Trattoria Lafiandra, Prinsep Street

Tagliatelle Bolognese

We gave Trattoria Lafiandra a try tonight (46 Prinsep Street #01-01, 6238-8746). It was a bit tough to find at first, as it was buried among a bunch of bars with big neon signs, none of which suggested an Italian restaurant lurking in the midst. But after finally finding it, the food turned out to be pretty good, be it the rich ham ravioli, or the mushroom soup. The minestrone was thin but still refreshing, and the tagliatelle bolognese was decent.

Free BruschettaWould I come back though? Eh...probably not. The food, while better than average, still did not evoke that emotional reaction that Cantina did. Plus, the service was so slow tonight that we decided to skip dessert on the assumption that it would take too long. At least they brought out some tasty airy bruschetta as a starter to appease us during the long wait.

Well, they do appear to be open until midnight seven days a week though, so I suppose this can be a decent fallback if I get off work too long as I'm not in a rush to get anywhere afterwards.
