Procacci’s arrival in Singapore signals just how intent Singaporean restaurateurs are in elevating the gastronomy scene to a world-class stage. For Procacci has an illustrious history reaching back to 1885 as one of Florence’s oldest gourmet vendors of truffle based products. It originally had no intentions of expanding beyond Europe until a group of wine enthusiasts convinced it to make its presence here.
Located in the aptly-historical Custom House, Procacci serves up a gourmet Tuscan-inspired menu that doesn’t shy away from richness, some examples including truffled potato soup and a pasta laden with caviar and truffle oil. The decor is minimalist and stylish, utilising a contrasting blend of light and dark wood, black and white. Tall windows give a fine view of Marina Bay, although of course, the Al Fresco area is even better for this. Procacci has a set lunch menu that changes every two weeks, so have no fear of getting bored with their options.
