I ate at Amoremio every day during my recent 4-days stay in Angeles City.

The restaurant has a very relaxed ambient, with an air-conditioned dining room at the front, an al fresco dining area in the inner courtyard and another dining room at the back, big enough to host small functions/parties. I usually ate outside as the weather was very pleasant, warm but breezy. On a couple of occasions, all the tables in the al fresco areas were taken, so I decided to eat inside.

To add to the restaurant's casual and relaxed atmosphere, the owner, manager and chef of the restaurant were often around and more than willing to answer questions or to chat it up. I am very picky with food and when I made a couple of special requests, the staff had absolutely no problem in accommodating them. Everybody was very friendly and welcoming, which is one of the reasons why I kept going back.

I found most of the food I tried excellent. I had a chance to eat Amoremio's pizza, pasta, gnocchi and Italian cold cuts, which are actually imported from Italy. I was also lucky to be there when the chef prepared a special item, gnocco fritto with Parma ham, which is not on the regular menu - I was told that it was being considered for addition, however, and I definitely plan to ask for it next time I go back. There is a small selection of desserts, all of which are homemade and equally good - my personal favorite was chocolate cake with chocolate sauce, but they also server panna cotta and tiramisu.

On one occasion, I went to Amoremio with a Filipino friend who was happy to find a selection of Filipino dishes. Being Italian, I obviously went for the Italian dishes, but it was nice to see local dishes for those who might want something different from Italian food.

I must agree with the previous reviewers that the prices were very reasonable. In fact, I found the prices of Amoremio substantially lower than those charged by other Italian restaurants I have previously visited in the Philippines.

I ate at this restaurant three times on my last stay.
Although not the best Italian restaurant that I have been to, but possibly the best value.
All the dishes that I sampled were very good and priced right.
The service was excellent. Not the greatest ambiance, but it is pleasant enough.
I will certainly dine here again on my next visit.
