Yet another delicious meal at Issimo. We can't help but to go back repeatedly!

Home-made orecchiette with fresh tuna, capers, black olives and anchovies (RMB128). I wish I can make pasta like this at home. The anchovy sauce was a great compliment to the firm pasta. Loved it.
Cream of mushroom soup with truffle favour (RMB78). Very rich and creamy, it was the one of the nicest mushroom soup we tried.
Gnocchi with traditional Bolognese sauce (RMB108). Tasty chunky meat sauce. Couldn't ask for more.
Spaghetti tossed with fresh clams, cherry tomatoes and rocket (RMB118). Nice flavours and not too garlicky.
Thinly sliced grilled Australian veal sirlion with seasonal mushrooms ragu and rosemary potatoes (RMB228). My husband was pretty happy with it.
Grilled Italian pork sausages and New Zealand lamb chops with apple and onion compote (RMB198). My dish was probably the only boring one that night. Everything was just grilled and while the lamb was tender and juicy the sausage was very average. And the onion and apple compote did not leave an impression.
Hot chocolate amaretto, coffee meringue and coconut ice cream (RMB65). Loved everything especially the coffee meringue.
Cheese platter with truffle honey and walnuts (RMB158).
