SAPORE ITALIANO (SI) @ RAFFLES CITY


I was invited to this place for my birthday treat by Stanley Leong, 938 Live’s The Living Room Host. We celebrated not only my birthday but also another friend, Nur’s birthday.

I parked my car strategically below nearer to the office block and took a lift up to the first floor. The restaurant is located just at the lobby of the office block lifts, on the left turn after coming out of the car park lift. We were greeted very warmly by the staff and shortly, the boss of the place, Andrea came and talked to us. Very friendly native Italian with a very strong accent.

The whole idea about SI is to bring native home-cooked Italian food to the masses in Singapore. It may not be very cheap in this restaurant, but it is a lot more affordable than it’s counterparts around the vicinity especially the one on the opposite side of the building. Authentic is the word and the whole night we were treated with Andrea’s hospitality, coming back to check on us on the food, treating us to some of his home-cooked specialties and wines. Overall, we were awed by the warmth and the delicious tasting food.
