With one foot firmly in Italian tradition, another in contemporary Japanese cuisine and – somehow – a third foot in homely comforts and casual dining like a friendly bar, PocoLoco Microbrewery is something unique in Singapore. Adding a superb selection of ales and drinks to their delicious Italian food famous from their other locations around the city, PocoLoco Microbrwery in the Snow City Building on Jurong Town Hall Road (in Jurong, of course) puts the best foot forward – whether it’s one of those three mentioned above or even a fourth.
It’s hard to believe when you look at the prices, but PocoLoco Microbrewery offers some of the finest Italian dining you can find anywhere in Singapore. However, you will not find any of the fluff, fuss or pretentious conventions of other fine-dining Italian restaurants, because PocoLoco in Jurong (and their other heartland locations, for that matter) are all about keeping it casual. That means friendly but non-invasive service, a warm, vibrant atmosphere, and sociable shared plates rather than single-serve multi-course menus. Given its name, PocoLoco is of course also an excellent place to pick up a cold brew, but above all it’s the food that shines here inside the Snow City Building on Jurong Town Hall Road.
If you thought you knew what Italian fine dining looked like in Singapore, think again. PocoLoco Microbrewery serve up dishes as exquisite and beautifully presented as the city’s swankier spots, but they have the feel of a hearty meal at Nonna’s, too. Try PocoLoco Microbrewery’s incredible handmade seaweed pasta with crayfish or pork collar with garlic and shallots to get a traditional Italian fix, or delve into their intriguing fusion creations like the Japanese-Italian inspired squid-ink tagliolini with Japanese mentaiko sauce. The menu stretches from enticing antipasto to decadent desserts, and whoever you’re with everybody will be impressed by PocoLoco Microbrewery in the Snow City Building on Jurong Town Hall Road.
Good food. Pasta was done well and the ambience was rather nice. Beer is recommended. Tasted great! Enjoyed my time there. Will be back for sure.
Probably one of the worth-for-money italian dining places in the west. The food is really good and the portions are reasonable. The quality of the food is comparable to those in Holland V. Do make a reservation before going as they get really crowded after 7pm.
A quiet restaurant with great staff. Food is good with reasonable prices. The craft beer goes well with the food. The beef tenderloin and tiramisu suited our taste. Did not have to wait long for the food as the lunch crowd was thin.
it was a nice plan to dine with family. i don't like the fact that the outdoors dining experience is a very unsafe one because you can't be sure if its not going to rain.
Atmosphere was very causal but a bit dark as there were no windows. Food was very good, paste al dente and very tasty. Main courses well cooked and good portions. I know it's a microbrewery but beer is usually good as a first drink, wines go better with food, just a few to choose from would be nice. Food was really very good and great value too. Didn't quite like the tiramisu, sponge fingers needed to be soaked longer, too hard and too sweet. Not enough mascarpone cheese too. Was too full to try the other desserts.
Nice and cosy environment to have dinner and chill out. First time at this outlet after having tried the AMK one. Would like to try the outdoor seats next time. The starters - mushroom and scallops were good, although more scallops would be preferred! The bottle of red wine is also very affordable. Would come back to try the beer.
The food wasn't bad but the cheap prices are indeed too good to be true. The reason I say this is that the reason the prices are so cheap is because they totally skimp on the portion of ingredients to the point where its just a huge ripoff. I.e scallops $12 - we literally got 2 scallops and not even big ones. Saffron pasta had 1 prawn and a couple clams. Also I need to add that the seafood quality wasn't good. I'd go on but you get the point. Unless you're really on a budget theres no reason to eat here cause although you pay less, you end up losing on the value because of the sub par portioning and quality. Additional reason for the low review are as follows: -its a microbrewery that has a very limited selection of beers that aren't that good -service wasn't attentive -very out of the way location Overall its a shame because the place would be great if they stopped cutting corners in order to live up to their "cheap" prices
The service to take order was a bit slow as there is a lot of customer and only few staff on floor. However, we are having a great time to meet up with a group of friends there. All of us enjoying the food and atmosphere. We love the lava cake with ice cream, pasta of the day and the house beer.
Made a reservation to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. The service was great - they gave us a tiramisu cake on the house which was delicious. Staff are friendly and food is served fast. Loved their beer and their truffle risotto!!!
Food is good just that portion is a bit small. Overall good place with good food :) Service can be improve as staff are all busy serving customers that we have to walk to the counter ourselves to fasten
