Too Much Pizzas
When I heard that Pete's Place was having a Pizza Buffet on every Tuesday on the month of September 2013 to celebrate their birthday, I was as thrilled as a kid whose mom just told them that they are going to have pizza for dinner.
There were altogether 15 different types of pizzas available, from the usual Hawaiian to the very exotic Thai and the creative fruity seafood. Even their desserts were presented in the form of pizzas. To give us a balanced diet, they have a generous salad bar (with honey mustard dressing, which isn't too common, at least that's my personal opinion - I can only find that at Subway). And to end the meal, the usual tea and coffee, with a biscuit to dunk into your drink.
While the idea is certainly original and interesting, I think my eagerness to try the place out was a little... undue. Having pizza dinner is amazing, but to have 15 slices of pizzas for dinner (being the greedy me, I have to try them all) is a little too much. My company and I were full by our third slice even though the pizzas were calling to us for seconds.
Perhaps we should have shared a slice each amongst the 4 of us. But that's not how you eat a pizza! As for the quality of the pizzas, they are well and traditionally made and are definitely better than regular delivery ones. But they do not stand out as excellent. The decor of the place gives you the expectations of Italian pizzas, but really Italian pizzas they are not. Having said that, I would rather pay for a good slice of pizza here than to have take out.
Kudos to the service crew and the ambiance of the place, though. I'll come back again, but this time for their a la carte menu.
Could be better
I found the ambiance and service of Pete's Place top notch. It kinda exudes an underground American-Italian diner vibe - maybe even a bit cool mafia style - when you first make your way down the staircase to the basement of Hyatt. All their guests were foreigners of course.
There was a friendly manager going around the tables making sure his guests were comfortable. Chloe said it was her special something (I can't remember) - but she always says that!! And they gave us a small little cake with candles, which was nice.
We tried their specialty, the lobster pasta which was good but not great. The tomato soup and cheese pizza were unfortunately so-so and the salad was definitely the worse of the lot. We have a yearly Hyatt membership card which allows us to eat at all the Hyatt restaurants at 50% off for two so we really wanted to find an alternative to Mezza9.
Their service and ambiance were great but I felt the food here wasn't up to the standards of their other restaurant Mezza9 so we will probably just be dining there from now on. Oh well!
