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

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 place is refined and formal with lots of paintings and decorations for sale. The service is really good, orders arrived promptly and dishes are delicious. We had the Ceasar's salad, putanesca and the pizza with sausages and ham (I forgot the name), all of which are very tasty and in generous amounts. I definitely recommend this for Italian-food lovers.

We wanted to try a restaurant we hadn't tried yet so my host brought us to Italia. Nice and clean with very efficient staff. We enjoyed our dinner particularly the beef carpaccio and the pizza. Had a risotto as well which was well done. Quite surprising to find such a nice Italian restaurant in Bacolod.

If I'd be looking for an excellent place where I can truly relax, I'd go to Italia. Aside from their pleasant service, the presentation of the menu, the excellent fine dining experience, and the uniqueness of the paintings makes me really feel welcomed and well-served. And the food! The food is to-die-for! The Paella was exceptional!! By the taste of... More

The food was somewhat convincing but the service stinks, as usual in the Philippines. It's a bit expensive for local food, but I need a break from the garbage the locals call "food." You might have no choice but to try it out of desperation.

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
