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.

Enjoyable Dinner

had delightful 2pax dinner with wife at il lido on 12.4.2015.^^ had not been to il lido like 5yrs maybe? recently daughter was here & shared photos on family whatsapp, so we decided to come try ourselves after so long. 
we came just before sundown & sat outdoor. not so humid this evening & really pleasant terrace ambience & wonderful dinner.^^ we were served 2 amuse bouche. first was a mushroom cappuccino/foam. there were mushroom bits at the bottom & some balsamic cream & some barley etc on top.  taste was intense, fabulous. texture combination excellent too. wife said what the server liked to hear, that this was better than jaan’s. for me though, nothing beats jaan’s cepes mushroom tea amuse bouche. but since jaan’s was taken out of feed at raffles, and i am never going to pay full price for the degustation dinner at jaan, this would be the next best thing, i guess! & its close too!^^ second amuse bouche – crispy cheese risotto…quite ok i guess, but no impressions vs the mushroom foam. quite good bread basket.

we ordered a grilled octopus to share. it’s pretty good really. octopus was tender (like sous vide). there were some sausages. for the mains, we basically go with the restaurant favourites & there server’s recommendations, and ordered the scampi & sea urchin taglioni & the black cod, asparagus & sea urchin. both were featured in the degustation set menu
the scampi & uni tagliolini was tasty, not intense but subtle & pleasing. tagliolini though was too soft NOT al dente. it had expensive ingredients like uni but overall taste & experience wise, i would not consider it better than most pastas i do myself. black cod was great! will try the other signature dish, the bone marrow crusted angus beef tenderloin next time. we had a passionfruit sorbet & a coconut gelato to share. sorbet was tangy & excellent, gelato no coconut flavours nothing like the delicious coconut ice cream on 雪中情怀mango pomelo dessert we had at tunglok. dinner cost S$100nett include 1 glass of white. it’s really quite excellent ambience & food for a couples dinner.

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!

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!

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.
