The crust was crispy yet slightly chewy and not oily. Taste good with the ricotta, mushrooms, fried egg and slight hint of truffle. Portion is not that big so you can order more items to share.

Worth trying since I’ve never seen fried pizza in Singapore although the pappardelle impressed us more.

Vegetarian option with cherry tomatoes, zucchini strips and ricotta. Saucy, flavourful and sweet. So good that you don’t need protein to go with it.

Squid ink mafalde, creamy pesto, caramelised cherry sun dried tomatoes, smoked duck, bird’s eye chillies, chilli flakes, EVOO, grated parmesan.

Pesto flavour was strong and taste good even though it got gelak towards the end - luckily this was alleviated by the sour sun dried cherry tomatoes. Mafalde reminds me of mee hun kueh and is my default pasta choice here.

Adding both bird’s eye chillies and chilli flakes make all the difference. Without these, their pastas are just alright. Spicy pasta is their USP.

Gnocchi were light, pillowy with a mild potato flavour and crisp exterior - absolutely delectable. It went well with the earthy flavours of the forest mushrooms and mushroom velouté. Shaved parmigiano on top added that bit of sharp, saltiness.

I enjoyed this very much.

Butterfly pea malfalde was really chewy think I taste gluten 😛 and was perfect for catching sauces in its crevices. Love the pink sauce + truffle pate + bird’s eye chillies + chilli flakes + parmesan combi. It was creamy, flavourful and super spicy (shiok), I cleaned the plate of its sauces. I think the option to add on chilli padi is what makes Tipo special. Smoked duck was a good choice.

Not authentic flavours but I will go back again for spicy pasta. It was like having western chilli mee.

Espresso, mascarpone, pure cocoa, savoiardi biscuits, coffee liqueur.

Biscuits were well soaked with coffee liqueur and espresso - the flavours definitely came through - and loved the copious amount of cocoa soil on top which helped to balance the creamy texture of the mascarpone.

Get this as part of their 2 course Weekday set lunch at only $20 + $3 (top-up)

Fresh burrata, cherry tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, ligurian basil.

Highlight were the generous amount of soft, creamy burrata and that chewy, yet light dough with slightly charred edges. Seldom do I get burrata pizza with so much burrata. It was well worth the price and I will order this again.

Guanciale, Pecorino, egg, black pepper

Carbonara cooked the traditional way with no cream. The guanciale is quite salty but still okay when eaten together with the pasta. It is a really rich and cheesy dish - best shared and eaten piping hot else it can get cloying.

An okay dish for me - still prefer the beef ragu tagliatelle - but maybe for carbonara lovers.

House smoked whipped buffalo milk ricotta + figs + parma ham + aged balsamic. Comes with 3 thin slices of bread.

You know it’s gonna taste good looking at this combination. Don’t really taste any smokiness in the ricotta though and I wish there is more balsamic. It is a sweet, savoury and creamy antipasta.

Tasty but portion is quite small. I’d rather pay $30 for another pasta.

Ragu is really rich, thick, flavourful and clings well to the pasta. I also really enjoyed the tagliatelle - it has a nice bite and is cooked al dente. Portion is substantial with plenty of meat and pasta. I’d pay for this again and again.

Pulled beef cheek, soffritto, paccheri

There is enough beef to go with every mouthful of al dente pasta. Paccheri goes really well with the beef. There are only a few ingredients (mouthful after mouthful of just beef + pasta) yet it is so satisfying.

Will go back to try out their other pastas ie tonnarelli nero

Wish I was a baller:
Sliced steak, french mustard bechamel, roasted onions, mushroom, provolone. The meat is not dry or chunky like you imagine sliced steak to be but more like pulled beef. I love the sauce - it taste like some unami mayo like sauce that goes so well with the beef, onions, mushroom and complements the dough perfectly.

Love this flavour combination. Will order this again if I’m here.

The crust is thin with a crispy like cracker edge. I wish the edges were chewier though, but my friend likes it crispy like this.

Crispy chicken sandwich:
Brussels sprout slaw, heirloom tomatoes, gouda cheese.
Bread is nicely grilled with spread. Slaw is creamy and not bitter. The fried chicken is not oozing with meat juice or whatever but it’s also not dry. I like the crispy breaded skin. A good alternative if you do not want fries or salad for sides.
