We had a wonderful dinner at S$70 per head for share appetiser and dessert. Corkage was $30 per bottle. Service was friendly, professhional and attentive. Food was well presented, at the right temperature and great taste. I would recommend their homemade Stracci Al Gamberi - thin piece of broad fresh pasta with seafood in white wine and saffron cream sauce,... More

We booked off a corner of the restaurant on the 2nd floor for a friend's birthday earlier this month, and were very happy with the service provided. Food was delicious - my personal favourites were the calamari, john dory and squid ink pasta, and I will definitely be back!

Dinner for 2. Had expectations (online reviews and the many awards on the wall). Meal was quite dissapointing. Starters: Gamberi Con Aglio - not sure if the shrimp was fresh Capesante Alla Cardinale Gratinate - it said they'd be sauteed with white wine, bechamel sauce and ovenglazed. The scallops were practically swimming in a thick sauce; the sauce taking away... More

The food is great. Very authentic and the owner / manager is very attentive. Fairly extensive selection all across the menu, including wine and desert. On top of that, loved the rustic feel to the restaurant. Only "complaint" is parking is a bit awkward. Why not offer valet service?

I asked for a cosy corner as it was my bf's birthday and I got what I wanted. There is even a surprise birthday tiramisu to go with !

Pasta Brava is one of the very few Italian restaurants where the waiters do not force you to order more than what you can eat. They are friendly and quick on the service. My husband and I both liked our pasta dish very much. He had the Seafood Linguine and I had the Squid Ink Pasta. We also had Bruschetta... More

This very overrated restaurant can be best be summed up by our cheese course. When asked what the cheese selection was, as you would do in a supposedly fine dining Italian restaurant, the waiter said "I don't know, they came out of a packet and they had no labels on". He then added, as if to help "that's the blue... More

Went on a lunch date with my partner and while the restaurant was packed, luckily, we were given a table in a minute. We ordered an antipasti: portobello mushrooms in olive oil (funghi trifolati), black ink rice with seafood (risotto al nero), homemade pasta with prawns and scallops(stracci al gamberi e capesante and for dessert: tiramisu. All the food we... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
