looloo Food Tour: Italianni's - 3rd Stop

Written By clapalisoc on Monday 20 July 2015 | 12:44

Just when I though that I've had enough food for the night, we moved on to our third stop for the epic looloo Food Tour. Village Tavern - TGI Friday's - Italianni's. This restaurant has been a favorite here in our country when it comes to Italian cuisine. They have been offering delectable Italian food for years now. They have an extensive menu and during the food tour, we were served with a lot of dishes, including desserts! Whiw!

Peperoncino & Chorizo Pasta with Quattro Formaggio

Three kinds of Pasta Dishes were served - Peperoncino and Chorizo, Bolognese and Aglio Olio. I wasn't able to try the Peperoncino and Chorizo but my friends said that it was good. Oil based pasta using Olive Oil, tossed with bacon chorizo and olives. 

Spaghetti Bolognese

The Bolognese was just okay and did not appeal much to me. This could be because I am not a fan of sour tomato based sauce. But one thing was notable, the flavor of fresh tomatoes was there. 

Spaghetti Aglio Olio

I liked the Aglio Olio more. It was simple but had strong garlic flavor coupled with just the right level of spiciness. 

We also had two kinds of pizzas - Quattro Formaggio and Margherita. 

Quattro Formaggio

Their Quattro Formaggio is definitely one of the best in the market! This is a must when in Italianni's. One bite and I knew that it has either blue cheese or goat cheese. Gorgonzola, goat cheese, mozzarella and taleggio - gosh this was so good. There is something addicting about goat cheese and I just cant get enough of it. 


The Margherita, on the other hand, was just okay. It was sour, with fresh tomatoes, and it wasn't something that appealed to me.

Then they introduced their Shareable Combos to us. For 945Php each, use of Bistro Card not applicable, you'll be able to choose from these two combos --

Ribs and Fish which has Baby Back Ribs in honey mustard bbq sauce, Parmesan Crusted Fish Fillet and Pesto Rice.

Pesto Rice

From this combo, only the pesto rice reached our part of the table. It was just okay. Could have been better if there was a stronger pesto flavor to it.

Pork and Chicken Combo which has Pork Chops, Chicken Parmigiana and Spaghetti Aglio Olio, as described above. The pork chops had nice grill marks and were tasty but a the meat wasn't as tender. Didn't get to try their Chicken Parmigiana too.

Spaghetti Aglio Olio

Personally, I would say that the combos provide value for money. Two types of meat dish and pasta or rice is not bad at all. Each combo is ideal for 2 or a group of 3.

Creme Brulee

Then there was dessert. Lovely! They had us try their Panna Cotta and Creme Brulee. Oh I loved all of them! The Creme Brulee was rich and creamy and the crackly caramelized sugar topping gave texture and sweetness to it. Not only that, it was topped with whipped cream, fresh ripe mango cubes and walnuts! Such a delight with every spoonful and I must say, I can finish one order all by myself. 

Panna Cotta - Honey and Mango

The Panna Cotta was great too. They had us try the honey and mango flavors though the server said that they will also have us try the blueberry one but it never happened. Anyhow, I am a fan of Panna Cotta and even made some before as the dessert for my daughter's birthday party. It's a simple, cream based dessert that is so versatile that it'll go well with almost any topping that you can think of! Italianni's version was thick and creamy and not too sweet which was the way it was supposed to be. Served in small jars, honey or mango puree lined the bottom. Then more of the honey and mango were served in a separate container just in case you want to indulge a little more with sweetness.

Servers were knowledgeable of the dishes, always ready to answer our questions, move the dishes elsewhere for better lighting and very patient in attending to our requests. 

4 out of 5 Stars for Italianni's!
