My friend and i went for lunch. The food was fresh . Broccoli cream soup was delicious , though i would have preferred the cheese added to be optional. Vegetables were fresh with my tasty schnitzel. The service was very good. A lot of effort...was put in to small requests. We shared food so extra bowls etc were provided without fuss. I noticed outside the chairs were being thoroughly cleaned with soap and water, not just a damp cloth. The restaurant is nicely spaced out. Indoor and outdoor areas and toilets very clean. As were the staff uniforms and cover wear. the staff were very patient and accommodating. They also wear masks which i appreciated . The music thankfully was not loud so patrons were able to converse. I also, being older, appreciated a physical menu offered. Next time i will try their famous wood fire pizza’s. Lunch was relaxing, though it was a Tuesday and we went early so less patrons.More

1. Cosy, outdoor dining (we managed to get a table for four despite the fact that we didn’t make any reservation on a Saturday evening. To avoid disappointment, it is best that you make a booking in advance.) 2. Warm, attentive service by Jie Xin....My friends and I would like to compliment this service staff, Jie Xin, who is always wearing a smile and is highly professional. She puts us at ease from the time we step in till we are seated and is attentive to our requests throughout the dining duration. 3. Delicious food (fresh ingredients) and good wine. 4. Will return to dine again.More

Hi, Our experience from foamily dinner. We ordered: Cannelloni di melanzane - arrived cold. Beet salad - You expect a bit more interesting dish, and...arrived far after the other dishes, seriously.. Large pizza - Size that is no more then medium/small pizza. Pizza was good,...but why so small and charge high. So easy to make it a decent size pizza that make you feel that you value. It's OK restaurant, but that's it. Nowadays when you go out you expect a bit more. If it was positioned as casual Italian with casual prices it could get 4, but this is not the case of Forketta.More

We never even made it to the table- from the moment we entered we got the “elevator” look and since we did not arrive in our own Mercedes we were treated disrespectful! I have + 200 travel days a year so I do my fair...share of dining out. I have never tried anything so humiliating and keep in mind we are a family with a 3 year old and a 5 year old!!! We had made a reservation but there kept being issued and others had “reserved” the tables I mean I have a reservation and I believe it is in every one interest we get a more quiet table so we don’t “bother” any one but the untrained staff who clearly never worked in a restaurant before didn’t see this. Please do not even consider visiting this place it’s a disgrace!More

Dempsey is a lovely area for a nice evening meal. This restaurant has really nice food and a decent wine selection. The highlight was our server Arnel who was so friendly and provided too notch service. A fantastic server really makes the evening special.

First and foremost, the food is why we come here. The pizza dough is really nice and chewy. I would consider their pizza to be truly authentic! Side dish: Calamari is a must have! Service is great, although with the robotic tray holder moving around,...it does makes the ambience feel a bit... more robotic, lacking the human touch. Thirdly, the restaurant with high ceiling has a relaxing feel to it.More

I had booked a table for 4 for dinner. The table we got was okay. Menu is quite easy to follow and not complex. Their wine list is also quite okay, as we didn’t seem lost while ordering. The food we ordered was delicious and...really well made and presented. The quality of the pizza, the gnocchi gorgonzola was fabulous. The meat and cheese platters were also delicious. We had to skip dessert because we were super full with all the food & wine. We also saw delivery robots bringing food over to the table which was quite cool and a first experience for me in Singapore. The only thing that seemed to lack was service. Our waitress was okay, but not quite on the ball. She didn’t really know how much red wine she needs to pour in glasses and was rather impatient in clearing our dishes while we were still busy eating. This didn’t really spoil our evening as we really loved the food, conversations & the overall dining experience. We’ll surely be back here.More

Just been for a birthday meal at Forketta, Dempsey Hill. The food was mostly lovely, well cooked and well presented and the place itself was comfortable and well lit. The pork belly was delicious and the pasta nicely al dente. The exception was a rigatoni...ragout (pasta swapped easily to spagetti) which cloyingly coated the roof of the mouth and which was left mostly untouched. However, the service was very inattentive and our table felt ignored even in a half-empty room. Instead of actually serving food personally, meals arrived on a 'cat robot' - charming and fun for children but also a little sad when it was the most attentive waiter in the restaurant. Things got worse when a cockroach 🪳 appeared on the table apparently from a plate delivered by cat robot. The manager seemed fairly unconcerned about this explaining that this had never happened before and that as we're in a tropical country it's probably to be expected. Huh. (We were seated inside btw.) Overall, the fairly lovely food was let down by the underwhelming service. Quite disappointing given the good things I'd heard about this restaurant. We will not be returning.More

Had great service from all the wait staff. Very friendly maitre d'. Food was good - pizza crust was nice, little soggy in the middle, pasta a little low on flavour and sauce, the arancini were ok but a bit too much cheese and too...much olive oil in the accompanying tomato sauce. Had a very relaxed meal although quite expensive per dish and per drink with even appetisers $20ish - cost came to $135/head which I would have expected for a fine-dining rather than just a nice trattoria/pizzeria.More

Visited on a Thursday night. Not too busy. Really nice atmosphere. Service decent & friendly Pizza was excellent - great base and lovely tomato sauce. Can recommend Pasta - I almost sent it back but service was not around and didn’t want to embarrass anyone....Rigatoni cooked about 3 min too long. Way too soft, zero bite. Sauce just scooped on top of the white pasta, not tossed or anything. Feels like they just put the pasta out of the hot water and onto plate and then added a scoop full of sauce on top. Ragu was fine but lacked final touch. All in all - go for the pizza but give the pasta a miss Atmosphere is however absolutely great. Will go back but know what I’ll orderMore

Firstly even though we booked a table way in advance, they still place us right by the toilet, on a table of 8 when there was only 3 of us. We then tried to order our meal however as we were in such an inconvenient...place no one was looking out and so no one came over to take our order!! It took us 20 mins to finally find a waitor to take our order. Then came the worst part, the food came before the drinks!!! We literally just ordered a coke each but the pizza came before the drinks. The food was tasty however the service was appaling.More
