Must-try pizza and pasta in El Nido!

I love their thin crust pizza and tasty pasta. This is a must try in El Nido, but make sure you make time for waiting in line as there are so many tourists who flock in this restaurant. The owner is so accommodating. But since pizza's are made in the "pugon", you need to wait a little longer. I... read more

On our five days stay in el Nido, we spent two evenings in that place. The food is really delicious and comes close to traditional and typicall food in Italy. I especially recommend the pizzas, their pastry is really thin and fluffy. Nevertheless also the pasta is a great choice. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very good and from... More

Pizza was really delicious. Starter was quite blunt. A good choice if you want a break from Asian food.

When in El Nido dont miss this brick oven pizza place! There is not much places to dine for good food and good ambiance and Altrove is a jackpot! Plus the owner is an Italian who moved to Palawan for the love of the island and pizza! Visit my travel blog for more info www.biyahenibeth.wordpress.com

Absolutely loved Altrove's fresh wood fired pizza!! thin and authentic and delicious like Italy- we couldn't believe it! The pastas were fresh and cooked well and the salad was great! Highly recommend!

They've only got one-size pizza and that is 14" in diameter but you can order half-half depending on your preference. We got half hungarian sausage and half pizza bianca and had a satisfying meal. Drink selection was kinda limited. Wasn't happy with my frozen margarita. Price was reasonable.

People line up every night to be seated here. Food is really good but not cheap of course. Their pasta serving is big and their pizza dough is chewy soft! We planned on eating in different restaurants during our stay but we had to go back again for their pizza. One must eat here when in El Nido.

I am sorry to write such a terrible review but our experience there was indeed terrible and it's only fair that I warn fellow travellers. To call this food italian is insulting to italian food! Not only that, I found the food to be just horrible period. The "pizza" was gluey, the "pasta" was overcooked (need I say more? ;)... More

The place is very easy to find and they have tables that were overlooking the main street. We arrived from our island hopping and we decided to have dinner before going back to the hotel. Although we were not dressed for a romantic dinner, they accepted us and served us quick, delicious pizza and pasta.

Went for 2 night in a row during our stay in El Nido . Service was friendly. All dishes we had were delicious, i like the pizza bianca the most. It’s a barefoot restaurant with good atmosphere by nice setting and candlelight . No A/C but with all the wooden shutters and fan open, it’s comfortable enough. (the only point... More
