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.

The pizzas are very good and a decent size for the price. The wine by the glass is a disappointment; go for the Italian beer instead, it's really nice and served ice cold. There's the usual suspects for pasta, some of the party ordered various dishes and pronounced them as good but I really can't go past the fantastic parma ham pizza. Good value for money.

We work in UOB Plaza on Boat Quay so this is our local Italian for lunch. We always start by sharing a Piadina which is an Italian flatbread with tomato, chilli and herbs. Then you can choose a variety of oil based, cream based, tomato based, etc sauces to pair with a large selection of pastas, including several different types of vegetarian and meat stuffed pastas (eg ravioli) in addition to tagliatelle, fettuccine, spaghetti, pappardelle, not to mention home made gnocchi. There is also a good range of pizzas which are substantial and excellent too.

Everything is freshly made and delicious and always comes hot out of the kitchen straight to the table. Service is friendly and efficient and overseen by a kind Italian lady. We will keep coming back every week as long as it remains this good!

The only good point: most of the staff in the kitchen and the manager are Italians, so they should know what to do.
The reality: food is very average, extremely overpriced. Service is very, very poor. The manager is not capable of doing is job: he had an argument with many customers and with most of the staff in the kitchen. I could hear him shouting in Italiana nd he was not saying nice things.

Basic Italian menu with reasonable portions and good quality. Some of the service could have been a little sharper. The restaurant wasn't busy when we were there.
