Italliani's: Culinary Prelude to Italy

Culinary Prelude to Italy

We came to Manila to renew our Schengen Visa for
my family’s upcoming Italian vacation. We stumbled
on Italliani’s in Glorietta and we decided to dine there.

Considered as one of the best Italian restaurants
in the Philippines, they serve American-Italian
traditional cuisine like pastas and pizzas.

They initially served a basket of Tuscan Bread
I’m not a fan of this pale-crusted bread, as it is
bland and unappetizing. It was served for free-
but I would not order one if I had to pay for it.

The Pizza Margherita was heaven served in a perfectly chewy
dough. Topped with tomatoes, and oozing with the delightfully
intermixing flavors of four kinds of cheeses- mozzarella, asiago,
parmesan and provolone, abundantly sprinkled with fresh basil.

The Seafood Cioppino Pasta, was a perfect American Italian
fusion dish. A San Francisco style fish stew and Italian spaghetti
rolled into one. They generously added varied seafood like mussels,
shrimps, clams, calamari and  spiced with chili flakes and aromatics.

An Italian classic, the Spaghetti Pomodoro was a delicious
light pasta dish. The wispy tomato based light sauce tasted
fresh and emitted a delightful aftertaste of  garlic and basil

The Grilled Pork Chop Au Poivre was very delicious.
Grilled to a tender an juicy perfection the pepper-crusted
pork chops was served with rosemary potatoes, carrots,
crispy-fried spinach and wild mushroom as side dishes.
It was bathed with tasty and aromatic marsala wine sauce.

It was a wonderful Italian dinner and an awesome
prelude to our sojourn in sophisticated city of Milan,


… and elegant and regal Venice.
