I didn't expect the place to be fully packed, what with it being a Monday. But to my surprise, it was a full house tonight and we could only have the table till 8pm since I didn't make any reservation in advance.
As usual, complimentary bread was served. It looked to be the normal French baguette.
As its name suggests, pasta and other traditional Italian fare is Pasta Brava's specialty. My Manicotti Ripieni di Zucca ($21++) was excellent. Perfectly al dente and filled with pumpkin, the moon shaped ravioli in red capsicum sauce was bursting with sweetness in every bite.
The Linguine Ai Frutti di Mare ($26++) looked real appetising. Flat spaghetti was tossed with a generous amount of prawns, clams, scallops, squid, crayfish, garlic and tomato sauce.
The scallops and prawns of the Stracci Ai Gamberie Capesante ($21++) were very fresh and went well with green peppercorn, white wine and saffron cream sauce.
Another homemade pasta was the Agnolotti Farcitti al Salmone ($21++). This was a savory version of the moon shaped ravioli as it's filled with salmon and served with tomato and cream sauce. I thought this was pretty good as well with the rather strong taste of salmon.
