Food and drink
Oso prides itself on traditional Italian cooking. The black truffle risotto was decadent and rich. My partner had the Ossobucco, which was juicy and tender and fell off the bone, accompanied by potato puree and lemon gremolata. The wine list is exceptional, probably because I’m a sucker for Italian vintages. There’s also a cheese room – a rarity in Singapore.
During lunchtime it’s full of suits, but the evening atmosphere is elegant and romantic. There are also a handful of intimate tables on the balcony, if you can bear the heat.
The service was exceptional, as you would expect of a fine dining establishment.
Oso is above Baretto Bar in the trendy Chinatown area, and it’s neighbours are boutique hotels and chic bars. Nearest MRT is Chinatown or Outram Park.
Main course fish and meat are roughly $34 while starters are over $20. But beware, the wine could blow your budget! There are set menus available for lunch too, which are reasonably priced at just over $30++, but that doesn’t include tea and coffee.
