“Superb pizza in Sabang”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Surprisingly good pizza and pasta in Sabang, Puerto Galera. The pizza came out of a wood fired oven imported from Italy, and the pasta homemade. It is a very tiny, unassuming place, with I think three tables. The owner is a Canadian retiree named Hank who lived most of his adult life in Western Australia, and apparently learned the trade from Italian immigrants.

It's the little details that make the food good. eg. homemade pasta for the spaghetti bolognese, and the ragu had a real depth of flavour as it was made from shredded beef stew meat that had properly simmered for hours, not typical boring mince. Pizzas come with all imported charcuterie and cheeses, and amazingly, there's no extra charge for extra toppings. Oh and there is a no-pay guarantee too if you don't like your food.

The owner also sounded very proud of his burger- prime aussie beef, home-baked bun etc, so I guess we will be trying that next time.

“Excellent Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Really really good. Tiny little place - no frills but worth sitting on the street basically for the pizza. Best pizza I've had since moving to the Philippines a year ago! They deliver too!

“Excellent mango and banana shake.”

And the pizza is pretty good as well. Sitting at the outside tables makes for great people watching.

“Great Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Good pizza and coffee, service fantastic and reasonable prices. If you get busier, some more indoor seating might be needed, (reserve me a spot please.. ;-)...)
