As a New Yorker, I hold good pizza close to my heart. Good pizza is something that I’ve been looking for these past few months here in Singapore. I’ve tried a few different reputable Italian restaurants. I went to La Forketta in Dempsey Hill and Pizzeria Mozza in the Marina Bay Sands Mall. Pizzeria Mozza is a “celebrity” restaurant, since it is opened by Nancy Silverton, Mario Batali, and Joe Bastianich. I was particularly excited to check out Mozza, since I can depend on Mario Batali for good pizza, like in his restaurant Otto in NYC.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by the pizza at La Forketta that I ordered. It was prosciutto with rucola and cost $35! The other dishes that my friends ordered seemed to be delicious as well. The restaurant also had a nice ambience with high ceiling and nice decor. The only downside beside the expensive prices was the slow service.
Pizzeria Mozza had a completely different vibe inside than La Forketta. This was the “cheaper” side of the restaurant with wooden tables, noisier crowd and slightly cheaper prices for the same food served at Osteria Mozza. On the menu, they had a wide range of pizzas. I had trouble deciding on one, and ended up going with the pizza my waiter recommended, the Burrata, slow roasted tomato & Sicilian oregano pizza. This pizza was delicious and I would definitely order it again.
For dessert, I got the olive oil and peanut butter gelato! Both flavors were delicious and fresh. The service overall was pretty good. They even gave my friend an extra dish for service, because her dish came out a bit late. I will definitely be going back for more pizza soon!
