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.
Service and ambience was really good, will come back again in the future
Food is ok. Atmosphere is great with good view of MBS and Merlion. Staff are friendly. Overall we have an enjoyable dining experience at Forlino.
Value for money with Burple Beyond. Also has an excellent view of Marina Bay. Good date spot.
