February 7th, 2015. Rosso. It’s been a while since I was at Rosso. Last time I was here with my buddies, celebrating my best friend’s winning a competition. And I was here, again. Met their Italian chef, Chef Paolo Gionfriddo. Always nice to meet a friendly and low profile chef like him. Btw, you can see my last review about Rosso, just click HERE.

Antipasti buffet, selected main course and dessert, chilled juices, coffee, or tea.
For the buffet, I only tried my friend’s salad. But I drank a lot of their chilled juices. Hahaha. So refreshing. 🙂
We understand that food is best when its fresh, plentiful and eaten in the company of those we love. Therefore, every Saturday, Rosso presents an Italian family feast that includes an antipasti buffet, various pizzas, pastas and desserts and unlimited juices.
Pizza of the day
Pizza selections of Margherita – Seafood – Bresaola.
I had no complaints at all of the pizza selections. Each one of them had their uniqueness. But I love the margherita. Mozarella cheese became the star. Definitely a nice pizza to spend your lovely time with lovely ones. And, it was huge portion!
Homemade tagliatelle with seafood and cherry tomatoes.
It was my favourite for pasta that day. This Seafood Tagliatelle was very unique with lovely flavours from the creamy seafood sauce. Rosso served a very generous portion.
Spaghetti with beef Bolognese sauce and parmesan cheese.
Tasted delicious, but could’t distract me from the tagliatelle. Of course, served with huge portion because it was for family 🙂 Only the minced beef could make me move my utensils from the tagliatelle hahaha.. Yeah, I love minced beef. Everytime my mom made spaghetti bolognese, I always remind her about the minced beef. “Gimme huge portion of minced beef, Mom!!” LOL. I loved minced beef. 🙂
Penne alla Norma
Penne Norma with eggplant and Buffalo ricotta cheese.
Penne was not my favourite pasta. Maybe because of the texture. Hihihi. I have no idea. Just not my type of pasta. But I love how they served this one with eggplant. Eggplant was my favourite. And I prefer they gave more ricotta cheese. Yup, I love cheese, too. 😀
Cannoli Filled with Buffalo ricotta cheese and candied orange.
The cannoli was very cute. But for me, cannoli was my least favourite. Maybe because it’s not as soft as cake or cookie. But, it tasted delicious and also very crispy.
Coffee sponge and Mascarpone cheese.
Best tiramisu ever!!! The sponge was very soft and moist. It’s like I ate a coffee in a cloud form. *yeah right, you never ate cloud, yen. never!*
Panna cotta with vanilla cream and raspberry sauce.
Love the panna cotta. Maybe because it was sweet. Yeah, I love sweet treats with a moist texture. 🙂
Profiterol stuffed with chocolate mousse and crispy almond.
Nice one. It’s a French dessert choux pastry ball filled with chocolate mousse and crispy almond. Such a delicate dessert. Love it!!!
