Fresh olives slightly warmed is firm and well marinated. Pickled scallions are sweet, crunchy and slightly salty – an explosion of flavours in your mouth.

Eggplant, chilli, and red pepper veggie paste was pungent and spicy.

Spread over focaccia toast and a slice of cured meat to balance the flavours out… Fontina cheese cleanses your palate between sets.

Please don’t assume the cheese is plain and bland. Fontina cheese is pungent and also has an intense mixture of earthy, mushroomy, and woody taste. It pairs impeccably well with cured meats and truffles.


Prosciutto & Arugula Pizza 18
Prosciutto, argugula, reggiano, fiori di latte

Let me start by saying that the hero of this dish is the crust – thin, crunchy and never hard to chew or break like a cracker. As you bite into thin crust it will have a little softness of bread to counterbalance the crispy bottom.

The freshness of the prosciutto mixed the nutty spicy taste of arugula perks up this pizza. Reggiano adds a rustic texture with its buttery aroma and nutty sweetness.

Overall a very casual fine dining pizzeria with above par pizzas. Definitely a must try if you are in the area. Next time I visit I must try the mushroom truffle pizza with fontina (I wonder if it will also be as orgasimic as The Market’s… ) … mmmm truffle…. #melt

So Novo boast a fire wood pizza oven in house, I wonder if there is a such a thing as a Mobile Pizza Oven… Maybe an idea for street food carts?
