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!
We had a wonderful time. We both enjoyed the food as it was delicious. Also, the ambiance was great! We would definitely revisit and try out the regular menu.
Attentive service without overcrowding you. We were given a free slice of cakes because the waiter serving us noticed that it was our friend's birthday! What a pleasant surprise!
excellent dishes, professional service. The interior decor of the restaurant made the atmosphere very enjoyable. Definitely a place that i will re-visit when i crave for italian cuisine again.
Very attentive service. Very warm and willing to attend to our needs. Even provided us with a free birthday cake which was very kind of them to do so
My first time experience was overall alright. The restaurant seemed a little crowded -- more than I expected. Food was generally fair (nothing to rave about) but I would have liked to taste the outstanding dishes. The food was value for money. victor
Had a birthday celebration for our daughter. Ordered the usual cypress salad which didn't disappoint. The pan fried duck liver was also amazing. However, the lasagna was dry and did not live up to standard. Slightly disappointed as our previous visits were good.
The service was not as good as it used to be. The waiters were not attentive to refill our glass of water. It took me a while to get to the attention to refill them granted that it was not crowded and busy. Also, they did not serve the bread while we were waiting for the food.
Nice, cosy and casual place to enjoy a hearty Italian meal with a small group of friends or bring a date. The place has a more intimate setting, with good service and tasty food.
Location was easy to find as restaurant is by the road side. Excellent home made pasta with yummy sauce. Chocolate lava cake has plenty of 'chocolate lava' in it. Friendly staff and nice ambiance.
Good service and good food. Unfortunately the cheese platter which we ordered for dessert was disappointing. We found it less quality and quantity compared to the other dishes which we have enjoyed so much.
