Joining the gelato bandwagon is this new kid on the block, Casa Italia. Located in Forbes Town, BGC, just beside Coco Ichibanya and just across Robinson's Selections Supermarket, we went here to get some dessert love after our satisfying dinner at Wrong Ramen.
The place was big with high ceiling and a spacious second floor to boot! It was well thought of with lots of decorations.
They had a wide assortment of gelato flavors and it was so hard to choose. Good thing the staff that assisted us was generous enough to let us try all the flavors we wanted and even recommended some.

|Green Tea, Mango Yogurt and Apple Pie would have to be my favorites from this batch!|
|Vanilla, Crunchy Mocha and Yogurt tops my list from this selection!|
Personally, I liked the Apple Pie Gelato as well as the Green Tea (but of course - #greentealove). Since I'm a big fan of yogurt, I also liked their Mango Yogurt. We also tried Nutella, Dark Truffle, Strawberry, Strawberry Shortcake, Mango Sorbet, Toblerone, Passion Fruit, Pistachio, Raspberry, Crunchy Mocha, Avocado, Bailey's, After Eight, Plain Yogurt, and Blueberry Yogurt. The server was very patient with us since I was with my daughter and she really had a hard time choosing.
|Two scoops for 195Php|
|Affogatto - Solo for 175Php|
|Nutella and Strawberry Cheesecake, please!|
|Definitely went for Bailey's and After Eight for this batch!|
The way they showcased their gelato was just like how the majority of the gelato stores do it - huge slab of gelato glamoured with fruits or chocolates etc to give visual appeal and explanation of what flavor to expect.

|More sinful goodies!|
|Some sandwiches, if you don't fancy cakes and pastries|
|Butter Croissant for 65Php|
|Beef Lasagna for 250Php|
|Medio (2 Scoops) for 195Php|
I'm petty sure my daughter would ask me to go here again coz she seemed to love the whole game of tasting the gelato flavors first before ordering.
Also, this place is a great chill out place and since they have ultra fast wifi connection, I'm able to do some online work here with no problem at all. They also have charging ports in almost all tables.
4 out of 5 Stars for Casa Italia's Gelato but only 3 out of 5 Stars for the food!
