2it & drink – Fresh Italian Pasta and Oven-Fired Pizzas at Valley Point
The ‘dangerous’ thing that happened to me. Once you eat good freshly-made pasta, it can be quite difficult to go back to the regular commercial-types.
I have been to 2it&drink at Valley Point a few times because the pasta and pizzas have been favorably tasty, though not regularly enough, because it won’t exactly be a cheap meal. (On a side note, Valley Point has been revamped recently. Hoping for more exciting eats there.)
The owners of the more upscale Italian restaurants OTTO Ristorante and OTTO Locanda have set up this more casual outlet with a catchy name, 2it&drink, which essentially means ‘to eat and drink’ and is also an abbreviation of “Italy”.
Pasta prices start from $20 for a Spaghetti Alla Carbonara to $28 for a Fettuccine Al Frutti Di Mare at $28, while pizzas average at about $26 for a whole.
Portions were not overly huge, and could be consumed in a few mouthfuls if you take big bites.
The additional price to pay was for the fresh pasta churned out by the pasta lab within. Tender chewy texture that I took immerse pleasure when chewing, with that rich eggy flavour.
The thing about handmade pasta that it complements sauces a lot better, absorbing the flavours partially, and it feels more connected with the ingredients.
The fluffy pizza bases are made from scratch, topped with quality ingredients cooked in wood-fired ovens within sight.
Starters such as the Calamari Fritti ($15) were decent. If only the location and price were more accessible, they would have more sizable popularity.
As I said, once you tasted quality pasta, there is no turning back.
