Responding to some extremely lofty claims in recent advertising literature, we ventured to 'Pizzera Mozza' with expectations commensurately high. And why shouldn't we?
In a nutshell:
cocktails 4/5; food 2/5; service 2/5; ambience 3/5; value for money 1/5; over all 12/25 or 2.4/5.
The staff at the reception were efficient enough, if a little inattentive. Having not made a reservation we were happy to be offered 'bar seating'. Despite a proliferation of waiters and waitresses (I counted twelve in our area alone) there was some confusion over who was taking our order. We knew what we wanted so ordered everything together. The cocktails arrived in good order, and the raspberry Mojito was very good; not blown by the raspberry and a strong enough hint of mint. A 'complimentary' Parmesan cheese crisp accompanied the cocktails. We ordered a buffalo mozzarella with roasted tomatoes and a green pesto drizzle antipasti. The ingredients used for this were not of the highest quality, the mozzarella being quite bland and the tomatoes being flavour-free – only the freshest, organic products should be used for this. For the main, lasagna and a Parma ham, rocket and Parmesan pizza were ordered. The lasagna was presented in the manner of a school dinner: a collapsed, stratified cube with no accompaniments. The lasagna was extremely disappointing in every respect: I would question if the meat was fresh, and if the sauce was freshly made. The pizza arrived with no Parmesan. I was not offered black pepper. I asked for both – three times - and in the time it took for them to arrive, the pizza was cold. When the Parmesan did arrive it was ground Parmesan, not of good quality (I would guess from a packet). At this price point I should expect high quality, shaved Parmesan for my pizza.
And then the bill: SG$169. Wow! I can tell you what you are NOT paying for and that is quality of food and standard of service. I SUSPECT what you are paying for is 'location, location, location' – in that proportion.
Very disappointing, especially considering the hype! There are far better pizzas in town.
