This seems to be the most suitable place for having a party of four people to venture ourselves in the flavours of Italian cuisine. Having four people seems to be THE magic number since you can have a little bite of everything. As you can see from the pictures below, we ordered ten tapas all at an affordable price, we have to say that not a single tapas was a disappointment...except for the white chocolate tiramisu was overly sweet to our taste. 

Every tapas has a nice contrast of flavours and were perfectly seasoned. Here are our absolute favourites... The capresse with burrata consists of well-roasted tomatoes served with fresh burrata cheese - refreshing and melt-in-your-mouth starter. Our second favourite is their signature tapas, the lobster cannelloni - fresh lobster taste with a white sauce that meld well together.

The pizettes are cut into four pieces, the crust was soft and fluffy. A must order is the foie gras and fig combo is smoothing, oily, salty, sweet all in one bite. The gorgonzala, pear and pine nuts pizette is another great combo - nice balance of texture and flavors. The homemade porcetta, probably the only homemade meat in their menu, was moist served with an appropriate amount of fat, well-seasoned with a pleasant herb taste. To finish off our meal, the panna cotta has a soft and silky custard; the acidity of the lime melded well with the tartness of the raspberry coulis. In all, we were very satisfied of our dining experience and definitely worth a revisit.
