Giardino boasts two locations in Singapore where it proudly flies the tricolored flag for Italian cuisine. This outpost, Giardino Italian Pizzeria, right by the water at Robertson Quay, is a great central location to enjoy the restaurant’s emphasis on sensational Italian dining. Many drop by for a refreshing drink, but most end up staying for the lavish Italian meals on offer. Either way, guests are treated to impeccable service from a team that knows their Italian culture and cuisine.
If you’ve had a long day exploring central Singapore, come by Giardino Italian Pizzeria down at Robertson Quay for a refreshing aperitivo or digestivo. A simple glass of Italian prosecco is a surefire way to combat the city’s humid heat, or take it up a notch with the prosecco Royal, adding a shot of creme de cassis to your bubbles. Bellinis, Martinis, and Campari are similarly popular ways to recharge. From there, its a leisurely waltz through Giardino’s ample selection of international draught and bottled beers, European wines, classic cocktails and a range of spirits and Italian liqueurs. Teetotalers can indulge in Italian coffee, while those who can’t resist are encouraged to go for the spirited Giardino coffee, with Tia Maria and Amaretto making for an intoxicating brew.
The main event is, of course, Giardino Italian Pizzeria’s food, including the wood-fired pizzas that always attract a crowd. The classics are all there, plus the delicious Siciliana with eggplant, capsicum, olives and anchovies, and the house Giardino, with buffalo mozzarella, rucola, and aged, air-dried bresaola beef. If you’re down for a classic multi-course Italian lunch or dinner, begin with the sumptuous burrata cheese with your choice of bresaola, Parma ham, Italian salami, or cherry tomatoes and avocado. Highlights from the pasta and main menus at this Italian restaurant at Robertson Quay include the cartoccio alla marinara, a dish of spaghetti tossed with seafood and baked in parchment paper (a must for seafood fans in Singapore), or the piquant pan-fried snapper with salsa, the porcini mushroom risotto, or the pan-roasted beef tenderloin on a bed of rocket with parmesan and a balsamic dressing.
