Great hip place with amazing food. Slightly expensive but definitely worth the money. One of me and my parents' favorite places to go for special occasions. Service is superb as well - everyone is friendly.

Good service and nice execution of classic Italian dishes. Veal Milanese was on-bone and mozarella was the perfect consistency. Wine list was extensive with a range of pricing.

I had my birthday celebration with my husband at Garibaldi on 6th Mar 2016, evening time. I have called to book for a corner sitting of two, at 7pm but I could not make it, reschedule my timing to 7.30pm and the receptionist was very friendly, changed my timing immediately. There is a complimentary car park valet for us and we do not need to find a parking lot for it. Requesting a for corner sitting was noted and we have our privacy dinner on that night. Complimentary bread was served to us but with only two selections. The dishes we had, Neapolitian style baked eggplant, cauliflower soup, New Zealand Lamb Tenderloin, lobster meat Gnocchi and a complimentary Tiramisu birthday cake surprised. Over all the dishes were great but i do not really like the Lobster with Gnocchi(wrapped in a dough skin) as i find it too floury and bland. The Tiramisu is great and the deco is beautiful. Thumb up for this dessert. Linda

Superb quality of ever-flowing food at brunch which they offer from 11.30am to 3pm on Sat and Sun. There's a set menu of items which they serve in order but you can ask for more of anything you like as and when your palate desires. Oysters were ocean fresh, plump and juicy. Loved all the pastas, especially the chickpea gnocchi in arrabiata sauce, and beef with truffled mash was pretty awesome too. Tad pricey at $78++ with soft drinks, and $108++ with beer, wine and proseco but well worth the quality. Be sure to eat and drink your fill!

Enjoyed the service. The Hokkaido scallops w truffles amd the dough w Parma ham were awesome starters. The risotto was abit undercooked, pasta was al dente. Generally the seafood , for both our risotto and pasta were not naturally 'sweet' and needed to depend on the sauces to flavour them. Dessert was Tiramisu. It was mainly cream, thus the alcohol and coffee taste was lacking. Food portions were generous. Other than the appetisers, the food was reasonably well executed but can be easily mimicked in most Italian restaurants or better cafes. Overall experience was still lovely and enjoyable.

It's my second time here within a month and still absolutely loves it! THe brunch menu had changed (according to them, they change every week), some dishes remained. Although I still like the previous menu that I had but this time is not bad too. I really love the quality food and the lovely atmosphere, polite waiters and waitresses, absolutely good service. This will be marked in my #1 place and I can foresee myself keeps coming back time to time.

Nothing is wrong with the restaurant: food, drinks, atmosphere, decor, service - all at very high level...ingredients are top notch, the staff knows how to explain, and the taste of the dishes is as promised: innovative yet classy, with very pleasant surprises..for myself, the location not being in a mall, hotel or residential, high-end neighborhood is a strength (it is actually almost next to the Raffles, not too bad, right..)..being in a 'rusty, gritty, traditional urban' environment which feels authentically Singaporean..

This restaurant was recommend by a business associate, it did not disappoint. We received a nice warm welcome, followed by a fantastic meal, so much so we returned again on our third night out of three in Singapore before we boarded our cruise liner. The second visit we met the owner who is totally passionate about his restaurant. 'His baby'!!! Wishing you continued success with a great restaurant!!! Doubt there is a better Italian in Singapore?

As always - a delightful experience at Garibaldi. Ordered executive chef set lunch with shaved summer truffles and mushrooms pasta. Yum! - That's the highlight. Accompanied with Proseco. Mains: Angus Beef that melts in my mouth. Accompanied by a red which was exceptional! The set lunch comes with chocolate mousse but I asked for a replacement of Panacotta which was Mama Mia! Perfect lunch on a holiday ! Thank you with 2 thumbs up.

Just celebrated my wife's birthday at the restaurant. Very attentive staff, food was very nice and very well presented. The ambience was very warm and charming. The restaurant also took the extra step to surprise the birthday girl with a complimentary treat with candle and all. Made it a very memorable dining experience. One of the nicest we had. Although the price is slightly on the high end, it's well worth it.

The service is excellent! The server took notice that my toddler is enjoying the free breadstix and he kept topping up for her without asking, a glass of drinking water with straw, after then he also gave a complimentary ice cream to my little one. The food overall I give it a 9/10! Even a normal pasta dish taste good. Overall is an excellent experience and I will definitely patronize again.

We had the cold angel hair for starter and veal chop and jumbo prawns for mains and all were good. Prawns were fresh too. Staff was kind enough to ask if we wanted them to cook something up for our 4yo first while we were deciding what to order. Though we find the kids portion pasta was more expensive than we expected (it cost only 4 bucks lesser than the normal portion). Staff could also be more attentive in refilling our water and wine.

