We were in the mood for an Italian dinner and heard good things about Angeleno at 20 Gemill Lane, off Club Street, and off we went to try it out.

The restaurant seats no more than 30 per cover at first glance, but we could be wrong. It was just the two of us, so we only had room for starters and pastas and desserts.

To start, we had their highly recommended and reputed crispy flat bread with mozzarella and olive oil, and an order of burrata with tomatoes.

For the price point, the burrata is expensive a SGD32 for a small portion. Quality is what you pay for with the cheese being rich and creamy, and the tomatoes were very plump and sweet and it was drizzled with pesto olive oil. I’d order this again during a repeat visit.

For mains, we ordered the main course sized sweet corn capellacci pasta (picture below) as well as the oriechette with spicy lamb.

Both were very well executed with a right balance of flavours and we thought we recognised the style of preparation for the starters and mains that we ordered. We realised that the head chef was previously from one of our restaurant favourites – Mozza at the Marina Bay Sands.

The homemade pistachio ice cream (SGD8) was decadent and excellent, one of the best pistachio ice cream we’ve had in awhile, including those on our travels to Italy. The tiramisu was listed as the “best in town!” but we’re not a big fan of alcohol-heavy tiramisu. Nonetheless, it was well balanced and made a pleasant dessert for our evening meal.
