This is a revisit to Sopra Cucina Italian Restaurant, also *Charmaine's favorite. For full review of my past visit, click here. Anyway, this restaurant offers a menu that serves up Sardinian Cuisine, and boosts of a beautiful decor which is an ode to the glamorous days of post-war Italy. Service alternated between warm and cold - depending on who you were dealing with, and during peak or non-peak hours.
While waiting for *Charmaine to arrive, I polished off a couple of Red Wine. Their Happy Hour ends at 19.00 hours - but during the Happy Hour, one could get a glass of house wine at a mere SGD$9.00 and Prosecco at SGD$10.00.
The complimentary Bread was very delicious - fresh, utterly crispy, and went absolutely well with the olive dip. I usually abstain from consuming much bread before a meal, especially if I knew I was going to have a heavy main course - but these bread slices deterred the usual resistance.
Both of us coincidentally settled for the Seafood Fregola (SGD$28.00) - a conscous-like roast semolina pasta with seafood. In my last review, I described the grainy pasta to bear similar texture to barley grains, and the feeling remained the same even as I was consuming the delicious pasta now. The gravy was rich in flavour, infusing the pasta sumptuously with its goodness; the seafood consisted of scallops, prawns and squids- generous portions that served only to enhance flavour and texture of the interesting pasta.
Too bad we were too full to tackle desserts - I would've loved to try Tiramisu or something. I will definitely return for sure, for that.
