. La Pizzaiola – food for love .

It was earlier this year when my aunt first introduced me to this tiny Italian restaurant tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood, just a stone’s throw away from my place. Located in the midst of an obscure row of shop houses occupied predominantly by old trading companies and laundry shop, one would have never imagine this location to be an ideal place to dine at a restaurant. Nonetheless, my interest to check out hidden gems on our red dot brought me to this little haunt, that is surprisingly a hit with many of the residents!

La Pizzaiola is the dream of 3 friends who want to bring people together to enjoy a hearty meal at affordable prices. Most of the mains (pizza and pasta) are under $20 so it is very easy on one’s pockets. I’ll definitely be making return visits to this Italian restaurant. 🙂

Fruiti di Mare
prawns, squids, mussels, tomatoes, mozzarella

Having to abstain from seafood of all sorts for the past 3 months, while I was in my halo vest, was a torture for a seafood lover like me. Now that I’m finally out of that “torture device”, I jumped at the opportunity to feast on the seafood pizza. Prawns and squids, some of my favourite seafood delights! At under $20 for a 12 inch pizza, it is value for money as there is a generous portion of ingredients although I would have preferred the crust to be slightly thinner and less chewy.

Carpaccio di Manzo
beef, Parmesan cheese, truffle oil, black truffle salsa

This melt-in-your mouth thinly sliced beef appetizer is best savored with a pinch of rocket and Parmesan cheese flakes as this combination offers a burst of  exquisite flavours.

Enjoy art while dining – For the art enthusiast in you

The art-and-food concept is receiving its fair share of hype lately. There is an increasing number of gallery-eateries that showcase a wide variety of artworks, which restaurant patrons can purchase after their meals. Some of these art works also make for interesting conversation for diners.

On the same note, La Pizzaiola has collaborated with Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) to feature aluminium tooling art pieces specially created by clients of MINDS in their restaurant. Most of these one-of-a-kind art pieces retail at a very affordable price tag of between $130 to $400. 🙂

  1. Oh I know this place! I love it that it’s really close to where we live and how it’s rarely packed.
