Rubato is an Italian restaurant situated within a cluster of restaurants in the Bukit Timah residential area of Watten Estate. There are around 15 restaurants in this cluster, roughly half of which are Italian. So this is a good place to go if you feel like Italian but would like to browse before making your choice. Today, I had a quick lunch at Rubato Italian Kitchen which occupies the corner shop and is probably the outfit that first catches your eye as you drive by.
There are large areas of indoor and outdoor seating. The decor is clean and modern but softened with traditional wooden furntiure. I had the spaghetti vongole ($16.90) which was very well prepared. The pasta was done perfectly al dente and the clams were fresh and plentiful, Other than the slight pushiness of the server which one can easily overcome by being resolute in your choice, it was a delicious lunch in a pleasant restaurant. Here are random sections from the menu:
