Dining At La Cantina in Venezia

If you're looking for a an idyllic hideaway, off-the-city dining experience, check out the chic La Cantina in Venezia Italian restaurant situated at the Changi Village Hotel. Located at the hotel’s top floor, be greeted by the outdoor swimming pool & deck chairs amidst the lush tropical greenery of laid back Changi Village. Upon entering the restaurant, the charming décor & simple floor-to-ceiling glass panels transport you into a gracious haven of Venetian living. A must try is the romantic balcony dining that overlooks our island’s Eastern shoreline & the Changi’s golf course, which is a perfect venue for sunset cocktails & candle-lit dinners.
I’m a Carpaccio fan & I love La Cantina’s Beef Carpaccio @ S$17.20, with lots of shaved Parmesan cheese.
The Calamari (S$16.50) here is a no-no for me as I prefer the crispy version. It’s really very individual. My Japanese friend on the other hand, enjoyed the Calamari as it’s softer & in big chunks. If you like thin pizzas, you may wanna consider dining at La Cantina. Their Fruitti Di Mare (pomodoro, mozzarella, prawn, scallop, squid & shell-fish) is really nice & crispy.

One of the signature dishes is the Linguine Al Granchio (Crabmeat Linguine) @ S$26.90. I must agree it’s done quite well, which is also my favourite in this restaurant. However, I made a wrong choice this time & went for their Linguine Al Nero Di Seppia (S$25.90) instead.

Da Paolo has probably raised the standard of Ink Squid Pasta resulting in me having very high expectation of this particular cuisine. I like my pasta to be made from ink squid, in another word, BLACK & not just using the normal pasta, mix with the sauces & serve it to me. The Ink Squid Pasta lacked the “in-depth” factor & the sizes of the squid are too huge, especially for ladies.

Oh, before I sign off this meal, La Cantina’s home-made bread is one of the best in town. It arrives at your table warm & crisp & I love biting into the tiny bits of black olives.

Rating: 4/5
