Duxton continues to evolve into a food hub and one of the latest is Alba 1836, offering fine dining quality Italian fare at this chi chi neighbourhood.

At a recent visit, I had the set lunch ($35) which started with a tasty Mediterranean seafood soup, followed by squid ink risotto and tiramisu for dessert. I found this to be really good value for money.

Service was impeccable, what one would expect in a fine dining setting.

From the a la carte menu I tried the Foie Gras ($30), a huge piece of fatty goose liver pan fried with cranberry sauce that is meant to be shared.

I also tried the Cheese Platter ($26), three kinds of goat, cow and mixed pieces with bread to go with.

Overall, was rather impressed by the quality. Good for a value for money business lunch.

we celebrated my mum's birthday here and I was thoroughly impressed by the food and service! the maitre d was on top form managing professionalism and warmth, as were the serving crew who were also detail oriented and friendly. the food was the real surprise - wonderful presentation, high quality oils and vinegars, delicious pecorino cheese and fig starter, wild mushroom and slow cooked egg soup, wild mushroom risotto and warm chocolate cake. definitely one of the underrated gems amidst the many Italian eateries jostling for space in singapore!

The place looks really nice, a mix of modern and classical. Food is genuine Italian (the owners come from Italy and the chef is from Sardinia) with a modern touch. Incredible selection of wines, the ones from Italy are fantastic.
