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

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.
