Good Pizza And Pasta

Spizza may not serve the best pizza in Singapore (that would have to be Pepperoni Pizza), but it comes close. Its specialty thin-crusted wood-fired pizza won me over from day one.

I especially love Isabella - parma ham and rucola salad lying atop a scrumptious bed of mozzarella cheese and rich tomato paste. I’d recommend die-hard cheese lovers to try Laura, which is what Spizza calls their Quattro Formaggi, a pizza with four different types of cheeses.

Another winner is their gnocchi, which is very sinful with all that ham and cream sauce, but worth all of that hundreds of calories. If you like pizza or gnocchi, this should be on your bucket list.

Authentic pizzas which taste too good for delivery”

It was one of those nights when there is literally nothing in the house to eat. It was pretty much plain rice or order some food, which for a pair of vegans is easier said than done. Luckily, it turns out that Spizza has a cheese-free pizza, which was rapidly ordered with extra spinach on top. It was a bit pricey, but frankly I was so hungry I would have given my kidney for some dinner so $20 each wasn’t the end of the world.

The pizza was good, the delivery was quick and I always love when a chain caters to a vegan audience. I must admit that I did laugh when the spinach we ordered to be added to the pizza came in a separate plastic container. Did they think we wanted to add it ourselves? Or just really wanted some plain spinach on its own? Who knows. Either way we put it on our pizzas and it was delicious anyway.

It wasn’t greasy, and felt like an authentic thin crust wood-fire pizza, a nice change to the greasy messes than can often come when ordering a delivery pizza. A good find, I’ll think of Spizza next time the cupboards are bare.

Affordable, excellent Italian food

Spizza is my favourite pizza joint in Singapore. Their thin crust pizzas are especially excellent and I always look forward to eating there.

They often have promotions too. Now, they have an offer where we can get pizzas and pastas for just $10. How affordable! I also like how they name their pizzas with girls' names - I thought it was a nice touch.

My favourite pizza is the Rebecca pizza because of the excellent Mozzarella and ham. I'd definitely recommend it!

The only thing I don't like about Spizza is their rather strange opening hours - when I finish school around 2:15pm, I often can't make it in time to get food from Spizza as it closes at 2:30pm before reopening at 6pm on weekdays.

Besides that, I think Spizza is an excellent place to get high-quality, authentic pizzas at an affordable price!

authentic woodfire pizzas

Spizza is an Italian cafe specializing in authentic Italian wood fire pizzas and other Italian dishes. It has several outlets in Singapore and I went to the outlet located at Bukit Timah. I went there on a weekday afternoon and my friend and I were the only two diners there. Service was great. We were ushered to our seats and handed the menu by the friendly and polite waitress.

We ordered a portion of mushroom soup and a large 12" pizza to share. We had trouble deciding on the pizza flavor because there was simply toooooo much to choose from! I don't think I can ever finish tasting all of them. All the pizzas there have names and I forgot the name of the pizza we ordered! The one we settled for had beef, cheese, tomatoes and rucola on it. The mushroom soup arrived quickly but we had to wait a while for the pizza. I am fine with that because I believe they are making the pizza fresh!

The soup was made of blended wild mushrooms and tasted really nice and chunky. It is definitely not your usual Campbell soup! The pizza was fresh and the crust was thin and crispy. It was heaps better than Skinny Pizza. The pizzas are also not the ones that you get at Pizza Hut or Canadian Pizza. The pizza here is way better and more authentic. The wood fire way of cooking really brings out the flavour and fragrance of the pizza! I would recommend everyone to come here for their pizza if you are looking for something different from the usual Pizza Hut style of pizza.

Good Italian Food At Affordable Prices

A popular Italian restaurant, Spizza attracts the crowds with their thin crust, wood-fired pizzas, big and bold flavours, and affordable pricing. I'm impressed that Spizza is able to keep prices slightly lower than other Italian restaurants, despite using specially crafted wood-fired ovens, importing their ingredients from Italy, and hand-making some items in-house.

Ambience at Spizza is casual and laid-back, with the feel of a rustic, countryside farm. Decor is minimal, but features clean lines and strategic lighting. Several outlets have outdoor dining, which I feel is preferable to their indoor dining, as some of their outlets have a small indoor floor space, and it tends to be more cramped.

Spizza staff are professional and efficient, though the younger / newer staff have trouble with menu / product knowledge. In general, I find the service at Spizza to be good, and staff are able to handle special requests well.

