The name “GIOIA” itself translates to “Joy,” and indeed, it brings joy to my tummy. From hand-stretched thin-crust Napoleon pizza to the unique take on cheese steak panino, every dish is crafted to deliver a delightful sensation.
Must-Try Beef Panino and Chicken Panino (CheeseSteak)
Gioia Pizza doesn’t just excel in the realm of pizza; their sandwiches are outstanding. FYI, the Boss, Head Chef of GIOIA pizza made their own dough and even improvised on it. They allow you to choose between their oregano dough or their normal dough. Homemade bread taste simply different. The taste is extremely fresh and flavourful.
The Beef Panino boasts a soft, handmade bun that cradles tender, marinated beef, accompanied by crunchy bell peppers and a generous helping of fresh rocket leaves salad. For chicken lovers, the Chicken Panino is a treat. Juicy, grilled chicken slices nestle between homemade bread, harmonising with creamy cheese, crisp lettuce, and zesty aioli sauce. These sandwiches are more than just a quick bite; they are a flavour-packed journey. They are a must-try!
The Calzone at Gioia Pizza is a masterpiece that encapsulates the essence of Italian cuisine. The hand-made dough creates a delicate yet crispy base, providing the perfect canvas for generous layers of ham, tomatoes, and cheese. The fragrant oregano-based dough elevates the flavour profile, making each bite an exquisite delight. This calzone is so delicious that you won’t leave a single morsel behind!
For Cheese lovers, you will definitely love this dish as the way the cheese meld the ingredients harmoniously together is simply amazing.
Pizza Tartufo – Truffle Mushroom Pizza
Embarking on a gourmet journey, the Pizza Tartufo at Gioia Pizza is a testament to their culinary expertise. This is their signature dish and definitely a must-try! We could smell the truffle in the air before the pizza was even served.
The thin, crispy crust plays host to an orchestra of tastes: truffle oil dances with tender mushrooms, succulent chicken, and a luxurious blend of cheese. Unlike typical pizza dough, the chewy texture of Gioia’s hand-made dough adds another layer of enjoyment, making this pizza a truly sophisticated indulgence.
I believe that a restaurant serving a good Margherita shows the authenticity of the Italian cuisine. Gioia’s Pizza Margherita is a prime example of this principle. With only a handful of key ingredients—pomodoro, mozzarella cheese, and basil—this classic pizza celebrates the harmony of flavours.
The homemade dough provides the ideal foundation for the tangy tomato sauce, the generous layer of melted mozzarella, and the aromatic touch of fresh basil leaves. It’s a slice of pure Italian perfection.
As GIOIA have quite a bit of their orders from delivery, we also ordered some take-away to try it back home. After about an hr, we heat the truffle pasta and it taste equally good as eating in the restaurant. The pasta was not soggy and the smell was still incredible.
If you are a Truffle lover like me, this is definitely in your ordering menu. The Fettuccine Truffle at Gioia Pizza will steal your heart. The creaminess is masterfully balanced, and the truffle essence permeates every bite.
Grilled chicken adds tenderness and moisture, while the mushrooms provide a delightful contrast of softness and crunch. The black truffle paste was so yummy. This dish disappears quickly, leaving behind only satisfied sighs.
Chicken CheeseSteak Salad
Their Chicken CheeseSteak Salad was unique as it was the first time we tried salad that was warm. However, I could say that this is the best salad i have tried. The way the melted cheese mixed with the soft yet crunchy bell peppers, rocket leaves and balsamic sauce was a sensational delight. The rocket leaves provide a nutty and crunchy taste, which the cheese brought it to another level of SHIOKness. I would say, this is a MUST-ORDER as well.
Gioia Pizza is a food lover’s sanctuary in the heart of the CBD, a place where the artistry of Italian cuisine comes to life. Their dedication to using fresh ingredients and hand-crafted techniques ensures that every dish is a harmonious blend of flavours. Whether you’re craving a classic Margherita or a luxurious Pizza Tartufo, or if you’re more inclined toward their scrumptious sandwiches and creamy pasta, Gioia Pizza promises an experience that will keep you coming back for more. So, if you’re looking for an unforgettable dining adventure, head over to Gioia Pizza and let your taste buds embark on a remarkable journey through the world of Italian cuisine.
