List of Pizza Places/Pizzerias in Singapore

Back in the day when I wasn’t so enlightened as to all things pizza, I only thought a single type of pizza existed, and that type of pizza was those served by large chain stores ubiquitous with pizza. Then came the thin-crust pizzas. And after I went to Italy, I realized how diverse the pizza culture can be. I think Americans and Italians have a different attitude towards pizza – one uses the ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ method, which is basically throw in as many ingredients as you possibly can, whereas the other believes in good quality, minimal ingredients. In fact, if you pick up any book on Italian pizza, you’ll realize that most of them recommend not more than 4 to 5 ingredients on the pizza, including the tomato sauce!


Speaking about American pizza, it is a misnomer in itself because as we know, there are three main types of pizza in America – the New York style ones which we are most familiar with, the California-style ones (typically with non-traditional ingredients like Thai) as well as the Chicago-style deep-dish pizza. I read somewhere that the prominence of pizza in American is probably due to the fact that there was a huge influx of Italians in America, bringing along with them their staples of pizza, which attests to why pizza is so popular and why the US has developed so many different types of pizza.


Now in Italy, there are two main camps as well – the Neapolitan pizza – that with a thick cornicone (edge or lip or what we term as the crust) and thin centre, and pizza elsewhere in Italy, typically with a thin crust. Within the different regions of Italy there are differences, but I won’t go into that today. Suffice to say, one of my favorite non-Neapolitan pizzas must be the pizza Bianca and the Roman-type pizza, which is a thin, crispy pizza which we term as thin-crust pizza here.

Anyway, this list has been long in the making. As most of my friends know, I’m rather OCD and you could say that I’m an information whore. I love collecting information and I love listing and categorizing them (yes, I’m weird that way). If only you can take a look at my drafts folder as well as my document folder, you’ll realize that I have tons of lists for everything, from things to bake (down to specific categories) to ramen places to try, etc. I’m also a tad distrustful of other people’s opinions, so when people list out ‘best [insert whatever food] in Singapore’ – you can say that I am more than a little doubtful, hence the need for me to personally try and evaluate their opinion. So this is what I have done. I have alluded to this list previously, and I’m working my way down the list, little by little. Over the past 2 years especially, after I returned from Italy having eaten the best pizzas in my life, I started a search for the best pizza in Singapore. I can honestly say that I don’t believe in ‘bests’, because best is a subjective benchmark, and best could be in terms of taste, ambience, or perhaps price. So what I’ve done is to set out the places that I’ve researched on and my brief comments on each, to let you do the deciding. You might find that there’s a certain push to a few restaurants, and that might be because some aspect of the restaurant appeals to me.

You might also note that I’ve left out Italian Restaurants which may serve pizzas on the menu, instead concentrating more on pizzerias which serve mainly pizza. This is not to say that pizza is the only thing they serve, because pizzerias in Singapore typically do serve sides, pasta, and perhaps a few desserts. You might also see a few Italian restaurants in the list, but their inclusion can only mean that the pizza is darn good or something else is ;p


Finally, you’ll realize that many pizzerias I’ve listed below are closed on Mondays, which might be because many pizzerias in Italy are also closed on Mondays, so leave your pizza eating escapades for another day! I’ve listed the pizzerias based on areas in Singapore, to help those looking for dining options. So if you’re still reading, do read on for the meaty stuff! :]

PS: in coming up with this list, I referred to lists from here and here and here, as well as numerous other food blogs whose reviews enticed me in one way or another to try the pizzas for myself.


Everywhere

1. Pizza Hut
Everyone who knows pizza in Singapore will know Pizza Hut. It’s what we grew up with. The best thing about PH in my opinion is that they have really good deals (check out their offers page), and their chicken wings and garlic bread are really not bad (from what I remember)! Lately, they’ve come up with many new menu additions like pasta (which have been reviewed to death) and their lunch offers are quite value for money too!
Plus point of course is that they’re available for delivery!

Address: Check out a whole comprehensive list here
Contact: 6235 3535 (who doesn’t remember their jingle!)
Opening hours: from 11am to 10pm daily.
Website: http://www.pizzahut.com.sg/
Price: From $18 up for a regular pizza


2. Sarpino’s Pizzeria
I’ve only had Sarpino’s a few times, and mostly because my teachers ordered them in as a treat for us and maybe because each time we were so happy and hungry, Sarpino’s tasted great. The best thing about them is that they are Halal-certified (not that the others aren’t), which is really important especially if you have Muslim friends, and that they have a variety of flavors, from the common pepperoni to more exotic selections like cheese macaroni pizza and chicken pesto pizza.

