Decent Pastas

Came for lunch with friends and ordered:   Calamari - still the same, crispy but can do with more seasoning.   Portobello - this is a starter I shared with friends. Plump mushroom grilled to perfection. Delicious!!!   Squid Ink Pasta - not to be consumed on first dates!!! But since Im only out with friends, eat away!!!! Pretty tasty and ingredients were also fresh. Just wish there were more really...   An enjoyable meal nevertheless as they do make very decent pastas.

Great value with The Entertainer App

As approved by Mister, we decided to try out La Nonna with The Entertainer App (1 for 1 main course).

I can never resist seafoods, so i chose Fish & Seafood Soup to kick-off dinner. It was so flavourful, I wished my tummy could take in another. Mister safely sticked to his usual Cream of Tomato which was pretty good as well.

The Sea Bass was rather plain but very fresh. Mister's Veal Cheek was very well-cooked and tender. We ended the meal with the well-liked Tiramisu!

Found it rather pricey as the portions were quite small. But glad we had The Entertainer App!

One of the better restaurants in Holland V

See the full review with pictures here.

We come here for lunch all the time because of the lunch time shuttle to Holland Village from the Science Park on tuesdays and thursdays. Their lunch offers feature 1 for 1 pastas/pizzas, as well as a set lunch that comes with a starter and their dessert. The pastas/pizzas here are around $20 each so the 1 for 1 deal is pretty worth it, especially if you come in a big group. There is limited seating on the first floor of the restaurant though, so reservations on Chope or by telephone are highly recommended. If you have a larger group (say your entire lab or entire office, they do have a seating area on the second floor).   My favourite pasta to order here is their crab ravioli in arrabiatta sauce, and my favourite pizza is ther house special, the ‘La Nonna’ pizza, which is basically an asparagus, truffle paste, and parmesan pizza baked with an egg in the middle.   You can smell this baby as it comes out of the wood-fired oven they keep on the first floor, right in the seating area, piping out all manner of lovely smells to the custom.    The wood-fired does warm the place a little, which is nice in wintry Budapest, but perhaps not so ideal in Singapore because your oven’s heat will definitely push your AC bill up.   We’ve tried their prosciutto wrapped mozzarella starter, which is really nice, and also their clams in white wine.   La Nonna serves a complimentary bread basket to begin your meal with though, so you have something to mop up the clam broth or tomato sauce from your pasta. The bread is nice but not warmed, so can be a bit on the stale/chewy side.   I really enjoyed their macaroni bolognese bake, which was cheesy and beefy and tomato-ey all at once, done more expertly than NYDC’s lasagna (which is just next door).   While it’s not the best Italian restaurant out there, it does have its high points and is a perfectly decent spot to have lunch if you need some cheering up or want to celebrate something.

Forgettable

We went to this restaurant using for dinner on a weeknight and the place was deserted. Ordered the friend calamari which turned out to be rather tough and somewhat lacking in taste. The seafood capellini was also poor. Noodles were undercooked. My dining partner had the ravioli with truffle-based sauce which was passable. If not for the 1 for 1 deal on Palate - probably would not have gone there.
