These top-rated pasta places in Singapore are straight-up Bellissimo to the taste!

Very few things in the world can assume many forms like pasta does, and with that come many spots in Singapore that claim theirs is as authentic of a shape as their “Italian brother” from another mother.

Spoiler alert: ancestry alone isn’t a credible source for making one’s country’s world-renowned cuisine. Otherwise, the actual “good” chefs are all Italians to the core.

But regardless of the chef’s nationality or the acrobatic tricks you can do with dough, these particular pasta places’ creations are worth a good slurp. You’ll discover how “Bellissimo!” is one of the most useful adjectives to describe them all! 

Pasta Brava


Address: 33 Erskine Rd, #01-13 Scarlet Hotel

Contact Details: +65 6222 0879
Operating Hours: Monday to Sunday: 8 AM – 9:30 PM 

If you’re looking for a pasta place with an authentic Italian experience to back it up, then give Pasta Brava a shot and you won’t regret sinking your teeth into their various dishes.

Being in the business since 1991, Pasta Brava is often called one of the oldest and most traditional Italian restaurants in Singapore, with one of its main highlights being that it samples many styles of pasta from different regions of Italy.

The Half-Lobster Spaghetti and its signature Squid Ink Seafood Spaghetti are to die for. You can even customize your own pasta for only $28 by type (e.g. spaghetti, fettuccine), sauce (e.g. arrabbiata, aglio olio), and add-ons (e.g. mushrooms, scallops).

Aside from its handcrafted edible works of art, you’re also paying for the experience of the place, which features a blend of actual Italian and Asian art pieces under soft and warm incandescent lighting.

Osteria Mozza


Address: 333 Orchard Rd, Level 5

Contact Details: +65 6831 6271
Operating Hours: Monday to Sunday: 12 PM – 2:30 PM, 5 PM – 10:30 PM

Located within the Hilton Singapore Orchard, the one-Michelin-starred Osteria Mozza is quite a classy Californian-Italian restaurant that features some of the best must-try pasta dishes — it even has its own smart casual dress code.

With the level of cuisine it can deliver, it’s no surprise that you should be dressed for the occasion at Osteria Mozza because of how presentable and delectable its special handmade pasta is.

From garganelli to tagliatelle, this pasta place has an impressive array of pasta types you usually don’t hear about. Some specifically recommended dishes that are priced just right include the 32-dollar Garganelli Ragu Bolognese.

Since Osteria Mozza is, in essence, a fine dining experience, the prices can significantly go up from there for certain menu items. Nonetheless, it’s as much of a palatable experience as it is a visual one worth trying out at least once (or twice!).

Pastaria Abate


Address: 86 Neil Rd

Contact Details: 6909 0672

When it comes to pasta places in Singapore that really give you that homely feeling mixed in with fine skills that only the pros can pull off, you cannot go wrong with Pastaria Abate.

Unlike your run-of-the-mill “Italian” restaurant, Pastaria Abate is fully dedicated to giving hungry customers the authentic Italian pasta experience through their use of freshly picked ingredients without the premium price tag.

This family-run restaurant really applies the al dente concept well in just about every single pasta dish that it puts out. You can notice this in how firm its signature “Al Ragu” beef brisket pasta is, which has just enough “bite” to it.

Whether it’s signature dishes or customizable pasta, Pastaria Abate is the place to be if you want your noodles to be low on sogginess and high in flavors that both Italians and Singaporeans can approve of!

Prefer a more budget-friendly pasta place that also offers takeaways? Let PastaGo bring your favorite pasta dishes to your doorstep at unbeatable prices.

Unlike most of the entries on our list, PastaGo proves that you don’t need to spend a pretty penny every time you’re craving some Tomato Marinara, which only costs $6.7 by itself.

Adding toppings like grilled chicken, sauteed prawns, or smoked salmon will only cost you around 2 to 3 dollars extra on average. The “Chef Specials” are also worth digging into, which include menu items like the spicy “Hot Pink” tomato cream linguine.

So far, only the Wisteria Mall branch has the option for dine-in if you’re ever around the area. While it’s definitely nothing too fancy, it gives you a chance to grab a bite while it’s still at its hottest and freshest.

