“Very excellent birthday dinner.”
Reviewed April 17, 2016 via mobile

A quiet family birthday meal turned into a very nice birthday bash.

Looking at the review scores, which are very high, and reading the owners replies he has 5 stars and is still trying to improve!

If you keep doing what you are doing you are here to stay.

I have decided to go more regularly from now on.

Please tell every one about this place. They need our support or we will lose him.

Our mindset is, keep it updated and the people will come back!

“A savory surprise!”
Reviewed April 5, 2016

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 they taste wonderful. I have been looking for a really good authentic spaghetti and now I have to search no further since it's served right in my home town. I can't wait to try their new dishes. Danilo and Sheryl are absolutely wonderful. Their service is quick and the vegetables they use are so fresh. I don't miss italian food from home so much now that we have it right here in our backyard -- so divine!

“New restaurant”
Reviewed April 5, 2016 via mobile

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, but to go back if we are in town, well then I think I cook better pasta.

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 to deliver the food as also many things have to be made from scratch because lack of products in this town. We would be more than welcome to introduce yourself and we will give you a free taste of all the pasta (good for one person) for you to decide again if you cook better pasta than Italians. Our restaurant is warmly waiting for you! Have a nice night, bye bye..

“Unexpected Italian in Ilocos”
Reviewed April 1, 2016 via mobile

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).
