“Nice location in SAM, food is a mixed bag”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Went for dinner, place is very busy Sat evening, reservation highly recommended, outdoor seating under museum arcades. Friendly and competent service. We liked: crispy bruschetta, excellent ragu and apple tart, however the frutti di mare sauce was not fresh and the tuna salad, although generously apportioned felt like from the tin. Wine was good, but too warm.

Would we come again: maybe

“Nice restaurant, good food, lovely service with a nice atmosphere”
Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

We visited this restaurant quite a few times and we were never disappointed.

The service is good, Italian food was the most authentic in the City and the house red was delightful.

Eating inside the restaurant is a typically lively Italian experience with a bustling atmosphere, eating outside is a little quieter and very well serviced with excellent canopy providing cooling fans and lighting if required.

My lower score of 4 in respect of value for money is more in relation to Singapore being an expensive place to eat and drink western food rather than the restaurant specifically.

“Top Italian resturants in Singapore”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We went for lunch on Sunday, our family of four, easy and free parking in front of the museum, nice welcome by the stuff. The food was nicely served. We ordered fresh mozzarella, pasta, pizza and risotto - all were very good. The risotto was a bit too salty but still good, the pizza and Solomon pasta were excellent. Dishes are bit small but still reasonable. House white win was great s well. The space is pleasant and service was efficient.

“Very good! Will return.”
Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

Restaurant Week Menu for us ($55++ set)
Very very full...
Quality was good... Though u could see the portions were smaller (eg. Our pasta vs the ala carte order on the next table - which costs $22.60, was definitely smaller)

We had an appetiser platter of grill squid on salad, Parma ham & Melon (Italian melon much better than the local produce available in SG), veal/beef w a tuna mayo type sauce... Very satisfying... Memories of our 3 week Italian holiday...

Pumpkin soup - not bad, not too starchy not too watery... I'm not a soup fan (wife finished her bowl). Had an almond biscuit floating that made it sweet after a while...

Beef steak was cooked nicely though a bit rarer than what wife ordered.
I had the pasta which was good. (see comment on size above)

Dessert was good, wife enjoyed her tiramisu and I had the ice cream (too full by then really)

Will return to try their ala carte menu!

Other table had a $128 "rib" ~1kg which looked fantastic... And they also had squid ink pasta which the wife was salivating over (will definitely be ordering that next time)

Very happy and pretty good service experience till the end around 9.30pm when 5-7 tables walked in, then the staff got busy and could not remember our tea/coffee order, came back to check and still got my tea wrong... I don't mind peppermint (asked for green) so did not make a fuss..

“Thumbs up!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

This restaurant makes it to my favorite choices in Singapore! Starting from a great Italian atmosphere, extremely friendly staff, great Italian food of an authenticity I gave up to seek in Asia, this restaurant offers also an extensive wine list with top italian wines (pio cesare, santa christina etc. also more top notch wines) for extremely reasonable prices, this restaurant just offered us a great evening. And for western food in S'Pore, the food prices are really low, too. If you are a tourist looking for some real western cuisine again or like myself an expat being fed up with asian food once in a while: give this place a try!
