“So cozy”
Reviewed September 23, 2016 via mobile

They have a simple menu. I love the way the food is prepared because it is home made. The pizza and pasta are perfect. The place is small but cozy with a garden/ kubo, it gives you a homey feeling. Surely be coming back to this place when there 's a chance.

“Best pizza”
Reviewed July 6, 2015 via mobile

My family is addicted to their pizza carbonara. It's better than any fast food chain pizza. I always buy it for pasalubong when I go out of town and visit relatives

See and Eat at C&E Pizza Pasta in Laoag City


Conservative and thrifty. Hardworking and sturdy. These are qualities that define Ilocanos, the north-west inhabitants of  provinces in Luzon, the Philippines. In Laoag City, capital of Ilocos Norte, there is one quaint restaurant founded by Estelita Caluya, and now managed by her youngest daughter, Candy-- who as  she was growing up never showed her acumen in the kitchen nor the daring-do of an entrepreneur- that has been around for close to three decades: C&E Pasta Pizza Pastry.

C&E Pasta Pizza Pastry has been serving pizza, pasta and pastry, these Western food  but localized as comfort food raved and craved for by Ilocanos.  From its first home-based outlet, it has been patronized by its local and now increasing customers, including out-of-towners, in its five branches located in the city and in  nearby  Batac.

Its best seller ---its version of carbonara but on a pizza crust --together with Filipino favorite fried chicken, has emerged as hands-down comfort food across age-group. It has its own Bagnet-topped pizza, too!

Recently, to answer requests for more home food offering, C&E offered Lugaw (congee) with various toppings from simple hard-boiled egg to the  bagnet (deep-fried pork belly), in servings huge but with eater-friendly prices. 

From the famous  and mighty of the city, to the average Joes,  they buy and repeat-buy  various pizzas, pastas, with pancit palaabok, with all the trimmings, squid, crunchy bagnet flakes. tinapa (dried fish flakes), and more. They swear by its consistency. Plus, with serving portions to satisfy the craving of one or of a barkada (group of friends) or even family, with pocket-friendly prices, there is no reason why it's not going to be  a winner!

It also offers a line of pastries, from  decadent food-for-the-God's, pastry tarts, cupcakes, cookies and brownies, that are  baked as if these were asked of mom. Delicious!

With Candy's sister, Amie, handling C&E's pastry and cakes, it also offers specialty cupcakes and cakes. A baking whiz, she uses buttercream as icing with the deft and artistry of a national (cake) artist. Being innovative, she has many more variants that will give their clients new dessert choices, from salted caramel to rich, cheese-cake, to original recipes like creamy cheese cake, and cheese pie!

Certainly, for those touring Laoag City, to enjoy its sights, visit and  go to C&E Pasta Pizza Pastry, one branch behind the Capitol building along Luna Street, is a good venue,  and savor what to the Ilocanos have been a prized and well-patronized restaurant, able to hold its own despite many trying to compete with it.

See and eat, at C&E Pizza Pasta Pastry and any one's visit to Ilocos Norte is made more delectably, a memorable experience.

One burps, before saying, Bravo!
