The highlight of this Italian steakhouse at Mohamed Sultan Road is the Bistecca Fiorentina, a massive 1.2kg piece of Australian wagyu. Those who avoid beef will be glad that the restaurant also has a selection of pastas and non beef dishes.

Expensive, but still the best steak in Singapore

Moving here from London, it was hard to give up great steaks cooked properly (e.g. in a Josper grill). When you see how packed Goodman's is even on weeknights, you wonder why Singapore doesn't have an equivalent. Even places that supposedly specialize in steak (Bedrock Bar & Grill, I'm thinking about you) serve desperately thin, small pieces of meat, cooked at too low heat, without much flavour... ...until Bistecca came along. Not quite a Josper grill, it's more the giant flame around the meat kind of place, but the effect is the same.

Go for the costata, not the bistecca - it's tastier, softer and takes better to that method of cooking. Medium will keep it nice and red on the bone whilst ensuring the fat will actually melt into the rest of the meat and you'll get a nice crust. No information on what beef it is, but it definitely has enough flavour to be worth the 180++. A costata should feed three. The only issue I have with the place is the high priced wine list. I think there are only 2 bottles below 90++.  Nice atmosphere inside suitable for a business occasion or a date, but I still prefer sitting outdoors between the cypresses after the sun has set.

Went to Bistecca for lunch on Easter Sunday with my family, and it was not busy at all. I was suprised because the room at the back was totally empty. I guess everybody was out of town...

We share the Burrata and the Polipo (Octopus) for appetizer, and both were really good. I would order both again.

For main courses, my wife had the Filetto (Wagyu Tenderloin -SGD 62). She ordered it medium and it came cooked to perfection. She was happy with both the quality and the cooking doneness.

My kids and I shared the 1.1 Kg Costata (Wagyu Bone-in Ribeye - SGD 178). It's a pricey piece of meat but I must say that it's worth every penny. We ordered it medium-rare and it was perfectly cooked. I'm still dreaming of that rib-eye...

The side dishes that we ordered (the beetroot, the fries and the spinach) were OK, but nothing to write home about. I would say the same for the desserts, although they did not have the Panna Cotta available, which is supposed to be their best dessert.

They also have a well sourced italian wine list that is as expensive as any wine list in Singapore for a restaurant of this category. We enjoyed a bottle of a 2010 Rosso di Montalcino at SGD 98. 

Overall, it was very good but somewhat expensive (or costly...). I want to go back to try the Grass Fed Black Angus beef, which is less expensive, and the Panna Cotta.

Came for a business lunch. Great decor. What I loved was a passion for the produce including where it has been sourced. the chef is curing own cold cuts. I also like the good choice of greens and refreshing tomatoe salad, as well as the great fries. Often steak restaurent only have heavy sides (Mac cheese etc). Great melt in mouth steak cooked over charcoal flame.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
