  • Italian Restaurants

    Aside from Japanese food, my other fave is Italian food. Love pasta, lasagne, pizza, everything Italian. I am game to try new places. Any good recommendations? I will be trying out Keiko's recommendation, Tuscany at Pan Pac

    There are some of my love:
    1) Prego
    2) Pasta Fresca
    3) Pete's Place
    4) Spageddies
    5) California Kitchen Pizza
    6) Rialto (They have a stall at Amara and a restaurant at Killiney Rd which I frequent)

    I've tried Tuscany before. The service and food is not bad.

    My favourite Italian restaurant is Pete's Place! The Sunday Brunch is amazing! *hungry*

      1) Tuscany
      2) Al Forno
      3) Pete's Place
      4) Pasta Fresca
      5) Domvs
      6) Gaetano (sp?) - i the set lunches there. And they've got a huge selection of desserts. Meow, i know some people from your office go there also. too bad, this one closed when the chef left.

          Was at Club St. They usually go there for celebratory or farewell lunches. Given that so many of them have already left, i guess he must have gone there very often for farewell lunches.

              Gaetano has opened a new place at Robertson Quay. It's La Stella.

                if you go Pasta Fresca, word of advice: do NOT order the lasagne or cannelloni.

                worked there during one vacation period few years back and i swore off those 2 particular dishes. so unless they've revamped the cooking, they're off my list. the other pasta dishes are ok. i like the one with chili and also the carbonara. love the tiramisu and zabaglione too.

                not really adventurous re: italian, so i usually stick to Prego's.

                  What do you normally order when you're at an Italian place?

                  For me, I love white wine/ cream-based sauces with fettucine preferably if they have portobello mushrooms in them, anti-pasti platters, french onion soups, thin crispy pizza with button mushrooms, and cheese-stuffed ravioli! Mmmmm...yum yum..

                    1) Da Paulo, prefer the Holland V branch to the club street one
                    2) Al Forno
                    3) Porta-porta - This small Italian restuarant near Changi prison, its homely ambience cannot be found anywhere else!
                    4) Prego - menu changes with the chef, been there since 8-9years ago and prefer their old menus better
                    5) Pete's place - standard of their food keep sliding, getting disappointed
                    6) Cafe Modestoes - not bad for its price
                    7) Senso - great place but pricey.
                    La Forkette - loved their tiramisu


                    Should try Tuscany & Garibaldi? soon


                    I love pizza with artichokes, and I can't seem to find them in any restuarants these days.
                    Authentic tasting parma ham is also great!

                      I mostly dine at Pasta Fresca and for most of the time, its cream-based and the meal will end with their tiramisu
                      Have not have a chance to dine at their East Coast Beach outlet but i'm looking forward to it

                      Another one is at at Cuppage. So sorry, i forgotten the name but same stretch as The Rice Table. Their carborana is sooooo creamy?.. must be darn fattening too! But it?s delicious!

                      I saw recs for Al Forno on TV before and it really looks promising!

                        Gosh, we have the same taste except that I don't take french onion soup and I prefer fusilli to fettucine...

                        Cheese-stuffed ravioli is yummy!! I am craving for one now.....

                          yes, yes, second Pete's place, another place I like is Michelangelo's at Holland V, nice ambience, friendly staff, you feel like part of a family there.
                          When I go el cheapo, Pasta Mania's marinara is very yummy too.

                              Which outlet was this, Calypso? I tried the one at Orchard Cineleisure and it's quite badly done. Too watery and tasteless. The Al Funghi was nice, though. Haven't tasted a good cream-based one in a long time.

                              I usually like tomota-cum-cream sauces. I think Sketches is not even sub-standard but the chef's recs are all right. And these are the more expensive dishes :roll:

                              I also prefer the older Prego's. Sometimes, I think the higher-end restos don't necessarily serve up tastier pasta dishes. Previously, before Shidong (Club Street) re-opened, the kitchen served up gorgeous Aglio Olio with grilled chix breast.
