good food, not so good ambience

Excellent Angus steak (finger licking good), good sea bass but the vegetarian basil pasta was not so good (but too soggy and not so fresh tasting). Good eggplant starter dish but not great. Great service esp when they ran out of a few of the dishes and gave us free gelato and limencello. Main problem is the boring ambience. Tables laid out like a classroom, lighting and decor also needs work. Not the most intimate italian place given the expensive price tag

The Telok Ayer area on a weekday could get really quiet, and Stanley Street is one of it. This quaint place with Italian decor is equally quiet as well. When we entered the restaurant, there was only one table of two. As we ate, there were only 3 tables who came in. The servers knew their stuff and were quite prompt, a few times asking if my bread basket is to be re-filled, which was quite uncommon. The bread is generous, and came with bruschetta-kind of olives dipping, which I loved it, departing from the usual butter.   Burrata con crudo di Parma ($29), which is Burrata cheese (the white blob in the photo) and salty, thinly-sliced Parma ham, both of them make quite a great pair, but only with an extra dash of olive oil on the Burrata cheese, in my opinion, Else, it could get a bit too bland if eaten alone.   Tagliata di Manzo con Patate e Funghi ($45)Angus Beef Tagliata with roasted potatoes and wild mushrooms (250 grams), had a close to perfect doneness. The fats melt in the mouth, and the meat red where it should be. Although, it is under seasoned, and probably could do with a bit of olive oil and sea salt, the chef's technicalities shine in this dish. The wild mushrooms and roasted potatoes went well with the meat, providing an extra crunch to the meat.   The Tagliata's limelight could be easily stolen by the Astice alla Sarda ($45)Boston Lobster in Sardinian Style with Lemon sauce, cherry tomatoes, onion and fresh fruit (600 grams). It is one of the sweetest lobsters we have ever tried... ... Click here to read the entire review, complete with photos! (http://mediumrareandothers.blogspot.com/2014/10/pepenero-chinatown-telok-ayer.html)

I visited PepeNero for dinner with my wife and tried the duck with orange sauce appetiser, saffron risoto with foie gras, boston lobster linguine and tiramisu cake.

Duck appetiser was so-so with only 6 slices of duck for almost $30 which is definitely not worth the money. There are better duck available at a fraction of this price.

Lobster linguine was slightly undercooked and the lobster was not fresh. Foie gras risoto was average and too cheezy for our liking. Tiramisu was average.

All in all, it was an expensive meal ($120) hardly worth the money

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
