GOOD 1. Accommodating and polite staff. 2. Parmesan cheese is free upon request. 3. Food is okay. BAD 1. According to one of its female staff, the restaurant changed management last Thursday, July 18, 2013, so the LASAGNA was removed from its menu.

This is the only place I've been to in Metro Manila where the pizza actually tastes like it came from Italy, none of that commercialized doughy pizza, this is the real thing. :)

Va' Pensiero provides a soup to nuts (ok, soup to limoncello) Italian dining experience.

love the pizza at this place. definitely not your typical pizza store that churns out almost carbon copy pizzas. the spinach canoli was just delish! also love the place. it has such a homey feel to it. will be back for more. for sure.

I was there mid-afternoon so it was not busy. I had a passable pizza, which was served within about 15 minutes of my order being placed.
