Garibaldi is one of the fine dining Italian restaurants established in the ‘earlier’ days.
Through the invasions of new slew of eateries and especially even more casual Italian ones, Garibaldi stood up to the test.
And so here we are to savour their Mon – Sat (not many restaurants offer Sat set lunch) set lunch priced at S$39++ including tea or coffee.
The bruschetta plate with its rustic ingredients was very basic and nothing to shout about really.
The refreshing seafood salad was more like a cold tomato soup with really fresh seafood.
One thing that irked me though, was that most of the dishes on the set menu that tickled my interest came with additional S$10 – S$20, what’s the point of doing set lunch price?
Only maximum of two choices from each section were included in the set lunch.
Luckily, this beautiful tender piece of seared tuna steak was at no additional charge.
It was dressed with citrus based dressing and aged balsamic vinegar.
I was hesitant to order this potato and pasta combination, after it was double carbo, after all it would be all vegetarian.
I took a dip as I like pesto with cream a lot.
The pasta turned out well seasoned and perfumed with the rich pesto.
Though I would really like some form of protein thrown in as well, too bad this was the only other dish without additional charge.
Only one choice of dessert included in the set, if you like other ones from the normal menu – S$10++ extra.
The raspberry mousse was tart and airy light, went well with the soft vanilla sponges.
Overall, we enjoyed our ‘humble’ tasting set lunch here to reminisce our first dating place (~ 6 years back).
Too many other restaurants to venture into, so I figured it will take me a long while to be back here again.
