The Lighthouse

What’s not to love about this gorgeous restaurant? An elegant, summery interior and stunning views make The Lighthouse a favorite for special occasions. Try the roasted whole seabass with herbs and Sicilian lemons, or the homemade taglioni with Amalfi's lemon sauce and lightly spiced prawns. 

While calling a restaurant in a lighthouse The Lighthouse may not be the most original idea (it was the same name that Les Amis used for a restaurant they ran here some years back), it is simple, memorable and it works. And aside from its excellent location, there is plenty about this restaurant to love. From the gorgeous, bright, summery interior and the stunning view of Marina Bay, to the attentive, professional service and elegant tables, this restaurant delivers superbly on all fronts.

Especially when it comes to the food (which is what’s really important, right?), as chef de cuisine Diego Martinelli has created a winning menu. We had their star dishes and every single one of them was amazing. Our wagyu beef carpaccio was perfect; the tagliolini with truffles came smothered in fat truffle shavings, the risotto with foie gras was totally sinful; and the grilled pork cheek simply melted in our mouths.

There is an exceptional and thoroughly innovative dessert you must try—the traditional balsamic vinegar sauteed strawberries with lavender flower ice‑cream, which was unlike anything we’ve had elsewhere. Martinelli also makes his own limoncello (Italian lemon liqueur) infused with yummy flavors like coffee, chocolate and basil (we picked the basil which was unusual but delightful).

This is a restaurant you can return to time and time again—bring your friends, dates, clients, bosses—we doubt it will ever disappoint. And if you come in the evening, have a glass of champagne on their rooftop lounge—it’s an experience that puts the proverbial icing on the cake of this splendid dining experience.

Mamma mia! Is your favorite Italian restaurant on our list of Singapore's best?
