Our very knowledgeable driver brought us to Locanda Dei Cantonieri, a quaint B&B ten minutes away from The Mall outlet for our lunch.
As soon as I saw the orange cake in the display I couldn’t wait til dessert.
That’s our nice and friendly driver on the right. He only spoke Mandarin and it was a good thing Rochelle and Sharon spoke it quite well since I had no contribution at all.
I was so surprised to see so much shaved white truffles on Sharon’s carbonara and it only cost €6. This was the first time for me to try real truffles and I was disappointed that it wasn’t as good as I dreamt it would be. It didn’t taste like how it smelled. The pasta was quite dry and bland too. Sha had to douse it with lots of grated cheese to be able to eat it.
carbonara al tartufo €6
The driver has eaten here numerous times and he chose the lasagna so I did too. It was actually quite good. The pasta was al dente and the cheese to meat ratio was just right. Not too wet or dry.
lasagna al ragu €6
If you’re shopping at The Mall, dining at Locanda Dei Cantonieri is not a bad option. Maybe we should have tried some of their second (meat) instead of just the primi (pasta).
