Ten Italian Restaurants in Singapore to fulfil your Pizza and Pasta cravings

Whether you're hankering after a quick slice of pizza, a hearty bowl of pasta or a more refined dining experience, you'll find plenty of choice when it comes to Italian cuisine in Singapore.


Number one on the list goes to Oso Ristorante. A traditional Chinese shophouse in the heart of Chinatown may seem like an odd choice for one of Singapore’s best-loved Italian restaurants, but the cozy atmosphere is perfect for tucking into your favourite pasta dishes and a large glass of red wine. Traditional shophouses in Chinatown are also home to two other choices on our list, Senso with its romantic courtyard and fine-dining and the more relaxed family atmosphere of No Menu.


Fine-dining is the name of the game for most Italian restaurants on our list. Garibaldi Italian Restaurant & Bar and the Lighthouse at the Fullerton Hotel head up the pack with their refined atmosphere, impeccable service and sumptuous cuisine. And if you’re looking for a view with your fine-dining Italian, then look no further than Forlino, with its sweeping vistas over Marina Bay and the city beyond, or try out Il Lido at Sentosa Golf Club, its outdoor decking the perfect setting for pre-dinner sunset views out to sea.
