Chef Lino Sauro of famed Italian restaurant Gattopardo has brought a new concept serving a wide variety of traditional Italian street favorites or Stuzzichini, Italian sandwiches and other Italian dishes to Singapore. Morsi & Sorsi, which translates to ‘Sips and Bites’, is a nice breath of fresh air with a simple yet unique style of Italian dining.

Highlight of the menu is the Stuzzichini or traditional Italian street favorites with cold and hot options which includes Don Bocarte Anchovies ($6 each) served on thin toasted Frittata bread slice and Fish in Carpione ($12) that is slightly cooked sweet and sour flavoured snapper served in brine and onions. The hot Stuzzichini dishes to try is Panelle ($7) of deep-fried chick peas fritters served with lemon. Reminiscent of Chef Lino’s childhood favourite, Pladina ($13) is unleavened Italian bread wrapped tantalizingly with parma ham, rucola, tomato and mozarella cheese. Other interesting hot tapas to try are Grilled Sicilian Octopus ($15) and Arancini ($6) of Sicilian deep-fried rice balls.
For a more hearty meal, go for the Homemade Beef Lasagne ($13) and Vegetarian Homemade Baked Lasagne ($9). A rich combination of flavours of mozzarella and Parmesan cheese combined with beef or eggplant. Not into Lasagne, try the Chef’s Pasta of the Day ($12). Alternatively, delight in a light cold dish of veal slices served in a special cream mayonnaise sauce and picked shallots, Vitello Tonnato ($14) or Cured Fish Carpaccio ($18) with Tuna and Smoked Salmon. Share a Platter ($23) served with bread, there are four choices to choose from. Selection of Italian cold cuts, Parma Smoked Salmon, Calamari with various cheese and grilled vegetables like baby spinach and cherry tomato.
This new Italian eatery also serves up a wide selection of Italian sandwiches that is good to take on the go.