They also have deals like buy one get one free, and other freebies which come along with a minimum order. Delivery is also free for orders above $20, which is basically the equivalent of ordering 2 pizzas. This is perfect for a party, where you want variety and American-style comfort food.

Address: Check out the full list here
Contact: 6262 6767
Opening hours: from 11am to 10pm daily.
Website: http://www.sarpinos.com.sg/
Price: $18 up for a regular (10”) pizza.


3. Domino’s Pizza
I’m not sure if my chronology is right, but I think Domino’s appeared in Malaysia earlier than it did in Singapore, and that was where I got my first taste of it. I love the thick chewy crust of Domino’s, which is so typical of American-style pizza, particularly how not-oily their crust is, compared to their next-biggest competitor. My favorite is still the classic Pepperoni, although their chicken pizzas are pretty darn tasty too!

There’s no extra charges for delivery, and they almost always have promotions like 2 for $40 large pizzas, etc. Oh and don’t worry, they’re Halal too.

Address: Check out the full list here 
Contact: 6222 6333
Opening hours: from 1030am to 11pm daily.
Website: http://www.dominos.com.sg/
Price: $22 up for a regular (9”) pizza (without any promotion)



West
4. Cacio e Pepe
Cacio e pepe basically means cheese and pepper pasta in Italian, which is a rather common and popular Italian dish. This one’s pretty near my place in the West, but it’s really quite ‘ulu’ if you’re not a Westie. And even so, transport to that area is not exactly the best – you can only take several buses which are headed in that direction. Walking from Bukit Batok MRT is not advisable!

For this, I can do no better than direct you to a review by none other than Dr Leslie here. Like he said, their pasta vongole is superb and their pizza chockfull of ingredients and delicious!

Address: 3 Chu Lin Road, Singapore 669890.
Contact: 6760 3534
Opening hours: Lunch: 11.30am to 2.30pm, Dinner 6.00pm to 10.30pm. Closed on Mondays.
Website: http://www.cacioepepe.com.sg/
Price: $20 up for a pizza.


5. Pietrasanta
Pietrasanta is a place in Tuscany where I hope to go one day, and similarly, this restaurant is high up on my to-eat list. Judging from reviews from here, as well as their menu (with ubiquitous and authentic Italian names for the basic pizzas), I must say I have high hopes for this place!

Address: 5B Portsdown Road, #01-03, Singapore 138311
Contact: 64799521
Opening hours:
Website: http://www.ristorante-pietrasanta.com/
Price: $16.90 for a pizza magherita and up.


6. Rocky’s Pizza
Pretty much like other American pizza companies, they serve large pizzas with a lot of ingredients. Personal favorites include the 5 top economy, which allows you to choose 5 toppings of your choice, as well as Rocky’s mountain, when you just gotta have all the meat in the world you want (they use pepperoni, ham, sausage and chicken in one single pizza). You can also order slices and quarter servings, which is a plus for smaller eaters since the smallest pizza they serve is the 12” which is rather huge. They also deliver!

Address: Block 106 Clementi Street 12 (Sunset Way) #01-60 Singapore 120106
Contact: 6468 9188 / 6344 6868
Opening hours: Daily 11am to 10.30pm
Website: http://www.rockyspizza.com.sg/
Price: $16.50 up for a regular 12” pizza

Holland Village and Chip Bee Gardens


7. La Nonna
When I head down to Holland Village, this is my top choice for lunch, and one of my top few choices for dinner. La Nonna has a 50% off ala carte items for weekday lunches, which means that their $19 pizza goes for $9.50. Like WTH so cheap right?!?!!? I love love love their pizzas – so far none of them have disappointed me, and I have written a more detailed review here.

Do reserve if you don’t want to be disappointed. And if the weather’s nice, do sit outside, it makes for a good people-watching spot ;p

Address: 26 Lorong Mambong
, Holland Village and at 76 Namly Place.
Contact: +65 6468 1982
Opening hours: Everyday, 12-2.30pm, 6-10.30pm
Website: http://www.lanonna.sg/
Price: Pasta and Pizza starts at $19


8. Wala Wala Café Bar
Wala wala isn’t exactly famous for their pizza, but it’s a bar located on a corner of Holland Village. Music’s good on certain days, and they have Happy Hour daily till 9pm, which is a definite plus as beer goes super well with pizza. Their calamari rings are awesome, as is their Seafood Pizza. Their pizzas are the paper-thin type of pizzas, which some might think equals not too value for money. But beer, pizza, good music and good company, what more can you ask for?

