The 5 Best Places For Pizza In Singapore

Mamma Mia! The first pizza I head in Singapore was more of a crispy Prata with some undefinable mushy toppings. It was more then extremely horrible and triggered yet another long ranting about the general misconception of Western food in Asia, and why to offer it at all, considering given fact of having about 1 million different local and South East Asian cuisines already. Why Pizza in Asia?

1. Timbre – At The Substation

Great Pizza, crispy, thin and with more then enough toppings to choose of. Go for duck breast, Mexican or any other of the fantastic layers.
Good thing is, you can order half-half pizzas if you cant decide which one to take, just combine two toppings into one pizza and enjoy the different tastes.

And while enjoying your pizza you can listen to some great live music at the same time, its a hip place, with great pizza and good music!

2. Walla Walla

One of the classic meetups for great live bands and new startups jamming the little room upstairs at Walla Walla, you can not only find exceptional live music here but also great Pizza.

The Pizzas topping is in general generous and my recommendation is to try the “Walla Walla” Pizza, it has basicalyy every topping and somehow still manages to taste very delicious.

  • Pizza Style: Thick

3. Da Paolo – La Terrazza

Da Paolo is a very nice little restaurant, extremely popular and usually booked out if you dont make reservations upfront. The place is famous for its delicious original Pizzas and at the same time a hip place for nice dinners.

Da Paolo has 3 outlets of which I like the one at Holland Village most. Sit outside and enjoy a great Pizza with one of the hundreds of redwine you can choose of.

  • Da Paolo – La Terrazza
  • Pizza Style: Crispy / Normal
  • Location: 44 Jalan Merah Saga #01-56
  • How To Get There: Taxi to Holland Village

4. Bella Pizza

One of the more expensive places of this list but definitely worth its price. The ambient is great and so are the pizzas.

The italian chef will make sure every pizza leaving the oven is really what you expect from an italian Pizza place. The service is good as well and you could almost forget sitting in Singapore while enjoying your Parma Ham topping.

  • Bella Pizza
  • Pizza Style: Crispy / thin
  • Location: 30 Robertson Quay, #01-14 Riverside View
  • How To Get There: Clarque Quay MRT
  • Opening Hours: Tu-Fri: 11.30am – 2.30pm / 6pm – 11pm

  • Contact: (65) 6734 0139 / antoniobellapizza@gmail.com
  • Webpage: www.bellapizza.com.sg

5. The Turquoise Room

The Turquise Room is the insider tip on this list. It’s unfortunately quite off location doesnt let many people “accidentaly” come here and enjoy the great food.
However its great concept and the food will bring you back once you’ve tried the Pizza.

Its well worth the journey and the Pizza is fantastic.

  • Timbre – At The Substation
  • Pizza Style: Crispy / Normal
  • Location: 7 Lock Road
  • How To Get There: Taxi
  • Opening Hours: Mo-Su: 12noon – 11pm
  • Contact: (65) 6473 3655

Thanks. Will check those out if i get a chance. Some of the pizza i’ve had here so far has been pretty bad.

Well, a German reviewing Italian restaurants is like an Italian reviewing German restaurants :-)
Actually as a purist I don’t consider finger-food pizza as the real deal.
I have tried 3 out of these 5 joints and when I saw Timbre in pole position, I literally did a somersault on the couch. It was ok, good with a beer, but that does not register as GOOD. You are reviewing more the setting than the food itself, then its a good place, I agree.
Da Paolo has several joints along Holland Village and I had pizza in La Terrazza, if my memory does not betray me, but that was a bad job of a pizza.
Where to get a good pizza? Virtually every Italian restaurant here in SG, excluding the Salvatore chain, makes really good food. My recommendations are for “da Donato” who runs a small pizza place selling it by the slice, off Sixth Avenue. That’s really great pizza for the sake of pizza. I also love Al Forno and Etna, both on East Coast Road. As long as they have a firebrick oven, they cant really mess it up. The rest, please……..

Pizzas at Timbre are okay but absolute not the best in town. Walla Walla don’t deserve to be on the list at all! How do you can forget pizza’s from the best italian chefs in Singapore, we have plenty of them and they all MUCH better then the Timbre or Walla Walla sh*t…

@Eltractor67
OMG “Da Donato” is still there?!?!! I thought they were gone from that spot in 5th Avenue! They make amazing potato croquettes and calzones too

Timbre is donating half the bill to The Substation tomorrow night (Tues 1 Dec) at Timbre@The Substation and Timbre Mobile (East Coast) if you say you’re there for Dine Out for Art or The Substation. Grab a bunch of friends, have a great night and support both Timbre and The Substation at the same time! (I’m from The Substation!)

i very much agree for timbres to have one of the best pizzas in town. i could still enjoy it as much as it just got served and when its already 32 mins after. although i do have to point out that getting the staffs attention can be a chore! i dnt know, maybe theyre just pissed off at the crowd they usually get (students from the area) and ive noticed that they really acknowledge their colleagues and friends who patron but seriously, its a good thing that they have great pizzas and an awesome band but they might need to do better than that if i have already kept on recommending their place to my foreign friends who’s visiting. after all, bottom line, its all SERVICE. but kudos on the food

What?! Nah! Personally I feel that pizzas served in bars or pubs just suck. Pizza should not be served as finger food; it’s a full meal.

Timbre and Walla Walla pizzas, I’ve tried them and all of them suck and are extremely overpriced.

I’m still yearning for good ol’ New York style Pizza with abundant toppings. I don’t mind paying more but don’t give me pathetic amounts of toppings to make me feel that I’ve been cheated or scammed.
