Went on A Thursday night thinking the place would be quite but I was mistaken. 8 people in our party worried that we might not be able to get a table. Luckily Pipo the owner gave us an option to sit in his overflow area that has a feel of a private room for our family. We had 3 kinds... More

I expected more from the italian food they served. Although some were tasty, I think they could be more consistent. Their prices were a bit too high.

I've gone back to this restaurant thrice and I love ordering the same food. It's beef cotaletta with potatoes. And when you put in a drizzle of lemon juice, it's absolutely mouthwatering. Recently they've updated the place and theyre making more improvements. I'll go back again

I fell in love with this place the first time I went here with some classmates because of the friendly staff and incredibly delicious food. I returned after a few months later with a friend and the waitresses even remembered me. Also got to chat with Pipo, the owner, who shared the table and stories about his business and stay... More

The food was really good, we had a pizza margherita and pasta, and we both agreed it's one of the best we've had. Comparable to the big name restaurants back in Manila. Do check out the... More

A very accessible place in Tagaytay and the drive is so worth it. Very nice view of the volcano on the way up there. It's a SMALL cozy Italian resto with GREAT food. Servings here are a bit generous so it's advisable to not dine alone - group dining is preferable. There were 8 of us so we had room... More
