Il Divo @ Terrace Hock Choon


Click here for earlier entry on Il Divo (June 9, 2009).
A lovely place with sterling service, though some of its food misses the mark.


Cappelletti in beef broth. Not a bad starter, but the soup could have been thicker, more flavourful and less peppery. Still, we lapped the bowl clean.


Meat-stuffed ravioli in sage & butter sauce. Tasted fresh and homemade.


Porcini risotto. Bland and kinda watery, like Chinese claypot rice gone wrong.


Yellow tuna steak in parmesan sauce with spinach & mixed veggies. The recipe sounded excellent and the portion was hearty, but the meaty fish bordered on being dry and tough, despite having been grilled to a nice pinkish colour.


Pizza Margherita. The crust was too thick, though the toppings were tasty.


Chocolate Rum & Pistachio gelati. Wonderfully soft, smooth and sweet.


Archeo Grillo.


Il Divo,

  2. Yellow tuna steak looks fine from the top surface, but the side looks really dry and over-done. The Porcini risotto looks like "lor mai farn"/glutinous rice..haha. Risottos for me ought to be creamy looking and tasting.

  3. Lfb: u're in luck... since pepper never seems to be blamed for high blood pressure, cancer or any serious ailment! =)
    elrond: yeah, something went wrong with the preparation... But I'd still recommend this place if u're looking for a casual, no-frills Italian meal :D

  5. Tng: ya, it's probably more difficult to prepare and to store, so it's worth ordering whenever it's on any menu =)
