Take a seat at the counter and admire the extravagant arches and elegant details at this snazzy restaurant off Neil Road. You’re here for a pasta feast, starting with the Tagliolini Nero ($35) with uni, scallop and squid in an umami seafood reduction. Also share the tomato-based Taglierini ($32) with creamy stracciatella and chili padi that provides a nice kick. The Cacio e Pepe ($29) may look simple, but doesn’t fail to satisfy. Finish with their 72% Venezuela Cocoa Cake ($12.50) lightly seasoned with pink sea salt and served with vanilla gelato.

Impress your date at this hip, unfussy joint on Club Street that's great for inventive cooking and natural wines (they carry small quantities of ~200 types). Start with their House-baked Sourdough ($6) and house-cured Charcuterie ($16). Then, have the Cedar Jelly and Foie Gras Toast ($16) for a melt-in-your-mouth moment you won't forget. The menu changes frequently, but the Beef Tongue Sammy ($26) and the Endive ($21) — a salad that is perfectly complemented by Kyoho grape and tete de moine cheese — are mainstays you must not miss. If available, end your meal with the Birch Syrup Tart.

Sweet riverside views aside, this joint along Collyer Quay also serves up Italian fare sure to impress. Start with the house favourite Housemade Ricotta ($15), drizzled with chestnut honey and served with crisp sourdough toast. On mains, don't leave without ordering the sublimely umami and peppery Mafaldine "Cacio e Pepe" ($25).

It's not difficult to see why this Michelin-starred spot along Keong Saik Road is highly beloved by the foodie community – the digs are spacious, ambience is welcoming, and the food's fantastic. Treat yourself to their 7-Course Autumn Set Menu ($188) or go for the 4-Course Lunch Menu ($98) — Burppler Nobelle Liew recommends the Jeju Abalone Multigrain Risotto for an additional $10. Also look out for the punchy beef tartare cone starter and melt-in-your-mouth NZ rack of lamb.

Stellar rooftop views and incredulously value-for-money menus are the reasons diners flock to this MBS spot. Pop by at lunch for the affordably priced 3-Course Express Prix Fixe Menu ($45), which sees a mean line-up — from the impeccable Big Eye Tuna Tartare Cone to the super fresh Steamed Japanese Sea Bream.

"No pretentious bullshit" is the headliner at this act, and the experience speaks for itself. Expect cool music, chummy service and communal plates great for sharing with your date — think fall-off-the-bone twice-cooked Lamb Shoulder ($42) and their range of smoky Neopolitan-style pizzas. Chocolate lovers, don't leave without getting the decadent Chocolate Salty Pie ($6).

This trendy 45-seater along Amoy Street serves up a mash of European offerings with bold flavours. The best part? Everything is house-made – from their bread down to the pastry used for their tasty Beef Empanadas ($16 for two). Start with the refreshing Sea Bream Ceviche ($26), before moving on to the Ojo de Bife ($65) – we're talking a lusciously meaty 28-day aged in-house rib eye.

Evolving from its predescessor Cheek by Jowl, keep this this younger, funkier spot in mind for your next date night. Order the crisp Barramundi ($36), that comes with a side of braised leeks on an umami mussel-based sauce. Alternatively, opt for their excellent Waffle with Chicken Liver Parfait ($6) and their cold Smoked Tomato Granita ($6) for mouthfuls of umami and briny fresh oyster. Then go for the classic yet kicky Burrata ($22) with tomatoes and fermented green chilli.

If tongue numbing Sichuan-style dishes are up your date's alley, this fusion spot along Amoy Street should do the trick. Burpple community favourites include the super addictive Charcoal Grilled Pork Bits ($15), a deliciously unconventional sourish-creamy Forbidden Risotto ($35) and the Spicy Oriental Bolognaise ($22) – think zha jiang mian, but with angel hair pasta.

Think formal dates are overrated? Then this casual spot is for you – best enjoyed as a pair by the bar with beers. Go for the punchy Brawn Terrine ($12), before diving into the comforting Mac n Cheese ($18) that's topped with a house-cured egg yolk. A range of craft beers are available here, such as the malty and delicately sweet Rye on Wood (from $8 for 200ml).

Feast on premium grills (made with meat from halal-certified suppliers!) while enjoying the scenic city skyline at this grillhouse. If steak is what you're here for, don't hesitate on the flavourful grain-fed USDA Prime, Omaha, USA Sirloin ($74/340g), flaunting a rich crusty char. Though on the pricey side, the creamy and cheesy Boston Lobster Thermidor ($88) cooked in a white wine sauce is worth the splurge.
