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!
I enjoyed my first experience here, the waiter was very knowledgeable on the menu. I love the variety of pasta you can have here and how some of them is house made. Food is TOP notch , though it is quite pricey. However not all the waiters will be as friendly. Some waitresses don't smile at all and you don't feel welcomed here
The food and staff members at Pasta Brava never disappoints. The staff members were courteous and attentive. I have been visiting this restaurant for many years.
The food is good and their service is excellent. Staff are friendly and fun. But one thing I hope they can improve on is to inform customer when they offered "still water". I thought it's just normal ice water but it ended up to be charged at $7.50 for a bottle of their so called "still water". Was quite shocked when I asked for the price. Other than that, I had a pleasant experience over there.
Had our wedding anniversary dinner at Pasta Brava. Loved the food, ambience and the service. Good recommendation of appetiser by one of the waiters. :)
Great food as always! It's always a pleasure to eat at Pasta Brava! I heartily recommend the squid ink risotto and the calamari for starters!
Pasta Brava's menu is very authentic with great combination of Italian dishes. Their pasta dishes never disappoint. Though they're a bit small in portion but understand this is the way the Italians have it as a Primi
The tables for 2ppl are placed very closely to each other - no privacy. Although we arrived early and asked for corner table, request was turned out down. As for food, the mushroom soup and portobello mushroom are good. But the vongole (linguine w/ clams) was dry and blend even I have asked for more wine sauce when ordering. Beef lagsane was not piping hot when served, taste wise was so so - very tomato taste. Overall dining experience was not as good as I expected and food wise was not as good as what reviews have said.
Overall, the food is awesome and the staff is very friendly. Although the location for me as a tourist is not in the downtown area, but the quality of food and the friendliness of staff far outweighs it. Will definitely come back and recommend to others.
Loved the quietness and ambience in the restaurant. The food was good and great service. We had a small issue as the table we reserved turned out to be on the level above. My elderly Mother couldn’t take the steps, but they managed to quickly set up a table for us downstairs despite being packed.
Quality food and nice ambience at reasonable prices. The sauteed portobello mushroom is pretty good. Carbonara is rich and tasty and the pasta was al dente. Service is pleasant even though there were a few misses on this occasion. Overall good, will visit again. Reservations recommended as the place is packed on Friday after 730pm.
