The last time I dined at Trattoria Culina was years back, when 313 @ Somerset just opened. Well, good to know that this authentic Italian restaurant has planted its feet firmly here, despite the changing trends and other restaurants closing down, etc. Hence, it was time to revisit for a good old Italian dinner.
I like the "chopping board" menu - so adorable. Anyway, I started with a glass of Malbec red wine (SGD$16.00) whilst browsing the menu for food.
The Beau had a glass of Moscato (SGD$16.00) which was sweet and light the way I liked it - hence I had a glass later on too - promotion was 2 glasses of wine, free one glass.
For mains, we shared the Baked Lasagna with Bolognese and Bechamel (SGD$19.90) - tender layers of minced beef ragu enclaved between layers of cheese and pasta, a sticky and chewy delight, teasing the palate with rich flavors and texture.
Then we also had a Ravioli Al Funghi (SGD$24.90) - pretty, scallop-shaped ravioli bursting with cheese , tossed in a delicious cream sage sauce. There were at least two types of mushrooms spotted, adding to the dish the distinctive sweetness of mushrooms. The ravioli was taut and once bitten in, the melting cheese exploded in the mouth. This was a fabulous selection.
For dessert, we shared an Apple Crumble (SGD$9.90) - a delicious bowl of fresh apple cubes, rocks of pastry and a large scoop of vanilla ice-cream. It was warm and tasty, not too sweet, with the large rocks of crunchy crusts adding bite and flavor to the whole dessert overall.
Overall, we were pleased with the service and food of Trattoria Culina Italian restaurant. Here is a sneak peek of the Calzone (half-moon folded pizza filled with cheese, sausage, mushrooms, artichokes and tomato sauce) like a large "curry puff" that I had during my first visit here. It was another delicacy that my friend and I enjoyed.
