We came right after they were first recognised with the Michelin 1-Star. We enjoyed the food. We came back on a weekday in November. And things have changed. Chef Beppe was no longer cooking most of the dishes and was essentially supervising and training the other Chef. They also ran of their pork cheek specialty. Good to know they have to limit their prep as it has to be freshly prepared.

Service was still very good though we almost got shocked when we realised that the fresh truffle pasta order was as expensive the Surprise Menu! Chef Beppe was kind enough to let us know we may have over ordered. He joked that we were paying for the truffle and the pasta was free. It was outstanding but not something I would splurge on.

Still loved the special century old traditional bread. The steak was cooked tenderly though not as special as the pork cheek specialty. Dessert were visual delight and was a great way to cap the meal.

We will come back but will pre-order the pork cheek and also hope Chef Beppe is healing the kitchen. Nothing like the master Chef cooking vs. supervising!

Joint family and friends for a wedding party in this roof top place and enjoyed the evening, the excellent food and the great wine and drink selection very much. Very nice, friendly and professional service made the evening a great success. Very good!

We had the set lunch at Braci ($55++). The food was very good. Love the Tagliolini with truffles. The Romanesco with Burrata cheese was also very good. The cheese was almost cream like in texture, not the standard sticky Burrata one finds elsewhere. The Italian Sea Bass was also very good with a crispy skin over the grill snapper. The quantity of fish looked small but thankfully we were full after dessert. The dessert was Caramel Chocolate Parfait which was beautifully done. To finish off we had a choice of coffees and teas. Giving a 3 for atmosphere as the room became slightly warm by the end of our meal due to the open kitchen.

The team treats you like a friend visiting their home with warmth and attentive service. I was at a table with a lovely view of the Singapore River and the whole downtown landscape. The best part about eating here is being treated to warm bread made in the tradition of the chef’s hometown and other produce that reminds one that we are dining in an Italian restaurant after all. So all the expensive ingredients like uni just lets us feel we are paying for value. But we are actually looking to be surprised and excited by good culinary skills.

Love their bread and homemade pasta. Food is generally great. The place is rather warm cos it's small and an open kitchen concept. My husband was perspiring throughout.
