“Great place for a girls night out.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

Met up with a friend for dinner and had heard rave reviews about this place from friends so decided to give it a try. Based on previous experiences of not being able to get a table, I made an appointment which I was glad I did. I had failed to notice that they had 1-for-1 mains on Mondays and the queue was incredibly long.

Had the mushroom soup to start off the meal, and it was real thick and really pretty good.

Main was the Seared Scallops Linguine with Prawn Bisque, which did not disappoint with the big scallops and prawns.

What meal is complete without dessert. Dessert was shared amongst the 2 of us. We had the red velvet cupcake as well as the chocolate fudge cake. The dessert itself was well-worth another trip down to brave the queues . ^^

Will definitely be back again. ^^

“Rather average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

It was one of the girls birthdays, so after wandering along Tanglin and Orchard Rds, we decided to go into ION and have a birthday lunch. Things didn't start well unfortunately. One of our party accidentally knocked over a glass of orange juice on the table beside ours and it went all over the poor girl who of course was wearing white jeans :-0. After a mop up and much apology we ordered Bottle of pink fizzy. As seems to be always the problem in Singapore restaurants, they didn't have by cold. Always annoys me no end. So they offered us 5 glasses of what they did have cold whilst we waited for the other one to cool. The young waitress brought the glasses to our table and as she was serving them, promptly dropped the whole lot down the back of one the girls. Glass smashed everywhere, champagne everywhere. The staff were marvellous and very quickly cleaned up an whisked our girl off the bathroom to help her wash and dry out. She was very lucky not have been cut by the smashed glass. Eventually food was ordered and we had fresh glasses of pink fizz which came from goodness knows where since they had said there was nine cold??? Food arrives and it is less than exciting. In fact, boring. I ordered linguine and to have penne as there was no linguine. The deserts however looked fabulous, and although I didn't have any, the girls seemed to enjoy them. The bill arrives and we are a little shocked to have not been given a bit of a discount for the smashed glass down the back of our friend. They did bring us a cupcake each to take home with us, so I suppose a bit of compensation. Very expensive for what I thought was ordinary food.

“Good Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Good Italian food and fresh juice eatery in Ion Shopping Center. I enjoy their Carbenara. They have non-Italian dishes as well.

“Classy place for terrible food.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

The place is suppose to be classy, known for their sticky date pudding, but nothing more. Their food is over priced, but tasteless and not worth even sacrificing calories for. Don't bother visiting, unless you intend to just have a drink, period.

“Pricey but excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Highly recommend to spend an afternoon partaking their hi-tea for 2. It will set you back at around SGD40.00. A great place to sit & catch up with you friend. If you want something substantial, they serve full menu - pasta, steaks, salads, etc. Always try their desserts - excellent cakes, pastries. Different types of teas available too.
