Put the boot on the beach

I found this a very interesting dinning experience a lot of effort was put in to make us welcome. The food had a taste all of its own a weird mix of local and Italian I enjoyed it and would recommend you indulge

Highly recommended Italian Restaurant. They serve authentic Italian food and their chef is Italian too so maybe that's why. They serve really great pizza the Ciao Italia pasta must try. They also got a very nice view of the sea.

This was by far the best meal and restaurant I had in PG. I love Italian & western food so there isn't that much of a selection in PG but this place was great. Their thin crust pizza killed it & we had cheese sticks which were on point! Best of all they have an amazing view of white beach... More

Pizza was very good, and homemade pasta was excellent, something that I think everybody should try. Restaurant also is in the best area of White Beach, it's on the top of the rocks, in the end of the beach, it has best view to both land and sea, in the whole white beach. Owner and chief (who is same) is... More

I decided to try this restaurant on new years eve 2014 after reading some positive reviews to TripAdvisor. The positive reviews on this restaurant are way overrated. Firstly the waitresses are not friendly or enthusiastic about their job. This aspect didn't bother me that much as I was there for the food. What did bother me immensely was the quality... More

This is the only place in White Beach where you will get real Italian food and pizza. It sits at the far end of the beach and from a distance its is hard to tell if it is really open. Take the walk and you will find a small, quaint place that sits up high over the rocks with a... More

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
