With the atmosphere of a wine bar and culinary quality of a fine Italian restaurant, iO Italian Osteria is something special in Singapore. Housed inside the HillV2 shopping mall on Hillview Rise but feeling more like an elegant farmhouse overlooking the Tuscan hills, iO Italian Osteria in Bukit Batok nails the ambience with a balance of traditional and contemporary design elements. Still, what really sets this Italian eatery apart from others is of course the food, curated by renowned chef Anna Borrasi and presented in a style both rustic and refined.
iO Italian Osteria specialises in small plates and shared platters designed to be enjoyed in good company over some good drinks, like seared calamari, angus beef carpaccio, authentic Italian street-food treats or boards of assorted cold cuts, cheeses and ever-changing chef’s specialties. If you’re after something heartier, though, you’re in good hands here in Bukit Batok (close to both Hillview and Cashew MRT stations), because iO Italian Osteria offer a broad range of traditional pastas (some of them hard to come by otherwise in Singapore, like the orecchiette with special Italian pork sausage and saffron sauce), spicy roasted farmhouse chicken, beer-braised beef and a choice of irresistible Italian desserts like house-made gelato or pistachio tiramisu.
Great appetisers and really value for money! Great for couples or friends and family (:
Homemade pasta with shrimp, truffles homemade bread, prochetta, and a deep fried seafood basket. All worth the try! Sauces were great.
Fantastic as always! Love the place! Will come again for sure.
