Restaurant & Bar Awards 2022

Page 34 LUX 2022 Restaurant & Bar Awards Named after Burlamacco, a carnival event that showcases the characteristics and essence of the famous town of Viareggio, Burlamaccco is the most famous Italian carnival in Tuscany. Burlamacco Ristorante gives authenticity to traditional Tuscan cuisine while adding a modern twist– carefully crafted to provide its customer’s palate with an unforgettable experience. While Viareggio is known for the unique portrayal of traditional Italian carnivals, it is also the hometown of Burlamacco Ristorante’s chef and founder, Gabriele Piegaia, who uses his lineage as the inspiration to establish the reputation of Singapore’s Best Classic Tuscan Cuisine Restaurant. Gabriele began his journey in the industry, moving across the Michelin-starred kitchens in Italy, refining his skills as he travelled throughout several countries. Through this adventure, Gabriele landed in Singapore and began working within places such as Senso, Hotel Michael and Alkaff Mansion, to name a few. After working within these establishments, a new dream took hold of Gabriele, and that is when he discovered his passion for cooking, while advanced and skilled in the art of creation, was missing his flare – and thus, Burlamacco Ristorante was born. Welcoming guests to a cosy atmosphere perfectly complimented by a wide variety of mouth-watering dishes and excellent wines, Burlamacco Ristorante captures the essence of Italy from the atmosphere to the final bite. From specialities such as Cacciucco; a traditional fish and seafood stew often associated with the coastal towns of Livorno and Viareggio, to Agnello; oven baked lamb Located cosily on the ground floor of 217 East Coast Road, Burlamacco Ristorante was established to bring an authentic dining experience of traditional yet modernised Tuscan cuisine to the people of Singapore. Regarded as the Best Classic Tuscan Cuisine Restaurant, Burlamacco Ristorante caters to the palette of those who wish to go to Tuscany – locally.
