Affordable Italian dishes

Finding one’s way to Ricciotti can be a little tricky for those who are not very familiar with The Riverwalk. I came by public transport and got off at Clarke Quay MRT Station. Cross the road from The Central via the overhead bridge. And instead of walking to the taxi stand of The Riverwalk which is actually the back of the building, walk to the front and one can easily spot Riciotti which is beside a seafood restaurant. Not too sure if there’s an error with their address, but they are situated at the ground level.

And from the menu (pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), we ordered:-

1) Panzerotti, $18 – Pizza doughs stuffed with chef’s creation. Me being a huge cheese lover, especially anything with melted cheese, I really liked this. And not all were made equally in terms of the fillings. Mine was plain cheese, while another had bacon and melted cheese. Nice.

2) Fritto misto, $16 – Platter of calamari, prawns, dory fish, baby squids, tartare dip. This was pretty average, but a good dish to order for sharing among a big group as it provided us variety without having to order too many.

3) Risotto, $38 – With parmesan and fresh white truffle. From the seasonal specials menu, this was okie. Probably could have been cooked a little longer to rid the excess water/stock.

4) Gnocchi al gorgonzola, $24 – Spinach gnocchi with gorgonzola cheese. We unintentionally gave the waiter a difficult time when we asked for recommendation with no pork, seafood and beef. Ha. Which meant he was limited to giving suggestion of dishes which was either vegetarian or with chicken. And for pasta, he recommended this. Introduced as a very traditional dish, these were thick, soft dough dumplings coated with cheese sauce. Unfortunately, this was a little too new for us to properly appreciate it.

Due to the (silly) 3000 characters limit, continue to read my review on other dishes here: PART2

8) Soffiato, $12 – Italian style dark chocolate molten cake with stracciatella gelato. Not too impressed with this. The chocolate within did not flow out when we sliced through it.

Ricciotti certainly makes an ideal place for a big group outing. The dishes were also reasonably priced. I will definitely recommend Ricciotti for affordable, yummy Italian dishes.

Service was superb too. We were seated inside and was attended by a particular waiter. I guess he must have been assigned to taking care of the tables within. And he was very, very attentive and helpful. Our glasses of water never past the half-cup mark, and he often checked on us. In fact, all the dishes we had were based on his recommendations, and we enjoyed our dinner very much.

bad service

30 mins before it opens waiters can't wait to chase you out as you enter even when the door is opened.

Delightful Italian Cuisine Experience!

Ricciotti (formerly known as Riciotti Pizza Pasta Grill) was established in October 2004. The restaurant has undergone a new facelift recently with the theme of "Benvenuti Casa", meaning "welcome home". It was re-opened in mid October 2014, and celebrated their 10th year anniversary with a newly revamped menu!

Ricciotti Riverwalk

For more information and pictures at: http://rygohxx.blogspot.sg/2014/10/ricciotti-singapore-10th-anniversary.html Ricciotti Singapore opened at Riverwalk in October 2004 is celebrating their 10 wonderful years of authentic Italian cuisine with an updated of its menu with new flavours and excitements. Mentioned from the Managing Director, Ottavio Gori, there will be more art installations and musical talents lined up ! I'm getting excited ~ 
I've the chance to try out their new menu at Riverwalk and it's definitely delicious. 

One of my favourites -  Linguine Al Granchio
A touch of chilli and chunks of crabmeat together with the tomato sauce is something that I will come for more and finish it up. Other than this, Risotto is quite flavourful too!
