I have fond memories of dining at Pontini at Grand Copthorne Waterfront so I was frankly a little disappointed to learn that Pontini is no longer in existence. Instead, Grissini, a slightly more casual Italian restaurant has sprung up in its place.
We had stayed two nights at the hotel on a kids-free staycation and decided to end our stay with a light lunch. And Grissini was conveniently located on the ground floor of the hotel.
It’s $19 two-course weekday set lunch sounds simple but packs a punch.
I chose the heirloom tomato salad, which had a lovely sweet balsamic dressing that complemented the tomatoes perfectly.
And followed it with the penne arrabbiatta which surprised me with its spiciness. I’m not the kind of person who adds chili to my food but I do enjoy some spicy foods and this was just right for me.
You can add on dessert for $6 but we had a latte earlier and were full after the main course.
