Va' Pensiero provides a soup to nuts (ok, soup to limoncello) Italian dining experience. I've been there many times and my only complaint is that they've had to trim their impressive menu because the clientele do not seem to appreciate all the great dishes on offer.
The staff make an effort to remember the regulars and their favorite menu choices, often sneaking in a little extra bread or a gratis shot of grappa or Vino Santo. During the UAAP Basketball season, you will be able to order pasta in your team's colors. If you are a regular, the staff will discreetly wish your team the best of luck, taking care not to antagonize the other diners.
Remember that the bill does not have a service charge, so be generous in victory or defeat and you will be rewarded.
This weekend, I'm going to take up the owner on his boast that they make a killer Olive Oil cake (special advance order required). He hasn't disappointed me, yet.
