Italian restaurants aren't much of a novelty in Singapore nowadays. The days of one of two good ones and a few mediocre trats are now fortunately over - so when your earnest reporter was invited to a new one he was not overwhelmed with excitement.

That was until he cam across the paragraph in the presser about them making mozzarella and burrata on site. 'They have a mini cheese making factory on site,' thought your intrepid reviewer. Better check that out.

For the cheeses, they import the quick frozen curd from Salerno, Italy. There is a whole process of cooking and cooling the cheese, shaping it into balls and braids, cooling it some more and then serving. You can watch from the street as there is a glass wall onto Telok Ayer Street (the Tanjong Pagar end).

It is worth noting that they are one of the largest cheese wholesalers in Italy - says something about the quality frankly.

All ingredients are imported from Campania and Umbra in Italy - making the food all rather excellent: we were served a wide tasting menu - most of which was fresh and rewarding.

Starters included a Tris Di Bufala - a Burrata, a Mozzarella & Special Burrata and Schiacciata Bread & Mixed Salad. Crostini E Fungi - with Stracciatella, formidable mushrooms and Truffles. Verdure Grigliate - with zucchini, tomatoes, artichoke and aubergines.

An epic mortadella schiacciata sandwich - with mortadella and stracciatella (an Italian soup containing eggs and cheese) & truffle. Salmone Scozzese E Zucchine Pinse (Buffalo Mozzarella, Smoked Salmon, Zucchini) - you guessed it - buffalo mozzarella with smoked salmon and zucchini. Campano Burger - black angus burger, more mozzarella, fresh tomatoes and onion (stick with the Italian favourites frankly.) Bigoli Pasta - fresh homemade tomato sauce and basil, with more Italian egg and cheese soup (stracciatella)

Dessert was epic, as to be expected by this point - Tiramisu with mascarpone and a Tortino Al Cioccolato (Italian Chocolate Lava Cake)

There is a deli where all sorts of yummy product can be bought - including the eponymous cheeses.

I will be dropping in anytime I'm in the area...

THE MAST' of Mozzarella & Co is at 182 Cecil Street, #01-05/08 Frasers Tower, Singapore 069547. Open for breakfast.
