“A Great Place for a Celebration”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

Celebrated my birthday with family recently. The restaurant has a beautiful ambience and is dark and cozy. We ordered a range of appetizers, oysters, rocket salad with burrata cheese, tuna cappraccio and cold cut platter. Everything was done perfectly and the homemade bread were fabulous! We went easy on the main course with 200g grass fed black angus tenderloin, 200g filetto qand charred 400g grilled pork cutlet to share. This fed perfectly for our group of 4 adults and 2 kids. The quality and cooking for the main courses were also excellent. The sommelier also recommended a very good wine to go with everything. Overall pricey but its worth the splurge once in a while!

“Top 15%”
Reviewed May 17, 2014 via mobile

This is in the top 15% of places we've visited. Not many 5s on our list but this place is worthy. We had no booking but as we'd arrived early evening there were still a small number of tables which were not booked until later. From arrival, we were acknowledged by all staff we came across with being over bearing. Our table service was excellent, attentive knowledgable. Food (fillet steak and cod) was excellent. Ambience also very good. Restaurant and open kitchen appeared very clean. Beer only by the bottle and pricey was a downside. Not a cheap night out but certainly one we'll repeat.

“Good steaks but ..”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

A long and narrow restaurant set among the Muhammad Sultan row of shophouses - pleasant in atmosphere but those bringing babies in prams, do note that there is a flight of stairs required to enter the restaurant. The decor revolves around the kitchen which is set right in the middle, which is interesting and yet has somewhat made the entire restaurant look more cramped than it really is.

The steak - i think one needs to be aware that this restaurant serves Fiorentina steak - and its done charred on the outside, with a medium or medium rare inside, flavoured simply with salt (we think). This is slightly different to the steak style served in many of Singapore's other steakhouses. We had the wagyu bone in rib eye and it was very good with a pure taste of good quality beef without being smothered by any flavourings.

The "but" in the review is caused by very mediocre sides which was a rather flat accompaniment to the great steaks. Our sides of mushrooms and fries were just ok and to be honest probably spoiled the enjoyment of the steaks a little.

An average score may be a little harsh to some, but there are good steakhouses in Singapore that deliver a more enjoyable overall experience from both a culinary and ambience standpoint. The Fiorentina steak style though is unique and well done.

“Great meal”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Singapore is replete with new, chic places that are "good", but one often (or at least I) leaves feeling with "was it really fulfilling (not just from a caloric perspective) and/or worth the tab?"

Well, Bistecca was, both from a culinary perspective, as well as a very pleasant atmosphere and competent, friendly staff.

The meal started with some rustic bread with two dips (one i believe was a chicken liver or something pate', very good).

We had scallops for starters (good), then I ordered the porcini/black truffle risotto, while my companion ordered an 800grams cut of steak (the filet was sold out).

I was very pleased with the portion of my risotto (not a paltry two-table spoons). It was rich (ie, creamy) and while not spectacular, it was definitely very good with generous servings of mushroom / shaves of black truffle.
Girlfriend remarks on the steak were along the lines of "amazing". The steak was served with a basil sauce and a classic steak sauce (complimentary, unlike at some other steakhouses where they nickle-dime on bernaise..)

No complaints on the side of creamy spinach.
As there was a bottleneck in the kitchen and we had to wait a while for our mains, the staff offered complementary dessert (well, at least one): We had a very good tiramisu (just perfectly heavy mascarpone goodness) and a refreshing apricot "sorbetto" (maybe more icecream than sorbetto ;) ).

Bill was about $100ish per head (with no booze), but one does not leave hungry, that's for sure.

Btw, I liked that the staff also gave the option of "sparkling, still ...or just plain" on the water...

“Wonderful steaks”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

This Italian restaurant is run by a native Italian and so the food is much more authentic than others you may visit in Singapore. One goes principally for the steaks - which are superb, certainly the best I've eaten for a long time, possibly ever. They are big so make sure you haven't eaten too much lunch to do it justice! The side dishes are also great and the tuna carpaccio as a starter was lovely.

The service was excellent, friendly, knowledgeable and on time.

You can choose to eat inside or out, but you will need to book particularly at the weekends.

This is an expensive restaurant even by Singapore standards so expect to pay for the best steaks in town!
