Rumour Has It These Are Your Best Bet For Some Authentic Italian Cuisine

What is your go-to comfort food? Mine has to be anything pasta-related! That carb-loaded goodness should be enjoyed in moderation but boy do they satisfy your soul after a long week of work.

This staple Italian food is rightfully enjoyed and savored worldwide and we are lucky that we have access to really authentic ones right here in Singapore. If you’re like me, or just really craving some authentic pasta, head down to these 7 Halal Italian restaurants for your fix!

This place needs no introduction. This is the most authentic Italian restaurant in Singapore that is suitable for Muslims. Ever since they open their doors a few years back, this place has been bustling with repeat customers. Yes, it’s that good. Indulge in their Signature Boston Lobster Fettucine or bite into some crispy Roman-style Margherita Pizza.

The east of Singapore is always more favored for some reason because we have access to more halal eateries. If you happen to be in the east, drop by Kucina Italian Restaurant! This authentic and hearty Italian restaurant is perfect for date nights and family dinners. They have an extensive menu boasting items that are usually found in authentic Italian restaurants, except they are all halal! Some must-try dishes here include their Gnocchi, Risotto, and here, you have a choice of making your own pizza!

This is my go-to place for special occasions! Prices run steep here but it is so worth it for the quality and portions. Have a go at their Signature Prawns and Crayfish Pasta, Brazen Beef, and Smoked Duck! Then wash it all down with some halal wine if you like. Guaranteed a fulfilling meal.
