Chicco Pasta Bar @ Holland Village - A Delicious New Addition Offering Homemade and Affordable Pasta


Following the successful launch of Chicco Pasta Bar on Telok Ayer Street, this popular pasta restaurant, known for offering top-quality homemade pasta at affordable prices, has opened a new outlet in Holland Village. I'm particularly excited about this new location as it's much closer to my home.

Duck and Parma Ham Toastie 4.2/5

We kicked off our meal with the Duck and Parma Ham Toastie ($16). This toasted sandwich is generously packed with confit duck, Parma ham, and manchego cheese. The result is an intense and satisfying rich and savoury flavour profile. However, the richness might be overwhelming for one person to finish all four pieces, making it ideal for sharing.

Gramigna 4/5


Chicco Pasta Bar is known for showcasing seven different types of pasta at any given time, many of which are unique shapes not commonly found in other restaurants. We started with the Gramigna ($20), a creamy dish tossed in pork ragù and finished with cheese shavings. The combination of the tender pasta and the savoury ragu creates a comforting and flavourful dish.

Spaghetti 4/5

Next, we tried the more familiar Spaghetti ($24), prepared aglio olio style, and paired it with squid, prawns, and clams. The flavours were well-balanced, making the dish delicious and satisfying. Notably, the texture of the pasta was softer compared to the usual al dente, providing a different but enjoyable experience.

Gigli 4.2/5

Another standout pasta dish was the Gigli ($18), cooked in truffle ricotta and field mushrooms. This dish offered a delightful play of textures, with the doughy pasta providing a lovely bite and the field mushrooms adding a contrasting texture. The addition of truffle elevated the dish with an earthy note, making it a favourite of the evening.

Iberico Pork Chop Parmigiana 4.2/5


During dinner service, Chicco Pasta Bar offers a variety of mains in addition to their pasta dishes. We opted for the Iberico Pork Chop Parmigiana ($30). The pork was perfectly cooked, tender, and juicy beneath a thin batter coat. It was dressed in a tangy tomato sauce and topped with cheese shavings, served with a side of French fries. The dish was a well-executed blend of flavours and textures.

Tiramisu 4.5/5

For dessert, we indulged in the Pistachio Tiramisu ($12). This twist on the classic tiramisu features a perfect balance of creamy coffee mascarpone and nutty pistachio. The flavours melded together beautifully, creating an utterly satisfying end to the meal.


Chicco Pasta Bar's new outlet in Holland Village lives up to the reputation of its original location, offering a delightful range of unique pasta dishes and Italian specialities. While some dishes may be rich and best shared, the overall experience is one of high-quality ingredients and well-crafted flavors. With its diverse menu and inviting atmosphere, Chicco Pasta Bar is a welcome addition to the vibrant dining scene in Holland Village.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
