i've been seeing lots of reviews of La Nonna .... if we had a choice, the bf and I would try and go back to pasta brava whenever we could.... BUT we're in singapore, and there's so many restaurants that going back to the same place over and over again just doesn't make sense so we decided to give La Nonna at Holland V a go. I have to say i thought the appetizers were unusually higher than other restaurants, so we settled for a pizza and 2 pastas (YES - between 2 people! )
You can find La Nonna's menu here: http://lanonna.sg/#menu
First up - the Pizza - we ordered the DIAVOLA (SGD 23.00)
Tomato, Mozzarella and spicy Italian ‘Calabrese’ Salami
This was delicious but insanely spicy!! They left out the fact that they put small cut up chillis in the pizza! I don't know if i liked that part as much as it just left a burning sensation in my mouth - i would have been happy with the level of spiciness that the Italian Salami had to offer.
However still a tasty dish - that i might order again.
The boyfriend ordered : PAPPARDELLE ( SGD 24 ) Homemade Pappardelle Pasta with Oxtail ragout and Rosemary. This was a very delicious dish and definitely one with a strong flavor but a definite order again!
I ordered the crab meat Linguine (SGD 23) - Linguine Pasta served with Crab Meat in Tomato Cream sauce and fresh Basil
I am a lover of cream sauces and i sure do love crab, so when i saw them both in a dish - i just had to order it! The only negative note i have on this dish is that the smell of the crab was slightly stronger than usual, however with nice big slices of garlic, it definitely made up for it!
Overall a pleasant visit with fantastic company as always!
