Talk about rustic Italian dining; an interior with rough finishing that is instilled with the typical Italian villa ambiance. Stone pillars standing majestically surrounding the colourful mural near the ceiling was very nice to look at while enjoying the spread. Neat bar counters and not to mention the posh seats layout as well, with an enchanted firewood pizza oven. And we just love their hand painted ceramic tabletops!
It’s the intimate dining place: Villa Danieli
Following our previous visit (our review HERE), the gastronomic experience left us a very memorable aftertaste.
Thanks to Villa Danieli, we were very delighted to check out their menu revamp by the well-known Italian Chef Alessandro Graziosi. Chef Alessandro Graziosi’s menu is a reflection of what true Italian recipes are all about; beautified by handmade pasta, use of natural ingredients like the aromatic herbs as well as some lip smacking main dishes.
Complimentary Fresh Charcoal Breads
Here’s a few combination of new dishes that Chef Alessandro has paired up. The dishes are available in their a la carte menu
