First time to this Italian restaurant in Boat Quay. Serves very authentic Italian food. Must try is the Ravioli ai Porcini. A bit pricy but worth it. Highly recommended

Stopped here for tea while walking down Boat Quay. Food was delicious and plentiful. We sat inside as outside was full. Staff friendly if a little slow.

I Made a reservation Saturday, February 11, 2023, for 7pm. Made it at 7, got seated at 7:08. Once seated the waitress gave us a couple minutes to look over the menu. She took our drink order and appetizer order. Drinks came out, no information...given about the appetizer ordered at 7:12 (margherita pizza and a mixed salad). People that arrived after us, food had come out. So around 8:10 I inquired about our appetizers. Waitress said it's in the kitchen let me check. I went back to the table. She came out and said that the other waitress was new and forgot to put the order in. There were only 2 waitresses that evening. My husband asked for the check for the drinks, and we left.More

A little gem by the river! I had the Bruschetta and pasta vongole, both delicious, generous portions and good value for money! Great service from our Italian waiter, very welcoming. Lovely atmosphere! I will be back!

After having tried three different restaurant in Singapore, this was the best to us. Wonderful and fantastic "Bolognese" and "Orecchiette con la burrata". I advice the "Bruschette" as well.

Very generous serving of chicken - quite pricey but was definitely worth it. Although a very small serving of posties alongside it. Pizza was also not bad - decent priced

Came here on a quiet weekday - made a reservation but it was not necessary at all - hardly a crowd along Boat Quay. Ordered the Buratta as a starter - it was not bad but I had much better renditions elsewhere. The pasta -...Alio Olio and Risotto were not bad - decent sized portions. The clams were quite fresh on the risotto. I ordered the Milanese - this is a letdown. First of all, it was not Veal - which should be the meat Milanese should be cooked with. Parts of the Veal was cooked well done but other parts were quite rare. Service wise - it was quick and efficient. The setting should be much nicer in the evenings when it is cool and breezy.More

The food was not too bad but the service was TERRIBLE. I booked a reservation was 7:30 pm and specifically called in earlier in the morning to have outdoor seating by the riverside. I was informed that in order to have that, I would have...to arrive earlier around 7:00 pm. We arrived at 6:30 pm and was seated outside. However, we were not given the tables we requested for. We checked and queried and was repeatedly turned down by the Manager / Owner (caucasian male). Only when my order was taken by the lady that took my call earlier, were we given the seat we requested for. But this was clearly done with absolute reluctance. To make things worse, the manager/owner mentioned that the table was reserved. Only to give it up for caucasian diners with no reservations and just walking in. Throughout dinner, the manager/owner had no qualms going around table to table asking about the food and service but conveniently skipped over us. ONLY US. Furthermore, when it was time to pay there was no communication. He took my card and returned it. No thank yous, no nothing. IF YOU'RE ASIAN STAY AWAY. As they only seem to communicate and cater to the caucasian customers. Additional Information from his unpleasant and dreadful reply: as people can judge from the owner's reply, his defence is to generalise the rude and atrocious behaviour exhibited by his staff, as 'hospitable service from Italy', be elusive and apologise to shift the blame thereafter shows what kind of restaurant this is. Stay away unless you're caucasian from this rude and racist restaurant.More
