Pasta Brava is the definition of good pasta. It’s been on the block down Tanjong Pagar’s Craig Road for over two decades now, and this family-run Italian restaurant in Singapore shows no signs of slowing down, except to offer guests attentive service and a relaxed, intimate and all-Italian dining experience. Pasta Brava ‘s homely restaurant is split over two levels, necessary when the weekend’s hordes of diners clamour for tables – this is one of the city’s most beloved Italian joints, a restaurant whose classically-structured menu is as seasonal and colourful as those you find back in the old country.
In Italy, a meal begins at the beginning, and is liable to continue for a good few hours. Relaxed, lugubrious and epicurean is the tempo and mood that presides over Pasta Brava’s Craig Road restaurant, a neighbourhood ristorante well known to Tanjong Pagar locals and aficionados of Italian cuisine from across Singapore. Start naturally, naturally, with Pasta Brava’s fresh anitipasti platters – olives and grilled vegetables, cold cuts and cheeses, fresh baked Italian breads – a sociable way to share in the beginning of an authentic Italian meal with family and friends.
Salads are next, some of which can suffice as a fresh and healthful meal all in themselves, others best picked at alongside Pasta Brava’s delicious and generously apportioned pasta and risotto dishes and main courses of meat, fish and vegetables. Making the most of Singapore’s easy access to a wealth of seafood, we recommend the mixed seafood linguine regina del mare, with prawns, clams, scallops, squid and crayfish. Other delectable maritime delights can be found in the simple prawns sauteed in butter and brandy with plenty of garlic and parsley, or the oven-baked scallops in a variation on the French bechamel. Squid ink spaghetti with vongole, clams, is another striking addition to this Tanjong Pagar Italian restaurant’s offering. As always with Italian restaurants in Singapore, we like to recommend, if we can, the house tiramisu as an endgame-measure of the overall dining experience. Here we can confidently declare, bravo, Pasta Brava!
Wonderful food and cosy ambience as always! No question on all the awards hanging on their walls. Service could've been friendlier, but was definitely efficient.
An old favorite for us having lived in Tanjong Pagar before. Home style Italian cooking at its best. The old shophouse gives a nice ambiance, and you an count on great service.
Best italian restaurant in SG! Always love the foods and the service here. Feel like eating homecook in a nice Ambient. Their dessert is lovely too :)
2nd time visit, order favourite pasta STRACCI AI GAMBERI E CAPESANTE, soup base pasta, and the lamb ribs is not bad, friendly staff, nice environment
The food at Pasta Brava is always comforting and on point. I had the Pasta Special which was a squid ink tagliatelle with scallops in a tomato basil sauce. Delicious! But service doesn't seem as good as i remember. We made a reservation for 6 at 7.30, but half of us arrive early at about 7.05. We ordered a bottle of wine and a starter while waiting for our friends to arrive. At 7.35, one of the wait staff asked if our friends would be arriving soon - were they trying to chase us away or hurry us along? In any event, it was only 5 minutes after our reservation timing. I was perplexed, but left happy after my satisfying meal.
We have been going to Pasta Brava whenever we are in Singapore for at least the last decade. It is such a welcoming restaurant and the food is always tasty and well presented. It has a really authentic atmosphere, a good, well priced wine list and very attentive staff. A guide to how nice it is can be seen by the clientele who are predominately locals and ex pats. If tourists discovered it then it would be impossible to get in without booking well ahead. If you like Italian food then I would thoroughly recommend paying a visit.
Very good service - my request that I put on Quandoo was conveyed to the staff in Pasta Brava. We had the Prosciutto con melone as an appetizer, Stracci Al Gamberi Homemade pasta and the and the Ravioli Con Carne. The ambience was very authentic and the menu brought me back to Italy. The food was good pasta for Singapore, but doesn't even come close to the offerings in Italy. That said, don't miss the tiramisu :)
We booked the restaurant using your app but when we got there it was closed, it did not mention this on the app "why"??? not happy very happy experience as we were looking forward to having food hear as we had heard from friends it was a good place to eat. I still wish to eat at Pasta Brava so hopefully Quandoo can resolve this issue for the next time we book.
Extremely impressed with the service staff and food. Truly authentic gelato, just like the ones I had in Italy. My daughter requested for apple juice but they don't have that on the menu. The service staff actually went out to get it for her. Really enjoyed my dinner at Pasta Brava. Will definitely look forward to going back.
Have always heard good things about Pasta Brava, and having finally tried it ourselves, we concur. We had 2 starters, 1 home made pasta, and 1 dessert, all of which were good. Special mention to the starters.. Although they set the expectation really high for what was to come next. In a nutshell, lovely food, but more warmth from the service staff would make it an even better experience.
