Al Dente Trattoria

This small and successful restaurant chain serves superb Italian fare in a beautiful set-up...


It has four outlets, although only two of them are really nice for 'Alfresco' dinning, especially the one at The Esplanade, where you can dine on the roof, surrounded by the city's glittering skyscrapers and Marina Bay... marvelous  backdrop for a marvelous feast...


The kitchen prepares the classics of Italian cuisine, with a modern twist... excellent selection of wood-fire-pizzas, alongside some seriously scrumptious pasta dishes, antipasti, fish, seafood, chicken, lamb, beef and what not...


Recommended dishes include: Antipasti sampler platter,  Linguine Marinara,  Grilled sausage fettuccinePenne with scallops,  Braised beef cheeks with asparagus and garlic mash  and  Grilled tenderloin with gratinated Taleggio cheese, wild mushrooms, new potatoes and Chianti wine sauce.


Among the desserts, the Tiramisu and the Strawberry cognac cheesecake are well worth waiting for...


Prices are quite average for this class of restaurant: around SG$ 50 - 70 for a full a-la-carte dinner.


Open daily for lunch and dinner (slightly later on weekends and public holidays)
