Representing the central core of Italian culture, Publico is a gourmet destination playground which offers classic Italian cuisine and cocktails with a contemporary touch. Set along the Singapore River at The Quayside, the 389-seat restaurant & bar is designed by award-winning design firm from New York, AvroKO, and emanates the vibrancy of an Italian trattoria. A multi-concept dining destination with year-round festivities, Publico comprises a trio of Italian experiences under one roof - a dine-in or grab-n-go morning and daytime gourmet delicatessen, Publico Deli, which transforms in the evening to Marcello, Singaporeโ€™s first modern Italian cocktail bar alongside a dessert bar, as well as Publico Ristorante which has an adjoining bar and terrazzo by the river.

Situated along the Singapore River, this award-winning Italian restaurant boasts a multi-sensory culinary experience where you can enjoy amazing food and drinks, away from the bustle of city life.๐Ÿ˜Š

Hereโ€™s what we indulged inโ€ฆ๐Ÿคค
๐Ÿ‘‰Tartufata Woodfired Pizza - SGD30
black truffle, porcini mushrooms, smoked scamorza, mozzarella, truffle oil
๐Ÿ‘‰Truffle Cacio e Pepe - SGD32
creamy pecorino romano, crushed black pepper, freshly grated black truffle, housemade thick spaghetti
๐Ÿ‘‰Vodka Tortelli - SGD28
housemade tortelli pasta filled with roasted eggplant, tomato vodka sauce

Here at @publico_sg, the dough is made fresh everyday and each pizza is built-to-order from scratch before cooking in a traditional wood-fired oven. The Tartufata pizza we had was to die for and ready to impress your date!๐Ÿ˜

Came in pretty generous portions, their pastas were well-executed. If I had to pick a favourite, it would be their Truffle Cacio e Pepe, which was perfectly al dente and flavourful.๐Ÿ˜‹

Finally for their signature tiramisu, thumbs up man!๐Ÿ‘

Dessert: Publico Tiramisu

Itโ€™s one of the restaurants where the food is made with real delicate care, and with some of the best ingredients. Itโ€™s a near perfect experience and worth a special trip.


This was an enjoyable dish! The pasta texture was great and we loved the generous amounts of roasted onions. The tomato base was rich and tangy, which was pretty addictive. They were liberal with the pork guanciale too, which tasted similar to bacon, and was pretty standard.


We were intrigued by how the tiramisu was served in such a way that it resembled a potted plant, complete with a "bowl" that resembles a ceramic pot used for plants! Don't be misled though, as the dessert was a legit tiramisu, complete with the ladyfingers, mascarpone cheese, coffee liqueur and cookie crumbs! The ladyfingers were so soft and fluffy and we really loved the mix of coffee liqueur inside it, as it gave the dessert an alcoholic taste that wasn't too overpowering.

While the $15++ price tag may seem really steep, the serving size is decent enough for the dessert to be shared amongst two! Otherwise, the amount of tiramisu might get a little too cloying for one person. ๐Ÿ˜…


We decided to try something more unique for our meal at Publico - the Tartufata pizza! The pizza uses a base that is doughy but was relatively airy at the same time, so it doesn get too heavy. We totally loved the extensive amount of mozzarella cheese used for the pizza base, as well as the generous serving of truffle oil and black truffle used as this gave each slice of pizza a mouth-watering fragrance! The pizza had porcini mushrooms as its mainstay, which is great for us as we love mushrooms, although it may not be the best for those who love meat on their pizzas. ๐Ÿ˜…

The pizza costs $28++, which may be slightly steep for some, although we feel it's reasonable given that the pizza base was really delicious! ๐Ÿ˜‹

We visited Publico for our Valentine's meal and we loved the atmosphere there as it was beside the Singapore river and wonderful music was played throughout our meal. However, we were slightly disappointed that the restaurant removed its fairy lights! That being said, the restaurant was really crowded, even on a weekday evening, and you should book a table if you are planning to dine here!
