Great Pizza Place

Was there last weekend for dinner with some friends as we heard it's 50% off wine for opening till end of October!

They already ordered a started when we arrived, didn't asked what it was but it was nice haha. Err ok looks like a little curry puff with cheese and tomato paste inside if not wrong as it was all so quick with us sitting down, talking blah blah blah, ordering wine etc that before I knew, this delicious Italian puff was in my tummy yum yum.

Ordered 2 pizza as we were not too much of a big eater. I must say even the pizza I had in Italy wasn't this good. Heard Chef Lucio is a real expert in pizza. We had seafood and margarita, both were excellent. He's a very friendly guy too.

Had mozarella cheese with cherry tomatoes with olive oil and balsamic. Fresh ingredient and the presentation sure works well with the ladies, looks every inch appertising.

For dessert most had tiramisu and Panna Cotta, thumbs up for both except we find the tiramisu a tad dry.

We paid about $40/pax inculding a bottle of Australian & Italian white wine. We got better prices and the mozarella with tomatos were complimentry due to personal connections hehe

I have been here a few times and the service has always been consistently bad. So I'm not sure how it gets so many good ratings. 
The place is usually packed because the surroundings are lovely. That's why the team gets away with having one of the worst service attitudes in Singapore. 
It's a self service cafe with a super market style queue system but with a rigid barrier dividing the queues. 
Counter staff would stand in position and wait for you to move to their till even when it's empty with no other customers to take orders from. 
And when it's busy the wait will be long. 
The food isn't cheap for a cafe in a park, and quality is just acceptable.
It's a real pity because the botanic gardens is lovely, it's a UNESCO World Heritage site and a pride of Singapore. The Gardens are wel

While the place advertize a all day service and pizza menu, we went there on Vesak day afternoon for a Pizza. It was open, but were just told :NO PIZZA!
Absolutely no justification or any appologies, just : no pizza!  (an hour and taxi fare lost for nothing!)
So, I sugguest to first call to check if they are in the mood for pizza before going there for a pizza experience.

Casa Verde, meaning "Green House" in Italian, is a casual fine-dining restaurant under the Les Amis Group, and situated in Botanical Gardens. It was formerly know as "Cafe Les Amis". Located in Botanical Gardens, surrounding by the luxuriance of greenery, offering casual chic indoor dining or breezy outdoor seatings, this Case Verde offers wholesome, affordable pasta, Italian sandwiches and wood-fire pizzas. Besides that, it also has a daytime menu comprising of a fusion of many local , Asian and Western dishes, making it a very versatile dining place for families, couples and friends alike. The table setting is lovely in a casual manner and the beautiful orchid forming part of the decor is real / fresh!

After we ordered our food, the service crew brought us a basket of mysterious bake that resembled fruit cake - slightly yellowish in color, dotted with reds and greens. Upon tasting, it was savoury and we were informed that it was focaccia with olive and sun-dried tomato. It was delicious, with or without dipping into the olive oil served on the side.

My main course was the Merluzzo al Forno (SGD$30.00) - oven baked fillet of cod with black olive crust in a sweet bell peppers coulis. The skin was crispy and the flesh was very smooth, and tender. However, the fresh sweetness of cod is lacking herein (not to say the cod used here ain't fresh) - I was looking forward to the distinctive notes of sweetness that usually comes with cod meat. A fine layer of mashed potato and sweet bell pepper coulis filled in the taste for the rather bland dish.

The Beau had the Cabonara pasta (SGD$20.00) - spaghetti tossed in egg, butter, bacon, parmesan, and cream sauce. The pasta was cooked to a nice bouncy texture, and the cream sauce was not overly rich. The taste was good overall, and they were rather generous with the bacon pieces.
