Contemporary southern Italian cuisine finds its way to the heart of the River Valley district at Grissini, a restaurant and grill at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront on Havelock Road. Helmed by Head Chef Mirko Vinc, Grissini presents a modern take on classic Italian pizzas, pastas, premium meats and seafood from its stylish premises right by the edge of the Singapore River.
Start off with Grissini’s fine selection of cold cuts, in which you’ll find the Iberico de cebo and mortadella, among many others.

Don’t miss out on the meats here – baked and grilled in a special Josper oven to juicy perfection – nor any of the delectable desserts, such as the best-selling limoncello tiramisu. Give your taste buds the treat they deserve at this River Valley gem in central Singapore. Just remember to book a table ahead of your visit to avoid disappointment.
Excellent food and service. Had the sea bass and beef tenderloin. The lobster pasta is good too. Nice ambience and view too. Will go back again.
The food was good and unusual. Pricing was on the high side but that is expected from a hotel restaurant. Some guest feedback that the pasta was not done right
Had dinner with my wife. Nice relaxing atmosphere. The salmon burratini we shared as a starter was good but not outstanding. Same with my grilled sea bass which i chose because they ran out of chicken. My wife’s veal cheek was excellent. Tender, succulent and a generous portion. Service was excellent. All the wait stafff were polite, obliging and extremely helpful. Special mention to the manager, Selina, who made he evening particulars Ryo enjoyable. Will be back.
