Buona Terra

T. Dining by Singapore Tatler - - Italian -

Buona Terra is a con­ve­nient es­cape from the hus­tle and bus­tle of the city. Din­ers have the op­tion to choose the four- or five-course menu, and also have the free­dom to cus­tomise it. The Car­bonara Diversa is an out­stand­ing cre­ation cooked with­out the use of cream; chef Denis Luc­chi sprin­kles it with grated house-cured egg yolk and sea­sonal truf­fles for added umami. The Ja­panese tile­fish is cooked un­til the scales are crisp, and is pre­sented beau­ti­fully on a plate with zuc­chini flower filled with Ja­panese hairy crab. Car­ni­vores will adore the nutty and aro­matic char­coal-grilled Ibérico se­creto, which pairs well with wines. The wine list is care­fully cu­rated by knowl­edge­able som­me­lier Gabriele Riz­zardi and there’s a wide range of choices—from mid-range bot­tles to stel­lar ones such as Do­maine de la Ro­manée-conti. Adding to the mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence is the sincere ser­vice; the staff make you feel as if you’re vis­it­ing a close friend’s home.

TATLER TIP

There’s a fo­cused list of wines by the glass, but you’ll get the best se­lec­tion when you let the ca­pa­ble som­me­lier know your pref­er­ences.
