Italianni's Now Open at Edsa Shangrila Plaza!

IMG_1135

Italianni's is one of my family's favorite restaurants in Manila; it's our usual go to place when we don't know or when we're undecided where to eat. So when I got an invite to try Italianni's new dishes, I was really ecstatic! Unfortunately since the blogger's event started early and I came from school, I wasn't able to try and take photos of some of their dishes. It's my first time doing a food review here on my blog but I'll try my best to give a good one :) hope you enjoy!

Primavera
Mixed lettuce, lolla rosa, tomatoes tossed in raspberry, vinaigrette topped with ricotta fritters
Price: Php 495.00

I haven't tried any vinaigrette salad in Italianni's yet since we always go for Caesar and Four Seasons salad but this is also good. It's really tasty plus I love that it comes with ricotta fritters which made it better for me!

Layered Ricotta Dip
Layered dip of parmesan and ricotta cheese with sundried tomato and pesto. Served with garlic tuscan bread
Price: Php 545.00

I don't normally order dips in a restaurant but this one is going to be an exception! It's quite pricey for a dip but I think that it's really worth every penny since the serving is big for an appetizer. I had a take out of this and it's still as good when I ate it at home.

Seafood Cioppino
Mussels, shrimps, clams, calamari and spaghetti in cioppino, enhanced with chili flakes
Price: Php 395 (regular)
          Php 595 (to share)
          Php 895 (abbondanza)

This is not a new dish but I'm glad they served this because it's one of my favorites! Price is also reasonable since it comes in a really huge serving. I'm a big fan of seafood and I guess that's what I love about this dish :)

Salmon with Safron
Spaghetti pasta sauteed with muscles, salmon and tossed in safron cream cause
Price: Php 550.00

I'm not a fan of Safron so I didn't really get to enjoy this but it's not that bad. I'm a fan of salmon though and the small pieces of salmon were good and tasted really fresh!

Fettucine Beef Ragu
Fettucine pasta tossed in our authentic Italian beef ragu
Price: Php 495

Sad to say but I got really disappointed with this. The sauce lacked taste but the beef was tender. I told the manager about my feedback so I hope they can still improve on this :)

Pizza Enorme (Perfect for 4-6 persons)
16-inch family pizza with four quarters. Each quarter carries their own distinct flavors; pepperoni, ham and pineapples, shrimps & mushrooms and four cheeses
Price: Php 795.00

This one isn't new also. I'm a big fan of pizzas and the fact that this comes in different flavors is already heaven for me.

New York Cheesecake
Classic New York style cheesecake served on a bed of strawberry amaretto sauce
Price: Php 450.00

This has got to be one of the best cheesecakes I've ever tasted in Manila. My family always orders this and it doesn't last us 5 minutes! :p

Panna Cotta
We serve this Italian vanilla custard fresh daily
Served with your choice of sauce: from mango, blueberry or honey with walnuts
Price: Php 295.00

Also not a fan of Panna Cotta but this was sooooooo delicious! Everything was just right here - the tecture of the vanilla custard wasn't too soft and the taste isn't too sweet nor too bland. Can't wait to go back and eat this again!

 Prosciutto e Formaggio
Four of the best the best that Italy has to offer in a plate: Milano Salami, Parma ham, Gongonzola and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
Price: Php 595.00

I wasn't able to taste this since I was already so full but my mom said it's good :)

Their new branch is Shangrila Plaza also has a different interior design. The manager told us that they're changing all or some (I don't really remember, hehe) of their interior to a modern design! Isn't it better than the older ones?
