Great food (best pizzas in Singapore and perfectly prepared steak). Amazing service all night by Sara when we were there celebrating three people’s birthdays. Thanks so much for great recommendations on food & wines and attentive service through the evening - even helping to fix...a kitchen error promptly and with genuine dismay for the problem.More

If you like a cozy, vibrant and intimate than this is the place for you! The food was great and served in good company of refreshing drinks. Loved Robert's (our waiter for the evening) He is fun, chatty and brings excellance to creating a fun...ambiance.More

Made us wait for 10 minutes in the entrance despite my reservation. Food is very, very average, but what made me give a 1 out of 5: I asked what the vegetarian options were and was told I could get the bruschetta without ansjovis. They...brought it with ansjovis so I asked if I could get a new plate. They brought back the exact same plate but took off the ansjovis. The whole thing still tasted like it. Shows a lack of respect towards vegetarians.More

Great atmosphere. Came here for a friend's birthday and the food was delicious. The owners are from Italy and so you know the food is legit. Lots of options for food and drink. I had a salad, but my friends who had the meter long...pizza said it was delicious!More

Went to Publico recently with my friends. Dinner was nice and tasty, healthy portions and well seasoned dishes. Although the restaurant was not full, the service was a bit slow. Overall I recommend for everyone.

We were looking for a reasonable priced place for dinner with some local dishes. Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and our expectations were fulfilled and even overcome! We had no reservation, but we got a table for 2 immediately, the staff was really friendly, advised...us what beers to order depending on our taste and it was great. I’ve ordered Belgian steak and my husband had tuna steak, both perfectly cooked and simply delicious. We have also received a small couvert with bread and olives, which was also really nice. Overall we had a great experience and I can only recommend this place.More

Lovely restaurant with very friendly service and good food. You need to do reservation before hand to get a table there specially on weekends but the staff was friendly enough that they did make arrangements for us although we did not book it.
