InITALY Bar Ristorante, Mario Caramella's New Venture in Singapore

GVCI President, former Bali Sanur Hyatt Hotel (Indonesia) Executive Chef and now Chef Patron of the brand new In Italy, Mario Caramella opens his new place along Craig Road in Singapore. A smart, mediterranean restaurant, conceived around authentic Italian cuisine, it can seat 40 guests inside and 20 in the terrace.

Some of the dishes to be found in the menu are: Fritto Misto (crispy calamari, prawns, soft shell crab, honey mustard and balsamic dip), Acqua Pazza (red garoupa with tomatoes, capers, green olives, mussels and clams), Stufato di Manzo (stewed beef cheek with porcini mushrooms and polenta) and, as Rosario Scarpato called it "the renaissance of Bollito Misto" (boiled beef, veal, pork, chicken, veal tongue and vegetables with a selection of dips).

In bocca al lupo!
