Chancing upon Latteria was an act of fate. The initial purpose of travelling to Duxton Road was to try the famous lobster roll at Pince and Pints. But lo and behold, the minimum waiting time was at least an hour. With rumbling tummies, we were forced to seek other dining options instead. Every cloud does have a silver lining. Walking around Duxton Hill aimlessly, we found ourselves at the beautiful patio of Latteria.
Linguine Crab & Mascarpone: This dish promises to razzle and dazzle you with its fascinating combination of complementary flavours. Creamy and tangy, the sauce coats the smooth strands of linguine nicely and evenly. Garnished generously with crabmeat, this dish possesses a similar taste profile to Ricciotti’s Linguine Al Granchio.
Latteria Mac & Cheese: This dish has always been my weakness. Even if I know that with diminishing returns, I will not last more than 8 spoonfuls, I followed my heart and my gut to order this dish. Housed in a little pumpkin, this dish is irresistible and a visual feast. The baked cheese crust at the top provides a hearty and savoury boost to its taste profile. Mac & Cheese is indeed comfort for the tummy.
Dont brush off Latteria off as just another trattoria(Italian restaurant). The interior has an ageless and warm ambience while their service is exemplary. Food wise, I have said it all. We are definitely going back for seconds and more.
