LaBrezza is a Trattoria-style Italian restaurant at The St. Regis Singapore. Located on the second floor overlooking the pool, LaBrezza has an open al-fresco dining concept, with some air-con blasting in the main dining area.
As compared to St. Regis’ French Restaurant, Brasserie Les Saveurs, LaBrezza is definitely more laid-back and family-oriented. This would be perfect place to be at for a Sunday brunch, but I was here for dinner.
Bread Basket with dipping sauces – Bread was served warm and nice. However, I was not given any introduction to the dips served and I was left clueless throughout my exploration of them. Apart from the olive oil and the seemingly tomato paste, I couldn’t tell what the other two dips were. Service here was definitely a let-down, as I would expect the staff to have been trained to provide quality service, expected of a 6-Star hotel.
Tonno su Insalatina all’Aceto Balsamico, Yellow fin tuna carpaccio, petit green salad, with aged balsamic vinegar ($19) – This was a great starter to share as the portion was very generous! I loved how the fish was very thinly-sliced, which complemented the greens really well.
Tagliolini alle Vongole Veraci, Tagliolini, veraci clams, garlic, sweet cherry tomato, basil ($25) – Personally, I felt that this was likened to a Chinese-style interpretation of Vongole Pasta. The noodles tasted like Chinese ee-mian. The saving grace of this dish were the clams which were big, juicy and sweet.
Filetto di Wagyu con Patate Rosmarino, Grilled filet of Wagyu beef with roasted rosemary, potatoes, pepper corn sauce ($54) – This slab of meat was definitely worth the price. However, I wished that the meat was not as well-marinated so as to taste the essence of the beef. I’m not a fan of their grilled-vegetable side though.
Overall, LaBrezza presented several hits and misses. However, I am highly enticed by its Sunday brunch menu – which I have a feeling they will fare better in.