Lasagnas are offered in both beef and vegetarian options, which is a plus for this pasta place. If you’re also curious about the bestseller, order a flavorful serving of Linguine Frutti Di Mare filled with fresh shrimp, calamari, and clams.

Bella Pasta’s location also has great riverside views with its Al Fresco dining, another one of its main features worth sharing with a significant other or a group of friends during a night out.

Tipo Pasta Bar


Address: 28 Aliwal St, #01-07

Contact Details: +65 8768 0785
Operating Hours: Monday to Sunday: 11 AM – 10 PM

This list of pasta places in Singapore wouldn’t ever be complete without mentioning Tipo Pasta Bar, a pizza and pasta restaurant in the hidden gem (hidden gems in singapore) of Kampong Glam that can also leave the creative process to the paying customer.

While Tipo Pasta Bar isn’t halal-certified, it is still Muslim-owned, so a lot of the options for pasta are highly customizable to suit the preferences of just about anyone.

If you’re too hungry and would rather leave the work to the pros, then we suggest going for crowd favorites such as Beef Ragu and basically anything else that is smothered in Tipo’s signature “pink sauce”.

Pasta Fresca Da Salvatore


Outlets: 30 Boat Quay

   Guthrie House 01-02, 1 Fifth Avenue (Bukit Timah)

   9 Upper East Coast Road, 01-01 (Siglap)

Contact Details: 6532 6283 (Boat Quay) / 6469 4920 (Bukit Timah) / 6241 5560 (Siglap)
Operating Hours: Monday to Thursday: 11:30 AM – 3 PM, 6 PM – 10 PM

      Friday to Sunday: 11:30 AM – 11 PM

It’s a common saying to respect your elders, and we can say that Pasta Fresca Da Salvatore has received plenty of respect for having been in the pasta business successfully since 1988.

Being a well-trusted pasta place is one thing, but having three different outlets across the nation that deliver the same proven-delicious formula for conjuring up its wide variety of pasta creations is something else.

This particular chain of pasta restaurants gets pretty busy on the regular, and with bestsellers like the Ravioli de Burrata and its Tiramisu cake as dessert around, you’d best book a table early.

You also get the chance to create your own pasta dish, and it goes without saying that you’ll be using only fresh and high-quality ingredients straight out of the Italian peninsula.



Address: 128 Tembeling Rd

Contact Details: +65 6513 2286
Operating Hours: Tuesday to Thursday: 6 PM – 10:30 PM

      Friday to Sunday: 12 PM to 2:30 PM, 6 PM to 10:30 PM

For pasta made with passion, intricacy, and perfect form, head on over to Forma, a merging of different traditional handmade pasta recipes by Ben Fatto and the Cicheti Group.

Without a doubt, presentation is one of the highest at Forma even by trattoria standards, which carries over to the actual rich texture and flavor of its wide variety of pasta shapes.

Pasta enthusiasts can experience the taste of different Italian regions through some of the finest plates such as the zesty Linguine al Limone and the Gramigna Paglia e Fieno spinach pasta.

Now while pasta easily takes the limelight at this fine establishment, it wouldn’t hurt to give other non-pasta items a try, like the Crostini con Datteri e Speck ham as an antipasto (appetizer) and the Cernia alla Marinara grouper as the main course.

iO Italian Osteria


Address: 4 Hillview Rise, #02 – 01

Contact Details: +65 6710 7150
Operating Hours: Monday to Friday: 11:30 AM – 10 PM

      Saturday to Sunday: 10 AM – 10 PM

Despite the “Osteria” in its name, a location like iO Italian Osteria isn’t just a regular place to sit down and eat some pasta with wine on the side, but rather an entire experience of the history of Italy’s tradition of osterias carried over to Singaporean soil.

With a blend of modern and rustic themes, iO Italian Osteria’s atmosphere would make anyone with a craving for pasta receive more than their money’s worth. 

It’s an experience of “slightly” traveling back through time while also enjoying a mouthful of flavors like no other, especially if you opt for dishes like Tagliolini Truffle or the Linguine Cartoccio Seafood that’s fit for a night with the boys (or gals).

But regardless of whether you’re ordering in bulk or going solo, you can be assured that only the freshest and finest of ingredients make it to each and every dish, all at reasonable prices as well. We have the Head Chef, Ms. Anna Borrasi, to thank for that.
