La Grotta Cucina Italiana

M has always been curious about about La Grotta  Cucina Italiana whenever she passes by this Italian restaurant.  So for her birthday treat, she decided it was about time to try this place out.

Scaletta Napolitana, P280
Fresh mozzarella layered with tomato and sprinkled with basil, oregano and olive oil.

Spaghetti Aglio Olio E Gamberetti, P340
Spaghetti with spicy green pepper, shrimp, olive oil and anchovies.  I didn't like this dish at first bite.  The shrimps seems to be not as fresh as we would have liked.  In a last bid to save this dish before we order something else, we asked for some sliced lemons.  The lemon juice gave this dish the oomph it needed. Dish saved.

Duck Ravioli
This was suggested by our waiter and it was good.

Tagliatelle Di Tartufo Crudo, P390
Flat pasta with porcini and truffle cream sauce and parma ham.  Mushrooms, truffle and cream, now how can you go wrong with that?

Insalata Caprino, P280
Mixed greens, asparagus, tomatoes, pecorino cheese and goat cheese in balsamic sauce.

We couldn't decide what dessert to order so we got 4 out of the 5 desserts on the offer.
Tiramisu, P185

Pannacotta, P190

Tartufo Ciocolato, P200
Sansrival, P190

Wished this cozy corner was where we were seated.
