02052014 – Piccolo Fratini’s Restaurant

Sister and I had dinner at Piccolo Fratini’s Restaurant yesterday evening after I finished work around 7:30p.m. in the evening. Specifically told her to come and pick me later than usual as I had quite a lot of pending works in hand. We intended to go Senja Restaurant, Kiulap for dinner. I even called in to make a reservation for two. But unfortunately, it was pouring cats and dogs the time when I left work. So, the both of us decided not to drive far for dinner as the road visibility was not clear either. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

So, dinner it was at Piccolo Fratini’s Restaurant. The restaurant smelled nice of baking pizzas as we entered the place. There was only a table of patrons at the time when we arrived. Took the both of us quite some time to decide what we wanted to have and we ended up with two beverages, an appetizer, pizza and pasta.

Lime Juice | B$5.25

Sister’s choice of beverage and that was quite an expensive glass of juice! Thankfully, the juice was indeed pure blended with lime rather than with those lime extract or syrup. The beverage turned out to be extremely sour. If you have an extremely low threshold with sour beverage, I would suggest you not ordering as you might not like it.

Hot Chocolate | B$4.00

My choice of drink. I intended to order Avocado Milkshake at first but decided not to as I felt sick after drinking an entire glass few weeks ago when having an early lunch with some acquaintances from work. This was okay but probably made with those instant Cadbury chocolate powder.

Funghi Repieni Al Forno | B$14.15

Oven baked stuffed mushrooms with cream cheese and spinach served with tomato coulis and salad bouquet.

This is something you would love if you are a huge fan of mushrooms, spinach and cream cheese. The number of stuffed mushrooms they serve is probably depending on the size of the mushrooms or they had really adjusted the portions.

The first time I had this, it was at RMS Portview Restaurant for Eldie’s birthday. They served a total of 7 stuffed mushrooms and it was for B$14 only. Anyways, the mushrooms were baked to perfection. They were juicy and the portion of spinach in a mushroom was generous too.

Quatro Stagioni | B$16.25

Tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese then quarterly topped with mushrooms, artichokes, olives and smoked salmon.

My personal verdicts on this pizza were that the artichokes and smoked salmon were too salty for my liking. And I believed the tomato sauce was slightly too salty as well. But this has a good portion. 4 slices per person if this was shared between two. Toppings came in quarterly form as mentioned in the menu.

Tagliatelle Ai Funghi | B$16.75

Special homemade spinach pasta with mushroom, onion, parsley, parmesan cheese and cream sauce in fresh tomato sauce. 

This was a nice plate of pasta. But unfortunately, the portion of the mushroom was too little for the portion of the pasta. I preferred the Creamy Fettuccine Carbonara from Savy’s Brasserie, Mabohai. And the pasta was a little bit overcooked for our liking. All in all, this was a good plate of pasta but they could do a little bit of adjustments in terms of the portion of the mushroom and the way the pasta was cooked.
