Description: Casual, Fine Dining Offering outstanding value and quality, casual Italian cuisine, in ITALY is an expression of Chef Mario Caramella’s own personality and culinary tastes. With full culinary and creative control, in ITALY is the realisation of a dream Chef Mario has quietly nurtured over an impressive 30-year career spanning Italy, Canada, UK, Hong Kong, Australia, Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore, where he was most recently Chef Patron at the award-winning Forlino Restaurant. Taking the cue from Chef Mario’s warm charisma and welcoming nature, in ITALY combines an ambience of comfort and style designed by Chef Mario himself to inspire good times with great friends. A trio of communal tables placed at the heart of the restaurant, for example, beckons as an area to gather, mingle and share in the convivial spirit that defines great Italian dining.

Mario has kept the menu small but it really packs a punch. Have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. Black squid pasta is rich and full of flavor, tuna is perfectly cooked, rocket salad fresh and light. Love the cosy atmosphere inside and prefer to sit at the high tables in the middle of the restaurant. We... More

Chef Mario and his team went over and above in all aspects of our dining. We loved it so much last time, we returned again on our recent visit to Singapore and loved it even more. We left the entire selection to Mario for our dinner for us and our guests.. Each dish was superb as was the wine labels... More

We were introduced to Mario through friends and he really looked after us. The service was matched by fantastic food - fresh of amazing provenance and great taste. Loved every minute of it.

One of the first Italian restaurants we tried in Singapore and this was my fourth time back. Good service. Al dente pasta and fantastic Burata with Parma ham. We brought our Italian friends here and they loved it. It's never been completely full when we've been an I don't know why. Perhaps. Hidden gem. We'll be back.

Had a great dinner, excellent starter of Stracciatella on eggplant caponata followed by pasta and delectable Tiramisu. The atmosphere was vibrant along with warm and attentive service. Overall a great evening!

We visited in Italy this weekend for an early Sunday dinner. The restaurant was empty but the place still had an ambiance about it. The staff continued to be very attentive as the restaurant filled and were quick and efficient with the orders/drinks. The menu is varied, from pastas to meats and the food well executed. Usual Spore prices for... More

Out of all the dishes the Singaporeana was good. All the tomato sauce were way too sweet. They are not used to getting children. Won't be coming back in a hurry.

We came here in a group of eight, the table was set, so we could all see and talk to each other very cool indeed. We were recommended a Barolo from Chef Mario's personal collection, very smooth indeed. A variety of dishes we shared, from pastas to sea bass, and then we had to wait a while for the finale,...

Reasonable value to visit at lunch for the 2 course limited choice menu. I opted for the soup and a pasta, both of which were good without being great. At the price I certainly can't complain. Service was enthusiastic but a little slow, which was perhaps our own fault for not requesting slightly faster than normal service upon arrival.

I came here with my colleagues for our lunch. There weren't many people at the restaurant so the ambience was lovely. We ordered the two course lunch menu and were very impressed with the quality of the food. In particular, the clams and mussels (from different dishes ) was fresh. My minestrone soup was one of the best I've ever... More
