It was my birthday about a month after joining the company, and so the lovely ladies in my department asked me to pick a place for a lunch celebration. After weighing a few options and with Ember fully booked, off we went to Forlino instead!
Located at One Fullerton, the Italian restaurant took a little twist and turn to find. After going through the walkway which branches off to several private dining rooms, we arrived at the main dining hall that was a lot smaller than I have imagined. View, nonetheless, was splendid with Marina Bay and MBS in full sight.
Going for the 38++ 3-course set lunch, our meal started off with a warm bun served with a platter of shaved cheese. The combination worked well enough for us to ask for a second round of bread!
Decked in pretty colours, the starter unfortunately looked better than it tasted. Not that it was bad, but we all thought it felt like angmo popiah which lose out to our oriental ones.
Shredded Duck Pasta
Served with al-dente tagliolini, my mains was pretty tasty as the meat clanged onto the noodle strands and blended well with the duck gravy. A pity about the portion though, as it was gone in a matter of forkfuls.
A very chocolately dessert, the thick texture and sweetness was mildly balanced by the raspberry sauce. Better shared than attempted on your own me think.
And yes, the staff were nice enough to sing me a song with the cake. While I wasn't very impressed with the food itself, service was top-notch and I would imagine the ambience to be excellent at night. Return for dinner? Let me think about it!
