Italian cooking has become synonymous with love, different forms of love ̶ romantic love, self-love, love for the family, and love for life. Maybe it’s the way Italians lovingly pass down traditional recipes from generation to generation, their high standards for freshness and authenticity, or their careful attention to the cooking process, not taking any shortcuts. Or maybe it’s the wine. Whatever it is, the most romantic cuisine is, undoubtedly, well-loved all over the world.

Singapore’s relationship with Italian cuisine is still in its early stages, beginning only in the late 1980s. The fascination started with one of Italy’s most classic dishes, spaghetti, until it blossomed into varieties of pasta and sauces, espresso, wines, and of course, gelato.

Here is a curated list of the 7 best Italian restaurants in Singapore [2022 review] for those days when you want to be filled with love   ̶   the gastronomic way.
