For lunch, they have no menu, but three choices for set lunch - chicken, seafood and vegetarian. I chose vegetarian while my sweetheart chose chicken. Each course came with soup, pasta, a main dish, dessert, and coffee/tea for $27.50 nett.
The food was tasty, fresh, and original. It started with a bread basket (which halfway through we already felt full) and a complimentary pair of garlic bread pieces with salsa on top. The vegetarian course was a green soup, green linguine (basil-flavoured apparently), eggplant, potatoes & salad, and tiramisu. The chicken course was minestrone, raviolli in tomato sauce, chicken pieces, potatoes & salad, and tiramisu.
Some notes - I dislike the taste of eggplant normally, but in this dish it was non-existent, and I enjoyed it. The pasta dishes were served in small bowls, which is different from other Italian restaurants. The tiramisiu was original and definitely smacked of quality - brown grains covered the cream middle which floated on liquid alcohol at the bottom.
This restaurant has a cosy ambience because it is in what must have been a house previously. I am almost sure that the waiting staff are an Italian family. There are also lots of artistic decorations. Worth a visit.
If it is your first time, it may be confusing where to park. There is a carpark behind the restaurant.
The price is reasonable when you consider that there are no additional taxes.
I enjoyed myself greatly but I must qualify that I am always in bliss when dining with my sweetheart. =)
