“Fantastic Food and Affordable Price”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

We happened on this place walking back from Pristine Beach on a cloudy day, only staying in Puerto to get a stitch the next day to go to Underground River. What a luck!!! Absolutly delightful. We have been to many Italian restaurant and many of them in Australia and Italy. This one is very authentic and the good thing is that it has affordable prices and high quality of food. Well done. At the end of the lunch they also offered us Homemade Coffee cream liquor.....Great taste! Really special.
Don't miss that.

“Authentic Italian with Friendly Service”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

We were craving some decent Italian cuisine with service to match - we found it.

Tina and Nic provide an authentic menu and informal relaxed atmosphere to dine.

After plenty of disappointments with food throughout the Philippines, we looked forward to having dinner here and were not disappointed. Plenty to chose from on their menu and Tina was more than happy to make recommendations with a smile.

Make sure you bring a healthy appetite.....

“Loved it!”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

I read about this resto on this site and wondered how hard it is to find. Turns out they are a few meters from where my friend lives on Villarosa St. Awesome! If I even never told her she wouldn't have known about it. Food was great, for its Philippine setting, quite authentic. Run by an Italian couple, she's from Florence, her husband, the Chef, from Sicily. We had 2 pizzas, Sausage (homemade) and cheese and tuna, olives and Cheese. The tuna was the stand out as you could taste all the ingredients specially the tuna. The Parmigiana melanzane, was light and delicious , the Spaghetti Carbonara was great. For dessert we had their home made yogurt with fresh fruit. All priced quite affordably too. They're only open from 5-9:30pm. We intend to go back soon to try other items on the menu.

The place is small, very simple,it's like eating at a friends house, with a few tables set outside a covered terrace. There's wi-fi too! If you have time, it's a must try.

“Real italian, from the food till the atmosfear. Don' miss it!!!!”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Great. Nic and Tina, the italians owner, run this cool place with passion, personality and the food it' awesome. Just 5 minutes from the airport, quiet location inside a little garden, you can enjoy drinking good wine and eat gret food. They are ready for suggestion around the city and they showed to my filippina wife and me a real friendship. It' s the best place in Puerto if you like good food.
