The idea of upscale restaurants used to terrify me. You could count on the food to be excellent, but everything around it—the presentation, posh interiors, and the pressure to behave all prim and proper—was somewhat distracting to me. I no longer have this affliction, but dining at Osteria Mozza reminded me of my preference for unpretentious restaurants that serve simple, homely food of the highest quality.

After closing its doors at Marina Bay Sands in 2018, Osteria Mozza has found a new home in Hilton Singapore Orchard. The Cal-Italian restaurant is co-owned by Nancy Silverton, the celebrated American chef, baker, and author known for sparking the artisan bread movement across the US in the nineties. Her focus on simple cooking with quality ingredients earned Osteria Mozza much acclaim, including a Michelin star for its original Los Angeles restaurant.
