Faruq Senin •  May 25, 2018

When we think about iftar especially in our part of the world, the same thing always comes to mind – Malay or Indonesian cuisine and that means rice, rice and more rice. Well, have you ever thought of breaking your fast with Italian food?? Ah, pastas and pizzas – it’s hard to resist them and you’re really missing out if Italian cuisine is not in your list of iftar meals. Plus, did you know that the top Italian restaurant in Singapore is halal? That’s right! Muslim-owned Positano Risto tops the list of Italian restaurants in Singapore, according to TripAdvisor.

Let us first introduce you to one of Positano’s crowd favourites – Positano Mac and Cheese With Crabmeat ($16.95). Sprinkled with breadcrumbs and topped with a generous serving of crab meat, this dish definitely can’t get any better! This yummy cheesy goodness will be heaven for all you cheese lovers ?

Don’t miss out on their signature pizzas too. With a crispy thin crust handmade to perfection, Positano’s pizzas have just the right texture. We highly recommend their Positano Signature Calzone ($23.95). It’s so yummy you might even order a second serving!

This Ramadan, Positano is also having 2 multi-course iftar set menus, and with each set, you’ll get dates with tea or coffee, a choice of soup, main course and dessert. And they come at a special bundled price too, so it’s definitely worth every penny ?

Their Ramadan Set A ($34.95) lets you choose from a variety of scrumptious pastas such as their Pesto Chicken Linguini, Spaghetti Arabbiata or Fettucini Carbonara. With a creamy herb base that’s not too overwhelming, their Pesto Chicken Linguni is a must-try!

If you’re looking for something fancier, go for their Ramadan Set B ($39.95) where you can choose to savour their Lamb Shank with Fries (add $5). This mouth-watering dish is oven-baked to perfection and will surely melt in your mouth ?

Alternatively, you can also choose the newest thing on their menu – Pan Seared Chilli Lime Salmon. Biting into this appetising dish will give you a burst of flavours and it’s the ideal meal for those who are more health-conscious. So, if your Ramadan goal is to shed some calories, why not try this delectable treat?

Did we mention that Positano’s desserts are amazing too? Don’t leave the restaurant before indulging in their Oreo Lava Tower. With oreo, ice cream and chocolate lava cake stacked up, you won’t be able to resist this.

The best part about Positano is that their food items are very affordable too. If you’re getting ala carte dishes for iftar, you’ll be pleased to know that their pastas cost from just $12.95 while their pizzas cost from $16.95. That’s pretty much a steal if you ask us! And you probably can’t get such prices at other top Italian eateries in Singapore ?

Just 6 months into the Italian food scene in Singapore and Positano has already been making waves. So if you’ve never thought of eating Italian for iftar, perhaps it’s the time to try something new and with such delicious offerings, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t dine at Positano. And remember to bring your whole iftar gang too for a hearty meal you won’t forget ?