PS: service tends to be a bit slow when the bar gets packed, so don’t go upstairs when you’re hungry and all you want is to eat because the place is packed out on popular nights and you’ll probably have to stand. Head downstairs where there are tables and you can eat in peace (without loud music if you so prefer).

Address: 31 Lorong Mambong, Holland Village, Singapore 277689
Contact: 6462 4288
Opening hours: Generally from 3pm to 2am daily (varies an hour or two depending on the day)
Website: http://www.imaginings.com.sg/ (it’s a lousy company website so don’t bother)
Price: $17 up for a pizza (I think).


9. Crust Pizza
Having had a number of good pizzas in Australia, I was very glad that Crust was opening in Singapore, with two outlets too! I haven’t been down myself to a local branch, but if the pizzas here in Singapore are as good as the ones in Australia, then they are not bad at all! Crust’s trademark is probably the rectangular size of their pizza, plus the fact that they have 10 different types of pizza sauce bases to go along with a million other varieties of toppings. You can have a whole-sized pizza, or you can go with a half-and-half, which is probably the best if you're just two people trying out one pizza. They deliver with a minimum order of $20! And if I'm not wrong, you can ask for a gluten-free option as well!

Address: 34B Lorong Mambong Singapore 27769 and 21R Upper Thomson Road, Singapore 574349
Contact: 64672224 (Holland Village) or 6456 1555 (Upper Thomson)
Opening hours: Check out the details here
Website: http://www.crustpizza.com.sg/
Price: $23 up for a 13”x8” pizza


10. Da Paolo Pizza Bar
Da Paolo is a rather big chain of Italian restaurants in Singapore – does Da Paolo Gastronomia sound familiar? It’s a deli selling takeaway pasta as well as an assortment of wine, and other gourmet items. Their pizza bar is located in Chip Bee Gardens, next to their restaurant and pastry shop. They have the buffalo mozzarella pizza, as well as a number of typical dolci (desserts) which go down perfect. Their pizzas are all thin-crusted – do check out these reviews for more information!

Address: 44 Jalan Merah Saga, Chip Bee Gardens, #01-46, Singapore 278116
Contact: 6479 6059
Opening hours: Tuesdays to Fridays from 11am – 2.30pm, 6pm-10.30pm, open from 9am -12pm on weekends. Closed on Mondays.
Website: http://www.dapaolo.com.sg/index.php
Price: $17 up for a margherita.


11. Pizza Bar da Donato
They serve the pizzas by the squares, as well as calzones and other flatbreads. Their pizza is a cross between the thick Napoli type crust and the American pizza crusts and is rather ‘bready’. However, their sauces and toppings are pretty good, and they have a wide variety of them. My impression of it remains pretty good, even though the last time I ate it was probably 2-3 years ago, and I was ravenous then. The full scale restaurant at Ghim Moh also sells pasta, and other desserts. See here for a dated review.

Address: Block 21, Ghim Moh Road, #01-213.
Contact: 6219 7562/6462 0838/6465 1338
Opening hours: 10.30am to 11pm, Tuesdays to Sundays, closed on Mondays.
Website: none
Price: $6 up per slice

They also have a ‘taglio’ or hole in the wall, at 8 Sixth Avenue, Singapore 276473 selling slices of pizzas.


Central

Around Bukit Timah

12. A3 Bistro & Bar
Located next to Bar Bar (this pub selling pretty good beers and burgers, etc.), this is a relatively new place around the area. There is a laidback, casual vibe to the place, and they sell pizzas, as well as pasta and other mains like seafood and other meats. Their Spinach Pizza is pretty unique – it is not vegetarian and contains sautéed spinach along with salami and egg together with the usual tomato and cheese toppings. They also run happy hour promotion for their beers, which is lovely when eaten with their pizza.

