Review

Setting

Medici’s basement setting has an almost gothic ambience befitting discreet dinner dates, but the mood is lightened by some atypical features, including promenading opera singers and head-turning tableside displays by affable head chef Nicolino Lalla. His modern Italian cuisine is never less than striking. Service, though, can be a little slip-shod at times.

Rating : 16/20

Food

Dishes worth trying include scallop three ways antipasti, each tender piece served on dollops of mashed broad bean, pumpkin and beetroot, with expressionistic flicks of balsamic dressing. Another is angus beef tenderloin topped with pan-fried foie gras and black truffle. Alongside the rousing opera acapellas each night, the attention of diners is intermittently drawn to the sight of the head chef setting a 20kg parmesan wheel on fire. As the cognac burns, he tosses ribbon pasta through the flames and pit of melting cheese. Enriched with a white truffle and porcini mushroom sauce, this alfredo-style dish lives up to the drama. For more tableside pyrotechnics, end with florence dome. A signature flaming dessert of burnt dark chocolate, nuts and fruit served on a marble tile, it is perfect for sharing.

Rating : 34/40

Wine

A strong wine list leaning towards classic Italians, including some by the glass, is balanced by beers and extravagant cocktails.
