Newly Renovated Trapizza Wows With Delicious Italian Menu!
Situated on the pristine white beach of Siloso Beach is casual Italian restaurant, Trapizza, which is run and managed by Shangri-La’s Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa. Trapizza recently underwent a six-month renovation and reopened on 10 May 2018 under the direction of Chef Alessandro Delle Cave. Chef Alessandro hails from Turin, Italy, and has honed his culinary skills at Italian restaurants in Italy, Sydney and Singapore. Our team visited the newly refurbished Trapizza and experienced the great atmosphere and bold Italian menu!
Diners can enjoy the cooling sea breeze and a panoramic view of Siloso Beach from the main dining area under a canopy, outdoor seating on the sand or from the bar counter in the 214-seat dining outlet. The newly introduced Grab n’ Go ready-to-go items such as popsicles, beverages, desserts, salads and panini for guests who prefer a quick bite on the go. Building on its family-friendly dining philosophy, children can have a splashing good time at the new water play area, or unleash their creativity at the colouring corner and dedicated play zone. With beautiful cacti landscaping, modern furnishings, and a great view of the picturesque sea, Trapizza promises a great time for everyone.
Trapizza specialises in thin-crusted, wood-fired pizzas and hearty burgers. The Family Sharing 16-inch pizza ($39) is completely customisable with any three flavours of your choice. It is perfect for a party of 4 guests! The pizza is baked in a wood stone oven, and is continuously turned to ensure even baking.
For our Family Sharing 16-inch Pizza, we picked the flavours of Pizza Inferno, Pizza Porcini and Pizza Siciliana. My favourite has got to be the Porcini flavour as the balance between the savouriness of the traditional Sicilian Pork Sausages and sweetness of the onions was just exceptional! Pizza flavours aside, Trapizza does a commendable job in nailing the thin crust in its wood-fired pizzas. The crust is unbelievably crispy, it shatters with every bite!
Apart from the Trapizza’s classics, Chef Alessandro who specialises in pastas and risottos also introduced exciting new additions to the menu. Chef Alessandro uses premium ingredients imported from Italy to create Northern Italian dishes such as Lamb Ravioli ($24). This hearty dish is made with minced lamb wrapped in silky smooth sheets of handmade pasta, then simmered in a delicious concoction of Trapizza’se house-made lamb stock, sage butter, fava beans and tangy sun-dried tomatoes, and finished with a flourish of almond flakes and Pecorino cheese shavings. A truly satisfying creation that highlights the robust flavours of lamb and chef’s deft play of flavours.
Trapizza’s signature pasta, Trapizza Linguine ($26), came highly recommended and was done with finesse. Al dente linguine pasta is immersed in a delightful lobster bisque with white wine saffron cream, and adorned with sauteed crab meat, prawns and mussels. You can almost taste the freshness of the ocean, and the natural sweetness of the seafood was captivating!
Another crowd favourite is the Family Sharing Wagyu Beef Burger ($46). The burger contains 800 grams of pure Wagyu beef carefully sizzled over the hot grill for twenty minutes, topped with bacon, caramelised onion rings, tomatoes and lettuce, and served with potato wedges. The juicy Wagyu beef bore that amazing charred fragrance that beef lovers will definitely appreciate. A hearty but sinful burger, indulgence does not get any better than this!
Trapizza has an interesting range of cocktails and milkshakes that will tickle your fancy! Ever heard of pizza cocktails? The signature Pepperoni Pizzatini ($18) is an interesting concoction which incorporates savoury pizza flavours in an alcoholic drink! Be warned though: this unique drink has quite a salty aftertaste! The Bloody Mary with Skewers ($28) are for guests who crave a snack while sipping on cocktails. Think a long skewer with tasty grilled morsels and crispy wings accompanying a huge jug of Bloody Mary!
Cake On A Shake ($18), a sugar-rush inducing milkshake, will thrill those with a sweet tooth. The Black Forest Cake sees a decadent black forest cake on top of a velvety chocolate milkshake. The slice of blackberry filled cake complemented the richness of the chocolate milkshake. Surprisingly, the milkshake was not cloyingly sweet. My personal favourite!
With sumptuous Italian food in an idyllic setting, Trapizza is the perfect weekend getaway you need to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. So, what are you waiting for? Head over to Trapizza today!
