Bella Pizza @ Riverside Walk

10:44 AM , , 0 Comments

Bella Pizza reminded me of now defunct Oregano. It could be the size of the shop, or the way it was so well hidden. On a Friday night, reservations are highly recommended though requests for a table inside fell to deaf ears.

Calamari Frutti ($18)

The company loved this so much they were all gone in minutes. I kid you not. Apparently lightly battered calamari rings with a zesty sauce to match. What honestly amused me was the arrangement of food, they left a huge space for half the plate which left me wondering was rocket salad supposed to fill the void?

eggplant lasagne

Looked like lagsana and tasted like vegetarian lagsana. Pity the some pieces of eggplant were undercooked but overall a tasty dish.

Their pizzas are characterized by white and red sauces used.

The best of the night and was recommended by the waiter.

Their pizza bases are thin bread types, still lacking in the chewy finish that Al Forno has. Perhaps that's the way the Italians indulge in Italy.

Has Robertson Quay found a fan in me? Not quite yet...too much of a crowd. I still prefer Dempsey.
