Dear diners, please be aware that this restaurant is closed for the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month. Thank you.
A restaurant touting a curious fusion of Italian and Japanese cuisines should come as no surprise to Singapore’s diners, acclimatised as they are to the city’s crossroads approach to global gastronomy. Ristorante Takada is leading the charge from its hideout among the new clutch of shops and restaurants in the Alexis condominium near Queenstown station, offering a considered approach to what many would deem two incompatible international styles. The brains behind this maneuver is chef Masahiro Takada, whose credentials include stints at several Michelin-starred restaurants and whose superlative degustation menus are the highlights here at Ristorante Takada’s Alexandra Road location.
Tokyo and Singapore’s Osteria La Luna Rossa, Ristorante Sadler, Ristorante Ambasciata, Ristorante Antica Corona Reale, and Acqui Terme’s Ristorante Pisterna are just some of the highly-acclaimed international restaurants that head chef Masahiro Takada has had the pleasure of working with. Finally, having found a home in Singapore’s Queenstown, prominent among the upscale shopping and dining options at the foot of the striking Alexis apartment complex along Alexandra Road, Takada is set to galvanize Singapore’s gourmet restaurant scene with his signature Japanese-Italian fusion cuisine.
For the best possible experience at Queenstown’s Ristorante Takada, book the daily-changed seven-course degustation menu or the luxurious omakase menu that invites you to surrender to this renowned chef’s deep understanding of the synergy between Japanese and Italian flavours and textures. That said, Ristorante Takada also offers Singapore a fantastic a la carte menu featuring innovative dishes like a carpaccio made from fresh fish imported from the famous Tsukiji market, squid ink tagliolini with pepperoncino and Hokkaido sea urchin, and seasonal fare such as the Albanese white truffle selection (the Kagoshima Wagyu carpaccio and French quail with foie gras dishes are outstanding).
Had been there for lunch and dinner. Good food, excellent service and nice ambience. Prices also very reasonable for the set lunch menu. Presentation of food also very good. Will go back again for sure.
Dishes and services were excellent. We went for our wedding anniversary. Ordered omakase course. Love the food, simply love how the food are lovely cooked to bring out their individual unique tastes. The food is just nice!! Will visit and recommend
Not my first time in Ristorante Takada and definitely not my last. The food is good, (fine dining) especially the kagoshima wagyu beef which literally melt in your mouth. Service is good. They always give complimentary cup of soup and sweets after the meal. In the past, they used to give small truffles, magdelines, meringue etc after the meal but yesterday they gave biscotti....I preferred the truffles, magdelines, meringues though. I remembered lighting used to a little dimmer/warmer but yesterday's lighting was quite bright. Slightly dim/warm lighting would be better
We had great time for lunch. All of food was excellent, especially uni pasta with squid ink sauce was great. I want to eat again. I appreciate restaurant's hospitality as well.
Ristorante Takada is definitely a hidden gem along Alexandra Road..for the moment. The food and dessert prepared by the chefs seem simple but it is tasty and wonderful. Look out for dishes like Hokkaido Uni Pasta with Squid Ink sauce, Kagoshima Wagyu steak and Roasted French Magret duck. Attentive service was given by the staff, and introduction of each course was not rushed. However, there is limited seating. Hence, a reservation would be wise.
You don't get restaurants like Takada in Singapore anymore. Yes it is small and homey, but it also serves some of the finest Italian food in Singapore. The heavy Japanese influence at takada is what makes this restaurant unique and amazing.
Excellent taste, but the freshness of the ingredients were not very satisfying. Please improve the quality of the ingredients. For example the lobster. I found it abit difficult to eat since it wouldn't peel off easily from the shell. Excellent service. Good dinner experience overall.
We celebrated wife's birthday at the restaurant. All dishes were verydelicious, a handmade birthday cake was special, beautiful, exclusive to my wife. We will definitely come back to this restaurant soon.
Good service. The set lunch was also value for money and I particularly enjoyed the desserts. However, the waiting time for each dish was a little long - best if you have time for a long lunch.
Good and experienced service staffs. We enjoyed our omakase dinner although serving portion is slightly small. Overall a pleasant dining experience for us. We would like to go back for lunch sans kid the next time.
