One of my ways to chase the Monday’s blues was food indulgence after a pamper session at OD Wellness which was round the corner. A good friend of mine recommended Etna and we decided to try it. The name of the restaurant derives from Mount Etna, which is an active volcano on the east coast of Sicily, Italy.
Farinata di Ceci – Chickpea bread, rocket and cooked ham. Simple starter.
 Schiacciata al Tartufo e Mascarpone – Pizza crust filled with truffle and Mascarpone cheese. I absolutely love the Mascarpone cheese. This looks really plain but taste great! Looks can be deceiving.
 Parmigiana di Melanzane ($18) – Baked eggplants parmigiana layered with fresh basil and mozzarella cheese. The eggplant is soft and has a hint of sweetness from the tomato sauce.
 Linguine al Granchio ($27) – Linguine with crabmeat and soft shell crab in lobster bisque. The taste of crab might be rather overwhelming for the not crab lover.
Pizza Etna ($26) – Mozzarella cheese, porcini mushrooms, Parma ham, cream cheese and pistachio. This can easily feed 3-4 people comfortably but in Italy, it is for 1 person. Wood fire pizza always taste different too! The crust was evenly baked and perfect!
   Trilogy of dessert
(Starting top left in clockwise direction)

Tiramisu al Pistachio di Bronte ($14) – Classic Tiramisu with authentic pistachio paste (from Bronte, Sicily). This is one of restaurant’s signature. Must try!

Delizia al Cioccolato ($14) – Traditional Walnut liqueur scented molten chocolate lava cake, Vanilla ice‐cream. The molten chocolate oozed out as we cut open. Yum!

Baba’ – classic Neapolitan dessert with custard scented in Mandarin liquor.
