Italiannis Restaurant in Makati City - Philippines
It was the Italians who introduced us to the world of pasta and pizza. It is but proper to say, then, that there is no one who does pasta and pizza best other than them. Italianni's Restaurant, located at the food strip of Greenbelt 2 in Ayala Makati, serves the best proof to that statement.
Italianni's menu is one of the most appetizing and delectable lineups of Italian cuisine you could ever find in the Philippines. It offers a wide array of pasta and pizza dishes on top of rice meals and other recipes that imbues the homemade Italian appeal consistently.
The pasta meals are made of different noodle shapes and sizes, different ingredients, different sauces, and different colors even - all are equally enticing and delightful in their very own sense. The classic Spaghetti Meatballs in tasty marinara sauce is always a winner. If you are adventurous enough, you could go for Penne Arrabiato, a spicy pasta dish with vodka.
The choices of Italianni's pizzas are also extensive and flavorful. Different toppings and different dough thickness mean different brands of satisfaction. It is really up to you to choose what suits your palette best. What we know for sure is that you will have a very hard time choosing between the Classic pizza with Italian sausage and Romano cheese and Quattro Formaggio Pizza, which features four of Italy's best cheeses - Asiago, Romano, Provolone and of course, Mozzarella.
But wait, Italianni's is not just about pasta and pizza. It also serves a wide array of rice meals beaming with the flavor of Italy. The Seafood Risotto is a sure winner in this case. Every dish at Italianni's is best accessorized with a tasty dessert that the restaurant also does amazingly. Panna Cotta and Chocolate Pecan Cluster are must-try sweets that will make you actually forget who you are.
Food this good must come with a price, right? Surprisingly, Italianni's offer the most reasonable prices for its very rich menu. For a complete Italian meal, you would probably need to shed something between 10 and 20 US dollars. Take note, however, that Italianni's is best experienced with company. The food servings are large and can fill in two hungry stomachs. If you take Italianni's that way, the cost becomes less.
In Italy, the recipes used in restaurants are usually hand-me-downs from the ancestors of the old country. That's what Italianni's tried to achieve and was able to do so after years and years of hard work. The restaurant made sure that every guest would be able to experience what is traditionally Italian not only with the way food is prepared and served but also with the ambience. Italianni's, especially the one in Greenbelt 2, echoes how most Italian homes are. The laid back, pleasant mood felt around the place is very alluring you will not be able to keep track of time.
