The Singapore Art Museum featured Singapore and regional art – none of the grand masters, and definitely cannot afford any Renaissance men like Da Vinci. The closest thing that you can get from Italy is the Italian food in this Italian restaurant tucked away at one end of the museum. I was there during the school holidays because they always have a special show for children during the school holidays – very interactive and good introduction to art for children under 12. Now back to the food.

It had a very decent lunchtime crowd given that this is a hazy day, and it’s a Sunday. Mostly families, with some tourists, so expect some rowdiness once in a while. The service staff were a mixed of Filipinos and Chinese, so you need an ear for accents and point at the right stuff as they may not understand how a Singaporean says spaghetti bolognese or lagsana. Despite that, sharp service nevertheless.

Pizza Bread

Pizza bread was complimentary. Slightly salted with flavourful rosemary and thymes sprinkled on the surface. It was what it was – pizza crust.

Minestrone

The minestrone was watery and a disappointment, and we started to worry about the rest of the dishes to follow.

Seafood Soup

But when the seafood soup came, it was a delight. Filled to the brim with clams, mussels, prawns, squids and pieces of fish, the toasted bread that came with the soup soaked up the thick broth and was a wonderful tomato and seafood taste. Very nice, will order when I visit again.

Agnello Al Rosamarino

The roast lamb chops that followed were good. Served on a bed of mash and salad with a liberal sprinkle of rosemary sauce made from au jus, the crusty chops were tender and salted properly. Jo did not like the lamb taste, but I thought it was just fine.

Lasagna

The lasagna did not disappoint as well. You can taste the parmesan cheese and you can feel the texture of the cheese bits, and you knew that it was not made from parmesan cheese powder that most used.

Linguine Al Nero

Little Angel ate all of the linguine, leaving the rest of us wondering the taste. It must be good I guarantee you, or our resident 7-year old gourmet of Nero-class pasta can vouch for that.

Crostata

Vanilla cream filled puff with vanilla ice cream with a raspberry sauce. Quite standard, but still a good sweet ending.

Tiramisu
Tiramisu

Again, did not have a chance to taste this as our little gourmet ate it all. Must be good.

Service was OK, ambiance tacky, food was value for money and above average, $50 pax, good for a leisure afternoon lunch or when you are around that area.
