We love the food and the ambience is so romantic. BUT they DON'T accept Brunei dollars. The waiter told us that his Manager said they don't accept Brunei dollars. I told him that Brunei Currency is the same rate as Singapore rate. I so wanted to tell him that shall I call MAS to reconfirm? I know it's not his... More

I ate here twice at lunchtime. Once on a weekday and enjoyed it so much, I decided to return on a weekend. When I made the weekend reservation, I was told it was a weekend buffet brunch, which is fine. All of the food on the menu was brought out in succession; starters, pasta, then mains. This allows you to... More

Six of us met here for a reunion on Saturday night. Excellent food and wine, very pleasant surroundings, great views and first class service from our waiter Frankie. Would have given maximum points if they had not started ironing the linen on the tables around us as we were waiting for our deserts at 10.00pm on a Saturday evening. We... More

The setting was perfect and Forlino was a great choice for New Years Eve. The letdown was the food. Trying to deliver gourmet food in the style of a wedding feast in a fine dining restaurant is very hard to do. The service and ambience made up for it and the food was secondary - an odd thing to say... More

Finally in Singapore a truly Italian fine dining, difficult to find as the majority of italian restaurant in this city are serving almost the same typical menu. Highly suggested to sophisticated Italian food lovers ,... More

It all started on the faithful F1 race night. We were invited to Forlino to watch the F1 race on the 25 Sep. When we all stepped in, we felt something was amiss. Alas, the room temperature was slightly higher than usual. We thought it must be the heat from the race and excitement. But as the night goes on... More

We dined in the private Serena room overlooking the bay. Service was exceptional, food was spot-on Italian. Price, like anything in Singapore was expensive but worth it. As much as I enjoyed the wonderful rawness of the outdoor Hawker Centre downtown. It was good to get out of the humidity and enjoy a terrifc plate of pasta in the air... More

Went there recently for a colleague's farewell lunch. For all the hype, the food was underwhelming - not terrible but not worth the anticipation either. We had to keep waving to the service staff for water, olive oil for the bread, cracked pepper, coffee and the bill. There were plenty of staff but they all seemed to be rushing about... More

Hired the small private room for my mum's 70th birthday. The views over the bay are breathtaking and the room was very well decorated. A special venue indeed. Service was attentive but not particularly knowledgeable about the quite extensive wine menu. Drinks prices have a spectacular mark up (£30 retail in UK selling for £140) although granted I am not...
