The tomato-based pasta & pizza are as Italian food should be = NOT SWEET. Only Pinoys love sweet tomato sauce :P Great overall review from a group of 5 aged 11 to 49 - special pizza and pasta fruti di mare. The pizza is filling though thin crust. The carbonara's bacon bits was quite generous but was expecting it to be a little creamier - maybe on the second visit will try to request it (if ordered) and will prod more on how foods are prepared. This was the first visit so we wanted to see what they had and didn't make much request.
The ribs sizes were OK but found the choice cut to be a little fatty. We like fat but not that much. Unfortunately no pictures to show you, sorry. Mixed review on taste: my nephew said OK, a couple of us said needed a bit more salt. Table salt & pepper were provided so no worries.
Next time, must try desserts - affogato & gelato only on the menu, currently.
Expected it to be pricey (thanks to TripAdvisor) so not at all disappointed with that.
The brick oven is cool but the ventilation could use improvement. 1 or 2 powerful suction exhaust (fan & pipe) would certainly help dissipate the smoke away from patrons. I can appreciate that the ceiling fan set-up right now is relieving the "oven-duty staff" from heat and smoke but it was also fanning the smoke to the patrons.
Its location on the ground floor is ok for senior citizens & PWD so that's a plus. Won't hesitate to bring our elderlies next time.
