My meal at Extra Virgin Pizza consisting of just two pizzas (spotted pig and seafood) and two iced lemon cost $39.60 even with the use of The Entertainer application where I got a 1-for-1 deal for the pizzas. It is a little on the pricier side since the environment and experience wasn't exactly conducive or comfortable to start with, but the food wasn't bad at all and the service staff were very polite. I would hope to return to try the side dishes and for a better meal.
Seems like the other diners had a better experience than I did. I ordered the bundle package that comes with two pizzas, one pasta, chicken wings etc. The pizzas were okay. Neither d*** bad nor impressive. The pasta was however very bland and hard. Being an avid pasta fan I know what's cooking it Al Dente style but this one was more of undercooked. When I requested for it to be changed because it was too hard, the waiter (somewhat doubted me) said "Al Dente is like like'. I told him I was sorry but it was too hard to be Al Dente. He told me he would have it redone for me. I'm not quite sure what he meant but it turned out to be the same portion of pasta I had earlier (they simple got it re-fried). I still don't understand how a pasta that's already been cooked, can be recooked again to make it softer after adding all the sauces/seasonings. Is it really very hard to cook the entire dish again? The cost of pastas are very low, it won't be a big loss. I think losing a customer is a bigger loss. So if you would like to know...even after having it 'refried', it was still as hard, there was no difference whatsoever.
As much as the pizzas were okay, I will not be back because there are better pizzas out there such as Pepperoni's, Skinny pizza etc. If you wish to sell pastas, make it good. With so many f&b outlets popping up in Singapore, it is very competitive. Good food will bring in the crowd. I drove past on Xmas and it wasn't packed. Either Virgin Pizza has not yet been discovered or people know that it isn't worth the visit.
