For those familiar with fine dining in Singapore, Forlino hardly needs an introduction. But introduce this luxurious Italian restaurant we must, as it’s unmissable for diners looking for a supreme dose of elegance in the domains of food, drink, and location. Situated in the One Fullerton building along Fullerton Road, guests seated in the restaurant’s chic interior are treated to magnificent views out over Marina Bay to the architectural landmark of the Marina Bay Sands hotel. Here, Chef Matteo’s artisanal eye and nose for detail combine to create a structured menu of Italian cuisine that is simply one of the city’s best.
When you begin your meal at Forlino, you’d be forgiven for thinking, if only for a moment, that you were seated in Venice overlooking the canali. You are, of course, in Singapore; but you are indeed treated to one of the city’s most stunning waterfront views from Forlino’s One Fullerton premises at Marina Bay. The menu is a gourmand’s dream tour of Italy, uniting the finest culinary influences from Northern Italy to the south of the country. Chef Matteo, with his contemporary eye and extensive Italian cooking experience, reflects Italy’s greatest gastronomic finds from the land and the sea on the menu.
Forlino’s house recommendations include the molecular burrata in gazpacho with caviar olive oil bubbles; a smooth rucola sorbet to cleanse the palate and the crispy pork prosciutto. Our pick of the pastas would have to be the linguini aglio e olio’ ai ricci di mare, linguine served with fresh, creamy sea urchins from Hokkaido and traditional Sardinian bottarga. For a perfect finish at this highlight of One Fullerton dining order Forlino’s signature tiramisu – light, fluffy, and packed with coffee liqueur flavour. Be sure to book ahead for dining at what is certainly one of Singapore’s best Italian restaurants.
Nice foods, a great view. We really did appreciate its service. Especially view of Marina Sands was tremendous. A lot of variety of foods was also appropriated.
Great view and service! Food was also exquisite and delicious. Nice environment for a good meal and experience with loved ones or meetings with friends.
Great food and very friendly staffs. Beautiful restaurant and location overlooking amazing landmarks. Very good place for special occasion or with the special someone. 5 Stars!
Excellent food, great view and attentive waiters. Was here last night for a friend’s birthday celebration and we were impressed with the impeccable service 👍🏼
Forlino is a great place to dine. The restaurant has such a spectacular view overseeing MBS and MerLion. Good food and excellent service. I had a wonderful evening dining with my business friend at Forlino. Love it.
Such a awesome Italian restaurant for my hubby and me to celebrate our anniversary at Forlino. Nice food with great view. Good service. We should come back again.
The food was great! But the Maître D was a little arrogant and had an air about him once we ordered a house wine instead of anything more expensive, we ordered a bottle none the less and I wasn't the only one to notice on my table. His attitude was uncalled for especially considering the restaurant was only a third full. Otherwise, it was a lovely dinner with great food, an amazing view and the perfect bottle of wine.
The atmosphere in the daytime during weekend brunch was nice and quiet. The food was fantastic - I loved pasta with real bacon. I put in a request via fb prior to my reservation time for the birthday cake, and I was expecting that it might be forgotten. They did serve a birthday mousse cake with nice decoration too. The waiters were friendly.
The view was gorgeous. The foie gras was to die for. The service was great and the food serving time was quick. The pork belly was bomb and so was the pasta. Dessert didn't end the dining experience with a bang though. But overall, it was really good and I would definitely go back there (and perhaps try other desserts too).
The service, ambience and food were excellent. My only slight criticism is that it was too cold. We were sat directly under the aircon although we did have the option to move if we wanted to but we were settled where we were so opted to remain there. We would definitely go back again. The views were stunning.
