2nd Visit 🍝 We learnt from our previous visit that they do their pasta better than their pizzas. This time, we ordered the Pancetta tortellini & Chef-special seafood marinara (tomato base). The Pancetta tortellini was extremely flavorful bc of the bacon oil (bacon fans will go gaga over this), but we felt that it was a tad bit too salty. The dish was good, but it could’ve been more enjoyable if there was an appropriate portion of tortellini to match the amount of bacon on the plate. We made a good decision to choose the seafood marinara to accompany our first dish because the lightness and sweetness of the tomato sauce was a refreshing break from the heavy/ salty pancetta tortellini. Perhaps the sauce could have been thicker and more tangy for it to be a stronger dish on its own. With that being said, there was a good amount of seafood on the plate which made it a bang for the buck 😊🤭👍🏻 the tiger prawns were also very succulent!

No-fuss Italian It was our 1st time here for Burpple 1-for-1 as we were near the area and we decided to get the Tortellini Truffle (above) and Parma di Rucola (below). The Tortellini Truffle was topped with generous amount of mushroom truffle cream sauce. The tortellini was stuffed with four different types of cheeses, and when paired with the sauce, was really delicious. If you are a mushroom truffle fan, this dish is highly recommended! However, the parma-ham pizza was a disappointment!! The crust was too thin and dry and the parma-ham was looked and tasted old. It felt like we were eating dry crackers with a month old parma-ham. Please save yourself and do not get it! This must be the reason why they are called "Pasta E Formaggio" instead of "Pizza E Formaggio" 🙃. Would come back for their pastas!!

Forlino Does NOT deserve 2 Stars by Wine&Dine The best thing about this place is the location and the view. Maybe it’s not fair to judge a restaurant just by referring to the Valentine’s Day set menu ($178++ for non-front row tables) and dining experience, but based on that, it doesn’t rank among the top 15 Italians in Singapore. Portions are Lilliputian, none of the dishes is a wow, and the dessert is too dry. The menu said “lobster risotto”, but it’s really crayfish!!?! I remained hungry and was tempted by the idea of buying French fries at OverEasy downstairs. Service is not terribly proactive - one must ask for water refills several times during the meal. After opening the wine, the waiter asked “would you like to test, or should I just pour?” In a restaurant of this calibre, you don’t ask this kind of question - more training is called for! Cheaper restaurants would present a flower to lady guests, but not here! Forlino is a case of marble pricing but linoleum food and service. Chef Osvaldo Forlino’s No Menu restaurant is not great, but better than Forlino.
