“Great Food Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

I love this restaurant and always go back when I am in town. It is relatively new and maybe not well known as it is hidden behind the Palais Renaissance. Ambiance is lovely both for a dinner with friends, a romantic dinner or just a meal with the family. Outstanding food, GNOCCHI CULIGIARIS being a must and their Barolo selection is excellent. Highly recommended.

“Sopra is superb!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Having enjoyed a sumptuous dinner at 10 Claymore before, I looked forward to heading to Sopra Cucina & Bar located at 10 Claymore Road #01-02 Pan Pacific Hotel, Singapore 229540 and the number for reservation is 6884 6884. It is the first restaurant in Singapore to serve Sardinian cuisine (a type of Italian fare).

I was there for an event, but got to taste their cuisine, which was absolutely divine!

The interior is furnished in a sleek, contemporary and slightly rustic style, bringing out a very classic Italian flavor to it. A giant bar counter is nestled in front, and there is an assortment of bar counter seats, low dining tables or high tables for the diners to choose from. The ambience is cosy, comfortable and hearty.

Uniformed waitresses and waiters were circulating tables with trays of delicious canepes - so I helped myself to a skewer of Grilled Squid - finely sliced and utterly tasty (even succulent despite its chewy texture) amongst celery and olives. It was flavorful, needless to say, and a fine item from Sopra's main menu itself.

Next, the Fregola pasta (tasted like barley) and bouncy, fresh prawn cooked in a delicious gravy - another delicacy from Sopra's ala carte menu. Taste-wise, it was a good savoury-sweetish combination and the roasted semolina pasta were actually rather fun to chew, like pearls (in bubble teas).

The other food item that was being offered was a slice of thin-crust pizza - while the ingredients were not distinguishable, the pizza was crispy, and inducive with the sapid aroma of cheese. The crust was crispy as well, so this item (also from Sopra's menu) deserved some taste merits too.

“Singapore's take on Sardinian food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

The atmosphere here is unusual - a slightly Art Deco feel with Italian touches makes it a bit like stepping on to the set of a gangster film. The menu is basically Italian with some Sardinian highlights, such as 'culurgiones' which are potato and mint-filled pasta dumplings. They're interesting but a bit heavy for the climate. It helps to make a booking, lest you walk in and find yourself at a table near the pizza oven. If you want to be that warm while you eat, you may as well sit outside. All the plates of food looked very good and the tortellini in brodo was excellent. Reasonable Italian food close to Orchard Road.

“Hidden little gem at Orchard road”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Heard about this restaurant from a local friend. Always a preference for Italian food, we decided to give it a try. Its situated within the pan pacific hotel at orchard road. Easy parking but we had to ask the concierge where is the restaurant as its not in the main lobby area but at the back , facing Orchard tower. When we arrived , we were much impressed by the beautiful decor of the restaurant. Intricate tiled floors, as well as antiques adorned the place. There is even an antique postal stand which is used as a service station ! The atmosphere is classy and elegant with a contemporary feel. We had frigola , beef as well as burrata and carpaccio. The main courses were lovely. Really enjoyed the rich flavour of way the frigola was done. The beef was also well seasoned and cooked perfectly. The staff was attentive and helpful. The food was good. Lovely atmosphere. Beautiful restaurant. Will come back again.

A good place to relax after Shopping on Orchard Road, but service in outdoor area is sometimes lame.
