Great Food, Great Restaurant

Pasta Brava is one of my favourite restaurants in Singapore. It's located in the Chinatown area just off Tanjong Pagar and is close to full most evenings. There's a reason for this: it has great staff, a great chef and serves great Italian food. My friends and I, who visit there intermittently... read more

Came here for dinner with my partner for her birthday. The staff were excellent, hospitable and very attentive to our needs. The food was also fresh and fantastic. We had the spinach ravioli and squid ink pasta. They were absolutely spectacular! Seafood was fresh and the pasta was done really well (al dente). Highly recommended.The only thing we felt could...

This place has a wall of awards and may I say, well deserved. It's got a great fancy yet homely ambience. Great wait staff that pays attention to each table and takes the initiative to make sure you've got everything you need before you even know you need it. Excellent food!

We have been to this restaurant for a few times and we enjoyed it very much each time we were there. The restaurant is inside an old shophouse and with nice romantic decor. It is always full at dinner time so reservation is recommended. Great Italian food and the owner is Italian. Service is very good.

Came here on my first date and I must say, my boyfriend brought me to the right place. Dinner time can be full house, so reservation is best. Food was amazing, we especially liked the squid ink pasta. Can't remember what other dishes we got, but overall they are all nice.

*Charmaine and I chanced upon Pasta Brava, located along the row of conservation shophouses at Tanjong Pagar area. The dimly romantic interior decor was both tasteful and intimate, yet there was no pretentiousness to it at all. There are Straits Chinese decorations and souveinirs around the restaurant, as well as paintings done by the owner's brother. The restaurant has two... More

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!

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.
