Who says that you need to travel to the city for top-notch, drool-worthy Italian cuisine? Not us, that’s for sure, when we know there are culinary neighbourhood gems such as the one tucked away in Serangoon – Pietro Ristorante Italiano. This comfy eating spot has always astounded us with its solidly creative and delicious Italian fare, conjuring up hearty portions meant to be shared among friends.
At this mid-sized restaurant, which seats 56 people inside and 32 at its al fresco area, the crowd is raucous but never rowdy. Here, all your favourite classics are on the menu, from pizzas that are fired in a wood-burning oven, to creamy risotto and plates of pasta made with fresh pasta.
Carb-eaters would undoubtedly appreciate the fragrant Risotto di Mare e Zafferano, where risotto is cooked with a blend of prawns, clams, squid, and scallops in a saffron-based sauce. Meanwhile, Pietro kicks it old-school with tried-and-true recipes such as the Spaghetti alla Carbonara, so good it’ll even put a smile on the face of an Italian grandmother. And you can’t go wrong with the kid-friendly Cheese Pizza, served on a crispy thin crust.
Well-seasoned with well-loved dishes make a play here at Pietro Ristorante Italiano, ensuring that any meal here would be an excellent one.
Pietro has a luxurious touch to its interior decor as well, with a beautiful feature wall that blends into the alfresco dining area, making you will feel that you are in Italy!
