[Pici] Bring on the full pasta experience

Seeing lots of expats have visited this place I decided to go early one evening.

Luckily I got there at 6pm because it was full within an hour.

The menu is simple with appetizers, pastas and dessert.

There were four of us so we got a pasta each while we shared the starters.
It is really hard choosing a pasta because they have Gnocchi, ravioli, orecchiette, lasagne, tagliatelle, parpadelle and pici!!

We sat at the bar where we got a view of all the pasta being made and the cooking at the far end.
I seem to recognize one of the Chefs from Pirata.

Fresh hand rolled pici which looked like fat spaghetti being made:

Ravioli being prepared:

Parma ham sliced to order:

Began with bread, olive oil and balsamic vinegar while we were waiting.

Started with the burrata cheese which was creamy, soft and supple:

Next was the Chefs selection which was served on a board comprising of parma ham, salami, taleggio and parmesan.
You can evidently see the difference of freshly sliced parma ham because it is moist and radiant in colour.

Moving on the the warm starters, we had the meatballs which were made of pork, beef with tomato sauce.
They were big and tasty.
Now to the stars of the show, we had lasagne, ravioli, gnocchi and orecchiette
The gnocchi was one of the best I have had because the texture is not stodgy and there are bits of potato in it.
The ravioli was also exciting, there were two choices for ravioli so I chose the one with truffle because it was filled with delicious asparagus and shallots.
The filling was silky smooth complemented by the fragrant truffle.

My friend had the lasagne which was very hearty and meaty.
Last but not least was the nduja orecchiette which had a spicy touch to it while the orecchiette pasta pieces were al dente.

Despite being quite full we had the tiramisu which was a perfect end to the dinner.
