Il Ponticello are delicious fusion of flavors that would transport you a food travel to Italy.
Thought as a clubbing foodie area that I didn’t dare to check it out even I came across the location of Il Ponticello almost everyday.
For those who are new, Il Ponticello dishes are delicious fusion of Italian flavors.
The said fine dining restaurant has been remodeled with elegance on beautiful redesigned interior that creates intimate and relaxing experience.
My favorite starters as I was already satisfied and I can go home with these two hearty dishes:
Portobello alla griglia – meaty-tasting mushrooms that perfectly grill the caps whole until they’re crusty. Crispy that infused the spicyness of herbs and olive oil making a standout taste.
Seared Tuna w/ Wasabi Sauce is irresistibly simple healthy and utterly fresh. Delicious as the tuna glaze is rich yet not too heavy once you started digging it.
Rotolo Originale vesrion of Ponti hand rolled crunchy pizza baked w/ Mortadella, Ricotta has rich tomato cream sauce topped with pesto. One piece is already very filling that spiked the whole taste.
Pizza Valdostana topped with arugula which I find also so simple w/ ham, cream and Mozzarella is bursting with oozing flavor – chewy but thin and crispy.
I think I have enough on that night but please the Lasagna Carbonara crowned with whole egg yolk rich with those white velvety sauce is gooey and soft once tasted that cannot be missed.
One of the mains – Porcheta Alla Romana, rustic pork dish that served to us was moist that even it was sliced so thin, the cracking skin is very visible. Again in grilling, it must be in low and slow to keep its juiciness intact which is also visible w/ this meat. I was already looking for rice here which definitely will order for take home as hubby is a meat-lover who would surely love this.
Wagyu Burger grilled medium that made it tender and savory. So pleasing in feature enveloped with lavish melted cheese sauce that made the taste exquisite.
A share of luxurious sweet dessert escape is the Cheesecake Caramel Panna Cotta, marrying both the softness and decadence that melts slowly the smoothness in your mouth delicately.
Bread pudding with dainty butter cream is new for me. The alcoholic milk shake is delightful and pleasing once you sip it unlike putting it on top of the bread.
In a short period of food escapade, it has transport me to Italy for the evening. That’s enough impressive yet wise decision spending it lovely with Il Ponticello. Till next!
