This sharp and stylish restaurant serves contemporary Italian cuisine at an enviable location at Sentosa Golf Club overlooking the sea. Plenty of al fresco seating is available, or chill out in the cool modern interiors. A highlight of the award-winning menu is the wagyu beef cheek with sweet paprika, whipped polenta and black trombette mushrooms.

The restaurant has both indoor and alfresco seats. The outdoor ambience was quite casual for a fine dining, so try not to wear too formal in order to enjoy the relaxing ambience with sea view & lush greenery view as the weather in Singapore is quite warm.

Overall the service was very good and prompt. Food quality definitely met our expectations! Recommended for a romantic date or special occasions!

Meh... First time and last one

From making the phone reservation the lady who answers the phone kind of warns you on the service you are going to get just by the tone she speaks to you, rude, monotonius, assuming you been there before, etc.
Service is sloooow! from entree to main course expect at least 20-25 minutes (note the place was empty).
The waiter, is tthe guy who smells like armpit while you try to have to a high end culinary experienc...
Our plates where served all to the wrong person, so we have to exchange dishes.
Order a cappuccino but got a espress, so wait again for it to come (hopefully righ).
Oh and we got overcharged by two extra prosecos.
So pitty with such a wow location and venue the service is just awful!

Gorgeous view, fantastic food and excellent service

For the full review, please see http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2014/09/il-lido.html

I'd casually mentioned, while making a reservation, that we were celebrating a colleague's birthday, and the staff actually gifted us a surprise birthday cake for the birthday boy.   

Great service aside, the food was fantastic; masterful and exquisite. Best of all, the portions were pleasingly hearty. So even with the upmarket prices, I thought the meal was thoroughly worthwhile. 

Shortly after we were seated, we were served not one, but TWO, amuse bouche!

1) First off was a cup of Porcini Mushroom Soup laced with roasted barley for a little crunch

2) Next up was the Truffle Arancini, a miniature riceball crowned with a truffle shaving, intensely fragrant and wonderfully textured. 

3) A tip for the wallet-light: get the extremely value-for-money 3-Course Set Lunch ($38), complete with an amuse bouche and coffee or tea.

4) The daily soup option was a Cream of Asparagus, smooth and thick, fragranced by a splash of truffle oil.
 
5) The daily choice appetizer was a melt-in-your-mouth Beef Carpaccio, simply flavoured with shavings of parmigiano and wisps of microgreens and arugula, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.

5) An ala carte menu item, the Green Asparagus & Truffle Casserole ($28) was a bright green soft-boiled egg slurry weaved with garlic croutons and diced asparagus. 

6) For the mains, the pasta-of-the-day was a soft and chewy Homemade Penne with Pumpkin Squash and truffle sand, homey and sweet and mellow.

7) The daily fish was a perfectly Grilled Halibut with grilled root veggies, a light-as-air pomme puree and brown jus. 

8) Off the ala carte menu, the Mushroom Risotto ($35) stirred with stracchino cheese, and topped with shimeiji mushrooms and micro-cress, was sumptuous. A word of caution to small eaters though, this was massively portioned! 

9) The daily dessert option was a Vanilla Panna Cotta, a wobbly cone of delicate cream, balanced by the tart-ish strawberries. 

10) Some of us swopped out the daily dessert for a sweet on the ala carte menu. It was really nice that we were allowed to do that. The Banana Brulee ($18) was sweetened with salted caramel and sided by a rich coconut gelato. 

11) The Hazelnut Coulant ($18) was rich but nuanced, and juxtaposed with a spiced chocolate gelato. 

12) The complimentary birthday cake, a Tiramisu Moderno (usual price $18) was an excellent rendition of the classic Italian confectionery. This was at once heady, creamy and moist. 

13) Another ala carte menu item was the Italian Cheese Platter ($28), a fine selection of the blue, fontina and parmigiano varietals. Dates, fig compote and some rustic garlic-rubbed toast were on hand to help mop up every last bit of the funky cheese
