The restaurant officially opened its doors to the public on May of 2000. One good reason why it came to be was simply to share great Italian cooking to everyone. This was the reason why Italia opened a decade ago, without a menu and no plans nor professional staff to speak of, save for a funny looking Italian,, who cooked really good pasta. And this is the same reason now - ten years after. Be it as it may have developed through the years, the challenge remains the same of serving simply good food to those who walk through the red door.

Must-try in Bacolod

If I'd be looking for an excellent place where I can truly relax, I'd go to Italia. Aside from their pleasant service, the presentation of the menu, the excellent fine dining experience, and the uniqueness of the paintings makes me really feel welcomed and well-served. And the food!

The food was somewhat convincing but the service stinks, as usual in the Philippines. It's a bit expensive for local food, but I need a break from the garbage the locals call "food." You might have no choice but to try it out of desperation.

The place is very nice to have a dinner in a nice atmosphere. The restaurant has a charcoal oven to make good pizzas. Their menu is Italian. The saltimbocca I ordered was not really a saltimbocca but it was very good.

My wife and I have been here twice in a fortnight. The first occasion was a walk in and given bacolod isn't really to the standards of much larger metropolis on the food front, I was not expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised. I opted for the seafood pasta and asked if this could be combined with arrabiata. This was... More

Italia's is one of the best Italian-oriented restaurants I've been to, not only in Bacolod but in the country. You'll find this place in a quiet side street in Bacolod. Unassuming, cozy with a small art gallery and some homely decor. Food is great, better than many of the italian-oriented restaurants in the country. Pasta is good, not great, but... More

Italia is a cozy Italian restaurant hidden in one of Bacolod's small side streets. It's one of the few places in town whose food has been consistent through the years. Great for couples and small gatherings. I recommend the baked oysters and the pizzas made with their very own brick oven. Hat's off to Mario who does his best to... More
