I have been to Al Dente Trattoria 3 times including one back in 2009 and I am clearly under the impression that the place has evolved quite unfavourably. Food is ok, service is ok...but now I leave the place with the impression this restaurant is...More

We came with a group of friends wanting to try out Al Dente's famous dishes as it was Restaurant Week in Singapore. Everything about the place was disappointing - from food to service.

very poor service in terms of time or attention (staff just going through the motions). Food was poor. We (4) had a variety of dishes from a pizza to the fish which ranged from OK to very disappointing. Never again. This restaurant will not survive...More

Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighborhood in the
traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to
dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is
the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a
world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars,
and other attractions all geared towards pure
entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands
provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo
