"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Al Dente Trattoria

The Al Dente Trattoria is an Italian restaurant featuring Italian pastas and pizzas. The food is not considered pricey considering its location. They had good customer service and the place is quiet and clean. The waiter kept promoting to us their aragosta risotto – slipper lobster & confit tomato where they are having their promotion at $58, serving enough for the two of us.

The restaurant is available for private dinners and events with a capacity of 40 pax and 100 pax for the 1st and 2nd level respectively.

A pity that my friend wasn’t that hungry, so we only ordered one fired-wood pizza (12″) – crispy pizza with foccacia with melted mozzarella, ricotta, parma ham, spring onion and drizzled with truffle oil. Otherwise we would have ordered the lobster risotto too.

Fired Wood Pizza $18

Our dessert to finish the meal: torta di cioccolato – bitter chocolate torte with fresh berries and vanilla gelato

Bitter Chocolate $14

A pity that their food is only so-so.  The Makansutra Gluttons Bay (local foodfare) beside it have much more appealing powers for its food.
