Tredici Ristorante - Little Italy in the Heart of Jakarta

Tredici, which is 'thirteen' in Italian - represents the 13 shareholders. The place envisioned itself to be a homey Italian restaurant to offer authentic Italian food, done the right and proper way.

The ambiance and decor was as praiseworthy as their food. Set up to be a what seem to be a very rustic villa in Italy, with all those wood material applied all over the interior, jazz music playing along, dim warm lighting and simply the whole little trinkets. Decked out in blue and white with light wood and faux grass covering one wall, it possesses all the elements of a laid back chic restaurant.

WNJ first arrival was awesome, Stella, one of the owners kindly took us around the place.  The place was very nice. Stella also told us that the owners wants this place to be more like a small villa in Italy, where the ambience is really warm and just exactly like Tredici wants us to feel. The outdoor area is not exactly outdoor, it is more like the area with more access to the natural light. So, you don’t have to worry when the rain comes, you won’t be wet ;)

As for the menu, they have Italian, off course! Every customer who came will get their Complimentary Bread. The bread was homemade by Tredici, you must have them while they're still warm, the cheese stick is very tasty, the bread is also great and crunchy.  The basket portion came with pesto sauce for dipping, which was really good for a starter. 

After we had our complimentary bread, we had Tortellini Di Zucca; pumpkin tortellini, mushroom, sausage, butter sage sauce. It is a typical Christmas dish, but most Italian people love it throughout the whole winter with the wonderfully thick-fleshed, orange-red pumpkin.

When it comes to Italian, then there always be risotto, try their Arancini Balls; Italian risotto balls, contains turkey, mushroom, truffle oil, coated with breadcrumbs and deep fried, comes with marinara sauce.  A different way to enjoy risotto, Yummy!

Pizza! Tredici made their Mare Pizza very good.  It is a thin crust pizza topped with mozzarella cheese, with the tomato sauce, squid, shrimp, mussels, and the green olives. This restaurant cooks their pizzas the Italian way in a wood fire oven.

The must try dessert here is; Crespella Nocciola, a homemade crepe with banana brulee, hazelnut chocolate, and vanilla gelato.

For more information, they also have turkey menu, Tacchino Delle Feste;  turkey steak, with brandy cream gravy and homemade blueberry jam, goes with stewed vegetable and mashed potato. And also one of their signature menu; Costole Di Maiale Alla Trentina, it’s grilled pork chops with apple mustard sauce, potato gratin, and sauteed season vegetables.

Oh ya, they also have a bar upstairs, namely 13 Monkeys with Carson Quinn as the consultant. This one you should check out also!

All Italian goodness are here, the ambiance and decor was as praiseworthy as their food, so what are you waiting for?
