I like Italianni’s. My all-time favorite is their pasta pomodoro in spaghettini and the complimentary ciabatta bread with balsamic vinegar dip. Prices are a bit on the high side but the servings are ample.This is one resto chain I don’t go to everyday, but the few times I’ve been here, I haven’t been disappointed.
Once, I had just come from the graveyard shift and splurged on their Grand Platter at something like 500 pesos +++. It was the most I can do to assuage my sleeplessness and hungriness (errrr, hunger!) but it was worth it. Nothing like steak, sausage, fruits and a little bit of everything for brunch. The fresh OJ, most especially.
Am glad that this time around, Italianni’s is offering their “Small Price for a Big Lunch” promotion. Tried it last week and I absolutely liked the falling-off-to-the-bone goodness of their Costina Brasatta (Braised Ribs) which was paired with spaghetti aglio e olio and grilled vegetables.
The “Small Price for a Big Lunch” line-up cost from P295 for the fish & chicken dishes and P350 for the pork/beef platters.In these days of recession, P350 for lunch isn’t really small price but I must say it’s a modest expense for a chain like Italianni’s where average bill is at P500 per person 😀
We want to try next the Manzo di Arrosto (Roasted Rib Eye). The price for this one is really good (and small) since it’s an honest-to-goodness imported steak for only P350. Too bad, this one’s only available in Italianni’s Trinoma, High Street, and Greenbelt.
On the night we were at Italianni’s somebody was having her birthday and we had all kinds of calorific desserts:
We shall be back again 😛 Viva Italianni’s!
