hearty meal with good company . la nonna, holland village

Truly a surprise from someone cheeky tonight. I had no idea about our dinner at La Nonna at all until we finally stepped into the restaurant. La Nonna, meaning 'The Grandmother' in Italian, serves traditional Italian country cuisine, much like what grandma would usually prepare in an unpretentious and inviting Trattoria atmosphere. This is def a place for discerning diners who prefer to have a hearty meal with good company. 

Good company, that is part of the beauty of all encounters in life. Thanks for everything, really.

Our hearty meal started with this complimentary starter breads and our choices of soup.

Zuppa Di Zucca, traditional Italian pumpkin soup with croutons.

Cioppino, fish and seafood soup in tomato base with fresh herbs and garlic bread croutons.

I decided to have Risotto, carnaroli risotto saffron with asparagus and sautéed prawns as my main.

Whereas cheeky's pick was Ravioli, lobster ravioli with Arrabbiata sauce and fresh herbs for tonight. Slightly spicy despite the decent taste, the dish doesn't go well with my bad cough though. Thus, I have to call it a miss after a pity bite.

And lastly, my all time fav! The dessert for tonight was Tiramisu, the traditional Venetian mascarpone cheese cake for the last. Not forgetting to thanks the gentlemen for our drinks from the house too!


ps. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 when I caught a fish alive :p
