Description: Welcome to Aria Restaurant, where traditional food meets a modern, stylish ambiance. Take a culinary journey through italy with a mouth-watering array of authentic dishes inspired by the beautiful mediterranean coast. Opened in 2003 on the sandy shores of Boracay, the Philippines' top beach destination, Aria quickly gained recognition amongst tourist and locals alike and became known for its delectable pastas, wood-fire oven baked pizzas, fresh salads, delicious main courses, seasonal recipes and its cozy setting. Offering everything from seafood to poultry as well as vegetable to meats, there is surely something in Aria's menu for everyone. Buon Appetito!

I always make it a point to dine at this restaurant every time I visit Boracay. I think it serves the best Italian foods on the island, and it cannot be other otherwise. Its head chef ... Luigi (with whom I had a chance to chat) ... is a bona fide Italian. He was from the Trastevere quarter in Rome, Italy. At any rate, we tried some of their dishes, specifically their ravioli with ricotta and spinach, tagliatelle alla marinara, pizza Napoli, etc, and of course some frizzy San Benedetto water. As expected, I had a great dinner!

The experience would have been great if there was air-conditioning in the place. Yes, it's an open air restaurant. Fresh breeze from the beach would have provided it with good ventilation, but it was the season of the south-west monsoon ("habagat") and they surrounded the whole place with plastic sheets to lessen the impact of the wind. Consequently, it was pretty warm and humid in the restaurant, somewhat ruining the dining experience. Anyway, I still love their foods. They taste so authentically Italian! :D

This place has been here for a long time and it's still good! Can't help but feel nostalgic here, it's a good thing it's still open even in this pandemic situation we are in. This place is a standard must visit place here in the island whenever I visit!

Many Boracay restaurants faces challenges in these pandemic times. At Aria everything is just right and good. You do not have the feeling there are restrictions in place even though they do follow health protocol. Ate here twice during our vacation. Delicious dishes, traditional Italian cuisine just what you like when at the beach. It is for me part of the holiday experience. Reasonably priced.

Perfect for dinner if you're looking for Italian cuisine on the island. We had the best steak and seafood marinara. The gelato was good, too. It's situated at one of the entrances to D'mall so expect that people would pass by non-stop, plus the ones offering water activities and tours.

We have been eating from this place on weekly basis. Great crust, flavourful and yummy. The restaurant is located on the beachfront and near the famous D-mall shopping area.
