Ricciotti Pizza Pasta Grill serves Italian cuisines. Their simple approach to food allows the natural flavours of various ingredients to enhance the taste of his food thus making it a treat for the taste-buds.
Just to update my previous review of Riccioti at Riverwalk:
in the previous review i said the food was great but the service was patchy. Well, I'd like to amend that..
My family and I dined at Riccioti on New Year's Eve around 7pm, and the service this time was pretty impeccable!:) Largely because the previous manager wasn't around, the service this time was knowledgeable, quick, friendly and on-the-ball. it was definitely a nice surprise.
Kudos to the staff and especially the ever-smiling and helpful filipino server who took our orders etc...... job well done!
Riciotti Singapore has been around since 2004, bringing to the patrons nothing short of what a good family-oriented Italian restaurant should offer - good food, passion, tradition, laughter, love, joy and loud conversations. They created a complete Italian dining experience with modern art, music and contemporary design etc, embracing the Italian culture wholesomely. Besides that, Riciotti Singapore also organizes "Food for Good" initiatives which include fund-raising and other charitable events.
I had a Cod Fillet (SGD$32.00) - pan seared and luscious, served with sautéed spinach and potatoes, and topped with sun-dried tomatoes, thyme and wine sauce. I loved how the crackling skin parted easily under knifepoint to reveal snowy flesh that melted deliciously in the mouth, heightened by the sauce it was infused with.
Next, the Nizzarda Salad (SGD$19.00) was made up of mesclun, fresh tuna loin, quail eggs, green beans, cherry tomatoes, cucumber and anchovies topped with sherry dressing. I loved this refreshing starter because it contained most of my favorite foodstuff all in one!
Following that, we had the Supplì (SGD$15.00) - an Italian snack that was primarily fried risotto balls stuffed with beef ragu and mozarella cheese. These crispy balls stuffed with chewy rice were quickly snapped up as well.
Desserts came next. Carrot Cake (SGD$8.00) was moistened, with cinnamon and walnuts, topped with frosting. The cake was dense but not hard, sweet but not cloying; a rather good slice of carrot cake.

This is my family's favourite italian restaurant in singapore, which is a great recommendation given the fact that my husband is italian. The view here is gorgeous, as romantic as it can be, and the food is quite rustic and delicious (the dishes we've had anyway)- we love the fritto misto (fried mixed seafood), suppli (fried rice balls, somewhat like arancini), octopus and pizza cappriciosa. Love the new decor as well. Comapred to the old decor, it's alot more open and taseful and comfortable.
Depending on who you get, the service is sometimes patchy (although pleasant) though with the (i think, singaporean) manager being a bit of a blur sotong. Having said that, the servers are very friendly and the restaurant offers a truly lovely, alfresco dining experience for us and our kids everytime we go there.
(note to the manager though: please be more on the ball and get to know your dishes!)
I'd spend my friday evening patronising the restaurant based on a friend's recommendation. We entered the restaurant and quickly sat down to order. I've gotten myself an aglio olio with tiger prawn and my partner got a vongole vin blanc. When i received my aglio olio i notice the ends of the pasta are sticking to each other and most of it are in the same condition. I'm usually very accommodating but i had my first bite and the spaghetti was extremely hard so i asked for service from a what looks a managerial level employee for service but was given the wait hand signal as he was busy at the POS machine. He then came to the table and i'd told him what was wrong with the dish, he responded by saying "so you would prefer it more cooked?", i was astonished by his respond. I would prefer my dish to be properly cooked and by his response i'm starting to think that they have constantly be serving undercook pasta to their guest. My partner didn't enjoy her dish and she made a switch with me while waiting for them to redeliver the aglio olio. The clams were huge but some of it had started to go bad and you could tell from the soft and soggy texture. After about 10mins the tiger prawn aglio olio had came back, i was even more astonished than before, the pasta was watery, tasteless and you could tell that they reboil the existing pasta and serve it back to me. This is by far the worse tasting experience and standards I've received.
