Our dinner at pocoloco was rather amazing. The beef tenderloin with foil gras was awesome. The beef was nicely done at medium well and it went well with the foie gras and mixed vegetables as well as the sauce provided. My wife ordered the aglio...olio pasta and that was just as great. We started off with portebello mushroom and that was delicious as well. The only two things that may need to improve was the beef carpacio, maybe they should not have it on their regular menu as when I ordered it, I noticed the raw beef was already browning which is indicative that it is was not as fresh as required for that dish. Maybe they could change it to a dish for the day so as ensure freshness of the raw beef. The lava choc cake was delicious but they could tone down on the sweetness.More

This is a great italian restaurant served mostly by friendly Filipinos. Food tasted authentic. We had calamari, seafood pasta, baked scallops and drinks. Service was fast, food portions were great, calamari was not oily and it was just lightly battered. Yums! We enjoyed our dinner...and will definitely be back!! This place is a real gem!More

Mushrooms with chicken Risotto was great. Trying the baked scallop, Capesante was very good. Prawn salad was ok. Overall dining experience was great with nice ambience. Definitely a plus for neighbourhood cafe. However, is quite sad most cafe or restaurants in Singapore refusing to serve...tap water. Except bottled water, which is sold everywhere locally. I don't trust Dasani!!! Which can be found everywhere. Hope, things will change, Singapore water is cleaner and safer than any where in Asia.More

My partner and I were a bit tired of Asian food and wanted to go for an Italian restaurant whilst in Singapore. We were not disappointed at all, my partner had the Chef’s special: wagyu strip loin and it was mouthwatering, never had wagyu meat...before and it was so tasty, tender. I had the chicken lasagna which were very nice as well. The lava cake at the end of our course was perfect, not too rich, melted the way it should. The decor of the place is very nice with big pictures of their food on the walls as well as nice paper articles. You should definitely go and check it out, if you fancy a real Italian meal.More

Visited the outlet at Novena. Other than a few nice photos for some likes on instagram, this restaurant offers nothing more in aspects of taste or experience. Service was sub-par, and more importantly, the food is nothing of worth. We ordered the Manzo and Uni...Tagliolini. The Manzo was so-so, but the beef is a tad too hard. The pasta itself was at least al-dente. The Uni Tagliolini on the other hand, was a disaster. The dish itself was a waste of Uni, as the delicacy wasn’t brought out at all in the dish. If I had to compare to anything, it was $20+ overpriced spicy bak chor mee, because that’s what it taste like.More

It was the first visit , the waiter was patient and friendly to introduce the signature dishes as well as to propose the order based on my no meat preference. Nice and cozy place, with really nice food. Serving time was quick as well! Portion...of food was generous for the price. Very reasonableMore

Used to be a place we would look forward to enjoying a meal and ambience but turned out hugely disappointing today when we went. My fiancé ordered his favourite steak again today but taste was off from the previous nice succulent cooked beef. I tried...a new dish - mentaiko pasta. Not bad but not impressive either. Had tiramisu to end off our meal but it was all cream and hard biscuit when you dig your spoon in. Total different from the fragrant liquor soaked version I used to order. After giving feedback, they were unable to fix it too (unlike the previous two times when I found the same issue). Staff also can’t seem to problem solve... just there to serve dishes and clear up after. Wasn’t able to help recommend alternatives we could consider to still experience our intended meal experience. Left without our tiramisu and with a less than satisfied after meal experience. Now heading home to cook up some snack to fill the GAP 😓More

A few items not available on the menu when we visited on a weekday. Quite disappointed... Way too much mascarpone than the coffee-flavoured ladyfingers. Overrated and overhyped!