Address: 881 Bukit Timah Road, Singapore 279893
Contact: 6466 4130
Opening hours: Tuesday to Friday: 1130am – 2.30pm, 5pm – 10.30pm;
Saturday, Sunday & PH: 10am – 10.30pm.
Closed on Mondays.
Website: None
Price: $10-15


13. Peperoni Pizzeria
This is the type of pizzeria you’d want to go to with your family or with a large group of friends. The sole reason being the large pizza is HUGE – and really value for money if you share the cost between say, 8 friends. This pizzeria is casual, and has no GST or service charge, which is great, because it's an ideal hangout for students studying in the area, especially the Binjai Park branch.

Address: 7 Binjai Park, Singapore 589821 and 6 Greenwood Avenue 289195 (behind NJC) and 95 Frankel Avenue, Singapore 458221
Contact: 6463 7800, 6465 6556
Opening hours: Mondays to Sundays, 11am to 10.30pm
Website: http://www.facebook.com/peperonipizzeria
Price: $19 for a 9" pizza and $50 for a XXL 21" pizza!



14. Sole Pomodoro Pizzeria
Located near Little India, this pizzeria is one of my favorites! I love the atmosphere there, and their pizzas are certaintly one of the  best I've eaten in Singapore. Read more about Sole Pomodoro from my review here.

Address: 12/21 Mackenzie Road #01-01, Singapore 228678
Contact: 68843671
Opening hours: Opens 12pm till 11pm (Closed on Mondays)
Website: http://www.solepomodoro.com/
Price: $15.90 and up for a Margherita


15. Oishi Pizza
I’ve always believed that Japanese people excel at whatever they set their mind to – L’Operetta is an example of the Japanese excelling and same with Japanese patissiers with French pastries. Oishi pizzas have lots of Japanese choices, such as Teriyaki Delight and Unagi and Wasabi flavor combinations. They also do free home delivery for a purchase of $25 and up, which is essentially two large pizzas. Pretty decent prices for unique pizzas :]

Address: 10 Jalan Serene #02-12 Serene Centre
Contact: 6555 5656
Opening hours: Tuesdays to Sundays, 11am to 8pm
Website: http://www.oishipizza.com/
Price: $15.90 for a 10" pizza.


Town

16. Tomato's Pizza
I've never eaten from Tomato's, even though I always smell it when I'm inside Cold Storage at Great World City. They have quite a variety of pizzas, and honestly, they smell very very good, and I've seen a great number of expatriates purchasing from them before. They deliver for free upon purchase of $40 and you can even design your own Neapolitan pizza!

Address: 1 Kim Seng Promenade, Great World City Mall, #B1-18/19, Singapore 237994
Contact: 6733 9719/ 6733 9729
Opening hours: Everyday, 10am-10pm
Website: http://www.tomatos.com.sg/index.html
Price: $22 up for a regular 12" pizza


17. Modesto's
I have only eaten once at Modesto's, on the terrace, and that was a long long time ago, before they revamped the entire place. So I honestly have no vivid memories of Modesto's. The restaurant at Orchard is their flagship and they have a huge branch over at Vivo. Do check out this review if you're interested. They have pretty good offers for lunch so it's a good time to try them during lunch! The foccaccia bread is not bad!

Address: 1 Tanglin Road #01-09/10 Orchard Parade Hotel, Singapore 247905. Also at Vivo and Mt. Elizabeth.
Contact: 6235 7808
Opening hours: Daily, 12pm till past midnight.
Website: http://www.modestos.com.sg/
Price: $18.50 for a regular Margherita


18. California Pizza Kitchen
Conveniently located in Orchard road, California Pizza Kitchen is a good place to go for American style thick crust pizzas. Check out Brad's review here. Having tried California Pizza Kitchen in other countries, I'm not too impressed with it, so I haven't bothered trying the one in Singapore. That said, it is perhaps one of the few pizza choices in Orchard belt (closer to the start of Orchard Road and Tanglin) when you have a craving for Italian food and pasta.

Address: 583 Orchard Road #01-42
Forum The Shopping Mall, Singapore, 238884
Contact: 6836 0110
Opening hours: Daily, 11.30am to 11.30pm
Website: http://www.cpk.com/locations/singapore-forum/
Price: $20 odd for a regular pizza


19. Skinny Pizza
I am not a fan of skinny thin pizzas, so I haven't had the impetus to want to visit. Nevertheless, they do have some unique flavours like squid ink, english breakfast and truffled mushroom which looks quite promising! Check out these reviews for more!

