Tucked away in the lush, landscaped gardens of Shangri-La Singapore, the charming Waterfall Ristorante Italiano is pleased to welcome onboard Chef Simone Loisi – formerly from iO Italian Osteria, as its new Chef de Cuisine. Diners can look forward to enjoying a vibrant and sumptuous showcase of dishes that spans his hometown specialties, signature handmade pastas and main courses.
We had the opportunity to savor some of his dishes beginning with the starter Caprese Di Mare which features a refreshing and citrusy dressing matched with slices of house-cured salmon with Juniper berries and orange zest served with flower capers, Napoli buffalo mozzarella and crisp fennel.
Then we had the Porchetta Alla Birra, Chef Simone rendition of this sumptuous beer-marinated pork belly that is beautifully complemented with a tangy homemade sauerkraut. One of Chef Simone’s pizza creations is the Mortadella e Stracciatella , a ‘cicchio’ or Southern Italian flatbread draped with dollops of luscious Stracciatella cheese, sundried tomatoes and pistachio.
The Linguine Al Crostacei In Crostia Di Pane is the highlight of the meal. Brimming with a medley of pristine crustaceans the likes of one whole lobster, prawns, scallops, mussels and clams and covered with a thin layer of bread dough, the pasta is baked in the oven briefly to render a crusty top which is great for ‘scarpetta’, or soaking and gathering the leftover pasta sauce from the plate.
The other signature pastas include the Gnocchi Mare E Monti, handmade Potato Gnocchi Prawns, Cherry Tomatoes, Porcini Mushrooms with Parmesan Cheese and the Orecchiette Broccoli E Salsiccia prepared with Orecchiette Pasta, Broccoli, Pork Sausage, Chilli and Breadcrumbs flavored with Fennel Seeds.
Main course wise, there is the Polpo Alla Plancia, Mediterranean Octopus Leg with Potato Cream and Mixed Salad while desserts Tiramisu Classico and Cannolo Siciliano Fatto in Casa consisting of Homemade Cannolo, Sweetened Ricotta Cheese, Orange Zest and Bitter Chocolate Chips complete the meal.
