Fabulous pasta

The rigatoni ala amatriciana and wild boar pasta were simply excellent, couldn't have enough of it. We also liked the chocolate cake and the burratta. Service was very attentive and a great restaurant overall. Highly recommended.

We ordered the following:
- 2 dinner sets from Restaurant week (October 2014)

I like the Classic Poached Prawns Cocktail. It was fresh and crunchy. 
The Oven-Baked Oso's Classic "Crostata" was also great. Lovely Twig like design.
They have artistic ambience and is a great place to spend your night with your partner or friends.

Against what it could be, it's disappointing

Excellent location, excellent interior, excellent service.  But we came for Restaurant Week, and perhaps that is why the food was so disappointing, compared to our expectations for "the best Italian in Singapore".

 Prawns in a campari/orange sauce tasted like they came out of a frozen pack; the lettuce that went with it was a little pointless, and didn't look that healthy either. The caviar and cauliflower soup was really nothing special - I make a more vibrant soup at home with Cold Storage cauliflowers. The veal cheek did have a nice sauce, but there was little of it - too little for the cheek - although that was the most enjoyable course of the lot, despite unnamed, tasteless hard chips on the pumpkin. The milk tart was also enjoyable, although nothing to remember - great pastry cooked properly, decent chocolate, and some milk ice cream on top. I would have paid 40 for the lot; the more than 100 I had to fork out made me feel somewhat sad. The Italian meal a la carte I had at Concetto the night before was much better, and only cost 30 after tax and service.

I do think the main menu looked both better value, and considerably more interesting; perhaps the restaurant is simply adapting its RW menu to a broader audience (and improving its margin). No matter, I'm unlikely to return since at that price range there are so many truly great options in Singapore. 

The wine recommendations turned out well, and the wine list steps away from the well beaten paths of France and Australia as you would expect. Service was impeccable as, again, you would expect. The cheese "cupboard" is magnificent and perhaps another hint that a la carte is the way here.

A Masterpiece of a Restaurant

Oso is a chance to experience something done perfectly.  It's like flying suites on Singapore airlines or watching the Rolling Stones play.  There's a perfection and a fluidity to how well they do what they do that's seriously impressive.  Oso is one of those experiences and that makes it the best restaurant in Singapore.

A huge part of that experience comes down to staff that feels better trained than the employees at most multinationals.  These guys know their food and are passionate about what they're doing.  And with that comes a confidence and a courtesy that makes them extremely nice to be around.

The food is the best food I've had in Singapore and it's consistently been amazing each time we've been there, once every six weeks or so for the past 6 years.  We usually start with the mozzarella caprese and then move onto the stracci with wild boar before (when its available) the venison loin with red currant.  the filletto is also amazing.  you can't really go wrong here.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
