Went to this place guided by the tripadvisor App in my phone. I was duly impressed by the 50+ reviews giving it a 4.5 average rating. Reality was stubbornly at odds with the ratings, and I really wonder sometimes how ratings happen.
-Dining room is cold. Cheap decoration. No table cloths. Menu on paper place setting. Very poor lighting makes things look even sadder.
-Wine list: Only italian wines (this is not necessarily bad in itself, on the contrary but read on), no explanation on the wine or the grapes, no year for the wine. When asked waiter for a recommendation on wine, he just pointed at the most expensive items on the list.
-Food: Middle of the road. We shared a thin pizza-style focaccia as a starter. Nothing to call home about. I had gnocchi with some italian cheese and modena vinegar as a main course. Unispiring and a very small portion.
-Service: Very detached. We needed a taxi to go back to our hotel. They could not get one on the phone (pre-Chinese New Year period, which I can understand). Owner suggested that we took the subway back to our hotel.....
On leaving the place, I realized this place is SO close to Oso, which is probably one of the best Italian tables in Singapore. I was so mad / sad to have missed an opportunity to go back to Oso.
