Saw this recommended by ieatishootipost, and Cobby and I were such pizza lovers ever since our honeymoon trip to Rome, so how can we resist? So one saturday we headed down to the restaurant to check it out.
The place was located just opposite the REX cinema near Little India, so it was quite easy to locate. Just as described, they really use a wood fire oven for their pizza!
I like it that the atmosphere was very nice and casual. The restaurant is open air, and the kitchen staff were all dressed in bermudas and crocs. Even the head chef, which I guess is Italian? But with the long apron, they look as if they were wearing sarongs. :D
We weren't sure what to order, but they were famous for their imported buffalo cheese. But when we saw the cured beef with rocket and parmesean cheese, we couldn't resist ordering. It's my favourite!
There were so many choices of pizza, so we ended up ordering a spicy italian sausage pizza to share. We were quite surprised to see that they added chilli to the pizza.
The pizza was delicious! The crust was crispy on the outer skirts, chewy on the inside. The middle part was nice and cheesy, and the sausages were delicious. We weren't very enthusiastic about the chilli at 1st, but we found out that it actually taste quite good with the pizza. It's not chilli padi, but the bigger ones that was not too spicy, so it's like a spicy vegetable taste to complement the pizza. Not bad!
I wanted to order two pizza, but Hubby suggested otherwise. Thankfully, because we were quite full after that. Nonetheless, we had ordered dessert. Afterall, desserts belong to a whole different part of the stomach. :)
Hubby ordered Tiramisu, which I wasn't really into, so I can't judge whether it was good or bad. But Hubby said it was quite good, so there.
I ordered a warm chocolate cake, which was a little runny in the middle. But it was a little light for my taste. I like my warm chocolate cake rich and chocolatey! But it wasn't bad, just not up to my standards. :)
Overall a pretty good dining experience. The staff was nice and friendly, the price was not too expensive. Will definitely go back again!
