Modesto’s At Vivocity

admin

We were supposed to catch the movie 2010, but realised tickets were sold out when we reached. Hence my friend suggested Modesto’s for dinner instead. (coincidentally a pre-b’day dinner as well) Good thing we actually missed the movie, otherwise I’d probably missed out on some mouth watering tiramisu.

A little bit of history, Modesto’s has been around in Singapore for more than a decade. Of which I think the flagship outlet was at Orchard Parade Hotel. The Italian restaurant chain was founded by an Italian chef, Modesto Marini, and till date has expanded to 3 outlets in Singapore, as well as Malaysia and Indonesia.

Not too sure about the rest, but I liked the ambiance of this outlet at Vivocity. The interior lighting a was a little bit dim which I thought was nice and cosy. There’s also an al fresco area that just overlooks the harbour and Sentosa. Definitely a nice place to sit down and chill at night. A slight draw back though, would be that it can get rather noisy during the peak hours, and somehow, the aircon was a little chilly that night.

After some deliberation, we decided to go for the dinner set for 2. At $48 nett, I thought it was very reasonably priced, with one option from the Appetizer Selection, two main course, and one dessert.

Bread with Olive Oil & Vinaigrette

We started off with some homemade bread with olive oil and vinaigrette. Though the bread was quite soft and sparse, but I thought it would be much better if the outer layer was a little crisp. Then again maybe its because of our “extended” photo taking session.

Insalata Alla Cesare - Cesar Salad

Next for appetizers we had the Insalata Alla Cesare or rather simply known as Cesar Salad. The plate was filled with lots of fresh green lettuce, topped with thinly sliced cheese, croutons, n bacon bits. The salad dressing used was sorta creamy, with a slight yet distinct garlic taste.

Next up was the Pizza Gamberett and Spaghetti Allla Carbonara. The pizza caught my attention because the description said it consists of lemon marinated shrimps. Of which the lemon part made it sound quite refreshing. To be honest, I think I could only taste a hint of lemon within the shrimps, and also I think the cheese had some lemon juice in it too. Very slight though. The crust was really thin, light, and crispy. I for one, wouldn’t even consider Pizza Hut after tasting this.

The memory that’s left within me of the spaghetti is rather vague, but I think the done-ness was pretty Al Dante style. The sauce wasn’t too creamy either. Relatively speaking, I think the spaghetti here can take on Prego’s, hands down anytime.

Tiramisu Modestos

Last but not least, my beloved Italian dessert. I really really loved this one a lot. The cheese was very light and yet not too sweet, while the lady’s finger inside was generously soaked with aromatic espresso, and coffee liquor. If you love Tiramisu, then the one at Modesto’s cannot be missed out.

If you’re in the vicinity of Vivocity and craving for some Italian cuisine, then Modesto’s is definitely the place to go. Do check out credit card promotions and the lunch / dinner sets available which are generally quite value for money.
