DOMVS – The Grande Dame of Italian Dining

   

DOMVS is called the ‘grande dame’ of Italian dining, opened since 1985. Stepping into DOMVS, the Italian Restaurant (pronounce as if the “V” is a “U”) at the Sheraton Towers Singapore, I cannot help but continue the feeling of being in Europe. (Read: Brasserie Les Saveurs at St Regis.)

DOMVS means ‘home’ in Latin and the entire ambience gives you the impression of being in a rich European house.

One is greeted by the calm, confident and classy décor of the grande dame of Italian dining which has over 20 years of history in Singapore. My only question is, “Why has this Italian restaurant been falling out of the radar?”

The restaurant which offers contemporary Italian cuisine looked grand, but the emptiness with three or four tables filled during the weekends felt more startling. Perhaps it is because Sheraton Towers has always been known to be a business hotel and thus the patrons mainly come in during weekdays.

I felt sufficiently prepped for the delectable meal, and I was not disappointed.

We were greeted by two refreshing-tasting Antipasto (both at $26), one a dish of thinly-sliced smoked ocean trout served with mixed fruit salad and wasabi balsamic dress, and the next thinly sliced wagyu beef eye-round cured in Trapani rock salt served with seasonal salad and pecorino Romano cheese.

The truth is, I was not expecting much looking at the number of customers dining. But the grills here are impressive.

The Kurobuta Pork Jowl ($42) was evenly grilled with a slight glaze, tender on the inside and made more invigorating with an apple tonka bean puree that lifts the entire dish up.

Though lamb is not one of my favourite meats, the Grilled Lamp Chop ($46) marinated in oregano garlic served with mustard sauce can almost change my impression of that. This was the star dish of the day, tasty, succulent, and full of flavours.

To top off the meal, I had a Freshly Baked Warm Peanut Butter Lava Cake served with rum & raisin ice cream ($20) for dessert. Good. It is not the usual lava cake.

Service is impeccable, intuitive and intimate. I can imagine many business matters discussed confidently here. Indeed, DOMVS offers a regular 2-course executive set lunch at $35, and 3-course at $42.
