Buono has a real Italian owner. I assume he was the owner because he entered the restaurant and greeted everyone warmly. I figured he must be Salvatore Buono. The restaurant’s decor is unique with playing cards stuck to the ceiling. It’s located on 27 Lichfield Road in Serangoon Gardens, if you’re looking for an authentic Italian Restaurant in the north.
Just a side-note: Sunsets in Singapore are so pretty.
Love the blue tiled table outside the restaurant.
The outside of the restaurant is pretty charming as well. But this place is easy to miss and I think many people won’t realize it’s here unless they read Time Out Singapore or some other reviews.
Cool design feature.
I enjoyed the Calamari the most. The sauce was a tad sourish but perhaps that’s how authentic sauces with added sugar taste like.
The was the best salad I have ever had. I loved the unique strawberry dressing. I guess this is spinach but there wasn’t any bitterness at all. And this is coming from someone who doesn’t like vegetables very much.
The pizza was good but I have had similar wood fired ones before so I wasn’t really blown away. Or perhaps I was too full at that point.
Oh yes, as we were waiting for the meal we were served with garlic bread.
We were seated at huge wooden tables.
The Cafe Latte was a bit too light.
We also indulged in Tiramisu and Creme Brulee. Think I prefer the French Style Creme Brulee.
The salad looks lovely! As do the sturdy tables – like you, I prefer something solid to rest my food on. 🙂 On Robertson Quay there’s another Italian restaurant run by an Italian with nice food AND a ladies night (on Wednesday). It’s called Sailors and it’s across from the Bella Pasta-chain. If you do give it a whirl, try and sit outside: they’ve recreated a beach inside the tables 😀
The last time I was in that area I saw an interesting restaurant that was decorated like the interior of a ship. Sailors sounds interesting and ladies night is always great. Thanks for the tip.
