For a cuisine so highly regarded around the world, it can be surprisingly difficult to find a truly authentic Italian restaurant outside of Italy. Luckily for us in Singapore, there’s Bottega Kitchen & More at Hong Kong Street to satisfy our desire for traditional pizzas, pastas, antipasti and more. Swing by this Clarke Quay gem for the best of Italian cooking made with the finest ingredients. But before you do that, we highly recommend that you reserve a table.
From its primary location on Tanjong Katong Road, Singapore’s beloved Italian grocer and gastro bar Bottega has opened a second and more central, downtown branch at Hong Kong Street, just steps away from Clarke Quay MRT station. While the highlight of its sister outlet lies in the well-stocked section of artisanal produce from Italy, Bottega Kitchen & More puts the focus back on its food by dishing out traditional Italian bites using the finest ingredients.
All pizzas at Bottega Kitchen & More come freshly prepared with a 100% soft wheat blend from Italy. Whether you indulge in a basic napoli or the four-cheese quattro formaggi, every bite you take is free of pesticides, preservatives and mycotoxins – keeping in line with the restaurant’s commitment to high-quality dining. For pastas, you’ll want to order the homemade ravioli stuffed with duck in butter and sage sauce, followed by a serving of panna cotta with raspberries for dessert. A wide selection of Italian beers and wine are available to quench your thirst, so wait no more and get down to Bottega Kitchen & More to discover the true flavours of Italy. Just make sure you reserve a table at this newly-minted hotspot in Singapore’s premiere nightlife district of Clarke Quay to avoid disappointment.
The place is tiny, 2 outdoor tables and some inside bar seating. Friendly staff, affordable food. Great place to mingle for some drinks after work, not that great for dinner due to the limited space.
We had a lunch today. Meals and coffees are very good. The staffs are friendly, it's a convenient and cozy place. Next time will go for dinner!
Loved the service, food and all our drinks :) Definitely gonna recommend it to other friends and go back there for a repeat session soon !
