Chiaroscuro Trattoria Pizzeria

Head to Chiaroscuro Trattoria Pizzeria where chef Andrea Zanella has a cult following among KL’s foodies. This is because the northeastern Vicenza native does not compromise when it comes to his food, which is based on the origins of Italian cooking. Take, for example, his spaghetti in carbonara sauce, which is unlike the usually sodden and overcooked version found in many establishments, and is instead cooked to perfection using pork cheek and lightly tossed with an egg yolk. “The dishes here are done the way they’re supposed to be … in a balanced way and according to traditions back in Italy,” says Zanella. Ditto their pizzas, which are wood-fired to perfection with a thin crust and a slightly thicker border—this is a must for those looking for fine quality Italian food in a precious, contemporary setting.