First time at this place. Not aware of the operating hours. Arrived at about 2pm. Ordered the Sunday brunch. Wasn't fully aware that the kitchen closes at 230pm and instead of being able to enjoy the free flow of food items, I only managed to enjoy one portion. Restaurant closes at 3pm and no one informed us until at about 330pm when I tried to ask for one more glass of soft drink, the waiter did not even serve it to me saying the place is closed. However, when we left, I saw a lady together with her son seated at the seats nearer the entrance, with a glass of soft drink, clearly ordered after the supposed 'closing' time. Not an enjoyable experience and felt it was a disappointment for me and my friends who were visiting Sg from overseas

Food was good, but certainly not the best Italian I've eaten. The prosecco was better than I've expected though. Dessert was my favourite. Service was fine, but there was a fly in the restaurant (surprise!). Parking in and around the restaurant area was simply atrocious, however they provided valet, so it was much helpful. Try going public if you can. Chances of "revisiting" - 50/50, as it may not be too 'value for money' (it cost us >S$100 per head).

An Romantic Fine Italian Dining in the middle of Bugis - Me & my girlfriend loved this place. I was pretty worried when I saw this restaurant from the outside, i bet my gf was not expecting much too --> but when we were guided to the dinning area - boom, it was really romantic and elegant :) the food was great, and the service was attending too :) Suitable for special occasions such as romantic dates / celebrations.

Good food smothered in truffle... Go if you like truffle but ask them to go easy on the truffle if you're taste aren't stuck in 2013... Oh and what on earth have they done with the decor - dark wood, light wood laminate that looks like a food court noodle bar, and green paint and brightest lighting and a weird modern bar as you come in... Trying to be too much to too many unfortunately and at $200pp (average bottle of wine and 2 courses and a shared dessert) it's just become not special compared to its peers.

Good restaurant. Service is good. Food quality is good, solid but unspectacular. Overpriced for level of imagination in the food prep and presentation. Wine menu is very extensive (too extensive?) but yet has very few 'good value' options. We had a lovely evening the place is well presented and very comfortable but we would not go back as for the money paying there are much better options available. We would go back if it was better value for money or the level of the food increased significantly to match the pricing.

They try pretty hard to make our experience great. We had the "Chef Menu" and it had a good balance - flavor and textures. Dishes were well timed and the Mushroom Soup with Black Truffle was wonderful; surprisingly better than the Lobster Soup with Tarragon (which we wanted to try). Only minus point was that there were only 2 waitstaff for 6 tables - a bit stretched, but they were appropriately attentive.

Absolutely fantastic!! Everything from the food, to service to wine served was faultless! The food was amazing, and if it was possible to eat anymore I would defiantly had!! Ambience was lovely too, and would say the best brunch so far in Singapore! Well done to the team there, exceeded expectations!

The food was good - had the veal ravioli and Hokkaido scallops, which were divine. However, the service wasn't that amazing. It was good at the beginning. However towards the end, that's where it faltered. I had difficulty getting their attention for the bill (imagine that), one waiter shoved the dessert menu in our faces while we were mid-conversation, and the same guy reached his hand out in front of my friend's face without any warning to collect the dishes, so she had to move back to give him space. Seriously? And at such a nice dining environment. Utterly disappointing.

I liked a lot the desserts (tiramisu and zabaglione). Very fresh and creamy. Also the Ice cream was delicious. The antipasti were very good. Less the tagliata because of the gravy clearly not home made. Normally a tagliata is simply made with rosmary and a good olive oil. No need Gravy if the meat is good.

Fantastic service - they were attentive, yet never in your face. Food was of course, delizioso. The wines were fairly pricey, but the Pin we ordered was worth it. Burrata with parma ham was foodgasmic, and the freshly baked bread worth ditching your carb-free diet for.

I return often to Garibaldi's .... the food is excellent, the staff efficient and friendly, the ambience good. The noise level and table separation are such as to allow business conversations. I can only say good things about the restaurant and the team.

Food taste is excellent, our group of 8 ordered 6 variety from the menu-fantastic ! Service was wanting as I think they are 1 staff short. We had starters and the egg plant was well presented and tasted delicious. Desserts did not disappoint though portions were slightly small for dessert lovers.

Excellent service, staff attentive to details and knowledgable. Wine list might be a bit intimidating, suggest you follow their recommendations and you will not be disappointed. Somewhere to go back again even if it is to explore the endless wine cellar.

Excellent Italian food with a broad selection of appetizers and main courses. Excellent service; friendly atmosphere. The tables are set far enough apart and the noise level low enough to encourage conversations making it an excellent venue for business meals.

Food was delicious, service impeccable. We shared the main dishes and appetizers, but they split the dishes very nicely for 2. Portion was not too much as well. they were also very kind to give us complimentary dessert as it was me and my wife's wedding anniversary.

Service is excellent, the staff are attentive and professional. The food is great, the most memorable being the Fegaro D'Anatra and Zabaione Al Marsala E Frutti Di Bosco. The IPSO Pinot Grigio is a good pair to the pasta.

Scratched and broken walls next to our table upset me much. We hope for romantic atmosphere but these faults in interior couldn't let me feel romantic. I believe that restaurants with such prices like they have should not look like cheap cafe. The food was good enough. The service was rush and not too attentive.
