Buko Nero is a golden oldie, for over 18 years one of the favourite boutique Italian restaurants loved by locals and expats alike, and with reasonable prices, delicious menus and delightful service. Located in the Chinatown district on Tanjong Pagar Road, Buko Nero has stood the test of time. Husband-and-wife duo Oscar and Tracy Pasinato single-handedly run their 20-seat restaurant.

It’s a delight to witness Tracy ( pictured ) manoeuvres from kitchen to dining room, presenting her guests with elegant service while providing a sophisticated interpretation of dishes on the menu and if so required, suggested wine pairings. Chef Oscar’s ( pictured ) approach to food is to keep it as simple as possible, reflecting the influence of the two most important women in his life; his mother (mamma) and his Singaporean wife Tracy.

Try the spaghetti with spicy crab meat and prawns or the tau-kwa tower with sautéed vegetables and Asian dressing. You must book here. It’s highly unlikely you’ll snag a table as a walk-in. A sneaky word of advice though. If you call about 8:45pm of an evening and if you are in the area of Duxton Road or Tanjong Pagar, you may just get a table at the end of service for a late supper.

Buko Nero accepts reservations exactly one month in advance. So if you want a table on the 30th of June, call on the 30th of May. Contact Buko Nero by phone on +65 6324 6225 and they are located at 126 Tanjong Pagar Road, Singapore 088534 contact and location details here

We visited Buko Nero a while back and we had a great meal. There was a $50 - 4 course tasting menu which turned out to be ample servings for even my hungry appetite. The risotto was creamy yet not too moist and the tart was delicious for dessert. I would recommend this restaurant in a heartbeat

We were not blown away by the food. It was average. Quite a let down. Some items, like the tau kwa tower, were completely overpriced.
