7. Curate Cucina Pisana’s Opening
There’s a new resto in town! Curate Cucina Pisana has opened its doors on 1 October 2021 at level 1 of The Forum at Resorts World Sentosa. Led by Pisan native Chef de Cuisine Davide Bizzarri, the restaurant presents an authentic dining journey through Pisa, a province in the heart of Tuscany that is known for its Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italian renaissance art and famous vineyards.
Paying homage to Italian culinary traditions, Curate Cucina Pisana brings to table freshly hand-kneaded artisanal pasta made from the best Italian Durum wheat Semolina. You can also enjoy traditional pasta from the Martelli, a family-run pasta business located in Lari, a small medieval village near Pisa, with a heritage of more than 95 years. All work processes in the Martelli’s pasta factory are marked by slow techniques at low temperatures where this method enhances the flavour of the grain and the absorption of the sauce, making the dough not just tasty but also more easily digestible.
