The place has a romantic and intimate feel to it. It reminds me of the Italian restaurants I used to dine at when I lived in California. It only gets better now that I know they serve freshly baked bread as an appetizer as I know that only true Italian restaurants serve their own bread. Their dishes are amazing and... More

This restaurant is new with an Italian guy in the kitchen, it's a small place and the menu is limited only for pasta and one meat dish. If you are looking for an authentic italian I much say it's a let down. The price doesn't match with the food they serve. Well we just went there to try the place,... More

Hello. Thank you for the review appreciated. I would like to say that the menu has also fish dishes and in the board behind the counter are indicated also the dishes out of the menu. As we always indicate and introduce to our customers. I agree with the prices but since we are in Laoag is not simple and cheap... More

Great little Italian gem in Laoag with simple, authentic, fresh and tasty food. Food selection is limited but everything is good (we dined twice). The fresh dorada and the home made semi freddo were the highlights. Service is great too. One can only wish for a more extensive food and wine selection (no pizza yet).

What I like most after eating is you feel satisfied but still light in your stomach. What I mean is when you eat fresh, clean in a sense of good oil is used and many other things, flavorful that your taste buds are hopping in joy...that's what you can get in a authentic italian restaurant,and Don Saro's slake my criteria.

This winter was my first time in Philippines and I have been in Laoag City for a couple of days. Asking the locals I found Don Saro's, the first and only one italian restaurant in town. The place is small but very nice and confortable, one of the most beautiful that I've seen in Philippines. The chef is a sicilian... More

I have been here some days ago. The restaurant is typical italian style, very nice, a very confortable atmosphere. The owners are very kind and willing to satisfy every your request. Here you can taste real italian food, as fresh cold cuts (coming directly from italy, like PROSCIUTTO, SPECK, PANCETTA, they are the REAL ITALIAN ONES!) and SPAGHETTI. They cook... More