Address: At Wheelock, House, Raffles City and Great World City
Contact: Check here
Opening hours: Generally from 11 pm to 10pm, although the House outlet opens to midnight.
Website: http://www.skinnypizza.com.sg/
Price: Pizzas start from $21


20. The Pizza Place
This little pizzeria might get overlooked by most because it’s tucked in a little corner in Raffles City, slightly behind Skinny Pizza. If memory serves me right, they used to have a prominent place in the basement of Raffles City, prior to the extension renovation a few years ago. I still remember my high school friends and I would make that trip down to enjoy their pepperoni, sausage and BBQ flavored pizzas, which (at that time) used really good gourmet pepperoni and awesome sauces. They serve the typical American thick-crusted pizza with the usual sides like hot wings, chips, etc. I just went back recently to relieve old memories and either standards have dropped or my tastes have elevated. Their pizzas are so-so, but really, nothing much to write home about. It's pretty pricey (about $15 and above) for a decently-topped pizza and it's probably just enough to serve two not-so-ravenous people. Service is pretty quick, but seatings limited and you can’t really have a private conversation because tables are located very close to one another.

Good thing is of course, that this place has no GST and no service charge. This means what you see is what you get :] And for Muslim readers, they don't use pork or lard in their pizzas, so this could be a suitable place to head to.

Address: 252 North Bridge Road, Raffles City Shopping Centre, B1-16, Singapore 179103
Contact: 6336 1979
Opening hours: 10am to 10pm daily
Website: None
Price: around $15 for a personal sized pizza


21. OChre Italian Restaurant
I have been eyeing this place for a long long time now, because of reviews by Charlene and Brad among others, but have yet to find the company and time to head down for a pizza buffet. Rest assured this is on my to-do list this year! This is not exactly a pizzeria but more of an Italian Restaurant which happens to have a pizza buffet and good Italian food. They have a 1-for-1 promotion on weekdays and there's no service charge too!

Address: 181 Orchard Road, #11-03/04 Orchard Central
Contact: 6634 0423
Opening hours: 11.30am to 3pm, 5.30pm to 11pm, daily.
Website: http://www.ochreitalian.com.sg/
Price: $16 up for a margherita


Beyond Dhoby Ghaut


22. Timbre pizza
Many university students (especially those from SMU) are no stranger to Timbre. What other place can you go for good music and good food? I've to say again that I'm not a fan of paper thin pizzas, but Timbre's pizzas are really not bad. I've probably tried almost all their pizzas - but roasted duck and the shrimp/seafood pizza is especially nice. And don't forget to order fries and calamari rings on the side too :]

Address: Timbre@ Art House, @ substation, @ old school
Contact: 6336 3386, 6338 8030, 6338 0800
Opening hours: from 8pm till late.
Website: http://www.timbregroup.asia/timbresg/main.asp
Price: $18 up for a pizza


23. Gattopardo
Not exactly a pizzeria again, but Gattopardo is one of the restaurants under the Garibaldi group of restaurants in Singapore, and is one of the more upscale Italian restaurants in Singapore which serve good Italian fare and offer good service. In fact, this is one of my online foodie friend, Jacob's favorite place! I've only been there during Restaurant Week, so my experience probably isn't the most accurate since they serve a fixed menu. But suffice to say, their pasta is homemade, their pizza is thick and doughy, their olive oil is pure and yummy and prices are not too exorbitant! Plus a free flow of yummy homemade bread is a definite plus! :] The only drawback in my opinion, is that it's not readily accessible by public transport and you'll have to drive up to Fort Canning Park to enjoy Gattopardo. That said, it means that your dining experience will be all the more unique and quiet!

Address: Hotel Fort Canning, 11 Canning Walk
Contact: 6338 5498
Opening hours: Daily,12pm–3pm, 6.30pm–10.30pm
Website: http://www.gattopardo.com.sg/
Price: $18 up for a pizza


24. Pizza Memoirs
You would probably have walked past this place if you love soaking up the nightlife over at Clarke Quay. I've seen the place, but have yet to eat there - I've seen a number of reviews and the squid ink dough looks especially enticing! You can check out a review here!

Address: 18 Mohamed Sultan Road, The Foundry, Singapore 238967
Contact: 6733 3102
Opening hours: Sundays to Thursdays, 11am - 11pm, Fridays and Saturdays, 11am - 2am
Website: http://www.pizzamemoirs.com.sg
Price: From $15 for a 9" pizza

25. Verve Pizza 
What’s superb about Verve is that it is for the health conscious too! Their senza pizzas are all less than 500 calories, but ingredients are still plentiful! They serve a thin-crusted, Neapolitan pizza (but minus the thick crust).

