Previously known as Pontini, Singapore’s well-loved Italian restaurant at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel has undergone a transformation and is now operating as Grissini.

Grissini is a contemporary Italian grill restaurant specialising in premium meats and seafood prepared in a unique oven which combines a grill and oven in one, along with pastas, pizzas and classic favourites with a twist.

The restaurant’s unique oven is fired by charcoal and flavoured wood to bring out the aroma and texture of the ingredients. Food items such as wagyu ribeye, lamb rack, pork collar, octopus, cod and seabass are grilled whilst keeping moisture in, creating optimal outstanding flavours.

Embark on a gastronomic journey with an impressive charcuterie platter, signature white pizza, homemade pastas and an extensive selection of wines that you can pair with your meal. Indulge your senses as you revel the sight of chefs preparing the dishes at the open kitchen.

A spectacular finale to the meal would be house speciality Chef Antonio Mama’s tiramisu that is superbly executed with layers of savoiardi, mascarpone and zabaione cream enhanced with lovely citrus notes or the warm hazelnut chocolate tart served with a scoop of pistachio ice cream.

Epicurean Express Set Lunch from $28++

À la carte items from $12++ onwards

Profile of Grissini Chef


Genuine, fresh and natural. These are the three words that best define Italian Chef, Antonio Cocozza’s cuisine.

Chef Antonio who helms Grissini, hails from Naples, located on the Southern coast of Italy, where pizza was created. The affable and down-to-earth chef who graduated from Ippolito Cavalcanti has over 25 years of culinary experience and has honed his skills in renowned restaurants in the UK, Italy, Australia, Russia, Africa, China and Singapore.

Chef Antonio’s cooking style is innovative, yet genuine. He believes in marrying fresh and premium ingredients with natural herbs to create authentic Italian flavours with a difference. He infuses passion, dedication and finesse in his craft, whipping up delectable creations from his hometown. Many of his recipes are inspired by his mum who thought him the basics of cooking at a young age. His interest in cooking grew when he was a teenager and he decided to pursue a career as a chef. His passion led him to start a restaurant in Singapore a few years ago.

Over the years, Chef Antonio has experimented with many different cooking styles and has created a signature style of his own. He has curated a menu at Grissini which focuses on authentic pastas, pizzas, premium meats and seafood along with a twist on classic favourites.

Chef Antonio has an amicable and spontaneous personality which is reflected in his cuisine. He believes that fresh produce is the main essence of good food. “Originality is also important. A good chef can marry different ingredients and herbs to create various textures and flavours, however, there is no need to transform the dish too much.” he added.
