Could this be the new “best pizza place” in St John’s?
I’m very excited to have discovered Piatto this week. If what you crave is authentic, Italian style pizza with fresh ingredients then this is the new place to go in town.
What makes Piatto so great is their authentic approach to pizza: it’s cooked in a traditional wood-burning oven at 900˚C for just 90 seconds. The tomato sauce and thin crust are deliciously fresh-tasting. Toppings are arranged in just the right amounts. This is the real deal – pizza as it was meant to be – a far cry from the cheese-and-tinned-mushroom-overload you get from an American chain pizza place.
In addition to pizza, they offer a selection of salads, appetizers and calzones. You won’t find any pasta on this menu: this is a pizzeria rather than an “Italian” restaurant and they rightly focus on their specialty dish.
Good prices, great food, a combination of local and imported fine ingredients… all in a friendly atmosphere. Thank you, Piatto, for bringing your excellent and authentic pizzas to St John’s! You are a welcome addition to the neighbourhood.
• The “Cesare” salad with pancetta, romaine and house-made dressing;
• The Margherita pizza – a classic!
• “Della Terra” pizza with fresh basil, mozzarella, olives, mushrooms, artichoke hearts and parmesan;
• If you have room for dessert, try the flourless chocolate-espresso cake with crème anglaise!
