More about Alba 1836, Singapore

When Matteo Trabaldo Togna and Cm Shih put their heads together, they realised they could combine not only their entrepreneurial nous but their love for good food and wine. After scouting the perfect, peaceful location along bucolic Duxton Hill in Singapore’s Tanjong Pagar, the pair, in collaboration with executive chef Alessandro Frau (chef and owner of the award-winning Acqua in Phuket), set about recruiting the best for what they dreamed would be one of Singapore’s finest Italian restaurants. With head chef Luca Piras, a native of Sardinia, and sommelier Andrea Ligas looking after the cuisine and wine cellar respectively, Alba 1836 was born – to immediate popular and critical acclaim.

Alba 1836’s signature dishes include a simple dish of pecorino cheese from Piras’ home island of Sardinia, grilled until golden brown, drizzled with chestnut honey and served with fresh figs. It’s perfect as a dessert or as an appetiser, opening the doors to dishes such as Alba’s Milanese-style red Sicilian prawns cooked in a crust of yellow polenta and served on a bed of black squid ink risotto with Stracchino cheese and Mediterranean sea urchin – a delicacy sure to please Singapore’s seafood-obsessed gourmets. There’s an incredible diversity of regional Italian cuisines represented on Alba’s menu, but we would certainly be remiss if we weren’t to mention the carefully curated wines, a portion of which greet diners as they stroll through Alba’s glassed entrance along Duxton Hill in Tanjong Pagar. Over 40 wines are available by the glass – not to mention those available by the bottle – all served from state-of-the-art Italian wine dispensers ensuring a fresh pour every time. In keeping with the authenticity on show at Alba, the wines are almost exclusively Italian, hand-picked by sommelier Ligas. Alba 1936 deserves all the hype it receives – undoubtedly a top-ranking Italian restaurant in Singapore.

Good venue for a corporate lunch meeting. The lunch set menu is priced very reasonably. We liked the wine the waiter recommended too. Will definitely visit again.

Service is great with a great private place to catch up with friends. Good advice on pairing of wines with food. My friends have enjoyed the hot chocolate cake, a must for desert. Recommend cold cuts for starters.

Highly personal service. Great atmosphere and delightful food. I'd recommend this restaurant for both dates and business dinners. The staff over-did it on the confirmation of our reservation (called me 4 times to confirm), but aside from that, everything was perfect.

For starters. we ordered Tajima Wagyu beef carpaccio. For mains, we had the Home made fresh tagliolini with Maine lobster, Sicilian tomatoes and fresh oregano and the Grilled USA beef prime grade certified black angus rib eye (380Gr) served with home made fried potatoes. The ribeye was to die for! Not cheap at $60 but it was a large piece and oh so good and tender and flavourful. We would come back again just for the steak! Service was average and the table cloths were wet (probably just had been sprayed). They had to be changed after we highlighted to the staff.

Food was good especially the starters. For mains, I had the lamb loin. I didn't find it great as the sides that is to compliment the meat was disappointing and the meat itself was just bland, so it may have needed to be paired differently. My friends were happy with their food. Service was good but I was disappointed when they wrongly charged us twice the amount of wine we had. They adjusted it back out once we told them.

The Owner Matthew was awfully pleasant and chatty while we were in wait for our appetizer to kick off our Christmas eve dinner, as well as knowledgeable in both the menu and wine when I requested for his recommendations. The restaurant was chic and the staff were smiley and attentive. Definitely a restaurant with the service that deserves the dollars for a return :)

Went to Alba 1836 for Valentines Day dinner. We've been before and were previously happy with the food and service. Nothing much has changed. Food and service all very good - overall a very nice evening

Great food, lovely setting, impeccable service. We tried the seven course tasting menu and every one was good but our favorites were the two pasta dishes. We will definitely be going there again and will recommend it to friends.
