The buzz: It might be a little overhyped given that back in the UK it’s a reliably affordable chain with more than 30 outlets, but Jamie’s Italian—Jamie Oliver's first Singapore project—is finally open at VivoCity.

The vibe: The large space—which has a clear sea view—is outfitted with mismatched furnishings (think red booth seats and blue metal chairs), some of it custom made and other pieces sourced from vintage stores. All of it contributes to a casual breezy feel.

The food: A range of affordable everyday eats, which are very similar to the chain’s offerings worldwide. There’s Jool’s Favourite Sicilian Tuna Fusilli (from $14), a briny bowlful of house-made pasta, slow-cooked albacore and cinnamon breadcrumb topping, plus, crab risotto (from $19) and grilled chicken with pizziola tomato sauce ($28). Desserts include their take on tiramisu ($11.50), a five layered dessert topped with orange mascarpone.

The drinks: Easy-on-the-pocket Italian wines (from $49.50) and plenty of refreshing tipples such as the sour cherry fizz ($15)—sour cherries, orange liqueur, cherry brandy and prosecco—as well as classics like the negroni ($14). Teetotalers can pick from a range of non-alcoholic options (made in-house) such as ginger beer (from $6.50) and Italian lemonade (from $5.50).

Why you’ll be back: For fresh value-for-money Italian recipes served up in hearty portions. The location right by the water means the view’s lovely too if you choose to sit outside.

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