Gotta make a reservation 1 month in advance if youโ€™re looking for a dinner slot. Lunch slots are much easier to get.

The view is really nice as itโ€™s right by the beach, and itโ€™s a single building along east coast park. Alfresco dining.

The pork was awesome, pasta and octopus was good too. A bit on the pricey end, but good for a special occasion

The shell of the Cannoli was light, airy and incredibly crispy, and piped with a creamy ricotta cheese filling. A delicate dessert, the Cannoli was sweet, slightly zesty and nutty with the crunch from the pistachios. The Soufflรฉ Tartย with 70% dark chocolate was our next pick. Compared to usual tarts, the souffle tart had a mellow and airy mousse that was chocolatey rich and set on a crunchy sable base.

The 9" focaccina is a cross between focaccia and pizza. Topped with freshย tomatoes,ย mozzerella diย bufala,ย basil leaves and extra virgin olive oil, the San Marzano Tomatoes was a burst of fresh flavours. The dough of the focaccia was light and airy yet held a firm and crispy texture like pizza.

Dessert arrived in style on a cute dessert trolley. Expect a small selection of bakes stocked fresh daily, where Choice Of Two is at $14 while it is an additional $5 for every third dessert. Rich and decadent, the 70% dark chocolate Souffle Tart was a deliciously foolproof delicious option. The added touch of sea salt to the bittersweet combo was a chefโ€™s kiss too. The Zeppole (deep fried dough ball) while tasty, paled a little in comparison as it tasted kinda like a regular cream puff but I did like the sweet amarena cherries embellished on top with the smooth pastry cream.

For mains, we tried the Grilled Pork Collar ($38) with peppers, colatura and Parmigiano. With beautiful pink hues, the sliced pork was succulent and tender. The impressive marbling felt like I was cutting into a lovely steak and the flavour of the protein was just right for me - not too lean or fatty with just a good amount of meatiness. However, the thick cuts felt a little cloying towards the end even though the creamy colatura-parmigiano sauce and bright, piquant sweetness of peppers helped counter the heaviness. So definitely share this with more people.

Quite the journey for a Westie like me, but all was well at Fico, nestled just at the edge of the East Coast Park shoreline. The picturesque casual Italian joint had a lovely selection of handmade pasta but we only settled on one which was the Mafaldine ($30). A unanimous favourite at the table that evening, the tangy ossobuco, braised veal shank, was so tender, comforting and saucy. Made with Primitivo di Puglia, the juicy beefy sauce had the added heartiness and richness of the red wine. The ridged edged pasta was also perfectly al dente and the extra bit of crunch from the bits of almond nuts was very much welcomed.

We had to get the highly-raved San Marzano Tomatoes ($22) Focaccina as well. A competent appetizer, the nine-inch focaccia-pizza love child offered up light, airy yet crisp-crunchy bites. Topped with San Marzano tomatoes, bufala mozzarella, fresh basil leaves, and extra virgin olive oil; you got to love the classic pie pairing and the burst of fresh flavours. The 80% Semola dough held everything nicely too and the edges were particularly moreish.

Coffee is not bitter or acidic, tad milky..

Sourdough is well-toasted to slightly crispy outside while soft & fluffy inside; with a layer of roasted garlic chive cream cheese spread; came with a big piece of smoked barramundi fillet which is soft but mildly dry; filled with small amount of ponzu kangkong & pickled shallots; love how well the ingredients complement each other; with crispy cassava chips & fresh greens with yuzu vinaigrette at the side; simple & light dish worth a try..

Al-dente pasta tossed in dashi cream sauce; sauce is flavorful & rich, quite addictive; topped with chunks of fresh crab meat; with shio kombu, edamame & sesame; worth a try..
