Description: The restaurant officially opened its doors to the public on May of 2000. One good reason why it came to be was simply to share great Italian cooking to everyone. This was the reason why Italia opened a decade ago, without a menu and no plans nor professional staff to speak of, save for a funny looking Italian,, who cooked really good pasta. And this is the same reason now - ten years after. Be it as it may have developed through the years, the challenge remains the same of serving simply good food to those who walk through the red door. Italia Restaurant is now located at GF Paseo Verde, Mandalagan Lacson Street, Bacolod City
Madrid, Spain

“Great place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Eat here with my friends every once in a while. We always enjoy their selection of meat dishes. The grilled steaks are just delicious but if you're looking passed the usual grill, the Saltimboca and Herb Butter Steak are definitely worth trying. Their pasta's pretty good too. I'd recommend the calamari.

“Good Italian Resto!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

...Had dinner here with my daughter and her friend. We had pizza, pasta and lambchops for me.
...The pizza was great and good sized for us three, the pasta with olives and mozarella cheese was the kids' favorite. My lambchops were juicy and to die for. Prices are a bit steep for Bacolod but well worth it.
...They had the same waiter for 11 years now. Says something about the place. Give it a try.

“Cheap but delectable Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

You'll love their brick oven-cooked pizza and good pasta dishes. It's near the Riverside Hospital and also a quiet place for meetings.
