Italiannies Pasta Pizza & Vino

It was another birthday celebration for a friend and colleague and we had arranged a dinner at Italiannies which located at the previous Singapore Power Building. Now it has undergone into a dining and retail property as TripleOne Somerset.

The restaurant has a nice and relax ambient. The interior design are mostly in wood and gives a homely feeling and very country style. It will also be a good place to chill out and have some wine or beer after a day of hard work ^.~

To start off with our dinner, we ordered a bottle of white wine which the waitress recommended. The taste of the wine was smooth and flavorful.

Sicilian Chicken Salad ~ Diced chicken breasts, mangoes, red grapes and pine nuts, tossed in Lemon-dijon dressing on crispy romaine lettuce.

Grilled Salmon Spinach Salad ~ Marinated salmon with fresh spinach, arugula, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions,roasted peppers, green olives, Parmesan and sun-dried tomato vinaigrette.
Their Salads are fresh and delicious. Beside the wine, another good start to stimulate our appetizer.

Spinach Artichoke Formaggio ~ This sauce dip is absolutely yummy and very cheesy.
Goes well with the bread.

Clams Lombardi ~ Simmered in white wine, olive oil, oregano, garlic and parsley
The sauce was not too bad but the clams are small, little meat and not very tangy.

Pepperoni Pizza ~ Pepperoni, mozzarella cheese and shaved onions.

HAM & MUSHROOMS PIZZA ~ Ham, tomato, mozzarella cheese and mixed mushrooms.

Fettuccine pasta with fresh button mushrooms and smoked bacon in a Parmesan cream sauce. This pasta was just too much for us and we did not finish all up.

ROASTED CHICKEN ITALIANNIES ~ Spicy roasted chicken with peppers and rosemary potatoes in a tangy pan-gravy wine sauce. This is one of the restaurant specialties.

The chicken meat was soft and tender. The gravy was tasty and peppery. The potatoes were a little hard so we dipped with the sauce to eat.

Personally, I liked this dish as it had a strong flavor which suited my taste bud and moreover, i was craving for a savory dish. ^0^

AUSTRALIAN GRILLED LAMB CHOP IN HONEY ONION SAUCE ~Australian marinated lamb chop served with onion and honey sauce.

This dish was disappointing :( as my friend had the first bite and it tasted bitter and charred. The honey sauce was not handled properly and burnt. You could see from the photo that it was blacken on the surface. We feedback to the waitress and she felt apologetic and gave us replacement of another dish. But we decided not as we were quite full. So they cancelled this dish in our bill.

As for dessert, we skipped away and headed to Sauce @ the Esplanade Park for chat & drinks :P

My strawberry Mojito Cocktail ^.~

I love this snack ~ Luncheon Meat Chips
Thinly sliced and fried till crispy and dipped with chilli sauce.
Oh that cheesy sauce was for our nacho chips :)

It was a fun and enjoyable Friday nite.
Happy Birthday AWB and Linda!

  3. Luncheon meat chips???? Wow, I have never heard of that--so interesting! It's just crispy?

    P.S. I tagged you for a 7 links challenge :D Hope you can join in, and details are here!

  4. The chips are thinly sliced and quite salty. I still prefer it done by just pan fried.
