As the name says, Italianni's serves food which is inspired by Italy, and Europe generally. Their Mall of Asia restaurant is large, and can easily accommodate big groups of guests. The menu has a large variety of pasta dishes, meats (beef, pork, chicken, lamb, veal), and other specialties, ranging... read more

I have nothing bad to say about this restaurant: good food, great service and (I know my wife is going to scold me for saying this) even the waitresses are beautiful!

There are many choices you can make depending on how hungry one is. The Ceasar salad is nice and simple and the pasta portions are enough to share if you order 2 for 4 people.

After declaring that I would not go here again I relented as my business associate requested that we go there for dinner. Our food was the usual small size main of just passable food quality and my friend ordered the seafood pasta. The unfortunate result is that my friend is now bed ridden with food poisoning. What are they doing... More

I have been a frequent diner at Italianni's for more than 20 years and it has been a Makati icon but recently, possibly because of a new chef, it has completely collapsed in terms of food quality, presentation, serving size and has achieved an all time low in culinary standard. It still trades on it's reputation from the past but... More

Love their food, but disappointed with the portion of my favorite silician chicken salad. You have to pay extra for the chicken which is part of the salad before. The price of salad itself is expensive already, now you need to pay extra. its ok if they lower the price when they remove the chicken, but its not, price is... More

Just had breakfast this morning there. Pros: 1) outside sitting area + view are very good 2) friendly professional staff 3) reasonable prices 4) presentable food Cons: 1) food looks better than it tastes. 2) service is slow although the place was almost empty 3) internet doesn't work Would I return there? ...nope.

Ordered a starter then a regular sive main course each. We couldn't eat it all or anywhere near it. The food was great and to be honest I was nearly full after the starter.

Italiannis at town used to be my hubby's comfort food restaurant. We normally order 1 pizza and 1 pasta to share. Last December we decided to try the set meal (pasta, chicken and meat) for a change. We were really disappointed with the food. Nothing special. Looks unappetizing. Not worth the price we paid for. What's worst. One of the... More
