After being the face of Garibaldi for several years, the movement of Beppe De Vito to Il Lido left us wondering whether this institution in Italian fine dining had suffered from the loss. We arrived on a week night to find the restaurant almost full—testimony to the fact that, to the regulars at least, the change had not effected their faith in the establishment. And they proved to be right.

To get a full sample of the menu, we ordered the gourmet menu and a glass of truly fabulous Woodcutter semillon, and sat back to wait. Every course was divine, from the crabmeat salad with avocado which was deliciously fresh and light with citrus rind tones in the sauce, to the tagliolini with lobster and tomato chili where the seafood was perfectly cooked and some of the best we’ve tasted.

Even the dessert of warm chocolate cake and hazelnut ice cream was a sweet tooth’s dream and just the right combination of sweetness and richness. The only dish that was not exemplary was the beef tenderloin with mushroom which was still a well cooked offering.

Combine chef Roberto Galetti’s culinary skill with fine service and a nice welcoming vibe and Garibaldi is still one of the strongest contenders in the fine dining stakes.

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