Pasta Fresca Da Salvatore Review

Pasta Fresca Da Salvatore prides itself in using sauces and ingredients from South Italian recipes. They boast of recreating authentic, crispy Italian thin-crust pizzas in Singapore. We were disappointed to find that the restaurant was still closed at 10.30am...

We waited about an hour before the chef arrived. Thankfully, there is free parking! You have to call any one of the restaurants before you're allowed to enter the gantry. It was quite strange that the waiter asked us to wait outdoors. Despite the blazing weather, they did not allow us into the restaurant even though they were not setting tables or doing anything in particular.

Crespelle Al Funghi (W) — S$20.40

Before you read any further, you should know that there are 16 pastas to choose from in the restaurant. We ordered crespelle al fungi, an italian-style crepe filled with a delightful, creamy sauce of sautéed porcini and white mushrooms, onions, parmesan cheese. The dish is baked in the oven and you get to choose between tomato or cream sauce. Of course, my foodie partner-in-crime chose the latter. He is addicted to anything creamy and buttery... and unfortunately, I'm not really a fan. *laughs*

Well, there is a stark difference in terms of the look of the Crespelle Al Funghi. I must say the dish looks really, really terrible and it is probably an insult to italian dishes.

Is this really Crespelle Al Funghi?
We couldn't differentiate the different layers. Initially, it tasted great but it was quite cloying halfway through! Definitely too creamy for our liking!

Fettucine Chicken & Mushroom Alfredo — S$19.20

We got this item from SUGAR, the mobile app. This fresh fettucine pasta is tossed with Parmesan cheese, diced chicken, and sautéed mushrooms. This thick and creamy pasta is best shared among two — its buttery fragrance is bound to permeate your nostrils. The fettucine is much preferred as compared to the Crespelle!

Service was average — there were only one waiter and waitress around and we were the only ones in the restaurant. Perhaps I expected too much— I'm quite unsure if these dishes are worth the prices as my mum is able to cook these at a similar standard.
