Many praises here already. Just trying to get my fill of Italian before getting serious chow-wise in Singapore.

Unfortunately, no fried anchovy stuffed olives tonight (sorry Rubee, I even asked).

Excellent salt cod fritters, great fried shrimp, plump and cooked so exactly that they burst on the bite, nice sticks of battered green beans, a few bites of calamari, caesar quality romaine.

Tagliatelle Bolognese is heavy, cheese-loaded with generous minced meat, rich enough for Emilia-Romagna. Perfect noodles, well textured, nicely dense and subtly thick, stretching delightfully on a chew. (Mee pok afficionados will appreciate the resemblence.)

An ordinary room temperature blueberry crostata (lots of blueberries though) with an icy lime sherbet that was quite faint of flavour. Nice poppy seed coat cookies. Nowhere as good as the savoury courses.
