Previously known as Trattoria Cuccina Italiana, Trattoria Italian Kitchen serves a variety of Italian cuisine. Their secret ingredient - authenticity, simplicity, quality imported ingredients, great service and value. Trattoria truly lives up to its reputation as an informal restaurant serving simple Italian dishes.
To put in context , I only ordered spaghetti carbonara and gnocchi..but both fell below expectation especially for the price of avg $25. Carbonara was very creamy and parmesan cheese did not kick in to balance the cream and yolk flavor . Not sure if I am willing to go back to try other dishes. Most likely no.
The last time I dined at Trattoria Culina was years back, when 313 @ Somerset just opened. Well, good to know that this authentic Italian restaurant has planted its feet firmly here, despite the changing trends and other restaurants closing down, etc. Hence, it was time to revisit for a good old Italian dinner.
For mains, we shared the Baked Lasagna with Bolognese and Bechamel (SGD$19.90) - tender layers of minced beef ragu enclaved between layers of cheese and pasta, a sticky and chewy delight, teasing the palate with rich flavors and texture.
Then we also had a Ravioli Al Funghi (SGD$24.90) - pretty, scallop-shaped ravioli bursting with cheese , tossed in a delicious cream sage sauce. There were at least two types of mushrooms spotted, adding to the dish the distinctive sweetness of mushrooms. The ravioli was taut and once bitten in, the melting cheese exploded in the mouth. This was a fabulous selection.
For dessert, we shared an Apple Crumble (SGD$9.90) - a delicious bowl of fresh apple cubes, rocks of pastry and a large scoop of vanilla ice-cream. It was warm and tasty, not too sweet, with the large rocks of crunchy crusts adding bite and flavor to the whole dessert overall.
