Thanks to the chef we actually had the original bruschetta for the first time. Good Italian food , good pricing and quantity too. We were late so they only had pasta and spaghetti available
We went here as our romantic dinner during Christmas. We ordered cheese/meat platter, wine, pasta and steak. The food was really good, except steak... It was supposed to be medium rare, but some parts were so chewy that we literally couldn't cut tendons in it (neither knife or teeth). I'm no expert in steaks, but I don't think that that part should be used as steak. I'm sure other people will find their experience better, but for us it tainted our Christmas dinner, unfortunately.
Incredibly delicious pizza and octopus in fair price. Friendly service without service charge. In addition, there are not many places in El Nido that takes credit cards and provides AC, which makes this place very recommendable.
Ciao, I am Italian, and have been searching for a decent pizza for days in Boracay but could not find one. Before coming to El Nido, I did an intense research about the Italian restaurants. Reading the negative reviews but especially the professional replies from the Roman owner La Lupa convinced me to come and try this place. As expected the pizza was great, you can really tell the quality of the ingredients and my bill for one pizza Margherita + water was less than 7usd - absolutely great price and excellent quality of ingredients! The staff was also very nice and efficient. On top there was no electricity on the island at that moment, but they still made me feel comfortable and provided everything without extra waiting time. There were two Italians on the table next to me who were also eating a very good looking 4 stagioni pizza. I feel sorry for the owner of this place who probably had to make some changes to prices and staff due to those ignorant bad reviews, but don’t let these reviews fool you! Always read the owners reply to see both sides of stories and then judge for yourself. Very good job would go back anytime!
**if you look at the negative reviews, you will see how the owner cannot take criticism and gets nasty in some of his remarks. With that said: Original review : A guy recommended this place, so I was SO excited to try it. My friend and I walked in and the place was empty. All the workers stared and didn’t say anything. We sat down eventually and we looked at the high prices and thought, “OK, no big deal; high prices probably mean amazing and quality ingredients.” The pizza was pretty mediocre. Crust fell apart, the tomato sauce was watery and there was barely any cheese. The picture proves my point. The egg yolk was kind just thrown about. Service and food poor. Ugh, I wanted to like it so badly. How hard is to mess up pizza? And an Italian restaurant?!? Very disappointed Replying to the owner about my review. You’re a sad man. Grow up
