Perched atop Telok Blangah Hill is an opulent colonial building occupied by Italian Restaurant Alkaff Mansion Ristorante. The bungalow was once a highly sought-after destination amongst the entitled in the 1930s, where it was renowned for the most extravagant socialite parties.
Painstakingly restored to its grandeur in 2011, all present-day visitors are warmly welcomed to experience the glorious splendour of yesteryears while enjoying authentic Italian fare. And on Sundays, Alkaff Mansion Ristorante offers a decadent buffet spread of Italian gourmet alongside unlimited flow of Prosecco, White and Red wines for only S$98++ per adult.
The seemingly hefty price tag is actually an amazing deal, especially when compared to the average rates in Singapore’s fine dining industry. Diners get to indulge in unlimited servings of fresh seafood, fine meats, pastas in a variety of sauces, and refreshing bubbles! You would probably have to pay twice more when ordering such amounts in other fancy establishments.
So, what’s not to love about Alkaff Mansion Ristorante’s Sunday Prosecco Brunch?
The two-storey stunning Alkaff Mansion is nestled in lush greenery and its remote location offers unrivalled tranquility. Its serene outdoor area features majestic water fountains and a beautiful gazebo that overlooks Telok Blangah Hill Park.
Drivers will be glad to know that free parking is available at Telok Blangah Hill Park’s Car Park 2. Complimentary valet parking services are also offered after 6.30pm daily.
The romantic Italian restaurant is transformed to a gastronomical extravaganza with its value-for-money free-flow Prosecco Brunch every Sunday from 11.30pm – 3pm. The magnificent Tudor-style dining hall is beyond stunning with its shimmering chandeliers and makes a great Sunday lunch date destination.
Priced reasonably at S$98++ per adult and S$58++ per child, patrons get to enjoy a mouthwatering selection of authentic Italian fare. The variety is so exhaustive that you will find yourselves spoilt rotten for choice. The featured dishes may differ every week, depending on the availability of ingredients.
Executive Chef Simone Depalmas is a native of Sardinia, Italy. With his rich gastronomy experiences, we always trust him to come up with the most delicious Italian fare.
Using only the freshest produce, mostly imported from Italy directly, Chef Simone believes in creating his dishes from scratch, and that includes the sauces! His fiery passion for cooking is evident in his repertoire of hearty culinary inventions that never fail to excite us.
The antipasti menu boasts a mind-blowing array of cold cuts and delectable raw seafood, so go on and pile your plates endlessly! We particularly enjoyed the ultra refreshing Scottish Salmon ‘Carpaccio’ With Caviar Dressing.
Luxuriate further with their other signature seafood items such as Octopus Carpaccio with Yellow Frisee Salad (also Chef Simone’s signature antipasti), Black Olives and Balsamic Reduction and Seasonal Freshly-Shucked Oysters. Oh, if you are lucky to be there on days that they serve the Beef Carpaccio, you totally have to try that!
The other cured meats, namely Cold Cut Veal Loin with Tuna Sauce & Capers and Parma Ham with Rock Melon, are must-try items too. We were unabashedly ashamed of returning for seconds, thirds and more; life of a glutton, right?
The feast also includes a selection of Italian premium cheeses – including the classic burrata – that will perfectly complement your unlimited wines. We have nothing but praises for the cheeses.
The next-door room features live stations of freshly prepared Cheesy Penne Pasta, Oven Baked Beef Sirloin, Roasted Atlantic Cod and more. If you are in need of more carbohydrates to fill your growling tummies, dive straight for the piping hot slices of Pepperoni and Prawn Pizzas. Look carefully and you will notice that each cheesy pizza is decorated with pretty edible flower petals.
The selection of pastas is also on rotation, and there will always be something new to try. No matter what you have a taste for – cream base or fresh tomatoes paste – there will be something to please. Oh, there is a huge cauldron of hot soup that bears a taste of home too!
Complete your decadent meal with the prettiest desserts. The dessert table is filled with an extensive variation of Italian classics and contemporary renditions. From bite-size crème brûlée and walnut brownies to deconstructed tiramisu, the abundance of sweet treats still surprise even the most regular customers. And with authentic Italian desserts being rather scarce in Singapore, we know we can always count on Alkaff Mansion Ristorante when we need some “Italiano Desserto” fix.
The seating capacity of Alkaff Mansion Ristorante’s dining hall for Sundy Prosecco Brunch is capped at 180 pax, but you will be surprised how well received this weekly event is with the expatriate community. Reservations are definitely recommended, even if it is just a table for two. Do note that credit card details will be required for group bookings of 8 or more guests.
Alkaff Mansion Ristorante is an extremely popular events venue, especially for solemnizations and wedding ceremonies. So do call in advance just to ensure that the restaurant is not fully booked for private receptions before you drop by. Prices are also subjected to change on selected festive public holidays.
