This week, Singapore’s Guccio Ristorante is in the hot seat.
Italian dining at its finest
Chances are, you’ve heard of Chef Marco Guccio. Founder of Zafferano and Garibaldi, two of Singapore’s most revered Italian restaurants, he’s also the brains behind Guccio Ristorante. As the newest of Guccio’s ventures, this highly-anticipated fine dining establishment is a welcome addition to bustling Chinatown.
Chef Guccio’s philosophy is one we can certainly get behind – instead of going for complicated combinations using many elements, he prefers to keep it simple. Guccio usually selects one ingredient to become the star of the show, then creates a cast of supporting actors to elevate its flavours to new heights. The components may seem basic, but the taste is nothing but.
Take for example the polipo, a Sardinian octopus that is poached and pan-seared to perfection, then served with a medley of seasonal vegetables and a simple lemon dressing known as salmoriglio. The octopus undoubtedly plays the lead role in this dish, while the other ingredients work in unison to bring the flavours to the surface.
Presentation, in addition to flavour, is of the utmost importance at Guccio Ristorante. Chef Guccio and his team put together masterpieces that would impress art critics and gourmands alike. Meticulously plated with precision and a keen attention to detail, Guccio Ristorante settles for nothing less than perfection.
Seasonal and beautiful
Our recommendation? Opt for Guccio Ristorante’s seasonal degustation menu and journey through four, five or six courses that showcase its best dishes. Paired alongside carefully curated wines that have been matched to each dish, you’ll be in for an unforgettable dining experience.
Treat yourself to an unforgettable dining experience at Guccio Ristorante on Gemmill Lane, a stone’s throw from Club Street.
