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

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.

This is the dumbest restaurant in town. If not for the location no one should every go this place. I was there with my wife and my 2 year old for breakfast. we waited in line for 15 minutes to order, when our turn came we were told that they don't serve breakfast after 11am! I was in line at 1045 am !!! it takes the person behind the POS such a long time to clear a customer as she has to prepare all the beverages. we stepped aside and looked at the lunch menu waited in line again for another 15mins. When our turn came, they told us from 11am to 12pm they only serve pizza!!! lunch menu only at 12pm!!! so for 2 hours 10-12 this restaurant has 3 set of menus!!!! its amazing that people still pay for such bad service. we ended up ordering a soggy pizza. on a scale of 1 to 10 this place is negative 5

I have visited Casa Verde 3-4x over the past few years and I am really pleased at the consistency and experience that I've had.

I visited on a weekday lunch-hour and it was 75% full-house. Food wasn't served like - immediately - but I beleive it's because they need time to prepare great quality food.

We ordered burgers, mushroom burger, and teriyaki chicken burger. Portion was just-nice. Not too much for an average sized guy who didn't have breakfast, and we went away from brunch fulfilled and happy, even if we need to walk 15-mins to Tanglin Gate to catch our bus.

We love the ambience. It was pretty clean, restrooms aren't too far away, and the serenity of being able to enjoy brunch in a park is just....wonderful!

I will definitely recommend this place for nice burgers, nice hang-outs, and dates. Family outing to this restaurant is a must if you can splurge a little bit more than the neighborhood diners.
