4.6

A romantic restaurant for dinner in the heart of trendy Chinatown.

Oso daringly describes itself as a cultural and gastronomical embassy of Italy. But despite this pretentious introduction, in my opinion, Oso does live up to the hype.

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.

Ambience

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.

Service

The service was exceptional, as you would expect of a fine dining establishment.

Location

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.

Price advice

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.
