We had dinner at Galbiati Gourmet Deli located @The Rail Mall. This is really a nice, cosy Italian restaurant in a quiet area on Upper Bukit Timah Road. It has an outdoor dining area which is only available on weekends. This area is relatively quiet on weekdays, but weekends can be quite crowded during dinner time with the attractive free parking at The Rail Mall.
Everything in Galbiati Gourmet Deli is homemade. Yes this is what the deli stands by and we must you can really feel the difference in taste and quality just by the homemade breads (freshly baked ciabatta, focaccia and other exotic Italian variants. Eg. ciabatta with tomato)
We had these 2 main dishes: squid ink crabmeat pasta and stuffed chicken with mushrooms. The squid ink pasta tastes succulent and is an excellent match with the crabmeat gravy. A positive experience compared to the expensive squid ink pasta we had at a Spanish restaurant which was just too dry for me.
Bly had stuffed chicken with mushrooms that comes with the juicy and crunchy broccolis. It’s funny but I was really impressed by the crunchiness of the broccolis. The stuffed chicken is soft and easy on the palate, reminds me of the stuffed turkey that’s available during Christmas period.
Overall, this is a place we like and will definitely return for more visits. You will get the warm feeling of being in an authentic Italian restaurant when you dine here. Excellent food and service for a decent price. Try it!
