This well-regarded Italian fine dining restaurant has specialities such as mixed cold cuts, a lamb rack baked for eight hours and a hot dark chocolate tart corstata served with milk ice cream.

organised a belated birthday for a close friend at oso on 11.8.2015. ^^
we took the SG50 5-course dinner menu. we had 7pax.
we were served some rye bread & focaccia with olive oil & balsamic. quite ok.
first was a cured salmon with caviar & some shaved fennel. it was nice. not exceptional but a great starter.
we had cream of cauliflower soup.
soup was smooth, quite tasty, a bit thick. pretty ok but no better than my own cream of cauliflower.pasta was also average.
good pasta certainly, but quite ordinary, no stand out.
we had 4 orders of veal cheeks & 3 orders of fish. dory not my choice fish.
i tried some from my friend. it was pretty ok. i guess good for a dory fillet.
the braised veal cheek with beetroot – stracotto was excellent though.
tender, totally consistent & not very beefy, quite gentle & quite excellent bite, not the sinewy stewed meat type. i would say one of the best braised meat.
& the crotata – choc lava tart was marvellous.croatata – choc lava tart
it’s like any good choc lava cake, with the tart giving it very good combination of texture.
the restaurant was told that it was a birthday celebration, so they provided a tiramisu cake for the birthday, a good gesture practiced by most good restaurants.
however, when i called to reconfirm the reservation on the day, the person who answered told me he reserved a nice quiet corner for us. but in fact we had 7pax seated on a table 6 with 1 chair at the end & next to the kitchen with a lot of traffic. that would have been quite fine if the restaurant was full but it was just 50% occupied, so i think that was not quite the level of service for a good restaurant.
anyway we had a great evening. food was good, especially the braised veal cheeks & the choc lava tart. the cured salmon was pretty good as well.
dinner was S$50pax for 5-course. we were all quite happy with the meal & ambience.
The rigatoni ala amatriciana and wild boar pasta were simply excellent, couldn't have enough of it. We also liked the chocolate cake and the burratta. Service was very attentive and a great restaurant overall. Highly recommended.

We ordered the following:
- 2 dinner sets from Restaurant week (October 2014)
I like the Classic Poached Prawns Cocktail. It was fresh and crunchy.
The Oven-Baked Oso's Classic "Crostata" was also great. Lovely Twig like design.
They have artistic ambience and is a great place to spend your night with your partner or friends.
