The restaurant’s Executive Chef, Simone Depalmas, proudly showcases a comprehensive menu that introduces a varied repertoire of hearty Italian fare that promises to do justice to the iconic heritage mansion. Chef Depalmas hails from Sardinia, Italy and is a veteran with 20 years of culinary experience who believes in making all his sauces from scratch and creating dishes that are inventive but do not forgo the natural flavours of authentic Italian cuisine. Chef Depalmas’ Sardinian touch to his dishes which uses specially imported produce from his home province give diners a refined, gourmet experience reminiscent of Italy.
The Italian-inspired culinary journey starts with Fresh Octopus Carpaccio and Pan Seared Hokkaido Scallops, two of the ten antipasti available for diners to choose from. The pasta selection features the signature Homemade Squid Ink Tagliatelle, made daily with fresh squid ink and loaded with clams, prawns, squid and scallops in a robust tomato sauce.
A dish that involves Chef Depalmas himself to serve diners directly is the Oven Baked Sea Bass in Salt. Encased in salt, the fish is rolled out guéridon style, flambéed tableside before the salt is cracked open and the fish skilfully deboned.
Diners will have to make sure they leave some room for the desserts at Alkaff Mansion Ristorante. Look out for the Fresh Mint Vanilla Panna Cotta, a modern twist on the famous Italian dessert or the Alkaff Mansion Tiramisu that will please the traditionalists.
