Peperoni Pizzeria at Greenwood Avenue (Bukit Timah)

Tried once and I’m hooked – these five words aptly describe my sentiments about this place that serves awesome pasta and wood fired pizzas. Seriously, how could I have not known of Peperoni Pizzeria till one month ago?

Peperoni Pizzeria at Greenwood AvenuePeperoni Pizzeria, a part of Les Amis Group, is an Italian restaurant that currently has five outlets across our sunny island. On one of our weekend dates, Evans and I decided to explore the Bukit Timah area and I am really glad that we found this excellent place to satisfy our pasta-pizza craving. We went to the Greenwood outlet (not exactly the most convenient location without a car).

Peperoni Pizzeria at Greenwood AvenueWe arrived at the Greenwood outlet around 5.30pm, thinking that we would be able to avoid the dinner crowd at this timing. Yes we did manage to avoid the crowd but we almost didn’t get to dine here. We went without making any reservations and when we told the waitress that we wanted a table for 2, they checked and told us that they only had an outdoor table (even though most of the indoor tables were empty). Also, we would need to finish by 7pm. We were fine with all these, in fact, we enjoy alfresco dining sometimes. So we sat down, looked through the menu, ordered our food, and was served pretty fast.

We ordered the Calamari Fritti for our appetizer and it was really good! It is very thinly breaded and you can taste the buttery crisp of the calamari ring. We felt that it had a very unique taste and was different from the ones we had elsewhere. This sinful plate of golden brown calamari was not overly oily and we whipped clear the whole plate in ten minutes! Evans likes it dipped in lemon mayo while I relish eating the ring just the way it is without any sauce.

Frutti Di Mare at Peperoni PizzeriaFrutti Di Mare – Price $19. Prawns, clams, scallops, squid rings, fish & garlic

From the ingredients listed above, you will know that this is their seafood pizza. Tried one slice and I knew this had to be my favourite. It’s one of the best seafood pizzas I have ever eaten! Their pizzas are made thin crusted, which is just the way I like it, and how pizza should be! Their pizza comes in three sizes – medium (9 inch), large (12 inch) and XXL (21 inch). We ordered two medium size pizza as they were having UOB credit card one-for-one promotions for their pizza. The 9 inch pizza is evenly sliced into six pieces and serves one to two persons. They are generous with the seafood and they give customers the option to add extra toppings and meat (prama ham, seafood, prawn, pancetta) for a small price.

Suprema Pizza at Peperoni PizzeriaSuprema – Price $19. Shitake, chicken sausage, onions & red chili

Heavenly woodfire pizza evenly topped with Shitake mushrooms and sliced chicken sausage: one of the Chef’s recommendations. Evans ordered this because he was craving for some sausage that afternoon. The Suprema was served to our desk piping hot with a great deal of sausages on a tomato base. One mouthful of it and you will get the spicy kick as there’s a dose of of red chili-padi added. We enjoyed this pizza.

Alle Vongole at Peperoni Pizzeria Greenwood AvenueAlle Vongole – Price $24. Venus clams in white wine sauce

One of the best Alle Vongole I have tried so far and it is also one of the Chef’s recommendations. I don’t deny that price is on the high side but we felt that it was really fantastic and worth it! Juicy and succulent clams soaked in savoury white wine sauce, small slices of crispy fried garlic, tomatoes contributing to the wonderful flavour – heavenly! There are about eight to ten plump clams in this plate of linguini, doused in the seriously sweet white wine/garlic sauce. You really really gotta try it!

Tiramisu at Peperoni Pizzeria Greenwood AvenuePeperoni Pizzeria Gelato Ice CreamTiramisu – Price $13. Savoiardi, layered in mascarpone, flavoured with aromatic coffee and Kahlua

You’re probably wondering, Evans and I had just finished a plate of calamari, two 9-inch pizzas, a plate of Vongole and we were still going to have desserts? Yes, the above was what we ordered after our main dishes and I must admit that both of us do eat like cows sometimes. Tiramisu is my favourite dessert and we ordered this plus a simple scoop of Gelato Ice Cream. The tiramisu tasted wonderful and fluffy, and was not overly-heavy. I always like to savour my tiramisu slowly because every mouthful of it is just so heavenly. Peperoni’s tiramisu did not disappoint as well: mocca-flavoured whipped cream with aromatic espresso flavour and a hint of liquor. Yummy! We had a single scoop of strawberry gelato ($4) which tasted like how gelato tastes everywhere else (but nevertheless still good).

Conclusion: Delicious wood fired pizza, Great for couples and families alike!
We left the restaurant with our stomachs filled to the brim with good food. The price was slightly on on the high side but like I said, every single dish was good or fantastic. We also saw many families having dinner here. There were papers and crayons on the tables for children to doodle while adults engaged in conversations. Overall, the place had great atmosphere and ambience. We strongly advise making reservations to avoid disappointment. Evans and I really like this place and its food and we will definitely be coming back for their XXL pizza the next time round!
