Trattoria Pizzeria Logic

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.
