La Cantina in Venezia is located in Netheravon Road and serves Italian cuisine.
I have had such great experiences at this restaurant that I just had to create an account to leave a review. I have eaten at this restaurant about five times, and each time was made memorable with the delicious food, generous portions, good service, great view and romantic ambience. I recommend the lobster pasta, crabmeat linguine, steak, lamb shank and any of the pizzas.
This place is a hidden gem. Lovely views, both in the day and the night. In the daytime you can see the neighbouring islands (Ubin?) and at night the restaurant is lit up beautifully with soft romantic candlelight. It's definitely the best spot for a date.
The crabmeat linguine is their specialty and it's the best I've had in Singapore and overseas. Try the parma ham with melon too!

La Cantina In Venezia means The Cellar In Venice, which gives a clue to the theme of this restaurant. Probably one of the better, and also more expensive, Italian restaurants I've dined in, La Cantina In Venezia serves traditional Italian food in a comfortable and whimsical setting, with great views of the bay.
Service at La Cantina In Venezia is befitting a fine dining restaurant. We had a problem with a shaky table, which staff fixed on the spot. They also acceded to our request to portion out food, as we were sharing. Staff also offer to change dirty plates throughout the meal.
The Pasta Linguine Al Granchio is the signature dish here, and consists of crab meat and linguine in a creamy tomato sauce. Very fresh and tasty, highly recommended!
The Pasta Spaghetti Pescatora is a seafood pasta, consisting of mussels, prawns, squid and scallops in a light spicy tomato sauce with spaghetti. I thought the sauce was a little too light and diluted, as the seafood made the sauce thiner. Could have been better. Fortunately, the seafood was fresh.
My partner and I decided to go for our anniversary at Changi Village Hotel. She did a wonderful job at surprising me with a staycation there and we were looking forward to going to La Cantina to try the Crab Meat Linguini, which is supposed to be their specialty. Having been to La Cantina before and having had a good experience, I was quite excited to try the food again. However when we got there, it was noticeable that La Cantina was not what it used to be before. The service was not great and worse, the food was abysmal. The clam chowder could barely be tasted - it was like drinking hot water with crushed potato. The linguini was way too creamy and the cheese cake looked like the staff had sat on it before serving us. We did not eat more than 2 bites out of it. I was astounded by that... I think that if you decide to go to La Cantina, think again or do not go to celebrate something special. You might regret it. As for us, we felt that $99 was way too much for what we experienced. I have paid way less for great Italian food. Finally, when we headed out of the restaurant to pay, I saw something that would make clean freaks shriek. The chef was preparing some cold cuts for a table and the plate looked like random pieces of meat had been dumped in it. It looked like the food that I used to prepare for my dog. I would be greatly annoyed if I had to pay for such a meal.
