I'm guessing on the romantic dinner bit, but the girls and I agree that it would be perfect! The restaurant is small and cosy, and reservations are a must. I went with some girlfriends for a catch up lunch and couldn't have picked a better place. The food is simple, fresh, and delicious. There is no menu so Chef Fratini personally checks on any food allergies/issues, and then disappears into the kitchen, periodically sending out tasting portions of his creations. I love it - no decisions to make on what to dar, I can concentrate on the company and the food..

Multi-talented Chef Fratini who is also a painter cooks up a storm at his eponymous restaurant. The service was excellent and Fratini was an excellent host. The food was delightful - the menu; Italian omakase at the hands of a master chef. And also prices offered very good value.

Chef presented every course, made provision for the little ones ( though full price was charged) . Food made with much care and pride. Not cheap, but worth the time and expense.

A birthday celebration for my wife after her actual birthday was spent the day before flying between USA and Singapore. The owner Gabriel is a very attentive and charming host and very welcoming of children. He provides a degustation style meal with a main course and dessert at the end, but with no menu. The wines are even his choice but can provide particular styles if requested. The pork belly starter was outstanding and set the tone for the many courses to come. After the typical Singaporian + +'s the total bill for 4 including five glasses of very good wine was just under $500, so don't go there if you are looking for a cheap night out. But I have paid about twice the nominal $85 + + per head (kids eat the same) for a degustation menu with food of lesser quality. My wife's dessert even came in the form of a birthday cake.

We stumbled upon Fratini's on my birthday last year, although very busy we were given "the best 2 seats in the house" (at the end of the long work counter). There is no menu, so Gabriel creates and explains a wonderful 4 - 8 course (lunch or dinner - we've had both) array of dishes that are served "tapas" style. Although the food is fantastic Gabriel and Leng (his wife) make it much more than a great meal. No matter how busy it is, they take the time to chat and joke with their guests and add a real personal touch to make it memorable experience.
