Mount Etna is both timeless and ever-changing: it’s a volcano, as old as Italy itself, but also one that keeps erupting, and thus is in constant flux. Without wanting to extend the metaphor a touch to far, the menu at Etna Italian Restaurant in Duxton, right at the heart of Singapore’s dining scene on Duxton Road in Tanjong Pagar takes in the classics of Italian cuisine, while also maintaining a contemporary edge. They take trattoria traits and reimagine them then the modern image of Singapore, as well as offering a huge range of wines that are among the best found anywhere in the city. Take a train out to Outram Park or Tanjong Pagar on the MTR and try Etna out: just remember to book a table; heaven forbid they fill up too quickly and you end up hungry and disappointed.
The traditions of Italian cooking are as old as the country itself, and debate back even further, into the days of the Romans, Etruscans and the ancient inhabitants of the peninsula. Mount Etna, the perennially-explosive volcano on the island of Sicily, is older than the lot, and at Etna Italian Restaurant on Duxton Road in Singapore stands in the shadow of all this history. They offer an authentic taste of Italy in Duxton, with a menu that encapsulates all that is impressive about the food of the bel paese. Let us talk you through a few of the favourites that you can expect to encounter when you make an appearance at Etna Italian Restaurant in Singapore.
Any great Italian restaurant in Singapore is going to need a huge starter selection, and Etna doesn’t let the side down in that regard. There are classics like beef carpaccio and calamari, as well as soups and salads. Move on from these to a pasta course – we’d go for the linguine al Granchio, with fresh flower crab in a crabmeat sauce – and then a meat or fish dish: stracotto, 48 hour slow-cooked beef ribs with spinach and mushroom, or seared yellowfin tuna with broccoli and red onion. There are pizzas too – both bianche, without tomato, and rosse, with sauce – and much more besides. Book a table and take a trip to Etna Italian Restaurant on Duxton Road for as good an Italian meal in Singapore as you’ll find anywhere.
