Pizza. Peeee-zza. Piiii-zz-a. Rolls off the tongue doesn’t it? Well, actually, not if you’re eating it right. But no matter how challenging you find the munching on Italy’s most successful export, the guys at Spizza will keep the good food times coming with their much feted wood-fired oven pizzas. Spizza’s Mercato branch is among Singapore’s more unique pizza places – blending restaurant, takeaway, collection and Italian mini-market on Stamford Road in the Capitol Piazza.
Italian food has been the unchallenged champion of European eating for many years and the team behind Singapore’s hugely successful Spizza group have capitalised on the popularity of the cuisine from the Italian peninsula. Of course, there are many pretenders to the crown of great Italian food, and the reason behind the success of Spizza Mercato (you’ll find it on Stamford Road in the Capitol Piazza) is in its commitment to honouring the traditional techniques and ingredients in Italian cooking.
For those around Capitol Piazza looking for classically crafted pizzas, there’s no doubt that Spizza Mercato is the answer, but perhaps less obvious is the availability of a range of other traditionally inspired Italian dishes. Fancy some pasta? Check. Need a bite of a insalata? Check. Longing for a coffee? Check, check, check. There’s plenty to get excited about at Singapore’s Stamford Road branch of Spizza – and it is proving popular with locals who are returning time and time again for fresh Italian goodies in a laidback and reliably fun environment. Pizza is pizza, after all.
First time visiting Spizza at Capitol Piazza, took awhile to locate the shop. But service was efficient and food was up to expectation. Always one of my fav go to pizza joint.
The food was good. The chicken pesto pizza was a little bland but the eggplant was great. Overall very tasty Italian food for a nice price
This is again a wonderful experience in Mercato. Food, service, ambiance are excellent. I even bought a few types of food for take away. Will visit again!
Service was great, the buffalo wings were very nice. We did not need to wait long for the food to be served. Pizzas were crispy!
My second visit to Spizza Mercato. The food is not very consistant as the calamari was dry and hard not like the first time nice & juicy.... the mushroom soup was ok only... mushroom is too finely blended no bite... the Caprese salad was the only nice item this time.... the staff was not very attentive only give us food menu with non alcoholic drin.... and forgotten the drinks (alcoholic) menu...
Second visit in two weeks. Food and service just great! Reservations essential in this festive season. Was full house at dinner time yesterday. For the money you pay, you get a good satisfying meal at better value than many other establishments. Oh and portions are very decent. A large pizza is good enough for two hungry men. Calamari was perfect starter. Try to get a table near fountain. Less noisy especially if there are kids around in the restaurant.
We enjoyed good service and decent food at Spizza Mercato. Really loved the rich and tasty lasagna. The location was excellent, much less crowded than Raffles City but only a few minutes walk from the MRT.
We were celebrating my sister's birthday there. Enjoyed the food and environment at Spizza Mercato. We ordered the pizza, calamari and tiramisu. Pizza and tiramisu were delicious. The restaurant service was good and fast. Highly recommended!
Went there for a dinner. Ordered the pizza and tomato-cream based pasta. The food was delicious and the service was good. The manager was very polite which made us feel comfortable. Only thing is it might be hard for a first-timer who is unfamiliar to Italian food terminology to understand, especially in choosing the pasta components, since it was mainly using Italian terminology. Could do with more explanation or some sorts.
Spizza Mercato is located in a convenient location. Take the MRT to City Hall Station. Food and service was excellent. Will definitely be returning again for another meal.
