i am possibly one of the earliest patrons of this restaurant when they opened their first branch in robinsons' galleria. owned by an italian and his lovely filipina wife, the service was fast and interestingly personal as the owner usually goes around to greet the customers. perhaps it's just me but i think the original restaurant serve a much flavorful pasta than the one in greenbelt.
my foodie companion got this yet unnamed pasta and piadina combination (cat? cat???)
in any case, it was a bit interesting as people stared while we poked, twirled, arranged and moved around our plates for a perfect shot. must have looked worse than the japanese tourists flashing their trademark V pose and grinning from ear to ear. we would have done that too except that pasta on teeth is not really a glamorous pose.
Unsolicited Tip: they serve the dish with whole fresh garlic pickled in olive oil. make sure to get one and crumble it to bits and spread it over your pasta for that extra garlic zing!
