My girlfriend thought I was crazy to try an Italian restaurant in the Philippines but it tuned out I was completely rational! I needed a break from rice and fry, so we tried this little Italian restaurant not far from the airport and main street. Not expecting much, I'm half Italian and I know that Italian food abroad is not... More

The food: the pasta was overcooked, and the sauce was too thin. While it didn't taste bad, the pizza crust is underbaked, and the minced beef pieces looked like food I feed my dog. The cheese platter had addictive cheese pieces but these must have been imported, and thus testament only to their eye for good cheese, and not indicative... More

Since our last visit many things have changed and, if possible, even better. Their fresh pastas remain excellent, we tried the new potato ravioli with pummarola sauce , super tasty. La Tana Della Libellula is the best Italian restaurant in Palawan, absolutely unrivaled in my opinion. My partner had their famous Potato Gnocchi and were, as usual, very good, their... More

Delicious and authentic Italian food which is wholesome and filling. The prices are a little more expensive than other places in the city but for that you get superb quality and brilliant, attentive service. Make sure you leave room for their fantastic gelato too!

I had the pleasure of dinning here today and having my order of gnocchi. I almost did not order the gnocchi since I am not a fan of blue cheese, but I usually judge an Italian restaurant with their gnocchi if they have it on the menu. The gnocchi they served was well portioned, very light, fluffy, and the flavor... More

We were going to visit La Tana Della for dinner one evening, but there was a powercut in Puerto Princesa, and when we arrived at La Tana Della, there didn't appear to be any lights on, so we assumed they didn't have a back-up generator for the restaurant, and ate at another restaurant.

Delighted they have added new dishes to the menu. It took me 15 minutes just to choose the main course. Ambrosia drink the best!
