Vespetta at Boat Quay probably stands out with its red vespa at the entrance and later we realised sitting indoor was not the best with the ventilation situation and we were sweating over the meal. Head outside if needed.

Flat Garlic Pizza Focaccia Bread with Rosemary ($10)

Pizza base with a sprinkle of garlic and rosemary made this so fragrant and delicious. We were sold on the density of this.

Authentic Puglia Creamy Burrata Cheese with Grilled Vegetables ($34)

300 grams of creamy goodness and this trumped alot of other burrata cheeses I have eaten locally. So addictive, I am so glad I went ahead with 300 grams instead of the original 150 grams.

Mediterranean Octopus Salad with Wild Rocket and Lemon Dressing ($24)

Chopped salad with marinated octopus and we were all sold on the appetisers. Delicious and we had high expectations of the mains already.

Authentic Orecchiette Pasta with San Marzano Tomato Sauce and Burrata Cheese ($28)

I was already pampered by Bar Cicheti's version and when this arrived, the burrata cheese bit was clearly a let down with hardened bits of cheese. That said the pasta was cooked perfectly and al dente is just what I like about this.

Egg Tagliatelle Pasta with Beef Bolognese Ragout and Aged Parmesan ($25)

Freshly made tagliatelle pasta is perhaps the few pasta courses that actually uses freshly made pasta.

Adriatic Seafood Spaghetti with Sweet Cherry Tomatoes Sauce and Basil  ($29)

Probably the best of the pasta dishes we had with fresh seafood and a really delectable sauce.

Margherita ($22)
San Marzano Tomatoes, Mozzarella and Fresh Basil

After such a stunning start with the appetizer, I would have expected their pizzas to be stellar too but the flavours did not come together as I hoped, somehow. It was a-okay.

Super Calzone ($32)
Folded Baked Pizza with Tomatoes, Mozzarella, Salami, Cooked Ham, Mushroom, and Oregano


Another that had nothing much to scream about. The best thing about their pizzas is the bread.

Roasted Whole Spring Chicken with Lemon and Rosemary  ($29)

Roasted Sea Bass Filet with Roasted Potatoes and Salad ($29)

Neither mains were outstanding either, hinging on way too salty though portions are generous.

Head for the appetizers because that's where they shine.
