Casa Marikit was highly recommended and ir did not disappoint. It was a pleasant suprise to find a very nice Italian restaurant in Lipa, Batangas. I would have never known. The food was delicious. Everyone was very nice, friendly, and accommodating. We ordered pasta, risotto...and pizza - all delish. For starters, we had the prosciutto and mango and ended our meal with cappuccino and tiramisu. All delish. I highly recommend Casa Marikit.More

I am used to good quality Italian restaurants. Casa Marikit had it all - food quality, ambiance, service, reasonable prices. Caution on the serving size which is generous to say the least. The parking can be confusing as it is no clearly marked.

Never though that they have it there. Thanks to a friend who recommended the place. We didn’t regret going to the place. Sumptuous meal, very delicious. Would love to go back when we visit Batangas again.

Food Quality (taste, presentation): 5+ Stars Staff Service (order taking, serving, clearing): 3- Stars Too bad such great Italian eating is not matched with trained and knowledgeable staff (but friendly of course like most Filipinos). I went for a special set menu for Valentine's Day...with only choices for salad and pasta ... but neither the menu nor the staff could explain until after that both guests had to make the same selection for these 2 course (to share a double serving). This is so not standard that it was hard to make sense of what they were trying to say or explain. It would have been a big help if was clearly stated somewhere on the menu. Anyway, after that confusion and frustration was settled ... the staff served all FIVE courses (except desert) out of sequence. The set menu starts with antipasto, then salad, soup, main and pasta. Instead, first was soup, followed by salad (but only 1 minute between servings) followed by antipasto (2 minutes later) ... so all this food at the same time on our table (thank goodness a double size table). This made little sense and certainly not haute cuisine service in spite of the great food and high price. After those 3 courses were finally done, pasta was served (out of sequence) and half-way through that, the main was served (beef and prawn ... but excellent!). Additionally, we were not asked how we like the meat cooked (although we ended up being happy with it rare as served). Perhaps most surprising was a) no napkins (cloth would have been expected at such a fancy venue), b) paper version provided when asked for SOMETHING was half-size thin serviettes ... totally useless. How can this restaurant be so cheap with cloth or paper napkins? Finally, no coffee/tea service was offered at the end. We will likely visit again because of the fabulous food but staff needs a complete training course on how to serve an Italian meal and provide quality service to guests.More

What a great find. Who would have thought that you would find a top class Italian restaurant in Lipa. I have now been there 3 times. They have an extensive menu, which is difficult to provide, nevertheless, every dish I have tried to date was...magnificent. This class of restraint would match any of the top Italian restaurants in any major city. The prices are also very reasonable for the quality of produce and cooking. I asked to meet the chef. He was a Filipino and had spent 17 years cooking in Milan, no surprises there. If you like Italian food or just top quality food, you MUST go there!More

As we were searching for an authentic lunch in Lipa, we stumbled this hidden away Italian place. We entered into a European patio and cozy place. We were welcomed by a friendly place and catered to all our needs. Bruschetta was one of our appetizers...and it was tasteful. We ordered seafood linguine and served with generous clams, shrimps and squid. It is definitely a place to return to.More

Wow! Who would have thought you'd find a mean italian restaurant in Lipa? Heading back to Manila from our outing, i suggested to my friends to have lunch somewhere in Lipa. My friend's hubby wanted something local, so i found 2 local Lipa stores. However,...one of my godchild had other plans. She wanted to have pizza! So change of food plans. Then, we came across this top Lipa resto that happened to be an italian place. We navigated thru the streets of Lipa and almost got lost. As per waze, we were supposed to have arrived already but a jap resto named Nori was there. 🤔 head scratch. We passed it and head back; we asked the guard if its Casa Marikit. And he said, yes! Since it was past 1pm, most patrons have gone home. When we came in, it was very posh for a resto not in Manila, which, as per the waiter, is still on soft opening. Reason it doesnt have signboard yet. Only one section is operational and the bigger section is yet to be completed. We tried checking it out and were excited for the big barrel design and bar inside. The menu was so big, i had to put it far from my face. We ordered 2 pizzas and 3 pastas, as seen on my pictures. When the food arrived and we had our fill..all i can say is..bellisimo!! (As my italian colleague would say, with smacking fingertips hand gesture) The place was indeed a gem in Lipa, lucky u 😏More

Beautiful place, average food but pricey. At the end of our meal I ordered for brewed coffee and cafe Americano was served without informing us if its ok. I appreciate if we were charged the price of brewed coffee instead of cafe americano. A simple...gesture but they’re not flexible even in complimentary bread. We paid 1,800pesos total for carbonara, sausage, bread and a cup of coffee. Restroom is nice and clean.More

The food is great, although a little bit pricey. The place is classy and intimate. I think the staffs need more trainings in serving the food and be more alert in dealing with the customers. Keep it up!

Recently reopened after a long refurbishment was so looking forward to our visit. Sadly we were disappointed mainly due to service and in our case average but quite expensive food. My first choice for starter Parma Ham and Melon was not available but was only...advised of this after 15 mins. I reordered choosing Onion Soup. My Wife's starter arrived a very indifferent Bruchetta and I waited patiently for my Soup. They then delivered my Wife's main course whilst she was still finishing her starter and whilst I still awaited my Soup. After complaining they took the main course away and eventually delivered my soup approximately one hour after ordering it. Like the main courses that followed(Pasta) the soup was only warm. The highlight of the evening was when the waiter asked if we wanted the 1770 peso bottle of Prosecco served at room temperature or chilled.When I asked for it to be served in a wine bucket with ice I was advised "Sorry we do not have any" . The waiter seemed unaware that white sparkling wines would seldom if ever be served at room temperature. This is quite an expensive restaurant and hopefully by the next time we visit the staff will have more experience and the service levels will have improved. They have a long way to go though before they reach the levels of excellence they enjoyed in the past. To be fair we were offered a complimentary Gelato but still had to pay a mandatory service charge of 10% added to our bill. Was a sad evening as it was our wedding anniversary.More

Prices were a bit on the upscale but the food more than makes up for it. I particularly enjoyed the Osso Buco and Lasagne Bolognese. The place could use a lot of improvements though as the ambiance was a little depressing when we got there

This is approximately five kilometers from the city of Lipa just beside the perimeter wall of Fernando Air Base, Lipa City after passing through several traffic jams leading towards this Italian -inspired restaurant. This restaurant has fusion of the modern and shabby chic ambiance. The...lighting is just perfect for me, not too glitzy and glaring. A bit pricey indeed but got to try it once in a while. Got no complains with the service. We got free panna cotta. Just a limited parking space but diners come and go. Try to take a sneak peak of the owners antique collections beside the restaurant with permission.More

This Italian inspired restaurant is probably the only fine dining option in lipa city. They offer the best steaks and pasta in this side of the southern tagalog region. Ambiance and service is great. The only hiccup is the number of parking slots available. Definitely...recommended though when you're in the land of Liberica coffeeMore
