For this review I would like to talk about restaurants located in Tomang, to be exact in Jalan Mandala Utara. For my experience it's not easy to find an awesome restaurant in that particular area. To find one that has good food would be like finding a hidden gem.
Luckily my quest was helped by the invitation from a restaurant which specialized in making authentic Italian pizzas. This is my culinary diary at Quattro Pizzeria.
To ease on the search, just find the Cimory shop. You'll find Quattro just a couple of houses away.
I came here as a privilege. Being invited by the owner/chef, Mr. Derrick Thomson for a foodtasting event, I just couldn't miss the chance to try Quattro's pizzas. Especially since a lot of my fellow foodbloggers gave good ratings for its pizzas.
Anyway, as any restaurants that serve authentic Italian pizzas, Quattro Pizzeria also used wood-fired oven to bake their pizzas. But what fascinates me more is that Quattro is very concern about the healthiness of the food. In here, you will find thin crusted pizza but with no burnt crust. They only bake it until the crust is golden brown colored. It's so important since the burnt crust contained carbon from the wood fire used for baking so it's dangerous for your health.
Also another extra point was Quattro Pizzeria only use fresh ingridients and non-preservatives. So it's a guarantee that you will get not only a delicious pizza here, but also healthy. The tomato sauce for the pizza base is home made too.

For the prices, you get what you pay. For the rate of a pizza dish, it still can be count as a normal rate. But considering the taste, it's much more worth it. You get more than what you pay.
For my consideration, maybe the location is a little bit outcasted. But if you're a true Italian pizza lover, you wouldn't mind coming here. I know I would plan a second visit. Just got to try the spicy Mafiozo next time.
