Our dining experiences were always superb. The staff were so nice. But its their food that you should try. Had their tomato based calamari pasta. Great taste! but It was so drenched with butter/oil. Nevertheless, still great cooking. Their panna cotta always had me! Nom!

I had no reservation when I arrived at the place (actually named Cucina Italia) where I always dine when in Bacolod. On a (payday) Friday night it was packed, which speaks for itself. So I sat outside not benefiting from the table cloth and the nice ambiance of the "sala". But the food being the reason of going there I... More

No doubt, the food is top-notch -- pizza, pasta, and the beef carpaccio! Another reason why I enjoyed my dining experience at Italia is the ambience. It has great art and interiors and the staff are attentive so you get a feeling that it is not just your usual casual restaurant. At the same time, it is not snobbish and... More

Was in Bacolod with family for the weekend, and a friend recommended trying out Italia. We really enjoyed our time there! The food was delectable (try the pasta calamari or the double chorizo -- the latter we ordered again cause it was just that good), and the ambiance was just right for a night with family. Italian at its best... More

The place has a nice atmosphere. Displayed are paintings and a sculpture from famous Filipino artists. The price is high for Bacolod standards supposedly but for elsewehere it is a good value considering most Italian restaurants elsewhere in the Philippines would cost Php 500 up. For people looking for Italian food in Bacolod than this place is good. The dishes... More

A good three years have passed since I first ate in this restaurant and between that time and my most recent visit yesterday, I have been to many places far and wide that served Italian food in as many forms as the human mind can imagine. Of those places that I have been to thus far, I can unequivocally say... More

Great food and great service. Truly an ideal place to spend time with family and friends. Italia has always been a go to place for the locals of Bacolod, more so now since it relocated to somewhere with better parking and accessibility. Art lovers will love restaurant's interior which boasts artwork from various local and national artists. You can check... More

Me and my girlfriend headed over here the other night while we were looking for restaurants along Lacson St. The waiters and dining staff were very accommodating and you could really tell a lot of the patrons felt at home at the place. The ambiance was really alive at this place with the other guests happily chatting away over the... More

Nicely decorated place that displays various artworks. Food is very erratic especially the pasta, which can be delicate and balanced to insanely rich and swimming in artery clogging sauce. In general though, rest of the dishes are over seasoned and greasy. Wines are not stored properly and are going, or have turned bad, as they just leave them right by... More

Been a regular of Italia even when they were still near riverside. At paseo verde, first advantage is the ample parking space. They still serve their classic food. My favorite are butterfly noodles Tartuffo. It's a creamy sauce with truffle, beef filetto steak....too many and all so delicious.

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
