Since its opening @ 313 for more than half a year, I’ve been eyeing this Italian cafe for the longest time ever. Its cosy-looking setup is what attracts me, and to dine in the midst of the crazy shopping crowd should make quite an experience too! 😉 Finally had the chance to try it out and boy, I was lost for words. *Pls excuse the pix due to the lighting at the restaurant 🙂
If you love Marche’s Wild Mushroom Soup (which i do!), then you’ll find Tratorria’s take a little lacking in punch and wholesome mushroom bits. As a starter, it’s good, without filling you up too quickly.
OOOH… we adored this. Was kinda like our saving grace from the mains. Heart the mushroom with garlic too. Fragrant bits! The sauce that accompanied was sour, sweet and black. Does any1 know what’s it called?
The Man ate this and exclaimed “It’s too zalty!” I had a mouthful of it and declared it WAY better than mine 😦
I have to say, this is like 1 of the worst I’ve ever eaten (excluding homecooked) and it was an impossible disappointment. At $18.90, that makes it the most exp one on the menu but the noodles were overcooked and looked miserably like Maggi noodles. It was TOOOO salty and the crayfish were miserably tiny. Swensen’s famous Crayfish Pasta has crayfish that look like it. This just looked like a giant tiger prawn. *sigh*
Lesson learnt: Never judge a restaurant by its appearance and ambience. Sad 😦
