I have my list of restaurants to try before the end of 2012 and one of them is Va Bene Pasta Deli. Their location in Petron Gas Station EDSA beside the Dasmarinas Village Gate in Makati looks like a good place to hang out since they are beside notable bakers Cuerva Bakeshop, San Lo’s Famous and Karen’s Kitchen.Too many outstanding choices in one roof, too little time!
Va Bene it is, even though we already ate brunch in Aida’s Manokan. I wanted to see what makes the place so raved by foodies. True enough, the small place was packed and we had to wait for our turn. Upon seating, we were given a free serving of their crostini with tomato salsa. It was a signal of good things to come.
It was our toddler’s first time to munch on crostini (or toasted bread slices) and I made sure to record her expressions for posterity. Awww!
