What to order at Mauro Colagreco’s new Italian restaurant Fiamma

·3-min read

From avant garde food to burgers, Mauro Colagreco has dabbled in a wide range of cuisines. Now he can add Italian to the list with the debut of Fiamma.

Opened for dining now, the restaurant at Capella Singapore hotel serves dishes that reflect the acclaimed chef’s experience of growing up in an Italian household.

Named after the Italian word for flame, Fiamma does not focus on food from a particular region, but there is a strong Mediterranean influence. Some dishes are inspired by his grandparents, and pizzas that recall his stay in Naples. Grilled items stem from family barbecues, and desserts dredge up memories of sharing them with his sons.

“Fiamma is very emotional for me,” said Colagreco. “It talks about my Italian roots and what I experience in my childhood: food made with love.”

The earth-toned space is similarly cozy. Diners can opt to eat in the Living Room, which has enveloping couches and rope-backed chairs, or the Pizza Chamber facing a wood-fired electric oven. A private dining room and an outdoor terrace, which faces Capella’s swimming pool, are also available.

Fiamma is Colagreco’s most recent concept in Singapore after a pop-up at Mandala Club of his three-star Mirazur restaurant, and the now-shuttered Carne burger joint on Amoy Street. He has also worked with Capella Bangkok to open Côte, which received a Michelin star. The Italian-Argentine native was the first non-French chef to receive three stars in France for his Menton-based Mirazur.

A Colagreco signature, this refreshingly light vegetarian carpaccio is inspired by his time in the vegetable garden with his grandfather. For this dish, heirloom tomatoes and peaches are sliced paper-thin, then dressed with pistachios, chives, and ginger vinaigrette.

Orange-marinated seabream sits is joined by mint oil, orange sauce, and pistachio. It’s multi-dimensional: think soft, almost raw fish, crunchy shaved fennel, and sweet zesty dressing.

Tartufo Pizza

Watch the chefs at work in the Den as they stretch out the dough, top it with smoked scamorza cheese cream and Tuscan salami, and twirl it around in the oven until the crust is blistered. A rain of fresh black truffles bring an earthy aroma to the already alluring dish.

Bistecca alla Fiorentina

This show-stopping slab of beef is dry-aged, well charred, served medium-rare, and dressed in a luscious hazelnut sauce. Don’t miss the meat on the bone, which is caramelised and fatty. Accompanied by thinly-sliced eggplants and wilted spinach, the dish is large enough for two.

More Modernist art than dessert, the emblematic tiramisu fills an entire bowl with mascarpone cream, Amaretto, and espresso, then crowned with a biscuit circle. Creamy, bittersweet, and an indulgent ending to a meal at Fiamma.