The branch at Clarke Quay opens till 4am on certain weekdays, and is a superb place if you want to indulge in some gelato and pizza in between drinking and partying.

Address: at Clarke Quay, Marina Bay and one-north
Contact: see website for details.
Opening hours: Opening times vary between outlets. The Clarke Quay and Marina Bay branches open till late (after 2am).
Price: $27 up.


26. Spizza
Spizza has one of the largest varieties of pizzas - their list starts from A and ends at X! They have pretty good lunchtime and outlet promotions which vary from month to month, and they also have new pizzas out every month or so. January's special was a 'kung pao chicken with dried chilli and cashew nuts' tomato based pizza for the festive new year :] You can also check out a 2011 review here.

Address: Outlets at Club Street, East Coast, Bukit Timah and Jalan Kayu. Takeaway at Havelock Road and Pandan Loop
Contact: See here for respective contacts. Call 6377 7773 for delivery!
Opening hours: 12pm -2.30pm, 6pm-10.30pm daily.
Website: http://www.spizza.sg/
Price: 12" pizza starts from $19


27. Pizzeria Mozza
This is actually number one on my to-go-to list at the moment, but I’m still waiting for that special occasion to go down and have a complete meal with buccati mozzarella and proper pizza. Hopefully, I won’t be disappointed. Do stay tuned for a write up!
In between writing this and posting this, I managed to find that special occasion to head down and have a good meal at Mozza. Sadly enough, I wasn't too impressed with their pizzas. Admittedly, their mozzarella used was good, but the tomato sauce was just meh and truth to be told, I much prefer the neapolitan-style crust than the NY style that ... makes. However, the crostinis? I had for pre-dinner was definitely delicious, and with the barest of seasoning and herbs, they were exquisite. The meatballs also saved the day.

Address: Marina Bay Sands, #B1-42-46, 2 Bayfront Ave, Singapore 018972
Contact: 66888522
Opening hours: Open for lunch on Fri and Sat, Open for dinner daily
Website: http://www.pizzeriamozza.com/singapore/dinner.cfm
Price: $16 up for the cheapest pizza.


28. South Coast Bistro and Bar
This is yet another place on my to-go-to list, so I can do no better than refer you to one of my favorite food blogs – Camemberu, who has done a wonderful review on it. I love how laidback and casual the interior looks, and I’m quite eager to try out their tasting plates which all come with their homemade sourdough bread! Do check out their website – it looks awesome and so Aussie!

Address: 10 Bayfront Ave
#L1-85 The Shoppes @ Marina Bay Sands

Price: $22 up for the basic pepperoni.

Tanjong Pagar area

29. Pizzeria L'Operetta
Ever since I found out that they were Singapore’s first and perhaps only VPN-certified pizza, I’ve been dying to get there. And I did. I went to the ICON village branch on a weekend and tried the Pizza Bianca (which was superb) and the margherita, and I’ve to say that although the crust won me over, their tomato sauce didn’t. I found it too sour and lacking in the typical tomato ‘smoothness’, but everything else hit the spot. They also have pretty good lunch promotions (1-for-1 = cheap pizza!) and pizzas get served within minutes because of the requirement that VPN pizzas can only take 90 seconds in the oven! (of course you have to include time for the chef to actually roll out and top the pizza). Their express lunch sets are really cheap too, at $20++ for a salad, pizza and drink :] Do check out my more detailed review here!

Address: 12 Gopeng Street, ICON Village, #01-78-81 (nearest MRT is Tanjong Pagar).
Contact: 64382482
Opening hours: Open for lunch and dinner daily
Website: http://www.operetta.sg/
Price: $18 up for a Magherita

Also fully owned by them, the Enoteca L’Operetta is a full-scale Italian restaurant at 78, 79 Boat Quay Singapore 049866, selling main courses, etc, as well as a smaller range of pizzas.


