Review

Alba 1836 serves contemporary Italian fare in an elegant setting comprising two dining areas— a private room and an al fresco area. The space is decorated with traditional stone walls reminiscent of those in Italian villages, and the entrance lined with a well-stocked wine cellar immediately impresses. Grilled pecorino cheese, granular and slightly briny, is nicely offset by drizzles of chestnut honey, accompanied by soft, sweet, fresh figs for an appetising starter. The chef embraces seasonality through dishes such as homemade tagliolini in butter sauce, which rises in stature with the addition of black truffles, resulting in a rich, fragrant, and earthy dish. Tender Milanese-style beef tenderloin reclines enticingly on a bed of potato purée, with a small pillow of tart yet sweet cherry tomato confit, bursting with flavour. The owner provides sage wine advice as he and his staff interact with diners, with Italian wines prominent on the list. Do ask him for recommendations on which tipples to pair with your dishes, and he may just suprise you with obscure but excellent labels to elevate your meal.
