Rubato, a restaurant worthy of praise, and for good reason. This restaurant is ideal for parties (sadly not now since we are in Phase 2 Heightened Alert) who enjoy diversity. Small appetizers like Michelin-quality burrata, Hokkaido sea scallops wrapped in parma ham, and cold angel hair pasta with scallop sashimi and white truffle oil-infused Japanese seaweed (aptly called ‘A Gift From The Angels’) will fill your tummy, leaving you awe struck. From the pasta to the meats, everything is hand picked and made to perfectly bring the taste of Italy to Singapore. You can’t miss the silky-smooth squid ink seafood risotto, extra-thin or fluffy hand-stretched pizzas, and a variety of other pasta dishes. We haven’t even gotten to the meats yet! The enormous crispy suckling pig will be the talk of the table, amongst others, it is a must-have for large gatherings.

Super Dario was founded as Singapore’s first lasagna café, combining the founder’s personal name with the popular Nintendo game Super Mario. If you’re yearning for Garfield’s favorite dish, you know where to go: it’s a modest eatery with more than 10 distinct varieties of lasagna, wow! The lasagne servings range from the normal Super Dario minced beef to the Super Dario Truffle. If you’re going with a large party, go for the full trays of lasagne, which can feed 6-8 people and are around 20-30% less expensive.

Limoncello focuses on grilled delights and pizzas and specializes in Italian cuisine from the Amalfi Coast. Dining in will have you sitting directly across from the beautiful Singapore river, so you’ll be able to enjoy both fantastic landscapes and delicious Italian cuisine. Carnivores will go crazy for the Meat Lovers pizza, which is made in the Neapolitan way. If you like seafood, the Linguine Aragosta, a pasta dish containing half a Boston Lobster, is a must-try. The natural juices of the lobster seep into the pasta, leaving a lovely rich flavor.

This popular spot in Bukit Timah serves delicious pasta and pizza. It’s worth noting that there is also a daily set lunch available! You can order a two- or three-course dinner, which includes chargrilled US steak and spinach ricotta ravioli as main courses. The veal and pork lasagne, garganelli, and scallop risotto are standouts that people tend to turn to as well. The Caesar salad here is a little different here but in a good way. Apart from the usual suspects like kale, parmesan and smoked salmon, it actually has generous shavings of… eggs. Yes, the grated eggs look like parmesan but they add a whole new dimension to this simple dish.

This famous restaurant, led by chief chef Valtulina Valentino, is a family operation. His mother assists in the kitchen, his father and brother-in-law Alberto supervise the dining area, and his sister Perla is in charge of the brightly colored sweets and pastries. Despite the fact that the restaurant has expanded from a tiny trattoria to a 134-seat facility at The Grandstand, it continues to serve great Italian cuisine with real warmth. If you choose to come here, the favourites are the squid ink fettucine as well as the grilled wagyu tomahawk.
