L'Operetta, Boat Quay

Disclaimer: Because I'm not at home, I can't put up photos now. Will do so when I get back!

L'Operetta was blogged about enthusiastically by Leslie of ieatishootipost.sg a few weeks ago as the most authentic Neapolitan pizza around, and almost good enough to get some kind of certification. Regardless of whatever certification it is, it's a great place. Located just near Jazz @ Southbridge (poor thing they're going to close, I had fond memories), L'Operetta had quite a lavish decor of opulent whites, giving it a very regal look. With opera music playing in the background, large mirrors, and bottles of wine, you could see this place was tastefully decked up.

I bumped into T & A having their meal there and the first thing they did was to give us some free grappa. apparently the chef had given them free grappa and well they passed it to us since A already had 5 glasses and he looked like one more would pass out. so. we gladly took it. and it was really nice. haha.

Later on, they actually gave us free grappa as well, and I have to say it's really excellent: very fresh, light, fruity, and quite delicious. very drinkable. yums. and the best part is, it's free!

So we ordered one pizza each (to share); we ordered the Napolitana (the normal one with basil, tomato, mozerella, oregano), one with fish, and the parma ham and rocket pizza.

The Napolitana was awesome! Very pronounced oregano and basil flavour, and the tomatoes were clearly from fresh tomatoes which were ripe and sweet. Excellent. (8.5/10)

The "fish" pizza was great as well - "ice-fish" and some other stuff. very savoury. honestly, forgotten what the flavours were. (8/10)

The rocket and proscuitto pizza was quite a standout; hard to go wrong with this if you have good ingredients, but what I liked about it was that they were generous with the proscuitto and well everything went together nicely. (8.5/10)

The great thing about the pizzas here is the crust. It's thin, but not like a biscuit, there's still some chewiness in it, and its just the right taste and texture. Perfecto.

And the best part was the complimentary blue cheese, honey and fig dessert pizza at the end. Fresh from the oven, piping hot, with just nary the slightest hint of blue cheese for after-taste and honey which just oozes subdued sweeetnes, this was a joy to eat. For sure. (9/10)

Definitely a place you must try.
