Trattoria Pizzeria Logic
Popular Japanese chain restaurant serving Naples-style Italian cuisine on Craig Road
Hailing from Japan, Trattoria Pizzeria Logic offers delectable pizzas using recipes by the brand's expert pizzaiolo Junichi Shoji, winner of the Napoli Pizza World Championship 2012. Here, pizzas are made with flour imported from Italy before being baked in a custom-built kiln, which allows a smoky and crisp crust that retains its chew.
The hype: Hailing from Japan, Trattoria Pizzeria Logic serves Naples-style Italian cuisine, but more impressively, delectable pizzas with recipes by in-house expert pizzaiolo Junichi Shoji, winner of the Napoli Pizza World Championship 2012.
The vibe: Found along Craig Road among other Tanjong Pagar stalwarts, this pizzeria fits right into the neighbourhood with its homely setting. Behind its main entrance lies a wide space that seats nearly 80, including private rooms and even its kitchen that you can sneak a peek into.
The food: No prizes for correctly identifying what's good here.
Made with flour imported from Naples, all pizzas at Trattoria are cooked in a custom-built kiln at a very specific temperature of 496 degrees Celsius, which gives the pizzas a smoky and crisp crust. And that’s particularly important for the brand’s signature Pizza Margherita D.O.C ($26), which is topped with mozzarella cheese caprese as well as cherry tomatoes; ensuring both simplicity and satisfaction.
If you’re itching to deviate from the classics, the Pizza Leone ($22) might do right by you; unless you’re #TeamNoPineapples. An interesting combination of ham, jalapenos, pineapples and ricotta cheese, the Leone is one that’s specially created for the Singapore outlet.
Look no further than the Paccheri with Neapolitan meat sauce ($22) for a pasta option, which offers tender, braised spareribs, meatballs, plus some Parmigiano-Reggiano atop a generous bed of paccheri pasta.
The drinks: While you don’t find Chinese tea at most pizzerias, you sure can find it here. A surprisingly good accompaniment to the pizzas and pastas, the Oolong Tea ($6) is gentle and fragrant, and is a nice balance with the savoury mains.
Why you’ll be back: The signature Pizza Margherita D.O.C is enough to warrant a second visit. For uncomplicated, easy-to-eat pizzas that don’t break the bank, this popular chain restaurant’s first outlet in Singapore is a good choice.
