Note: La Villa has closed and it is currently looking for a new location.
Everytime I eat at La Villa, I wonder why I don’t come here more often. Housed within the old school premises of River Valley Primary School, La Villa by the Senso Group is a charming Italian restaurant that not only has a nice interior, but also a beautiful al fresco dining area facing the garden.

Located directly opposite Liang Court in The Foothills, The Fabulous Baker Boy is a cosy and homely space where you can go for an intimate gathering with friends or a quiet dinner with your partner. The prices here are reasonable. You can get a Beef Pastrami Sandwich for $10, while main course such as pies and pastas are below $20. Plus, they have very good home-style cakes.
