Full Etna review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/10/etna-italian-restaurant-pizzeria.html


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!

Let's be fair: the food was pretty decent (pasta and pork cheek were good, lasagna was ok, pizza wasn't anything to rave about), and the person topping up the drinks was attentive enough. The maître d was polite and warm.
 
But everything about the experience started to go downhill when we asked to order our food. As we went round the table ordering our starters and mains, the female waitress interrupted us and said it would be good if we could list all our starters before moving on to mains, otherwise it was not going to be possible for her to take down everything person by person. And she delivered this rather curtly.
 
When the pizza came, our friend had the sharpest of eyes to spot a hair sticking out from the centre of the dish. We promptly called the waiter, who apologised and went to make a new one. But there was no separate attempt at an apology or way of making it up later on. We weren't expecting a free meal, of course, but at least have the decency to come over and apologise for the mistake instead of hoping it will blow over.
 
When we were done with our meal, one of the waiters asked if we wanted any desserts. We said no, and asked if there was any credit card discount, to which the waiter said no. But when the bill came, another waiter said there was a DBS card discount. All rather confusing, but never mind, let's pay the bill.
 
When the bill returned for the signature, they passed it to the wrong person to sign. Then soon after that was settled, one of the waiters told us - mind you, it wasn't a request - that he really needed the table. Meaning that we had to scoot even though Etna never told us at the time of reservation or at the meal that we had a limited time to dine there. The waiter wasn't even apologetic about telling us to go.
 
My first time here, and probably my last. We're paying $45 per pax and the least we could expect is some friendliness and courtesy. That's not asking for too much, and there are plenty of places where you can get that at lower prices. What a shame.

Food: delicious and authentic

Presentation of food: fantastic

Staff knowledge of Italian food: excellent

Service: top class

Wine: pretty exhaustive Italian wine collection

Price: mid to high end. With one drink and 2 pax, you can expect to spend about 150 sgd

Favorites: we are still exploring! But the lasagna bolognese and linguine al granchio are worth trying.

Ambience is quiet and relaxed.
