Nancy Silverton

It’s time for Osteria Mozza to reintroduce themselves to the city. Situated in the heart of Orchard lies Asia’s only outpost of Nancy Silverton’s one-Michelin-starred Italian restaurant from Los Angeles. Formerly located at Marina Bay Sands, the restaurant underwent a four-year hiatus and has since rethought and evolved the way their pizzas are made.

Expect a crispier, lighter and more robust dough, all the while retaining its thin crust. Much of the pizza-making process is started from scratch—the dough is fermented for three days, kneaded and then flipped to produce the ideal taste and texture. Even the herbs are grown in-house, right by the al fresco dining area.

Experience how far simple, yet fresh ingredients can take a dish when you sink your teeth into the Bianca, a pizza hell-bent on letting three cheeses (fontina, mozzarella, sottocenere) shine through. The Margherita offers a more familiar experience, featuring ingredients like mozzarella di bufala, tomato, and basil. Think your classic margherita, but heightened in clarity and coherence. Beyond the shadow of a doubt, the leading man that stole the afternoon was the Burrata. Bite into a slice of rather life-changing slow-roasted tomatoes, creamy burrata cheese and Sicilian oregano, all sitting on top of a wood-fired dough to form a delicate balance of savoury, acidity and sweetness. The perfect pizza bite.

Robb Tip: Pizza at Osteria Mozza is a pleasure reserved exclusively for lunch, so make sure to make reservations between 12pm to 2.30pm.