Spizza is known for their extensive range of thin crust pizzas, as well as their cooking method of wood-firing. Besides pizza, they also serve popular Italian antipasti, appetizers, desserts and pasta dishes. Food at Spizza features fresh ingredients which carry big taste. I also like that they make some of their pasta fresh in-house.

The Beef Carpaccio with Rucola Salad and shaved Parmesan Cheese has nice, thinly sliced beef with a light marinade of lemon juice and olive oil. Slight twist on the vegetables, with rucola instead of the standard arugula. This traditional Italian dish is a good appetizer to start off the meal.

The Portobello Al Forno features an oven baked portobello mushroom cap topped with bolognese meat sauce and taleggio cheese. A popular traditional Italian dish, this is also the restaurant's most popular appetizer. The mushrooms are tender and juicy, and the meat sauce has the right consistency of thickness and meatiness that satisfies.

The Rebecca Pizza consists of a white pizza base with mozzarella, gorgonzola, ham, rucola and sun-dried tomatoes. Nice balance of ingredients, with a savoury and slightly salty mouth feel, with a burst of freshness from the vegetables. Easy to see why it's one of the more popular pizza here.

The Ursula Pizza consists of a pizza base topped with tomato, mascarpone, spinach, smoked salmon and capers. The smoked salmon and capers lend a burst of briny saltiness to each bite of the pizza. Nice, but a little overwhelming in a large quantity.

The Tiramisu here is a house made special, and is rich and decadent. Really good! Differs from the traditional Italian dessert with the use of sponge cake instead of biscuit fingers.

Spizza also offers delivery islandwide in Singapore. In the catergory of the gourmet pizza delivery, Spizza is among the best and most affordable choices in Singapore, with a relatively short waiting time of about 1 hour. (Gourmet pizza takes a longer time to prepare than fast food pizza).

Their delivery is slow but the food is great

This is a review of their delivery service. Ordered the combo 'per due' and had it delivered to my school for lunch (haha) Had a Vittoria (Tomato, Mozzarella, Chicken Sausage, Mushrooms, fresh Chilli)

The food wasn't very hot, but it was definitely warm enough if you eat it quickly. The bottle of coke was not cold enough though, but that's probably to be expected since delivery took about an hour and 20 minutes.

The pizza tastes great, especially with the fresh chili. Provides the spice and zest which is nicely quelled with a sip of coke. I had the rocket salad which was nothing special, although it had a generous amount of cheese. Was just good ol' rocket salad. The garlic bread was probably put in the container hot, so when it came to me, it was cold and dry and tough. I didn't finish it.

It is quite expensive compared to Canadian Pizza, but you get what you pay for. The food is great! On another note, all their pizzas looked delicious on their website, and it took me a long time to decide. Incidentally, many of them have female names, such as Claudia, Barbara and Anna. I'm not sure why I chose Vittoria out of all the twentyfour different kinds, but perhaps it was the name. I like the name.

Excellent pizzas

I find it funny that all their pizzas have human names because imagine what it is to say that we had Sofia and Isabella for dinner, which is wrong on a few levels. Anyway, we did have Sofia and Isabella for dinner. And, if Sofia and Isabella are representative of Spizza's offerings in general, then I must say that Spizza serves quite decent food. The pizzas are of the wood-fire, thin-crust variety and generously topped, which for me is the perfect pizza. I hate thick chewy crusts, so the bread-to-topping ratio was perfect for me, and every bite was extremely satisfying.

Isabella was topped with tomato, mozarella, parma ham, and rucola salad - a great flavour and texture combo. There was the saltiness and meatiness of the parma ham and the bitterness and leafy crunch of the rucola. Next we had Sofia, which was topped with tomato, mozarella, shrimps, mussels, scallops, calamari, and fresh basil. And that was yummy too. The sprinkling of basil added a pleasant herbaceous note to the dish, which cut the richness of sauce, seafood, and cheese. And every bite was so satisfying due to the generous toppings of fresh, succulent meaty prawns and calamari.

Highly recommended!

Great catchup place for friends

My friends and I decided to try Spizza as we were looking for a place to have dinner one Friday night. While deciding what to order we were really impressed by the variety of pizzas and antipasti they had to offer. After much consideration, we opted for a hot menu item, the Vittoria (which was basically a tomato-based chicken sausage and mushroom pizza) and a Sofia (a seafood pizza which was topped with shrimp, scallops, and calamari). The portions served were bigger than we expected and these two pizzas were more than enough for the 3 of us. Both pizzas were delicious, however I still think Peperoni tops every pizza place for the best thin-crust pizza in Singapore.
