ($32). These are the freshest batch of air-flown cheese from Italy, they are firm on the outside but milky and smooth on the inside. The ham and tomatoes are good too! If you didn’t realize, the ingredients here form the colours of the Italy flag.

Everyday, Etna will come up with daily specials which will be displayed in the chalkboard above the open concept kitchen. One of the daily specials we had that day was Mussels with Mixed Herbs. The herbs and pistachio left the mussels a wonderfully fragrant flavour.

Anything with mushrooms and truffle tastes good. My favourite for that night was Homemade Semolina Pasta in a cream sauce of porcini mushroom, homemade pork sausage and Italian truffle cream ($28). The truffle cream permeates through the pasta, just do a slight toss and everything will fall in place.

One of Etna’s signature is the Italian style Roasted pork knuckle with potatoes ($48). The pork knuckle may look deep fried, but it is actually braised with beer sauce for 4 good hours before roasted. The end result? Very tender meat!

Tiramisu with pistachio cream ($14) is one of restaurant’s signature and it was ranked as the top 10 desserts by Standard Chartered. The pistachio cream came from Bronte in Sicily and there are a few drops of mandarin liqueur.

We are also give three small cups of Italian liqueurs to give it a try. They are Limoncello (yellow), Amaro (red) and Grappa (colourless). The Grappa has the strong alcohol level of 45%.

Lovely food at Etna. Heard they have very good pizzas, would love to come back and try it next time! By the way, from now till 31 Dec 2013, DBS/POSB cardholders enjoy a 10% discount on a la carte food items!

Do go if you're in the mood for good italian food. pasta made the italian way and good service. Desserts are also quite nice. Bit far from the city center but worth going.

I really enjoyed this place a lot. I had their Norcina pizza and this is definitely recommended! This comes with a truffle base and it is so good! The truffle taste was so strong because they used a paste instead of just truffle oil. This is definitely recommended. You won't be disappointed, especially if your a truffle fan.

I also tried their ravioli with spinach and ricotta cheese filling. This wasn't particularly fantastic but it just average. Decent enough. You should try their wines though! I thought they were really good! Their dessert wines are really sweet and definitely suits someone with a sweet tooth like me.

Founded in 2006, Etna Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria is known for its authentic Italian Sicilian cuisine, use of fresh, premium ingredients, and its impeccable service. Named after Mount Etna, an active volcano on the east coast of Sicily, Etna Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria ensures a great dining experience through its tasty, authentic Italian food and warm hospitality. It's even been awarded the Ospitalita Italiana Gold Seal, an award which is presented by the Italian government / Italian embassies to recognise superb Italian restaurants.

Ambience at Etna Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria is semi-formal. Decor brings to mind restaurants along the coasts of Sicily, with walls of red brick, brightly lit rooms, and fine tableware. Etna Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria generally has a small floor space that is packed tightly, this causes a rather noisy atmosphere when it's crowded. They also have a small outdoor al-fresco dining area. A chalkboard along the counter lists the daily specials, and I like that tables are spacious enough to accomodate their large serving plates.

Service at Etna Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria is impeccable, befitting a fine dining establishment. Staff will welcome you, and seating is done quickly. I like that staff are knowledgable on the menu, as well as the daily specials, able to make recommendations, including pairing of wine. Orders are fulfilled relatively quickly, and dirty plates are also cleared efficiently. They're proactive, offering to change plates after several courses. I also like that staff come round to check on your dining experience, as well as ask for feedback. Excellent!

Food at Etna Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria revolves around Italian cuisine, specifically, dishes from Sicily. Fresh, premium ingredients are imported, and dishes are crafted according to traditional, authentic recipes, in large portions suitable for sharing. I love the clean presentation of the dishes, and generally taste fresh, packed with flavour. Ingredients are prepared simply and allowed to shine. Prices are comparable to other fine dining establishments, budget about SGD $35 or more per person for a meal here.

A daily special, the Fresh Burrata With Parma Ham (SGD $42) is not always available, but is a great appetizer to order if you see it on the chalkboard. Large enough to share between 4 people, the burrata, which is made with mozzarella and cream, is soft, creamy, and fresh. Pair each mouthful of the smooth, creamy cheese with fresh arugula / eruca sativa, juicy cherry tomatoes, and salty, smoky parma ham / prosciutto crudo for an explosion of flavour.

The Linguine Al Granchio (SGD $27) features perfectly done linguine and fresh crab meat, in a savoury, reduced lobster bisque that is packed with crustacean flavour. Topped with a slightly salty soft shell crab, this is a bold dish. Pretty good!
