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.
Ran late, but the restaurant patiently held my table for me. Pretty innovative & unique pasta dishes!
food is really italian quality and the owner is very friendly and localised. the restaurant is hidden away from the noise of the city, the ambience is great!
My first time here. The pasta dishes were Great! Pizza was fabulous. Never failed to disappoint us. Will come back again definitely! Boss is very friendly!
Service was good. The staff and the ambience was very heartwarming. Food portion is slightly less filling. Their mussels and clams is very good. Recommend to order Lava cake for the dessert.
The service was impeccable. Fabrizio, the owner, was attentive and really personable. The food was also very good. Pastas were rich and flavorful. The seafood squid ink ravioli was especially delightful. The scarmoza was yummy - a must try, the salad was a good foil to the rich food. The desserts were yummy. My favorite was the pannacotta and the lava cake was also good. My only complaint and the reason for a less than perfect score was the melanzane which was somewhat overcooked - with the eggplant tough and the cheese a little too stringy and chewy.
We ordered seafood pasta, vongole, spicy sausage pizza, parma ham pizza, lamb chops, Portobello mushroom with scallops. The food was generally good but the pasta was a tad dry. I would have rated it higher if they had served us butter for the bread. Apparently, butter will no longer be served!!! :(
Good Italian homemade food. Some of their dishes are very good. The Italian manager is vyer warm and nice. My first time there, not my last time for sure.
Delicious parmigiana and pizzas. White pizza with fresh buffala was outstanding. Complimentaryy baked and served with olive oil and balsamic was just perfect. Pasta servings were a little small.
Service is warm and friendly. Fabrizio and chef come with recommendations based on what we're in the mood for. I'm rarely disappointed when I come here.
Good food! chef even came out to serve the dishes and asked us how the food was. The scallops + mushroom combo is a must-try.
