This brand new Italian buffet by Chef Daniele, features a plethora of antipasti, breads, soup, main courses and desserts from various regions in Italy.

Service here was really good! I'm so glad to see Chef Daniele in person as he will go to each table to ask how was the food! I find this was really nice of him, trying to gather feedback from the guests in person to see how he can improve.   The food and dessert quality was quite good, except the pizza and Tiramisu needs improvement. This is a Value For Money Italian Buffet that you have to try!

For full review and pictures, do visit therantinpanda.com   The Food While the buffet spread is not the widest we have ever seen, it is definitely enough for the average person. The buffet stations consist of various antipasti, breads and soup, where we spotted grilled Portobello Mushroom, Tuscany style Marinated Octopus, assorted Italian cold cuts such as salmon and ham as well as a range of cheeses. We were spoiled for choice as we debated which of the numerous cheeses and homemade breads to pile on our plates, and devoured the generous chunks of Scottish Smoked Salmon flavoured delicately with aged balsamic vinegar and accompanied by a welcome punch of refreshing green apple.

The all-new Italian buffet launched by Pontini is similar to a 4-course Italian meal but in a more lavish manner; Starters (free-flow antipasti, home-made bread, soup at the savoury counter), Primi (unlimited orders of Pizzas and Pasta), Secondi and Desserts. Before you get too excited over the anti-pasta spread or desserts, pen down your main courses so that they would be ready by the the time you finished your appetizers.

New sauces and jams always piqued my curiosity to find out their taste and it was the plethora of accompaniments that caught my attention at the savoury table. Instead of pairing them with the Italian Cold Cuts, I walloped them with home-made breads, drizzled some sweet Figs Mustard on the Radicchio, Pear, Gorgonzola cheese salad and Aged balsamic vinegar, and dunked the grilled Portobello mushroom with sweet chilli and arugula salad into Olive Tapenade.

As tempting as it is to continue grazing on savories, reserve room for  the astoundingly delicious pastas, prepared under the watchful eye of Pontini's head chef, Daniele Sarno. Toothsome penne luxuriates in the creamy pool of "Roman Cabonara" and ham, while in another wee dish, the Tagiolini was coated evenly in "Genovese" style basil pesto sauce, which emitted a strange herby flavour. The so-called Italian Meepok "Tagliatelle" was not bad too, tossed in a jumble of wild mushroom, pancetta, pine nuts and parmesan cheese.

 For me, pasta is really the best thing going here and the flavours are very authentically Italian. For a very good price of $48, there is plenty to enjoy at this buffet and you can taste your way through to decide on your favourite.
