I brought the bf and treated him to Spizza for his commendable exam results recently at the Katong branch. I have been wanting to introduce this awesome eatery cafe because I enjoyed myself there previously with my ex-colleague and ex-boss, who treated me for my farewell lunch but it was at the Jalan Kayu branch.
We made a reservation for 2 and headed down for a TGIF dinner that evening.
These were what we ordered :
We wanted to order 4 initially but the bf is a chicken-wing lover and so we ordered 6 and totally regretted…Not tasty at all!
I had carbonara previously at the Jalan Kayu branch but chose this mushroom and chicken pasta, which was quite tasteless 😦
I can’t remember the name of this pizza (Spizza name their pizzas after women’s names…) but includes sausages, mushroom and I recall that the sauce base is spicy.
Sad to say, I was extremely disappointed with the taste and quality of the food at Spizza at the Katong branch. Totally embarrassed me in front of my bf although there should be nothing to be ashamed of since we are such a close-knitted couple…but still! Gosh!
Perhaps the only saving grace was the pizza which tasted the best and their customer service was quite awesome (staff taking initiative to pull out another chair for us to place our bags and another chair to place the pizza due to space constraint), but still, we left the cafe devastated, especially myself.
My take is to dine at the Jalan Kayu branch. The Katong branch seriously need to reflect on their other dishes other than the pizzas.

Overall (Katong branch) :
1 star each for Customer Service and another for the pizza.
An Italian cafe at a heartland area?
Without a doubt, the prices are ‘heartland friendly’ too. You can expect neighbourhood prices 🙂
Although we were the only customers (another guy then dined there while we were in the midst of eating), colleagues and I thought that the food was not too bad 🙂
If you are going to dine there, you can consider getting the set which consists of the main, drink and dessert. The strawberry pudding belongs to a set.
Please don’t try the iced lemon tea there. It is self-brewed and very very sour. Couldn’t imagine if we had chosen the lime juice instead. One of the worst iced lemon tea I’ve ever tried! 😦
The ambience was so-so considering the fact that it’s located in a heartland area. I thought the cafe was a little dim but good thing was that they had tv plugged on 🙂 When you run out of things to say and you are immersed in silence, just.watch.tv. 😀

To be more accurate, it deserves a 3.5 rather than 3 🙂
