Food Tasting Session at Ricciotti Star Vista (061112)

I was invited to a 2 hour (12 noon to 2 pm) food tasting event by Nuffnang and Ricciotti Pte Ltd at their third outlet, next to Buona Vista MRT Station! The new outlet opens everyday from 10am to 10pm.

Ricciotti is pronounced as REE-CHORE-TEE, derived from the famous ancient Biblical scholar and archeologist in the early 1900s, conveying the importance of Italian rich culture and history at the restaurant.

Ricciotti Pizza Pasta Grill is a "cucina nostrana" (i.e. home-style) feel Italian restaurant with an aim to be the destination of choice for authentic yet affordable Italian gourmet food in Singapore. It is the tradition of sharing which reflects the warmth of eating Italian food.

When I first entered the restaurant, the caricature of Italian heroes on the wall caught my eyes! They actually reminded me of the chinese movie Mural 画壁 :)

While waiting for the Executive Chef Gero Dimaria to prepare our food, we kept ourselves busy by playing the paper games supplied to us. Great to divert our attention from our Iphones and Ipads! For those without pens or pencils, feel free to ask the friendly crew for assistance.

I tried the signature fruit soda BLOOD ORANGE at the recommendation of restaurant manager Mark. A drink to make me remember that Halloween has just gone by!

My personal favourite signature dish of the day is PIZZOTTO, pizza with bacon, mushrooms, egg, pomodoro and mozzarella! The whole pizza is actually cut up into 8 pieces and I had a double :)

We also had the opportunity to sample some of their best-sellers too.

The restaurant captures a contemporary and warm ambiance while diners enter the restaurant from the bar to the restaurant. It is definitely an ideal place for customers who are looking for a spot to chill-out and relax away from the crowd.
