Al Dente Trattoria @ Esplanade, Singapore

Al Dente at Colours By The Bay, Esplanade

  Italians have long been envied for their good looks, art and culture, and of course their cuisine. Al Dente at Colours By The Bay, Esplanade, is the prefect example of what it means to be Italian. The restaurant oozes style and taste. Dark green and beige predominate to create a look of contemporary elegance, enhanced by modern furnishings and soft lighting. Sketches by Leonardo da Vinci and Botticelli-inspired paintings lend a touch of romance, adding to the total look and feel of Al Dente. The restaurant is spread over two levels and offers diners an uninterrupted view of the waterfront. Al Dente is definitely the place to be when making an impression matters.

One of their best dessert, Tiramisu

Al Dente is owned by Creative Eateries. The first Al Dente Italian restaurant opened at Boat Quay, followed soon after by a second restaurant at Lorong Mambong, Holland Village. Al Dente is looking to attract working adults and tourists at its newest restaurant at Esplanade.

Perfect place to have a dinner at night with Singapore's Skyline

Prices have been deliberately kept "friendly", says Anthony Wong, CEO of Creative Eateries. A three-course meal would average about $70, while wine prices start from under $40.

Anthony has extensive experience in the Food and Beverage business. He started his career in the industry by working in the F&B department of international chain hotels. In 1992, he opened his first restaurant. To date, Creative Eateries operates Al Dente, Hot Stones, Patara Fine Thai Cuisine and Intermezzo.

The food served is authentic Italian, right down to its wood-fired pizzas for that special aroma. Al Dente offers no-nonsense pizzas that come generously laden with a wide choice of toppings. Its Hawaiian pizza has a popular following, and comes topped with chunks of pineapple and bacon instead of the usual chopped ham. Besides pizzas, Al Dente also offers a wide choice of pastas to thrill pasta lovers, including its ever-popular Salmone and Spaghetti Arragosta. For a sweet ending, Al Dente tempts with its rich Tiramisu, Gelato and fine Italian Cappucino. Its wine list features close to 40 labels from Italy, Australia and the United States. The wines are categorised according to their strength, from light to full-bodied.