30. Etna Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria
Opened by Sicilians, the Etna has a typical Italian feel to the place, albeit more high class (the usual checkered tablecloth is slightly hidden by the white layered on top of it). They serve baskets of warm bread, which you can order for $4-$9, and it’s a delight to have! They sell Pizza Biancas (mozzarella-based pizzas) and the usual tomato based pizzas, and they are pretty well known for their white pizzas. Also interesting is the prominent use of pistachios in many of the dishes – on the pizza, in their famous pistachio tiramisu, etc. This is no surprise of course, since Sicilian pistachios are perhaps one of the yummiest pistachios you can have!

Do note that the Etna that was listed as one of the Top 10 pizzerias in Singapore in the Epicure magazine is the outlet at Duxton and not the one in Siglap, because I’ve read that there are some variations in quality of the pizza.

Address: 49/50 Duxton Road and 110 Upper East Coast Road

Price: $18 for the cheapest pizza.


31. Mont Calzone Pizza & Pasta
Catering mainly to the office crowd, Mont Calzone is a pretty decent place to have your pizza and pasta – they sell basic pastas at $13.90, with a choice of spaghetti, linguine or penne. You can add $3 if you want the more exotic ravioli or tortellini. They also have a huge variety of thin-crust pizzas, and you can make all pizzas into calzones or if you wish, make a 2-in-1 pizza just by adding $3. They probably have more than 20 pizza selections, but my advice is to stick to the more basic ones because at $15.90 for a black truffle pizza, the black truffle didn’t taste that good, whereas the basic Hawaiian pizza was loaded with ingredients. Their salmon and parma ham pizzas are not bad though!

32. Da Mario Pizzeria
I’ve read so many good reviews about this place, which makes me sad to give it a lousy review. The 2 pizzas I ordered, a Funghi and the Bianca pizza were honestly, quite bad. My siblings who were dining with me agreed – in fact, Domino’s tasted much better. The tomato paste was bland, and the mushrooms were the tinned types. Pizza Bianca should have good quality cheese topped, and this was just plain. I honestly had to use Tabasco sauce to make the pizza a semblance of tasty. I had high expectations for this place, which makes me doubly disappointed really.

Address: 60 Robertson Quay #01-05/06, The Quayside, Singapore 238252

Price: from $9 for a pizza Bianca and $14 for a margherita.


33. Bella Pizza
If you head down to Robertson Quay, don't get confused if you see two outlets, one called Bella Pasta and the other, Bella Pizza along one stretch of shops. Both are essentially the same and serve essentially the same things. Do head to Bella Pizza for the greatest variety of pizza though. Word of warning - Bella Pizza is usually very very packed during the weekends, so please make a reservation before heading down or you'll have to wait more than an hour to get seated :/ You can also state if you want an inside or outside seat when reserving - the outside's good if it's late at night and the sky is clear - the river breeze would be lovely. If not, book an inside seat with air-con! ;p

Do check out my more detailed review here  - this is the second of my favorite pizza places in Singapore with good delicious pizzas and good atmosphere.

34. Boston Pizza Company
Again, typical American-type pizzas, but they also offer other things like clam chowder and pasta, which is not too bad. They cater mostly to the office crowd in the area, and the best thing about their pizzas is that they have a rather wide variety of pizzas which are vegetarian.

35. Extra Virgin Pizza
This is a pretty new place, and I first got to read about it from Justin's blog. The pizzas are pretty good - I didn't have a chance to try the pistachio pizza since my dining partners didn't want them - but we went with Margherita with the mozzarella di buffala and the meatball pizza. I love the high seats and if you get there after 7pm, the breeze is awesome. They have very good service too - after we were seated and the staff saw that we each carried handbags, they promptly offered us bag hooks! +1 for good service!

The pizzas are very somewhat of a cross between Neapolitan and Roman styles - not too thin crust and not too thick either. I love the large cornicones though - the blisters on the pizza prove that they are done in a wood fired oven :] The mozzarella was not the most tasty I've eaten, but I've gotta say that the tomato paste that they use is pretty good - not too sweet and not too sour! And if you get there between 5-8pm, there's Happy Hour! They have Kirin beer which is pretty good with the pizza :] I can honestly say that this ranks among my top 5 favorites!!

North

36. Buono Pizza
I’m not exactly sure if this place is still there but from what I’ve searched on the internet, this place sells good pizza and is a quaint little restaurant.

Address: Serangoon Garden Estate, 27 Lichfield Road
Contact: 6733 5646
Opening hours: Daily: 12pm–2pm, 6pm–10pm
Website: None.

PS: As you can guess, I don't really travel to the North that much, so my list of pizza places there are considerably limited. Do let me know if there's any nice pizza places there you wish to include in this list!


