Cluny Food Court is a food hall in Botanic Gardens with five concept stalls serving a variety of cuisines.
The airy food court in the balmy gardens is managed by Les Amis Group, one of Singapore’s prolific restaurant Groups most notably known for its eponymous three-Michelin-Star fine dining restaurant.
However, none of the Group’s brands is halal-certified, until now.
The first halal-certified concept by Peperoni Pizzeria, a brand under Les Amis Group, is a pizza stall in Cluny Food Court called Piccante Pronto.
According to its website, the brand is spearheaded by a Muslim chef who has had extensive training in Italian Cuisine.
The brand also just announced on social media that it is now MUIS halal-certified.
Piccante Pronto specialises in Roman-style thin-crust pizzas, alongside other Italian dishes like baked pastas, antipasti (small savoury dishes), salads, and sides.
As it is a food stall, the menu may be condensed but it is no less exciting.
Classic pizza offerings like Margherita, Haiwaiian, and Pollo Arrabiatta are available, although we’d probably go straight for the regale-sounding Suprema which has Chicken Sausage, Shiitake, Onion, and Red Chili Padi.
Prices start from S$12.50 for a 9″ to S$48 for a 21″ XXL pizza.
For more indulgent pizzas, the Speciale menu offers more bougie versions including the Quattro Formaggi which is a melange of four cheeses (Mozzarella, Brie, Scamorza, and Danish Blue), and the Carne comprising of Beef Meatballs, Turkey Ham, Beef Pepperoni, and Mozzarella.
Prices range from S$15 to S$60 for these series.
Besides pizza, the stall also offers other moreish dishes like Baked Pasta (S$10 – S$12), Antipasto (from S$6), Salads (S$8) and Sides (from S$4).

Open-air dining space
Visually, the dining area in Cluny Food Court is a notch above your standard food court, however there is no aircon here so we imagine you might break a sweat just getting here.
Also, aside from Piccante Pronto, there is only one other halal stall—Project Penyek by Ansar—so halal food may be limited.
But….drink stall aside, two out of four halal food stalls ain’t shabby IMO.
It’s also worth mentioning that getting there might be challenging if you’re taking public transport—the Botanic Gardens MRT station is still 1km away.
