Burlamacco Ristorante East Coast Italian Restaurant – No Corkage BYO On Tue & Thu

Burlamacco East Coast is the newer outlet of Burlamacco Ristorante whose first outlet is at Stanley Street in the Singapore CBD area. Their East Coast Road outlet has a contemporary restaurant decor, which is a big contrast from the traditional Italian restaurant style of the other. However, the food is just as good. The best days to visit are the no corkage days of Tuesday and Thursday.

Casual East Coast Italian Restaurant

According to their website, “Burlamacco is a carnival mask featuring the characteristic essence of the famous town of  Viareggio in Tuscany where the most famous Italian carnival takes place.” Consistent with its name, the restaurant features Tuscan cuisine.

The East Coast outlet has a more relaxed and casual atmosphere than its CBD sister. This rather spacious restaurant was manned by just two personnel, but they were more than capable of handling the off-peak diners on a weekday. Service was pleasant and friendly.

Burlamacco Ristorante Corkage free BYO on Tuesday and Thursday

One extra reason to visit Burlamacco is the no corkage policy on Thursdays and Tuesdays at both their outlets. Wines are usually expensive at restaurants – high mark-ups, service charge and GST all contribute to an expensive meal with wines. It an incentive to visit restaurants on off peak weekdays like Tuesdays and Thursdays armed with a familiar bottle of wine.

On this occasion we brought along a bottle of 2014 Chateau Lilian Ladouys. We thought that a mid-range, full-bodied red wine from St-Estèphe, Bordeaux will be a match for the meats and heavy sauces of Tuscan cuisine. It certainly did and improved the enjoyment of the meal.

Burlamacco Ristorante East Coast Menu

The restaurant menu is available online. Here are some sample pages of the menu for a quick reference. We selected the Fritto Misto (deep-fried seafood, $28), Paparedelle (pasta with pork leg ragout marinated in red wine $28) and Maiale (pork chop, $46)

Tuscan Lunch in the East

Here are pictures of our lunch.The portions were not big but were enough in total to be shared between two people.

The seafood starter (picture above) was mostly calamari that was plump and juicy. Pappardelle (picture below) looked like a small dish but the broad strips of pasta (like kway teow) together with the pork ragout sauce made it a rather heavy dish. Perfect with red wine.

Our last dish, the pork chop was the most substantial dish that day. The pork was cooked just nice. It had a mild flavour without any ‘porkiness”. Together with the vegetables, potato and cheese topping, that could have been enough for a light meal for two on a day when we are not so hungry.

Overall, it was a nice weekday lunch at Burlamacco Ristorante East Coast on a corkage free BYO day. Good food made better with the wine we brought from home.
