Best Italian Restaurant

It is not very easy to distinguish the best Italian restaurant Singapore due to the very competitive market at this age. Moreover there are restaurants that serves fusion Italian food making it more complex to categorise and judge. Most of us would choose an Italian restaurant based on the convenience of its location, word of mouth and sometimes because we have a favourite dish that cannot be found elsewhere. Pasta Fresca was established since 1988 and has since gained many regulars who love the authenticity of its food. Pasta Fresca Boat Quay is conveniently located by the Singapore River in the heart of CBD.



Choosing an Italian Restaurant

Although Italian restaurants are becoming rapidly more popular, they are still not as commonplace as local eateries. It is best to do a little research before you head down. Typically, just do a search on the net for the best Italian restaurant in Singapore. From there, you can get a slew of results that you will be spoilt for choice. Do not assume that the highest on the list is always the best. Check restaurant reviews and if possible from any family or friend who has been there. However food can be subjective to individual taste. What you find salty can be just right to some others. Therefore it is best to go with general consensus.



Outdoor Catering

Outdoor event catering can be a hassle if you do not get the right caterer. Imagine fifty hungry guests waiting and your caterer is late. In a hurry, he accidently drops food on your brand new carpet. The worst of all, the food is bland and insufficient! These are the worst possible scenarios that could happen. That is why when looking for an event catering Singapore, it is important to source for the right one. Testimonials from other corporate businesses can be a source for your research.
