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.

“Best Bistecca, and more, in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2015

This is our nth time in this restaurant but it's our first time to try the Bistecca, which was simply delightful. A big chunk of soft, juicy, succulent Angus, roasted to perfection, melt-in-your mouth texture; paired with the smoothest polenta and the tastiest peperonata we've ever had -- heaven! The last time we had Bistecca this good was in Florence! The tagliatelle bolognese ragu is our favorite -- simple yet rich in flavor. The burrata with prosciutto was firm, creamy and delicious. Without doubt, this restaurant uses only the freshest and best ingredients. Service was prompt, efficient and not intrusive. Not an inexpensive place but it's worth every penny.

“Ease and elegance, great recipe for a good evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2015

In Italy has managed to combine the people and food focus well enough to make you feel genuinely welcome in a spacious environment as well as to feed you really well all this with humility. Their wine list is generous and affordable.

“Tasty and original”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2015

It's always good to find a proper Italian restaurant that not only sports the name but actually deliver what is supposed to: original country food.
This restaurant is a good discovery in Singapore. Few dishes rather than many means the chef can concentrate on what he cooks best.
Not cheap but it's Singapore.
