Had dinner here twice and ordered pizza take-out once; this place never disappoints. T bone steak was very nicely prepared to my preference and pizza is always done to perfection. Could not say the same about duck pasta dish (could be improved) but ambience is good, service staff are attentive and welcoming.

The Italian restaurant Enoteca L'Operetta, located at Boat Quay, served nice pizza. We got a nice table right at the edge of the dock. The meal ended with a really yummy Tirramizzu.

We got "Gnocchi al quattoro formaggi" witch was excellet, the sauce was delicious and the gnocchi were very well cooked. We also got "Spaghetti con nero di seppia", this dish it was just ok, the sauce didn't taste like squid ink and it was very salty. For dessert we got tiramisu and a chocolate lava cake, both were incredible.

We had an early dinner here on our last night in Singapore. We chose a table outside next to the river which was lovely although I also went inside the restaurant and the décor in there was great and would really suit a romantic dinner. We had the burrata and Parma ham salad which was delicious - we chose the... More

L'Operetta is located on walking street with many others restaurants, all of which are trying to encourage you to eat in theirs. I had a Margettia Pizza which was quite nice, especially the richness of the tomato sauce, and glass of red wine. Including tax and 10% service, which is added I paid 42 or $30. The service was good... More

We have not been to this restaurant for some time and after reading some negative reviews about the food, we were not too sure but we thought we should give it a try. The food was indeed very nice and taste authentic. It is exactly how food taste in Italy. The pasta with sea urchin was great. The deco inside... More

A very real feeling Italian restaurant along the quay by the Singapore River. They know how to cook Italiano with pomodoro, alio e olio e basilico. Wife had linguine al granchio crab and tomato pasta which was quite savory. I had a pizza napolitana. Thin crust with generous tomato sauce, anchovies, oregano and black olives. Luscious. At last a superior... More

I never had Hokkaido uni pasta before, so had to come over and try. The green salad with burrata was nice, the burrata tasted quite fresh. The uni pasta was an interesting combination, and not bad at all, but the uni could be of better quality. My husband had the crab linguine which was not all that good.

This was once a nice restaurant, with good food and spot-on service. All this has gone. I suspect the place changed owner (and chef) and the food now is terrible and for sure no longer authentic. Service has followed the same path, with unfriendly and inattentive waiter who certainly didn't add anything positive to the already quite negative food experience... More

The only thing that is good is that their pasta is "al dente". the flavor is not savory. waiters are a not friendly (they don't smile and they are very stiff). they seem to be uncomfortable when we asked questions about their menu.

Staying in The Quays

Neighbourhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
