About Us

How it started

It began with hosting friends, family and neighbours where the joy of gathering and serving home cooked meals became a little more serious than the occasional weekend dinner. This turning point came after we visited Italy where we became thoroughly charmed by the idea that the best meal you get is from home. Case in point, the laborious task of folding Tortellini in Bologna likely stems from the sfoglina's (pasta matriarch) belief that family is certainly worth the effort!

Cucina Italiana

As it is said, the Italian culture is all about food and family (and fast cars!) where the home kitchen, and by extension, the dinner table is the fabric that binds both elements. The idea of an unpretentious and freshly prepared meal where conversations flow with wine is the basis of what we'd like to accomplish for those at Ben Fatto 95. With that, we believe in doing what works - which we reflect in our small but focused menu, built around humble ingredients and basic techniques done well. 

Our pasta program

Our fresh pasta initiative was pretty much born of necessity as it wasn't easy to find both quality and a variety of fresh pasta options here in Singapore. Since the best versions are those made at home, we decided to make our own. From there, we developed a fascination for the craft as it was clear that in order to appreciate its nuances, we had to focus on it.

We try to embrace tradition as much as possible with variations based on what we think is best suited to our audience and the produce we have available.
