Kucina Italian Restaurant, Singapore – Review

davTo commemorate the end of my Singapore family trip, we had a farewell lunch at Kucina. It’s never easy saying goodbye you rarely get to reunite with so we wanted to end our time together with a nice celebration. We heard that Kucina was a halal authentic Italian food (definitely not easy to find) so there was no hesitation about trying it out!

Glancing around the restaurant, you can immediately notice the rustic vibes – from the brick walls to the wooden furniture. The setting has an inviting feel to it.  In fact, it’s not only the decor, but the staff was welcoming as well.

We ordered two appetizers to share while waiting for the main courses to be served: Bruschetta (SGD 6) and Truffle Fries (SGD 15). Both these dishes had a touch of elegance to them and were thoroughly satisfying.

As there was a group of us, we got to try quite a variety of items on the menu! I got everyone to give a comment on their dishes, even though I did use the blog as an excuse to taste most of them myself.

Risotto Di Mare – SGD 23.80 : “Looks heavy but actually tastes very fresh and nice. It’s good for people who like the flavour of tomato cream, or just anything that is tomato-based.”
dav
Tortellini Di Manzo – SGD 23 : “Nice balance of flavours in this one. The meat goes well with the smooth mushroom cream sauce. Looks like a simple dish but it was indeed very satisfying, and filling!
Pizza Al Crudo - SGD 20
Pizza Al Crudo – SGD 20 : “Very tasty, a lot of arugula on it, good for those who want to get in their leafy greens for the day! It also had a generous amount of ham on top of the cheese and delicious tomato sauce underneath . The only slight complaint would be that the ham is a bit salty for my taste.”
dav
Bisteca – SGD 24.80 : “The steak had perfect seasoning and overall a satisfying meal, I’m very happy with my choice. The only thing I would point out is that they should have rendered the fat more and temperature was not exactly as requested.”

 

Kucina is in the range of high priced restaurants (but if I’m honest – as someone living in Malaysia, everything seems expensive in Singapore) , but I would recommend it for people who are looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion. There were quite a few couples around the restaurant, so it’s definitely the perfect place to bring your date!
