What to say. Rolando, the owner, manager and chef has been away for more than two years. So, some of the little things have slipped a bit. That said, UrChoice is still far and away the best restaurant in Dipolog. Please note, it's far, far...more than just a pizza restaurant - but it's pizzas are the best anywhere. It's a great Italian restaurant. As well, the decor is excellent: Bistro casual. Things could be better, however. The menu needs to be updated - badly: new dishes, not so many "out of stock", many more repriced. Llooks sloppy. The parking situation has deteriorated - again badly. The staff of the new PLDT office next door takes up UrChoice's parking places. UrChoice's It's staff is still at covid-19 levels and hours (11am to 6pm) are still limited. A shame. BUT, and it's a very big BUT, the food is GREAT, particularly compared to . . . . . any others.More

I checked tripadvisor for recommended restaurants in Dipolog and UrChoice is on top. Found out that it was near my hotel so I decided to check it. At 5:30 in the afternoon I was alone in the restaurant. I ordered for brick oven cooked Pepperoni...Pizza and to go with it I ordered fresh Calamansi Juice. The served the juice and when I tasted it, I found it too sweet and too sour which was a good surprise. I requested for a glass of water and extra ice and I got myself two glasses of Calamansi Juice. When my pizza arrived I realized it was big. The crust was soft and crispy and all the ingredients tasted fresh. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. I devoured around 6 slices of the big pizza. It somehow equalled the satisfaction I get from California Pizza Kitchen. Aside from the food, it was fun to watch them toss the dough, spread the sauce and put the toppings. Then I watched the cook place it inside the brick oven. I also like the ambience of the place. Warm lighting and cozy decor and soft music. I highly recommend this place.More

Because am eating solo and is craving for pizza, I ordered hawaian small size for 170ph. Sulit! The crust is good and the fillings are overloaded. Wanted to try their pasta soon.

Very casual ambience with good value menu items. Ossobuco was okay, Bacalao was good, Pasta with sardines was surprisingly good, but I didn't like the margarine used on the agile olio. Pizza is worth coming back for ad great service from the staff! is a...big plus.More

Thank you for your kind review. Allow me to disagree in one point. We do not use margarine. I will look personally into this matter because margarine should not be in the list of our ingredients. Thank you again.

A great place to be somewhat expensive and a little bit small but many types of food to choose from I highly recommend it I also believe that it is foreign owned

I must have eaten a thousand pizzas as a child. This addiction has serious long-term implications on both my health and, far more important, my notion of what constituted pizza. The first time I tasted Ur Choice Pizza, I was in high school. You wouldn’t...want to know how many slices of pizza I ate that night. Since then, every time my parents would ask me where I want to eat, my answer would always be “Ur Choice” (MY CHOICE). I’m not really a fan of pasta but you won’t be able to resist their pasta, too. When I went away for college, my pizza expedition continued but I would always compare it with the pizza at Ur Choice. (Sad life) However, they will soon open a branch here in Cebu! Now I don’t have to wait! I CANNOT WAIT! A MUST TRY!!!More
