The Soups Are Small

Zuppe di Pesce (Tomato Seafood Soup) - $6++

Flavour was alright. Good as a tasting portion - spoon in picture puts size into perspective. Same small portion as the Mushroom Soup. Quantity = 1 of each kind of seafood (squid, prawn, mussel).

Sooo Good

Vongole Bianco (Clams in White Wine) - $11

The last time I was here, I tried the appetiser version before (i.e. without the pasta). Clams were impressively juicy & flavourful, so I ordered the pasta version this time around. It did not disappoint! Yummm. πŸ˜‹

Good Flavour

Zuppa di Funghi (Mushroom Soup) - $4++

Pretty robust & fragrant. Bear in mind this is a small portion; you can't really tell from the picture. We finished it in a couple of scoops.

Sooo Worth It

Lava Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream - $10++

Warm & comforting. The chocolate lava oozed out upon cutting of the cake, just like it should. Pretty dang good value for money if you ask me.

Good But Not Spicy?

Calamari (Deep Fried Squid) - $7
The sauce is apparently spicy, but I didn't feel any kick. No matter to me, though, because this was still good. Lightly fried, not dripping in oil.

My only gripe is that the ordering system here is kind of messed up. After the waiter repeated my order & I verified it was correct... We were missing 1 beer, were served an appetiser we didn't order, were served a duplicate appetiser (after we finished the 1st plate), & this calamari (meant to be an appetiser) was served after our main courses.

So.. Take note to be patient/tolerant/extra vigilant, I guess?

Delicious But Needs More Seafood

Zafferano (Seafood Risotto with Saffron Sauce) - $13

Something out of the ordinary for me. Risotto was nicely done; sauce slightly creamy & fragrant. I only wish there were more seafood inside! The balance of risotto to seafood was a little disproportionate.

Would Eat Again (& Again)

Capesante (Baked Scallops with Capsicum Puree & Flavoured Butter) - $12++

You might think this is an expensive appetiser for just 2 pieces of scallop. But I've ordered this twice already & it doesn't disappoint. The scallops are tender, & the way this dish is prepared is simply delicious. My parents enjoyed this too 😁

Where's The Crab?

Granchio - Crabmeat in Pink Sauce ($12++)

Looks delicious, right? It was. Pasta has great texture & a spring in every bite. Creamy tomato based sauce was lip-smacking as well. My gripe is... Where is the crab meat? I barely found any inside.

Porrions are on the small side, but surprisingly filling.

Juicy Yeaaahhhh

Vongole - Clams in White Wine ($10++)

Had better luck with the appetisers. This plate of clams, for example, was plump & juicy - so much that I forgot to take a picture of it BEFORE we dug in. I guess this lousy picture will have to do. #fail

Yes To Adult Beverages

Left: Verde
Right: Birra de Fermento
(Both at $7++ a pint)

Verde is brewed using seaweed barley malt. An acquired taste - personally didn't fancy it.

Birra de Fermento is a light cloudy wheat beer. Very easy to drink, I enjoyed it πŸ‘

Aglio Olio and The Usual Wings

Dinner with the girls at this west-side cafe. Business was pretty good; quite a crowd when we arrived at 730 and was continuously filled till closing time at 10. Shared some wings ($6.50) for appetiser: freshly fried, hot and crispy, what's not to like? Comes with barbecue sauce dip on the side but I personally prefer it without. The Aglio Olio ($4.90) with chicken (+$3) had sufficient balance of garlic and spice flavours. Affordable western food in the heart of the neighbourhood: I see myself coming back pretty often 😻
