Description: When the name Pasta Fresca Da Salvatore comes to mind, the first thought would be "Italian food" for most Singaporeans. As the pioneer in the industry to serve authentic Italian food, the name leaves a deep impression, even more so on regular customers who have been with us for 25 years. Pasta Fresca is not just your regular Italian joint, we have an inimitable identity and that derives from our strong passion to entertain customers with great service and serve pure Italian food. The simple but proven formula of fresh food and great service is a true formula for business success. Pasta Fresca strongly believes in providing the freshest ingredients and freshly made fresh pasta and sauces. Pastas are produced without preservatives and additives as opposed to using dried pasta. Besides producing for its own use, Pasta Fresca distributes to five star hotels, restaurants, airlines and other related businesses through its factory in Pandan Loop. It has its proprietary products of wine, olive oil and also other Italian food products which are specially imported from Italy. Pasta Fresca's restaurant chain is known for its wide selection of pastas (16 variety) and sauces (21 variety), giving its guests the flexibility to create their own pasta dish. Pasta Fresca's outlets are usually nestled in charming neighbourhoods in a cluster of casual eateries and its Boat Quay outlet, next to the tranquillity of the Singapore River. Guests are treated with friendly service with serene surroundings, which is befitting to Pasta Fresca's concept of casual & relaxed dining with warm hospitality. Authentic South Italian cuisines are served in trattoria-styled setting. One testimony of Pasta Fresca's popularity is the numerous catering requests. Its catering arm offers in-house and off-premise catering events such as weddings, corporate events, birthday parties, Christmas and New Year celebrations and more.

Whilst in search actually of Al Forno, (the Singapore pizza holy grail?) I accidentally found ourselves in Pasta Fresca. OK, I overshot my destination and had not the heart to back track with youngsters in tow. In the rain. I was loathe to expend my pizza searching energies short of intended target, but opted for it in an effort to cut my losses. I did enjoy the pizza, and I am hard to please in the pizza department. I was quite happy that the pizza crust was light and crisp, but with proper tenderness between the crackle. The sauce was very close to what I consider the requirement, could perhaps be a bit more acidic for my taste. The cheese was quite suitable, the stretch and taste of the melted mozzarella pointed toward quality. A touch of salt may have been lacking, but that is readily rectified, if necessary. Alas, in the pasta department three stars vs four. The pasta was a minute or two past al dente for my taste, and I was not a fan of the granularity of the meat in the bolognese sauce. The youngsters were happy enough with it. That said, the pizza justified the trip.

The location of this restaurant is great and it has outside and inside dinning. It is 200 feet off Orchard Rd, 100 feet from the Holiday inn Singapore Orchard City Centre on Cavenagh Rd. and about 1000 feet from the Somerset MRT. They have just about every kind of pasta you could want, the service is great, the food is great and the prices are great. If you are staying around Orchard Rd you need to go to this restaurant. You can smoke at some of the outside tables and it is still great for non-smokers (me)....

Had dinner here last month, but I visited before many times. The restaurant I visited is very close to Orchard Road, in a contest of many different restaurants from all over the world.
They have a good variety of fresh pastas, pizzas, meat and fish.
I had a simple, but very good Penne all'Arrabbiata (a little bit overcooked for me, but was ok) and a wonderful Mozzarella and Parma ham. The staff is friendly and professional and fair enough for that kind of place.
Is not a restaurant for a romantic dinner, but the place is clean and well organized.
Very well recommended for business lunch or dinner, dinner with friends or colleagues and all who loves good Italian food.

Sensational Italian flavor in an Asian city.
The food Wine Service all without fault. My meal was full of Italian flavor. The waiters very helpful and aware. Even the house white was elegant. The ambience of Boat Quay sitting by the river with romantic views.

I went to this restaurant for lunch and had the calzone, it was ok. The croquetas for the appetizer were not great. Atmosphere was basic as was the service. Average and unmemorable describes it best. Overall, would not recommend this place.
