Its two-course Set Lunch Menu (S$30++) is really worth the price. Choose from starters, such as Kale Salad, which is tossed with green apple slices, raisins, pine nut and piave cheese.

For your main course, definitely go for its Bianca Pizza, a generous serving which is fantastic for sharing.
The dough was peppery and salty, while its mouth-watering three cheese comprising fontina, truffle and taleggio were wonderfully salty and sweet at the same time. Topping the pizza off were hearty sausage meatballs and crispy fried sage.
