ABOUT ME

An Italian home in Singapore.
Slow food, homemade, with patience and love.
Welcome to my home, to experience and discover the flavours of Italy

“Casa Nostra” means “Our Home”. That’s where you are welcome to enjoy the unique experience of Italian home-style family cooking.

“Casa Nostra” was born from 10 years of regularly sharing authentic Italian food with my close friends at my house here in Singapore. Our tradition has been to gather every Sunday lunch and spend the day enjoying good company with food and wine.

I grew up spending days at my grandmother's house in Abruzzo, witnessing the preparation of fresh pasta and the harvesting and canning of seasonal tomatoes. At my hometown in Veneto, with my extended family, I spent my youth taking part in traditional culinary initiatives such as the preparation of salami and sausages in the winter, the milling of polenta flour and the daily milking and preparation of cheese.

I am bringing to Singapore my favourite dishes from my childhood as well as my extensive travel in my home country, selecting the best from my favourite regional cuisines, with special attention to the Italian basics such as Pasta and Pizza, which is what I believe make Italian food shine at its best.

MY FOOD

The Italian countryside style of life is based on self-sustainance. Grow your own, make your own.

I enjoy bringing Italian cuisine back to basics, growing or making everything possible in-house. From the cold cuts to the burrata. From the Italian home grown herbs to the artisanal gelato.

Pizza is my lifetime passion, and I am proud to have created a few unique pizza crusts that provide a different sensorial experience.

Newpolitan®: My signature crust inspired by the Neapolitan tradition, but with my own techniques appied to it, for a completely different feel of airiness and lightness. The secret lies in "Tipo 0/1" flours sourced from artisan mills, and my very own fermentation technique spanning across 72 hours end to end.

Supercrunch®: A one of a kind crust that delivers a unique lightness and crunch. The secret lies in the use of ancient grains such as "Grano del Miracolo", high hydration, and a fermentation of over 48 hours, including prefermentation. The combination of these ingredients and techniques brings out a crust that's light, crunchy and fragrant and pairs well with a different set of toppings than the Newpolitan crust
