The three-course business lunch (SGD38++) is totally worth the time and the money. We were served warm and fresh homemade focaccia bread soon as we were seated. I have the pea soup, the red mullet and the cheese board. All superbly prepared and plated. The service was attentive and seemed to great pride in their offerings. The decor was a tad old-fashioned for me but the view of the bay more than made up for it. I'd highly recommend this place for a business lunch or a romantic meal. And kids are welcome.

Enjoyed a very nice evening with a dinner for two at Forlino. Very scenic with our table just next to the wide window with full view of the Marina Bay area. The service was good, with the service crew attentive and friendly.

We ordered a Classic Set and a Steak Duet. The quantity was just right for the two of us, as we were not too hungry. As for quality, I would say generally it was pretty good, although the cod fish dish was a bit "confusing" for us as we felt it had too many flavours competing for our taste buds.

A nice complementary anniversary and birthday chocolate dessert was specially presented to us, which was very thoughtful and we really appreciated it.

Overall, nice enjoyable experience.

The food at this place was a joke. The carbonara tasted like mac & cheese, the swordfish was served in two fake looking patties. One of the worst Italian dining experiences in Singapore. The best things were uncooked such as the beef carpaccio and all the aged Parmagiano. Save your money and go to one of the many excellent Italian restaurants on the island.

The service and setting, however, were excellent. Great views of the Bay.

We also had to walk through a long and odd entryway to arrive in the restaurant.

The food at Forlino is very tasty and refined, with a great view on the Marina Bay Sands. Do ask for a table close to the window it's worth it !
The service is impecable, with a lot of details on the food and the preparation, which are very useful and interesting.
We really enjoyed our dinner there, and you will too!

It was a surprised birthday dinner treat and Forlino was chosen as it was an ideal location facing the marina.
We planned to just picked the ala carte menu but decided to try their set menu specially prepared for the week in conjunction with bank credit card promotion. A seven course fine dinning meal as a fraction of the cost... And we were not disappointed.
The dishes were well prepared and cooked and to make the whole dining experience great, we had an enthusiastic service staff who took enough care to explained the dishes we consumed. Every details were explained and each mouthful was gastronomic experience of both taste and senses.
Thanks to the chefs and Forlino for coming out a great collaboration with the bank to give us this experience. Kudos!
