“just a typical italian place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

This restaurant is located at the side of White Beach. you will pass by this place if you want to go to Talipanan beach.. They serve the typical Italian dishes such as pizza, coffee, and pasta. The place is also customized so you can really feel the Italian ambiance.

“Could Be Better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

This place has probably the best location on White Beach because it's perched on top of a cliff and has a full view of White Beach. It's a little pricey so it's not usually crowded and has a cozy feeling. Food is alright but could use some improvement. Our caprese salad was supposed to come with mozzarella but came with some cheap processed cheap. It also had only 3 small basil leaves in the whole plate which I found odd as it's a main ingredient. Pasta and chicken dishes tasted well but we found the bread stale. And it's quite odd to go to an Italian restaurant and find they have run out of balsamic vinegar! I hear the pizzas are very good though, so stick to that.....

“Worst Pizza In My Entire Life”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2014

you would think since the owner is italian that you would get some good pizza.. i have never actually had bad pizza before but i guess that streak was due to be broken. who ever heard of pizza where peperoni is not an option? they just dont have it. i actually threw up shortly after leaving the place.

“best in Puerto Galera”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013

Very nice view from the restaurant!
Puerto Galera is not a luxury spot and it is very hard to find a decent place to eat.
Ciao Italia is the best one.
Girls working there are very nice and attentive.
Pizza is good. Tiramisu and Banana Tropicana were delicious. The coffee machine was not working (broken and can be fixed only in Manila), but still the coffee with milk was definitely not less than I've expected! The chicken soup seemed to be with Gallina Blanca ((( Maybe we should try other kind of soup.
I've been here twice and will come again.
