Located 240 metres above the ground at the top floor of the Ocean Financial Centre along Singapore CBDâ€™s bustling Collyer Quay, Zafferano offers gastronomes a winning hybrid concept that consists of a contemporary restaurant and chic rooftop bar. Enjoy the panoramic 270-degree view as you dig in to Chef Roberto De Francoâ€™s neo Italian cuisine thatâ€™s a refreshed and modern version of the classics.
Appetisers like Uovo ($23), made with parmesan cream, poached organic egg, green asparagus & black truffle, the Foie Gras ($36), made as a terrine with figs, pistachio, vin santo and a side of toasted brioche, are a must-try. Another recommended appetizer is the Degustazione di Prosciutto ($45) of three tasting hams â€“ parma ham, san diele and pata negra bellota.
For mains, sink your teeth into the signature Filleto ($55), a pan-fried US prime-grade beef tenderloin with goose liver, mashed potato, vegetables and marsala sauce.
An Italian restaurant is nothing without its pasta offerings! Zafferanoâ€™s Astice ($45) with large paccheri pasta, Boston lobster and cherry tomatoes, as well as Risotto Zafferano ($30), a saffron-flavoured risotto made with creamy goose liver, quail leg confit and black truffle will truly hit the spot.
Those with a sweet tooth are far from forgotten! The Fragole ($18) is a unique strawberry soup with yogurt ice-cream and candied lemon. Chef De Franco also offers two kinds of Tiramisu, the classic, and the Tiramisu al Frutto della Passione, made with passion fruit, strawberry & mint sauce and crunchy caramel pistachios ($18).
Nothing goes better with Italian food, than a glass of wine. Oenophiles will be glad to know that Zafferano stocks over 200 labels and have over 30 Wines By The Glass for guests to explore.
Zafferanoâ€™s al fresco terrace is great for drinks and light bites with pulsating beats ringing through the air to accompany you as you catch the sunset at dusk or admire the glittering Marina Bay skyline at night.
