? Total: P1583
Oddly situated on a gasoline station in the middle of EDSA is this quaint restaurant that serves delectable authentic Italian dishes.
It was lunchtime on our visit, just in time to take advantage of their Business Lunch Promo. We arrived there earlier than usual so we thought we were the first customers, but few minutes after, people started to come in and made the little place full of hungry lovely customers.
We got extra excited upon seeing their awards from different organizations, a good sign they offer good food and service.
We were initially served a complimentary bread plate with tomato pesto salsa. It was good for a starter.
1. Business Lunch 1 (P399)
Creamy Gorgonzola Polenta – mixed mushrooms, lemon and parsley. The best Italian appetizer we’ve had. It’s rich, creamy and very flavorful. The mushrooms sitting on top were evenly sautéed.
Black Ink Linguine – zucchini, olive oil, clams and mussels tossed in black ink linguine with merely olive oil. The taste was very light and complemented the polenta very well.
2. Business Lunch 2 (P399)
Tomato Soup – mozzarella cheese, basil pesto, and black ink quadrucci. This one’s the ultimate comfort food. The soup was condensed and tasted like summer served in a bowl. And as pesto lovers, the basil pesto drizzle made this one even more wonderful.
Tortellini Bolognese – this hat-shaped pasta was a first on our book. It was served with a light parmesan cheese fondue and generously sprinkled with arugula.
Chicken Milanese (P550) – deep-fried chicken breast battered and covered with crumbs topped with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, with lettuce and potatoes on the side. We find the fillet a bit thin and wished it was bigger for the price.
House Iced Tea (P140) – their iced tea was fine though kinda expensive for the serving. Best to order wine instead.
Overall, we’d highly recommend this place to anyone craving for an legit Italian food.
Value for money: Worth it! Best to go here during lunch time to avail their Business Lunch Promo and get huge savings than ordering several a la carte dishes.
