Spizza

Known for its affordable yet authentic Italian fare, Spizza has been around for more than decade at its pioneer outlet at Club Street.

Parmigiana

Parmigiana

Parmigiana ($13) – Oven-baked eggplant and mozzarella with tomato sauce. Layers of thinly sliced eggplants sitting in a sea of tangy tomato sauce. We enjoyed the acidic and tangy notes of the tomato sauce. The sauce was rich and flavourful and the eggplants had thoroughly absorbed the essence of the sauce. The eggplants weren’t all too mushy and retained its structural integrity. A pretty decent rendition of the Italian classic parmigiana.

Gnocchi

Gnocchi

Gnocchi ($17) – Gratinated homemade Gnocchi with gorgonzola, cream and cooked ham. Spizza’s version has got to be one of the more appealing gnocchi we have tried. The gnocchi was served in a piping hot rectangular deep dish, carrying with it the aroma of cheese and cream. The dumplings weren’t too starchy and sticky, and had just the right balance of chewiness and softness. The sauce was slightly too water, akin to a soup, not exactly the thick consistency that we were hoping for. Taste wise, it was generally creamy, exhibiting slight notes of blue cheese. We added more Parmesan cheese to the gnocchi, increasing the cheesiness of the dish while at the same time, thickening the watery sauce. On the whole, despite some misses, the Gnocchi is one of the dishes that we will recommend at Spizza.
