Delicious cuisine, a little pricey but worth the money! Restaurant is located at the end of white beach close to Tamaraw beach. I had Pizza there and a fish dish. The Italian owner is a nice fellow.

We always eat at this restaurant whenever we are in Puerto Galera. Nice, quaint place. It is on the right-most side of White Beach and has a wonderful view of the whole beach especially at night. Their pizzas are to die for. Try their Napoli, it's the best. Pastas are very good as well. We tried their Marinara in white... More

We ate here twice on vacation in February 2014, loved it the first night, came back a couple nights later. Some of best Italian food I've ever had. Ideal location, up on the cliff at the far end of White Beach, great view, great interior, worth the short walk to get there. Had tanigue fish with fingerling potatoes and squid... More

This restaurant is located at the side of White Beach. you will pass by this place if you want to go to Talipanan beach.. They serve the typical Italian dishes such as pizza, coffee, and pasta. The place is also customized so you can really feel the Italian ambiance.

This place has probably the best location on White Beach because it's perched on top of a cliff and has a full view of White Beach. It's a little pricey so it's not usually crowded and has a cozy feeling. Food is alright but could use some improvement. Our caprese salad was supposed to come with mozzarella but came with... More

you would think since the owner is italian that you would get some good pizza.. i have never actually had bad pizza before but i guess that streak was due to be broken. who ever heard of pizza where peperoni is not an option? they just dont have it. i actually threw up shortly after leaving the place.

Very nice view from the restaurant! Puerto Galera is not a luxury spot and it is very hard to find a decent place to eat. Ciao Italia is the best one. Girls working there are very nice and attentive. Pizza is good. Tiramisu and Banana Tropicana were delicious. The coffee machine was not working (broken and can be fixed only... More

I took a date here and we got caught in a downpour, then the power went out. Bad date? Nope, we watched the lightning storm over White beach as we dined by candle light on Ciao Italia's tasty pizza. Good times!

I expected very yummy food in this restaurant. but for me, it's in between of average and very good. average - maybe because I am not used into italian, just like the putanesca a very sour pasta but the carbonara is good my girlfriend's favorite any kind of carbonara. haha but I found it delicious. and we also ordered pizza...
