Countless restaurants may be popping up around town claiming to offer authentic Italian fare, but Pasta Fresca Da Salvatore has stood the test of time, with 27 years of serving honest and hearty Italian fare under their belt. This is no surprise as their dishes are made with fresh imported ingredients from Italy and their dishes are also endorsed by the Health Promotion Board.
Pasta Fresca translates to “Fresh Pasta” and, staying true to its name, this heartwarming establishment offers the widest range of homemade fresh pasta, completely without preservatives and additives, in Singapore. From familiar favourites like Spaghetti and Linguine, to eclectic picks like Panzerotti, Conchiglie, and Pappardelle, there’s something for everyone. Choose from four pasta bases: cream, tomato, seafood, and olive oil. Seafood lovers should not miss the Polpa Di Granchio, a luscious sauce of soft crabmeat sauteed with garlic, crushed black pepper, cherry tomatoes, and white wine in tomato sauce. If you’re looking for something more decadent, the bestseller, Al Funghi E Salsiccia, features homemade Italian pork sausage and mushrooms sauteed in light cream.
An avid pizza fan? The selection here won’t disappoint you either. Our favourite was definitely the Rucola, Mozzarella Fresca E Pomodorini, the signature pizza topped with generous portions of cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella cheese, and fresh rucola. The Parma Ham was a smashing delight as well - who can resist the king of Italian Ham smothered all over a crusty pizza dough?
For a sweet ending, indulge in mouthwatering desserts like the Panna Cotta, because don’t kid yourself already, there’s always room for dessert! (Nov 2016)
“Who still remembers the TV jingle from this Italian restaurant’s old commercials? Though that may seem like an eon ago, this Italian chain continues to thrive with its dedication towards freshly-made pasta and heartfelt service. 27 years on, and Pasta Fresca stays fresh by constantly revamping its menu, with current mainstays including Vongole Alla Pescatora, Crespelle Al Funghi, and Risotto Al Frutti Di Mare.” -Honeycombers
“Pasta Fresca Da Salvatore may have recently given its Boat Quay outlet a fresh coat of paint, but its rustic, trattoria style remains the same. With 16 hand-made pastas and 21 accompanying sauces, you’ll never go bored with your pasta-mixing and matching.” -City Nomads
