My wife and I visited Pizzeria Michaelangelo for the first time and honestly were a little skeptical about having authentic Italian pizza available in Cebu. Most of the pizza in the city is the regular chain-type (Shakey's, Yellow Cab, Pizza Hut...). Plus we have been able to visit pizzerias throughout Italy during our travels, including in Napoli, the birthplace of pizza.
Everything we ordered was the top quality. We started with a hummus dip for an appetizer. We followed it with a fish with olive oil wrapped in foil. I'm not usually much on fish, but this was delicious. Then out came our main course, the pizza. I can't remember the name of the pizza we ordered, but it came with meat, cheese, and arugula on top. It is by far the best pizza we have had in Cebu, and one of the best outside of Italy. The arugula was fresh and added so much, we were very impressed. We finished with desserts, my wife had the chocolate mousse, which was a combination of white and milk chocolate. I had the tiramisu and both were excellent. Along with our dessert we ordered coffee which came from a high-end, single serve machine.
The staff is so friendly and kind and service was excellent. They took care of us without being intrusive during our meal. If you are lucky like we were, you can meet Massimo, the General Manager, who has a passion for the restaurant and is from Italy himself. We immediately understood how the food is so authentic. We are looking forward to visiting again to try other dishes!
