ilLIDO AT THE CLIFF
One of the longstanding restaurants under chefrestaurateur Beppe de Vito’s ilLido Group, ilLido at the Cliff serves up modern Italian cuisine on a scenic hilltop near Sentosa’s Tanjong Beach. Al fresco dining at this restaurant allows one to take full advantage of expansive views of the South China Sea, while indoors, floor-to-ceiling windows let in lots of natural light, not to mention a view of the lush garden outside. Blue velvet-cushioned seats and walnut accents complete the regal, yet relaxed vibe.
Head chef Simone Fraternali has helmed the kitchen here since the restaurant relocated from Sentosa Golf Club in 2015. One of his iconic dishes is guinea fowl with foie gras and black truffle. This dish was inspired by afternoons spent at his grandmother’s house after school, and the comforting guinea fowl casserole she used to make during winter, served with a side of carrots and Marsala wine. Says chef Fraternali, “This dish brings back memories of that time, and reminds me why I had big dreams to become a chef, and to cook authentic Italian cuisine.”
