Hadn't come here for a long time and thought maybe it was time to eat their great pizzas again!Walked in for lunch on a weekday. It was not so full although reservation was no longer allowed for same day booking.Ordered two lunch sets to share. Price seemed to have inflated quite a bit from our last visit. Now for 2 courses you need to pay $308+10% with $80+10% top-up for a dessert/cheese.However, our major target was their very delicious pizza!Bread basketIt was very bad. All the bread was so cold with hard crust....I remembered the bread was better last time...Pesto Pizza (Mozzarella, pesto sauce, semi-dried cherry tomato, sun-dried tomato and shaved parmesan cheese)We ate this flavour last time and encored again. We ate immediately after serving. The pizza had super thin and crispy crust. There were loads of toppings but not over. Despite the presence of so much cheese, the flavour was great, not too salty at all. The cheese was so ductile while eating. Really quite a good pizza indeed. Highly recommended. And please note the price of $190+10% which was really not too pricey given the quality and location.Then let's talk about the lunch sets. Here you go the appetizers:White Asparagus with Culatello Ham and Orange DressingVery fresh ingredients. The asparagus were ok although they could have been even more tender. They were warm, to my surprise. The Culatello Ham, one of the most prized salumi in Italy, was super fresh and good. The dressing wasn't very orange. Quite a good appetizer after all.Black Rice Salad with Tomato Emulsion and Smoked Stracciatella CheeseInteresting black rice which were not so starchy and a little bit chewy. The tomato emulsion was very refreshing, a bit sour and sweet. The smoked cheese was not so strong. Overall pretty appetizing.Here you go the mains:Homemade Fettuccine with Sausage, Mushroom and Pecorino CheeseThe Fettuccine itself was ok. Quite al dente although I had expected even more al dente texture. The sauce was ok too, quite creamy but not so cheesy! The minced sausages were really bad! Tasteless like frozen pork and so rough. The mushrooms couldn't help. Very Very bad minced sausages which had ruined the whole dish. Even Chinese-style steamed minced pork was better. Pasta wise it was really not so good as those at 8 1/2.Charcoal Grilled Wagyu Flap Steak with Mashed Potato and French BeanThis mains was better! Quite a big portion of Wagyu with 5 slices! Could tell that the quality was high but I found them too rare so it was not so easy to chew. FYI they hadn't asked how well done we would like it to be cooked. I think it could have been more cooked in my humble opinion. The crust was good though. The French beans and the mashed potato were both tasty! We only ordered 1 dessert to share:Vanilla Custard and Black Cherry Tart with Coconut Ice CreamIt was served pretty fast. The coconut ice cream was super rich in coconut. The tart itself was not too crunchy nor warm although it was ok with vanilla custard and little black cherry. It really could have been better with the tart, although it was not bad.Overall food quality was pretty good despite the pretty disappointing sausages for the pasta dish. Service was ok, not particularly good or bad. Environment was ok because the tables were quite close to each other so not much privacy indeed. Lunch sets were quite pricey but pizzas were definitely a great deal! If you come, please don't forget to try their pizzas. continue reading

Eggplant parmesan? Or eggplant lasagna? This is what I was served when I ordered eggplant parmesan at CIAK here in Landmark.As I look up the website, I see that it was awarded a Michelin star for two-three years in a row, a couple of years back.Just a few days ago, I had pesto, so I didn't go for the pasta but the eggplant parmesan again. And I must say I wasn't very impressed.When I think of eggplant parmesan, I think something a bit breaded, a bit crusty, very chunky tomato sauce-y. This wasn't breaded. It wasn't crusty. Wasn't very sauce-y but not dry.I think eggplant lasagna might be a better way to describe this, to avoid disappointment on not getting the eggplant parmesan. It was very neatly presented, neatly portioned to be able to cut out slices.The taste wasn't bad and it tasted better at home later that evening, as I took my leftovers to go.The house breads were good. I was too chatty to get a picture of my Long Island Iced Tea.The space was quite big and the menu, overall extensive. I may stop here for another bite someday. Pesto something, I'd guess.More photos and details on the blog - thevegetarianvoyager continue reading

第一次黎呢間餐廳,餐廳地方好大,坐得好舒服,好岩一大班人去傾計飲酒,服務員個個態度都好好,食物都好多選擇。最好味係佢地既steak,好肥美,juicy,配埋啲酒一流,呢度自己帶酒去飲仲免開瓶費,好抵玩!甜品都係亮點,賣相吸引,味道好特別,有意大利風味! continue reading

急著看電影,所以快速來Ciak隨便吃一點。Japanese bluefin tuna tartare. Fresh orange and confit tomato. 這道tuna tartare感覺比較普通,沒有那麼juicy,味道不夠足。Baby octopus, stew of Italian octopus, potato, tomato, garlic bread. 土豆番茄燉小章魚,意外的好吃,小章魚很嫩,味道厚重但是一點也不咸,搭配蒜蓉麵包,沾著湯汁吃,超級完美! Tagliatelle,Wagyu beef Bolognese in traditional style. 這道非常喜歡,牛肉醬味道濃郁,醬料的分量恰到好處,面的軟硬也剛剛好。Fettuccine,Sicilian red prawn, zucchini, and Sardinian Bottarga. 也很好吃,但是感覺味道沒有beef bolognese那麼濃郁。不知道為什麼,對Ciak的感覺時好時壞,不像Landmark cafe,隨便吃吃都很安全。而且Ciak的分量算小,總覺得性價比普通。 continue reading

老公愛吃這家的Pizza,所以拉著我來試。見到他家有米其林1星,心想應該不會差。結果一試之下非常之失望!他家的Cabonara真的是到了很難吃的地步,黃色的sauce一端上來就心裡一緊,吃到嘴裡更是失望至極:首先,汁太多把麵都泡軟了,不似正宗義大利pasta做法;其次,味道怪異,也不是經典的cabonara;最後,培根用的是袋包裝的已經炸過的醃製培根,一點不新鮮。服務也不怎樣,很多菜都不標價,要單獨問;點餐要問過三個waitress才搞得清楚菜品,因為多數是菲律賓服務生態度很隨意。雖然沒試過他家的pizza,但我肯定不會再來了。米其林一星的價格,吃的是平價超市貨的質量,還不如自己回家買麵和醬,20分鐘搞定! continue reading
