This restaurant is next to the pool. They serve at the pool. The service was prompt and friendly. We had pizza, which was very good. This is much better than bar food or food you might expect poolside. The view is beautiful. Highly recommended.

Back again after a while and found out that they have changed their menu. Loved their mushroom soup and so was quite disappointed. However, the new menu was still excellent and the carbonara was very delicious. Dolce Vita us probably our favourite place for Italian food in Singapore. Great service, delicious food, and great value for money.

We went for lunch with clients. Choose the set menu (you can change the dessert options) and presentation is top class (fitting a Michelin 2 restaurant). There is also a vegetarian option in set menu (you have to specific ask for it).

The restaurant has recently undergone a re furbishment and is more simpatico and physically welcoming as a result but the layoff has not altered the trajectory of the food outcomes, they continue to excel.

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
