Bf discovered this place as we were wandering around Far East Square, wondering what to have for dinner.
What caught his eye was the thin crust pizza that they had on a huge billboard outside the restaurant. He, being an Italian foodie, wanted to try it.
On our first visit (we’ve been there two other times since), the waiter recommended the parma ham pizza (which has tomato sauce, mozzarella, parma ham topped with rucola salad and shredded parmesan). I must say that the saltishness of the ham goes excellently well with the rucola salad and the thin crust pizza. The crust is biscuit like and you can hear the crunch when you bite into the pizza. Just be sure to catch the chef on a good day – he burnt the crust once. The pizza is generously topped with the rucola salad. At the cost of S$14.90 for an 8″ pizza (S$17.90 for 12″), it is suitable for 2 persons with small appetites to share. Otherwise, just order a whole pizza for yourself. I must declare that this pizza is the best value-for-money in Singapore. Surprisingly, this is not a chef-recommended dish.
We also tried the Risotto. Although the menu says their risotto is prepared with tomato sauce and seafood, we asked the waiter to inform the chef to prepare it with cream sauce and parmesan cheese instead. But they served us the one with tomato sauce and parmesan cheese instead. 😦 Bf says that the tomato sauce is too heavy and masked the taste of the parmesan cheese.
We also tried the Aglio Olio but we had the chef do it in the classic style (i.e. with no shrimps but with dressing of olive oil, garlic and chilli). I have to give this a thumbs down – the pasta turned out to be too dry and not spicy (even though we asked for spicy). At S$12.90 a plate, portion is good for 1 person only (with small appetite).
Overall, I give the parma ham pizza 10 thumbs up for value and quality (if the chef didn’t burn my crust) but a so-so rating for the rest of the food. But bf and I will continue visiting this place (because of the parma ham pizza) and we’ll continue to taste the other food items that they have on the menu. I have my eye on their tiramisu already – just hope that they don’t disappoint.
