I've visited multiple times and have never walked away disappointed. Their set lunches offer amazing value which simply cannot be beat anywhere else in Singapore. If you like Japanese - Italian fusion, you have to eat here.
Dishes change frequently on promo menus, but so far I've had their kaarage salad, pork belly salad, cabonara pasta, sliders, gundam duck, beef cheek with polenta - everything was amazingly fresh, tasty and prepared with care under strict direction from an obviously highly talented chef. And their desserts were just as awesome - best matcha cake I've ever eaten, best panna cotta ever. Complimentary bread came in the form of hot cheesy pillow, just amazing with their special butter.
I have ZERO doubt everything else on the ala carte menu is just as good.
Wines were brilliant as well, with some really good house wines for below market prices. Obviously with their cocktail bar, there's a lot more variety - I haven't tried this but most definitely will.
Next, service - servers come and go, some guys don't seem to be there anymore, but every server so far has been really really good. Management clearly does a great job of pushing a good culture.
Nuvo is truly awesome in the current landscape of overpriced frozen rubbish and 20 dollar eggs cooked in water. With 3 course set lunches starting from 15 bucks to 40 buck prosecco brunches, there isn't any excuse not to try Chef Mark Richard's recipes.
The location is slightly obscure in Marina Square, but the actual location's ambience is brilliant and they've put a lot of investment into the theme - the quality really shows. There's a great outdoors deck for a round of drinks as well.
For god's sake, when there are restaurants like Nuvo around, why waste your hard earned money at the other lousy, middle-of-road restaurants around???? Walk through the dining section, walk past the noisy Japanese restaurant, walk past the buffet restaurant, walk past the overpriced Thai restaurant and walk past the extremely overpriced vietnamese restaurant and head straight for Nuvo.
Try the food now. Then tell your friends. Then thank me.
Must tries: everything
