Chances are, you’ve heard about Sopra. It is, after all, one of Singapore’s most talked-about Italian restaurants. Situated on Claymore Road, you’ll recognise Sopra right away from its big festive sign, which reminds onlookers of an old-fashioned movie theatre or playhouse. Amid the hubbub of nearby Orchard Road, Sopra provides a calm, cool place to enjoy great Italian cuisine and a relaxed atmosphere for knocking a couple back with friends.
Known for their pizzas, the chefs at Sopra Italian Restaurant on Claymore Road in Singapore’s Orchard are obsessed with quality. From the fresh herbs to the flour in the dough, each ingredient is hand-selected and researched before going into any of Sopra’s dishes. The interior of the restaurant is beautiful and refined, with a bar, a library, main room and an al fresco dining area. Sopra even has private rooms that seat up to 18 guests, and the entire restaurant is also available for company functions and big events. Sopra’s drink specials are incredible – stop by for Happy Hour all night long on Monday and all day until 8pm from Tuesday to Sunday!
As authentic as they come, the dishes at Singapore’s Sopra are hearty and flavourful. Begin with the polpo alla carlofortina, a tasty salad made with slow cooked fresh octopus, celery, pine nuts, basil, olives and house dressing, or go for the classic caprese salad (always a pleaser!). Then, you’ll need to make a hard decision – pizza or pasta? Classic pizzas like the stagioni topped with mozzarella, ham, black olives, mushrooms and artichokes always make for a good choice, but the pastas are impressive, too – try the spaghetti aglio olio, a simple dish that packs in a ton of flavour. Be sure to finish up with one of Sopra’s amazing cannolis or a slice of homemade tiramisu. Reservations are a must at this Italian restaurant along the Orchard Road strip!
The staff were very attentive and pleasant. Our waitress was very informed of the menu and recommended some good dishes! The food was delicious and the ambience was very nice as well! We had a great dinner :)
Very good and attentive service staff; friendly and prompt service and we will definitely be back. Food was tasty and of a good portion too.
The place had a nice, cosy ambiance. The service was good and the food was tasty. I would most likely patronise the place again in future.
A real Gem, presentation is clean hip and authentic decor, service was amazing, plenty of choice for both food and wine, very comfortable inside and out with delicious food. Our table of 7 was catered for easily and all of us from 7 to 60's really enjoyed the night.
Great ambience. Tables are spaced out nicely which is good for conversation. Not crowded on a rainy Tuesday night. Service was good. Food was good. For dinner last evening we had complimentary bread (nice and warm), calamari for starter, for mains we had grilled lamb chops, fregola seafood pasta, for dessert we had cannoli and the salted caramel cake of the day. For 2 pax, the bill came up to $120 inclusive of tax. Will come back again.
The decor of the restaurant is very interesting - we liked it from the print of the floor tiles to the ceiling board. The Family-sized pizza looked intimidating at first but it was so tasty we had no problem finishing it. The lobster on the spaghetti was cray-fish size. The portion of the starters and desserts is much to be desired we had a laugh. For the same price, we can get a much bigger portion at a well-established restaurant just across the street. Which was exactly what we did after our meal here. We went across the street for more dessert and tea. We would return for the Happy Hours and pizza.
Lovely setting, nice atmoshpere, spacious table for our party of 9, food delicious. Only down side was the service - incredibly slow and very disinterested. We had to get up and go and find a waiter on almost every occasion we needed something, which was pretty annoying.
good place for gathering with the ladies.. wines awesome..service was very good.. we even got served by an italian guy... White moscato is the best.. loving their pastas too.... :D
The ambience was lovely and the pastas and salads were great! Another yummy dish was the calamari. The service was a bit mediocre that night and the pizzas were not as crispy as I personally like them.
Lovely place and great food! Service was a bit on slow side bur very friendly and good managemement! Definitely recommend! Pastas were delicious and decor and ambience are great.
