Real Wood Fire Oven = great pizza

Although the selection of pies is fairly limited, this small place on the main drag in Sabang does thin crust, Napoli style pizza very well. Service was good, nice liquor selection including some real Italian Grappa, which was quite surprising! Highly recommended.

Thank you for your kind review. Regarding the limited choice of pizzas, we are only limited by the toppings we can obtain in the Phulippines. Here in Puerto Galera or Sabang we have no choice at all and we must get our ingredients from Manila from importers who do not cater to pizzerias . Hence the limit on choices. However... More

We were total by an American couple that the pizza was great at this restaurant. We rate is as "OK". The crust was flavorless and did not seem homemade. The sauce was OK. The ingredients were saltier than we had ever had on pizza before. It is located in the center of Sabang town and the view and people watching... More

Thank you for your review. Crust without flavor. I would imagine you are used to thick crusts as supplied by most pizzerias in the US. Our recipe which by the way is made in house as is our sauce and seasoned to the traditional Italian way. The crust of a pizza is the carrier of the toppings so how can... More

We was really exited for pizza, when we saw the price we were a little bit surprised. There was small, large and family size. A large pepperoni costed 490 pesos. So we decided to split a large because of the price. Unfortanlly the so called large pizza was not even enough for 1 person and we were 2 splitting. The... More

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you felt the pizza was not large enough and left hungry. We make a traditional Italian wood fired pizza and as such it is a thin crust pizza. Perhaps you are used to the think bread type pizzas that Shakeus make and as such are find up with bread rather than good quality... More

To start with - I am a Vegetarian so it's hard for a Pure vegetarian to survive in the Pines as the Veg options are very miniscule..

Ordered both a large Prosciutto and Meat Lovers pizza. The Meat Lovers is apparently the most popular, and whilst it was good I thought the Prosciutto was sublime and it was favored by all. They don't just serve pizza though, the Italian semolina flour based pasta sounded tempting too. It's a shame I'm only on the island for a couple... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our pizzeria. Pleased that you enjoyed the pizzas and perhaps the next visit you can try our home made pasta which we make ourselves. Not pasta boxes here. Even the bacon for the carbonara is smoked in house. We only use the best ingredients on our pizzas and pastas. Our motto "If... More

What sort of review is this.WHAT? What would you Evan review a pizzeria if you had no intention of eating a pizza in the Philippines.

I tried their pizza twice while I was getting my scuba certification in Sabang. Very good pizza! Nice friendly staff. Outside patio area is great for people-watching on the main street. Prices were a bit high compared to other places, but still very reasonable!

The pasta and the pizza were both quite good, but it took 3 tries to get my drink, a tequila tonic. As my main dish is my cocktail, I was disappointed.
