Among the many eateries in Arab Street, you will find one serving up authentic Italian cuisine. The interior gives off an almost posh vibe with cosy lighting and wooden tables. Filled with endless pizza options, their menu is entirely laid out in Italian (with descriptions in English). To up the authenticity, they’re also known for their wood-fired pizzas which are baked the traditional way in a brick stone oven!
What I Had
For starters, I ordered a tasty Vellutata di Pomodoro ($10) which translates to Tomato Soup with fresh basil, served with warm bread.
Dealing with suppressed pizza cravings, I got the Peperoncini e Salsiccia ($24) which is basically a fennel sausage (similar to pepperoni) pizza with heaps of mozzarella and chilli. This surely lived up to the smokiness of a traditional wood-fire pizza which gave it the extra oomph in each bite.
Finally, for dessert, I got the Torta al Cioccolato ($12) which is a rich chocolate cake laced with Cointreau and accompanied with a smooth and heavenly Rum n Raisin Gelato.
What I Loved
Though a tad pricey, they do make up for it in terms of its sophisticated ambience. I was, unfortunately, unable to capture the kitchen which was, in fact, visible to diners through a glass pane which was so captivating to me since you could see the pizza being baked right before your eyes (giving me a live update as to whether or not my food was on its way)! If that doesn’t give you reason enough to visit, I also learnt that they only use freshly grown produce from their very own rooftop garden!
