Etna Italian Restaurant
Starting out as a humble trattoria in 2006, Etna has since become a fully fledged restaurant that both locals and tourists love. Named after the iconic Italian volcano, ETNA is also a clever acronym for the restaurant’s dedication to its customers – Every Table Needs Attention.
You can enjoy an upmarket and sophisticated atmosphere while tucking into Italian and Mediterranean inspired dishes. Washed down with a few glasses of the exceptional wine on offer, naturally.
Pasta Brava is not only one of the oldest Italian restaurants in Singapore, but a clear addition to this list as it’s also one of the city-state’s favourites. This multi-level restaurant boasts a bold interior of Italian and Asian decor, which blend together to create one of the most visually stunning restaurants on the list. The upstairs bar is a restored Chinese medical cabinet while the walls are filled with artwork from all over the world. Most of the art is also available for purchase.
The atmosphere is charming and inviting and the food has been winning over customers for years. What’s not to love?! If you’re in Tanjong Pagar and are looking for something special, you won’t regret dining at Pasta Brava.
Al Forno East Coast
Originally established in 1995, Al Forno East Coast is truly passionate about quality food. You can expect to find all the classics here, including tradition wood-fired pizzas that are to die for.
