My friend chose italian food for her birthday, and most italian restaurants closes quite early but Zafferano was one of the few that opens till late on a Friday, so that was how this venue was decided.

This place sounded romantic and cosy, but actually it was pretty noisy and vibrant. All eyes were on the bar area, right in the middle of the restaurant, where the lighting centerpiece is located.

Happy hour was till 8pm, and a glass of prosecco goes for $8++.

Tap water is available and the warm loaf of bread served pre-dinner, was really nice.

Ordered squid ink risotto, braised iberico pork cheeks, beef tenderloin with foie gras and boston lobster pilaf rice.

The portion for pork cheeks and beef tenderloin was rather small. Liked the pork cheeks. Tender meat and homely taste. Baby carrots were well-cooked. The beef was done medium rare, and the pan-fried goose liver was nicely quivery.

All of us liked the Boston lobster and the gratinated creme fresche sauce. Yums. The pilaf rice with raisin and pine nuts helped to fill us up. Otherwise, we'd still be hungry.

Service was generally good, but sometimes they're just too busy attending to other diners. Short-handed?

Review on restaurant week menu

We were there during restaurant week promotion. The service was great. Everyone was Super nice and gentle. We were served with restaurant week menu, hence not much of a choice. Love the cauliflower soup. Just don't expect too much for the view. We were seated by the window, but the view was blocked by the facade and planters.

Quality Italian food, lovely view, classy, and good service. Nothing to complain about.
 It is on the pricier side, but you are paying for a romantic atmosphere, roof-top views of SG's impressive skyline, professional service, and good food.

Went here for a leaving dinner. The service was nothing short of impeccable. They had messed up our order by not delivering it to us, but it was still reflected on the bill. Not only did they cancel it from the bill, they still delivered it to us FOC. Numerous "on the house" items which was a pleasant surprise. Amazing view, our waited told us that despite MBS having 57 floors (this is on the 43rd), we were still higher up from the sea level. This makes this restaurant an underrated one. Portions were a bit too small for the price in my eyes, but exploding with contemporary flavour and taste. Food was also served at a very dismal temperature. If you are expecting high temperature in your food do not come. From that aspect, their rating does fall. Service does make you want to come back again and again.
