Capri is a long way from Singapore – though they are both islands off a larger mainland – but if you’re looking to experience some of the best that the Italian island has to offer then you’re in luck. Capri Trattoria & Pizzeria on Binjai Park in Bukit Timah are as good an example of Italian cooking as you’re likely to find in Singapore, with a menu that takes in starters such as antipasti, soups and seafood, salads, risotto and pasta dishes and a huge range of meat and fish mains that are sure to delight. Take the MTR to King Albert Park and then wander back along Dunearn Road before turning onto Binjai Park to pay Capri Trattoria & Pizzeria, one of the best Italian restaurants in Singapore. Book a table, though, as they do get crowded on occasion.
There are not many superficial links between the two islands of Singapore and Capri. While the island state in Asia is a similarly short distance off the coast of Malaysia as the Italian isle is from the mainland city of Naples, Capri is a quiet – hordes of tourists aside – and scenic rural idyll, whereas Singapore is one of the most densely populated and architecturally spectacular places on earth. The cuisine is notably different as well, but if you’re in SG and you want a taste of authentic Italian seafood specialities, then you can head on over to Capri Trattoria & Pizzeria on Binjai Park in Bukit Timah. Pay them a visit and expect to see on of the best Italian restaurant menus found anywhere in the city – let us let you in on a few of the secrets that of their kitchen.
You can find Capri Trattoria & Pizzeria by hopping the train up to King Albert Park on Dunearn Road. First up, they’ll bring you a starter, and you’re going to want a proper Italian classic, such as the warm prawns and scallops with Mediterranean herbs or the carpaccio di pesce, raw fish in a lemon sauce. Pasta traditionally follows, and we’d tip you in the direction of the linguine with crab meat or the fettuccine with homemade sausages, before picking up one the of the main events from the meat and fish menu. There is always the fish of the day – or a Livorno style fish stew, a peasant favourite from the Tuscan coast – or a Milanese veal chop, flattened, breaded and fried. We could go on, but instead we’ll point you towards Bukit Timah Road and Capri Trattoria & Pizzeria, and kindly remind you to reserve your table ahead of time as they do get crowded on occasion.
