Dining with children
Fratini is generally not conducive for dining with babies and young children – kids’ menus are available during the week, but not for Friday and Saturday dinner sittings, during which children aged 8 or above must take the usual set menu – sharing of meals is prohibited. For dinner bookings on Friday and Saturday, the eve of public holidays and special holidays, each child will be charged as an adult. There are no baby chairs and no room for prams.
Second visit to the restaurant and it was even better this time around. The food was superb and the service excellent. Starter was cold meats and cheese platter followed by a grilled seafood platter that was fresh and perfectly done. Next there was a freshly made pasta with cherry tomatoes in light cream sauce which was absolutely delicious. This was followed by a very tasty braised pork stew done Italian style and the final main was a pair of grilled steaks. The steaks were done medium and very tender but unfortunately was unable to finish more than a few slices as already reaching the limit. Dessert was tiramisu and panettone which were both excellent. The tiramisu was the very light and fluffy traditional cake style compared to the lazier crème versions that a lot of places like to serve presently. Overall a great special New Year's omakase menu. Highly recommended for foodies.
The best Italian restaurant in Singapore. Probably the best in SE Asia. An excellent hostess who’s knowledge about wines is encyclopaedic. The food of course is beyond compare.
It was a really nice experience for our family outing. We were there to celebrate my Mum's birthday, and just wanted to try something different from the usual spicy Chinese food that my Mum likes. We had a really good time, and felt pampered by the attention of the few waitresses serving us with their big smiles. When the bill came, my daughter says it was worth it.
It was 2nd time dinner in this place, and it still make my family happy in terms of food, serving, and quite comfortable place. Will visit again
Made our lunch reservation almost a month before. We arrived at Fratini just after 12.30pm and the restaurant was bustling with tables of excited customers. I'd recommend making a reservation in advance to not be disappointed. I reckon it's a full house almost every lunch and dinner. We were shown to our table, where our waitress informed us there was no menu and the food was based on what was fresh at the market that day. The waitress asked for our food preferences and any allergies - no beef and less dairy for us and off she went to fetch us our appetisers. The appetisers were served on a long wooden board and each from a different part of Italy. The scallop with creamy bacon sauce was satisfying to say the least. Also enjoyed the salmon with minced mushrooms. The next course was pork (shaped into little nuggets) and sweet potato mash. Delicious! This course was followed by fish with lemon sauce, slices of lamb with a potato wedge (soooo good!) and then my favourite dish of all.... truffle pasta!! A big pan of hot creamy pasta was served with black truffle cooked al dente in a cream base. Every bite was a treat! We ended the meal with 3 little desserts, earl grey pana cotta, tiramisu and chocolate salami? Each one the perfect size and topped off with strong fragrant black coffee. The lunch set is priced at $45++ per person. We both had a glass of white wine ($16) and a black coffee at the end ($5) which brought the bill to about under $130. Decent for the quality, variety and gastronomical experience. I would definitely recommend this place! Delicious food and friendly staff! The young lady that served us was extremely accommodating and chatted with us about our trip to Singapore. I understand that the menu differs day to day and you never know what you're going to get! Guess that makes this little treasure of a place even more special!
We decided to book based on the reviews that we read. Right from the moment that we walked in, we knew that we were going to have a great evening. We were seated to our table immediately and then Chomel explained the concept to us, and checked with us as to any food we don't eat / allergies. Over the following 2 hours we were delighted by the quality of the food and the enthusiastic and knowledgeable staff that looked after us. There were 3 or 4 servers who looked after us during the evening, and each knew about the dishes that they were bringing and clearly had a passion for what they do. Each course was just about the right size - enough food to appreciate the flavours and the cooking, but not too much so that we were full after the first few dishes. By the time we were finished, we had experienced a host of meat and fish dished, complemented with a variety of vegetables and some perfectly cooked pasta. The lack of menu made for a more interesting evening, as we didn't know what to expect next. But we were happy to sit back and let the team take care of us, and we were certainly not disappointed. We will be returning in a few weeks with our family to share the experience. We can't wait to see what's in store for us next time.
I'd never been to a restaurant where patrons cannot choose their own dinners, but something told me there was a reason this was so. I was right. The 6 course meal was extraordinary. The cold appetizers were like mini explosions of taste. The hot appetizers were delicious. I never cared for lamb until I tasted it at La Trattoria. The pasta was superb and cooked just right. The desserts were heavenly. If you enjoy being pampered and sampling a wide array of tasty food, perfectly paired with wines, try Fratini La Trattoria.
As always, Fratini La Trattoria was superb. That was the fourth or fifth time I’ve been and every single time the food has been different. Great dishes this time around we’re the slipper lobster and pesto-crusted lamb chops. As ever, the pastas were sublime. This was the first time I’d tried the beef with tomato base (usually I’d recommend the brown sauce) and it was delicious, as was the seafood aglio e olio. The standout dessert was the white chocolate. Had never had that one before. Cannot recommend this place enough!
We really enjoyed our experience at Fratini La Trattoria. It was fun to be surprised with every course. The food very good with a few courses in the outstanding category. The wine pairings were excellent. We especially liked interacting with the chef/owner who came to our table several times. He is very charming. The service by the rest of the waitstaff was perfect. It was a special occasion meal (read: fairly expensive) but well worth the experience.
My wife and I went for an anniversary meal and it was excellent. From the minute we entered the restaurant we knew it would be a place we will visit time and time again whilst we are staying in Singapore. The appearance and ambience of the restaurant was professional but very welcoming we were shown to our table and shortly afterwards the chef came and introduced himself, he enquired as to our food and taste preferences which was easy for my tastes but a little more difficult for my wife who does not eat meat, shellfish or cheese. After taking this information away with him the chef produced totally different meals for us which were excellent both in presentation and taste and the attention to detail was second to none. The staff maintained a good rapport with clientele and each other ensuring a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.
