Singapore’s nine most authentic Italian restaurants

Who doesn’t love Italian food? With the glut of Italian restaurants (and those Italian-inspired ones) popping up all over the place, dining on pasta is almost second nature to us. But how do we tell which ones are the real deal?

Ospitalità Italiana (Italian Hospitality) has done all the work for us and had sussed out the city to find the most authentic restaurants this side of Bologna. 

Ospitalità Italiana is a collaboration between the Istituto Nazionale Ricerche Turistiche (National Institute of Tourist Research) and the Italian Chamber of Commerce to identify the most authentic Italian restaurants around the world (numbering 400) and nine of our own made it to this list.
