“A Little Piece of Tuscany in Lipa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

This exquisite Italian restaurant is certainly worth a stop when in Lipa. The owners must have been obsessed with Tuscany as you can see that the details of the interior and facade of the restaurant are spot on. We were a group of 20 on a Saturday lunch and all of the dishes we ordered were very good and flavorful. My favorite though was the Tagliatelle Tartufo (Tagliatelle in truffle sauce wrapped in prosciutto). We also ordered the Penne Gamberetti, Rustica Pizza, Pescatora Pizza, and Pizzaiola. Pasta was perfectly al dente and the thin pizza crust fresh. To finish off, we had Nespresso coffee (they also have Lavazza) with their very sinful Tiramisu (which was done the way it should be!) that was worth every calorie you take.

“The only decent resturant in Lipa City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Excellent Italian Restaurant. High quality food and excellent service..
A little bit out of the city but well worth the journey.
Expensive but nevertheless worth it.
Has good ambience.

“Quite a gem in Lipa City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

What a great find! I certainly didn't expect this cozy little restaurant in Lipa. The ambience was great and the food as well. On my family's first visit to Lipa, my relatives brought us to this Italian restaurant, not expecting this in the middle of nowhere (since it was dark, I couldn't really see if there are other establishments nearby) and what a gem it was. My children who are picky eaters had quite a mouthful of fettucine alfredo as well as the calamari and pizza. We loved our dining experience here at Casa Marikit. The whole ambience, food and the servers were great! We had panna cotta which was delicious. The menu, it seems, is more northern Italian. My one recommendation to the owners though: they could, however, turn down the air conditioner just a tad bit. Our server was more than accomodating but just couldn't get it quite right.

“Small and cozy Italian Wine Cellar Inspired”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Limited selection of red wine but well chosen by the chef-owner(?) maitre D. Pricey even if served per glass.

Service crew well trained and knowledgeable about what's available today so ordering was easy.

We were the only lunch customers so service was fast and the attention obviously good.

Portions were small but nicely done.. Leaving you wanting for more. We had pasta and sea food and settled for the free dessert promo -- an Italian version of chocolate cake. This was disappointing but it was after all a freebie. Sickeningly sweet said the Mrs.

Coffee was,superb! I'm a coffee addict so there.

Overall not bad for Lipa!
