We were a party of six, so it made economical sense to have the XXL 21-inch pizza ($50). Was initially a little skeptical about the consistency considering its sheer size, but it turned out to be such a fantastic idea! The two flavours we chose for this mega pie were 1) Prosciutto Crudo di Parma, generously topped with thinly sliced fresh Parma ham & peppery rocket and 2) Salmone - fresh salmon chunks, caramelised onions & spunky capers. Both were really good, although I was partial to the parma ham one for its multi-dimensional, savoury flavours.
We also had 4 pastas to share. My favourites were in this order - Lasagna, Aglio Olio, Pesto, Squid Ink. The Lasagna was very well done. The combination of flavourful minced beef and cheese sandwich between soft pasta layers, slathered with a lively tomato sauce, gave this dish immediate entry into my list of all-time comfort foods. The pastas are all done perfectly al-dente, in true-blue Italian-style. Aglio Olio is robust and fragrant, and has enough garlic to knock you off your chair; while the Pesto version is delightfully fresh and creamy, though my taste buds wished it were slightly more herbaceous.
The service was great as well. The servers were prompt , courteous, and helpful. They made us feel really at ease throughout our entire time there.
