Casa Pietrasanta23

Casa Pietrasanta at One North is a new affordable Italian private dining concept by Ristorante Pietrasanta. The intimate 20-seater space, centred around an open kitchen, offers degustation menus under $75.

We have the Three Course Dinner Degustation Menu ($64.90 per guest), comprising an appetiser, a main course and a dessert. The dinner started with complimentary bread and breadstick paired with olive oil. Following that is a delightful cod fish croquette, deep-fried and paired with a delicious tomato sauce.

Stracciatella 3.5/5

There are six options for Appetiser. I decided to go for the Stracciatella, which requires an additional top-up of $5. The plate consists of burrata cream, 18-month parma ham, rocket pesto and semi-dried tomatoes with homemade balsamic glaze. It is a classic pairing that won't go wrong.

Seabass Carpaccio 4/5

Tortino della Lunigiana 4.2/5

The other appetiser my dining companions chose were Seabass Carpaccio and Tortino della Lunigiana. If you prefer something light and refreshing, go for the Seabass Carpaccio. The thinly sliced seabass was seasoned with pink peppercorn, lemon zest and Tuscan extra virgin olive oil. Another beautiful appetiser is the traditional Tortino della Lunigiana, laid with zucchini and red onion frittata. I love how the red onion's sweetness comes through in the dish.

Duchess Potatoes 4.5/5

Before moving to our mains, we are served with some Duchess Potatoes. I love this way of enjoying mashed potatoes, giving them delectable duo textures, crispy on the exterior and creamy inside.

Risotto Escargot 4.2/5

There are six options for the Mains. I decided to go for the Risotto Escargot for an additional $8. It was a good recommendation from the staff. The rice cooked in a red wine brown sauce was deliciously flavourful. It even comes with three escargots which probably need some effort to remove the flesh from the shell, but all is worth it.

Casa Pietrasanta28
Guanciale di Manzo 4/5

The rest of the group has the Guanciale di Manzo and Linguine Vongole e Bottarga. Meat lovers will enjoy the Beef Cheek cooked to tender, dressed in a spicy green sauce and paired with red and yellow capsicum. An additional $10 top-up is required for the beef cheek.

Linguine Vongole e Bottarga 4.2/5

Ristorante Pietrasanta is known for its pasta, and sure indeed, the Linguine with Clam cooked with grey mullet bottarga in white wine sauce did not disappoint. The addition of fresh tomatoes further brightened the whole enjoyment.

Gianduiotto al Fior di Latte 3.8/5

There are three choices for dessert to wrap up the dinner on a sweet note. Chocolate lovers will enjoy the rich and creamy Milk Chocolate Gianduiotto, topped with Amarena cherries and paired with milk cream sauce to cut the richness.

Casa Pietrasanta37
Sharon's Granita 4/5

The Sharon's Granita comprising lychees granita, prosecco jelly and roselle syrup is a light and refreshing dessert that is somewhat addictive. I could not help returning for more as it has a nostalgic taste that grows on me.

Casa Pietrasanta35
Tortino alle Mele e Vaniglia 4.2/5

The crowd favourite was the Tortino alle Mele e Vaniglia. A delicious green apple crumble tart topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Two menus entice for lunch and dinner at Casa Pietrasanta. Lunch is priced at $39.90 (3-Course) and $59.90 (4-Course), while Dinner is priced at $64.90 (3-Course) and $74.90 (4-Course). 

Note: This is an invited tasting.
