Excellent all-rounder

For the full reivew, please see http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2014/11/garibaldi-italian-restaurant-bar.html The swanky restaurant may seem, at first brush, intimidatingly posh and severely stiff, but the warm, inviting service immediately puts one at ease. 

And, for a fine-dining spot, the food is portioned rustically. Exemplary cooking aside, such is the generous portioning that the pricing becomes so very value-for-money.

We had:

1) Free-Range Poached Eggs ($26) layered upon a pool of truffle potato cream and sauteed porcini mushrooms, and crowned with White Truffle shavings ($60 at $10 per gm). This was seasonal food at its orgasmic best, masterfully exquisite and beautifully executed.

2) Prosciutto di Parma con Gnocco Fritto ($26): crisp battered and fried morsels of chewy romagna dough encircled by pink ribbons of the finest Italian Parma ham.

3) Ravioli al Funghi Porcini ($30): bite-sized pockets of veal slathered in a velvety porcini mushroom cream - Hearty and comforting but so very refined. 
 
4) Acquerello Risotto Mare ($36): perfectly al dente, brimming with a rich lobster consomme, and dotted liberally with squid rings, fish, and fat bouncy prawns, all perfectly cooked as well.

An old classic...just epic

As a lover of Italian cuisine myself, it's a delight to see so many new Italian trattorias, pizzerias and other -'ias' opening up all over Singapore. With all these new pizza spinning, pasta-making newbies in town, it can be easy to overlook and forget about the stalwart Italian stocks. Garibaldi is one perfect example of this.

Embarrassingly, it was by chance that after 4 years of hearing its name and a variety of pleasant to flattering reviews of the famed restaurant, that I finally ventured down for lunch this week.   Like most sane people, I don't believe in spending ridiculous amounts of money on food unless a) it's for a special occasion or b) the food is so good that it leaves an indelible impression on my temporal lobe.   In the case of Garibaldi, it was a special occasion… and after having eaten there, a firm print of delicious Italian goodness is left in my mind…. and most pertinently in the shape of what is shown below:   Gnocchi al gorgonzola – ($28) -After having some sub-standard potato dumplings at another venue earlier this week, the dish at Garibaldi came like a cheese-soaked knight in shining armour. Perfectly al dente, well-textured and bite-sized. And the sauce…Oh my God, the sauce. F*** the diet and order it anyway. While typing this I've practically been drooling with the image below staring me in the face.

This just might be the best Italian Restaurant in Singapore

My experience and shock at the pasta, and photos at : 
http://sethlui.com/food-review-garibaldi-italian-restaurant/

Was there during Restaurant Week and had a splendid time. They serve you little margarita shooters while they set your table and dazzla with good service. 

Be prepared to pay a significant price, but the food is quite good overall, although they didn't cook my pasta al dente. Other than that, the rest of the dinner was amazing. Read my blog for the full details!
