Tucked away at the shophouses of the Jalan Peminpin, Rubato Modern Italian Trattoria is a hidden gem among the coffee shops and hawker centres of the Bishan region. The restaurant entices diners with its sumptous spread of handmade pastas, freshly baked pizzas and freshest seafood.

Review for Rubato Italian Restaurant

This restaurant is NOT closed. Rubato is one of the finest Italian restaurants in Singapore. The ambience is warm, the staff are friendly and very professional. The food is excellent. The presentation is very tasteful. Marcus, the owner is very approachable and will come to your table to discuss any dietary
concerns. Very highly recommended. A definite *****

It's not closed but probably wished it did. This could be a way to avoid unfavorable review but here I go.
 
 Made a reservation at Rubato for Christmas dinner for spouse @ 2 kids. Went there but was told only Christmas dinner available. Not fine.
 
 Saw another table of 2 families with kids having pizza and pasta not from the Christmas menu. Asked and was told that's because they had advance reservation. Fine.
 
 Saw another family with kids who settled down and was ready to order. Heard the man asked very loudly why they were not told of Christmas menu when they booked? They were then allowed to order from regular menu. Not fine!
 
 Christmas menu has no food suitable for my 2.5 yr old.
 The main course was too salty.
 To be fair the burrata was nice.
 
 Overall, the whole experience was totally destroyed but I kept quiet as I didn't want to ruin our family's Christmas dinner.
 
 1) Why didn't Rubato tell us about Christmas menu over the phone when we booked?
 
 2) Why was the other table allowed to order from regular menu after they kicked up a fuss?
 
 3) Why did you ruin my Christmas dinner?

What a load of nonsense.  I just came back from a very enjoyable lunch at Rubato.  What's going on with this listing?  

We enjoyed the grilled squid, the best grilled squid I have enjoyed in Singapore - wonderfully remeniscient of Lygon Street in Melbourne.  We also enjoyed the caprese salad, made with torn fresh bocconcini pieces. Authentic and lovely.  Nice selection of wines at reasonable prices, and fantastic, personal service.  Nice place!

So-so food, with slow service.
Food portioning was way too small for the price paid (Cesar Salad)
Food quality was sub-par, ordered mussels in white wine; broth was very little and lack flavour

Pizza was really just normal ...

Overall, you can give it a mi

Enjoyed the food but the service was quite slow and the portion of the salad (we had the ceaser) was too small for the price it commanded. loved the seafood in a basket. yummy. my main came before my friend's which technically all starters/ entrees should be prepared and come together. she was left waiting for at least 10 mins.