East

37. 12-inch Pizza and Records
Yet another venture by the Timbre Group, you can expect pizzas of the same quality over at 12-inch. I've again only read reviews - especially Justin's review and it does look pretty good! Like the namesake, it sells 12 inch pizzas named after song titles and group names. Some names include "Goodfellas" (which probably only locals will know) and The Cranbellies (presumably after The Cranberries). Some pizzas I've my eye on is the pear and gorgonzola as well as the black pepper crab. Even their  menu is a 12-inch record! This is definitely something I'm KIVing when I'm in the vicinity!
Address: 70 Jellicoe Road, V Hotel, Level 4 (near Lavender MRT)
Contact: 6296 1622 or 6352 6266 (delivery)
Opening hours: Daily: 12pm - 2.30pm, 6pm to 10pm.
Website: www.facebook.com/12inchPizzas
Price: $22 up for a pizza


38. Bruno’s Pizzeria & Grill
I’m not really an ‘eastie’, so what I’ve tried in the East of Singapore is really limited. Do check out reviews from here and here and here! All of them have favourable reviews of the place!

Address: 338 Tanjong Katong Road
Contact: 6440 4525
Opening hours: Tues to Sun: 12 noon – 2.30pm, 6 pm – 10.30 pm
Website: None
Price: $18 up


39. Al Forno
I know this isn’t exactly a pizzeria but more of an Italian restaurant but it is a restaurant opened by Napolis and I thought it was worth highlighting. For those staying in the East, they do free delivery for orders above $40, which is pretty good if you’re too lazy to get out of the house and you want a proper, delicious Italian meal with primo plat and carne, etc.

Oh and pizza’s good too!

Address: 400 East Coast Road Singapore 428996
Contact: 6348 8781, delivery hotline 63488861

Price: $20 up for a margherita


40. Pizza Capers
For the rare few people in Singapore who are gluten-free – pizza capers is where you want to have your pizza from! They not only have kid sized pizzas, they also have gluten free 10” pizzas, which cost a slight fraction more than the large 12”. FYI, their kid sized gluten free pizzas only cost $7.95! What’s more, they do delivery (though to a limited area) as well, which is perfect for parties. They also have a great variety of pizzas, as well as pasta and risotto!

Address: 226 East Coast Road Singapore 428923
Contact: 62626262
Opening hours: 10.30am to 10.30pm daily.
Website: http://www.pizzacapers.com.sg/store-location.aspx
Price: $16.95 up for a regular 9” pizza.


41. Pizza Goemon (Yomenya Goemon)
This is yet another Japanese pizza place - what is it about Japanese and pizzas in Singapore? Anyway, I've only seen this and have only tried their pasta menu, which is pretty good and value for money btw. They also have pretty good set deals for lunch at not-too-exorbitant prices!

Address: 112@Katong and Changi City Point.
Contact: 6636 3692 (Katong)
Opening hours: 11.30am - 9.30pm daily
Website: http://www.n-rs.com.sg/

And that ends off my list of pizza places and pizzerias! Do let me know if you check out any of them and have anything to say about them, especially those places which I've not been to because I would love to hear reviews on them for me to better decide which to head to first :]

Wow, this is really a detail write up of all pizzas. By the way, i going to MEL but not SYD, too bad not able to try the famous roll. Ok, going to depart now.,,

travellingfoodies said...

what a list!!!!

Spizza has an outlet along East Coast Road as well, just a few units down from Awfully Chocolate. Been there lately and we enjoyed the pizza!

I'm generally not a pizza junkie but we love the "Peking Duck" from California PIzza Kitchen. "Milan" is not bad too.

Actually a lot of smaller joints like NYDC also have pizza in their menu. They have one with Bratwurst sausages in it. Not bad as well!

Nami | Just One Cookbook said...

Wow - I'm really impressed by your detailed list of pizza restaurant review!!! Japan has our own (strange) Japanized pizza too. Like one with mochi on it etc. I guess Japanese still like Japanese flavor even on pizza. But there are lots of great authentic Italian or American style pizzeria as well. Great job on making this list - I know people in Singapore will appreciate this list!

lena said...

wow, looking at the long list here, you must be such a huge pizza lover!I always love the thinner crust pizza. Here at my town, we cont have many outlets just selling pizza alone..now come to think about it, probably less than 10.
