Located on the second floor of HillV2 near Bukit Batok, this rustic Italian restaurant is a neighbourhood gem that is often buzzing even on a Monday evening. Think of it as comfort food done right—chefs banter in the bustling open-concept kitchen as they roll out fresh pasta dough with gusto, turning it into homely dishes packed with flavour. Our tip: grab a counter seat to watch the chefs in action.
You’ll find the best of Italy’s cuisine here, even Rome’s street food, which includes the Rice Suppli’, a scrumptious golden-crumbed arancini ball with a melted mozzarella heart. There’s also a traditional Roman schiacciata in plain and stuffed form, the latter served with melting pecorino cheese and plenty of black truffle shavings sandwiched between warm, crusty bread.
From the pasta menu, the orecchiette with pork sausage and saffron sauce is a winner, boasting slightly spicy meat and a light cream sauce. And if you’re looking for a main that pulls out all the stops, order the porchetta—a blossoming ‘flower-shaped’ dome of tender, juicy roasted pork belly slow-baked with wild fennel. Stop at the retail section by the door to stock up on quality truffle oil, homemade biscotti, or some of their delicious sauces.
