When an Italian restaurant is owned and operated by the leading importer of Italian foodstuffs you expect good Italian food. Not so at Carpaccio.
OK, the beef carpaccio, parmesan, mozzarella, tomatoes and olive oil components of the starters were excellent. The two main course we terrible.
Sea bass at PhP 1,750 was a "portion control" serving, over-cooked and tasted "off". (Aubergine, a much more distinguished Manila eatery, charges PhP1,450 for their larger, perfectly cooked version.) So-called veal saltimbocca was inedible and came with a matching, over-salted sauce. It was sent back, the chef apologised for the saltiness (but not the ersatz veal) and we got one small dessert on the house as compensation but were still charged for the meat.
Our bottle of Valipolicella was very good but very over-priced.

Disappointing food. Bad Environment. The restaurant is located in a smelly and scary street. The inside is nicely decorated. The stuff is friendly. The food is not good. The beef carpaccio taste like poor beef. The pasta is OK. The desserts are terrible. it taste like soap. If you are looking for a good Italian place this is not the place for you since their pasts and Pizzas are not good there. If you have to go there order the Alla Burger it’s the best dish but still not worth 490php. Don’t take the risotto, they don’t know how to make good risotto.

We went to this restaurant for dinner on my husbonds birthday, and we had a really nice food-experience.
Service were excellent, winelist was great at fair prices and the food was perfect. We got their carpaccio classico, rucola-salad with parmasan, Risotto Porcini with chickenbreast and a gorgonzola pizza together with a bottle of Montepulciano. Ending the meal with expresso and grappa. We almost felt like sitting on Plaza Compo Di Fiori in the center of Rome - excellent food
and value for money. All in all 80 euro.
By the way - the same place you can visit their beautiful deli.

The Philippines has so many charms and advantages, yet I have to say, food is not really one of them. This particularly applies to foreign, western food, where I have struggled to find Phiplippine cooks who even "get" the concept. The quality of food, even in the top hotels, always leaves something to be desired.

Here, by contrast, we have authentic and very good Italian food, served by staff who know what they are doing. Service was prompt, attentive and the staff happy to make recommendations.

I had the lamb shank for main course, which was as good as I have had anywhere.

Locals might consider prices a little high, but by international standards, extremely reasonable.
