Thinking back to our first visit here, it was more than good two years ago.
The menu hasn’t changed much or at all, which is a good thing to me as I know I could find my way back to the four cheese gnocchi.
This time round, I passed the heavy gnocchi even though I am one heck of a potato junkie because I want to supper on prata later on.
The al dente and slightly chewy pasta was a comfort dish, dressed in tomato sauce with a touch of cream for sweetness.
The sauce was cooked with thin bacon slices and fragrant porcini. Simple and good.
We are not a fan of spaghetti, so I requested for the original spagehtti carbonara (S$19++) on the menu to switch to tagliatelle instead which came with S$3 surplus.
It was a good ol’ comfort dish after another rainy Saturday, egg yolk, cream, smokiness of the bacon and some mushroom slices thrown in worked.
I love nuts!
Pistachio is my all time favourite after hazelnut and chesnut, hmmm…perhaps before macadamia, pecans, almonds…
Anyway, this is the signature dessert of Etna which is of Sicilian cuisine.
Sicily is famous for producing pistachio and the ones used here are from its motherland.
There was a very nutty and delicious layer of pistachio cream layer sandwiched inside the tiramisu, it came with a sweet aftertaste.
And the damage for the dinner was …
