At 3pm, there were people dining, so the food must be good. We ordered gambas pasta (tomato base), it was ok. We asked for parmesan cheese and they charged us 50.0 for it. Then we also had three cheese pizza, that was a better experience.

If you're ever in Baguio you should definitely check this place out, this is a must.

It was around the christmas and new year so the restaurant was full non stop in working time. I tried almost full of the menu dishes especially all their pasta dishes and all I can say is that it's very authentic and is always freshly made. Ragu Bolognese and Ala Carbonara are my favourite. I was happy everytime i tried their mouthwatering pizzas too.. Best pizza in Baguio! The service was great in my opinion. Staff are always warm and friendly everytime I eat here..

Had the carbonara pasta but the dish tasted like rancid dairy (panis na gatas). Eggs, wine, shallots, garlic and fresh Parmesan - so why did the dish taste like bad milk? Had the dish sent back to the kitchen, apparently they did "quality control" (as the server said) and confirmed their carbonara taste like bad milk. Oh and yeah, we did pay for the pasta. They don't allow cancelations for bad tasting food, or rancid tasting carbonara dish to be exact! Will never eat here again.

Food is overhyped.

We always eat in Amare everytime were in Baguio, and my alltime favorite would be the prosciutto pizza coz of the generous serving of- you guessed it- prosciutto!!
Found out they started offering baguio craft beer as well and i tried their strawberry light beer. Found out this was a good pair for my pizza!!
Yay for Amare!

This restaurant was ordinaly restaurant. but staffs were GOOD. We ate Ala Gamberi ,Pesto , Con Funghi and other spaghetti. We were expecting Al Dente for spaghetti but It was bit soft. and pizza was bit weak taste. we compare to Italian restaurant in Japan so It was little lower quality than that. The price is overpriced too.

Brick Oven Pizza is in the house! 128076
Located in the Ignacio Villamor St. Inside the hotel.

We ordered the Pepperoni Pizza (395php). Amare's Pizza is 12inch, that's the only size of their pizza. We also try their Ala Sardines Pasta (265) good for 2 person. Great experience, it's our first time to try the Brick Oven Pizza. Delicious food, happy tummy. 10084

This restaurant near Baguio's Wright Park and The Mansion capped my last Baguio visit. I'm so glad it did because their food is that Ahh-mazing!

I loved their pasta especially their arrabbiata but what I loved most is their woodfire brick oven pizza! The dough is what got me. Partner that one-of-a-kind dough with different toppings then cook it in a brick oven. Then, say hello to your unforgettable pizza experience!

It's that good that whenever I learn my friends are visiting Baguio, I recommend an Amare La Cucina visit. If you plan visiting, lessen the hassle by looking for Albergo Hotel. The pizza haven is located inside. I am hoping they can open a Manila branch soon. 128522

Setting aside good and bad reviews about this resto, we decided to find out for ourselves, and lo and behold, we loved it! 128522

We ordered the following:

Foie Gras Pizza (8 slices) 127829
Wood Fired Ribs with Veggies 127830
Mint Iced Tea 127865

The pizza was fantastic! If it's your first time, I recommend you get this one 128521 Not too thin and not too thick! Very flavorful! The ribs were also great, juicy and tasty! It comes with a tasty dip which is not your usual BBQ sauce or ribs sauce, and some buttered veggies. The mint iced tea was refreshing! To top all that, the price is just right! 128077

Will definitely go back here when we visit Baguio again 128522

Sarap pasta - very tasty sauce and shrimp cooked just right plus the White Pizza fresh toppings and crust cooked just right again.
Had a fun time touring the "mall" too. A bit put of the way though so...

Beautifully baked by wood fire pizza crust top with fantastic flavors such as Foie Gras and truffle oil. That was what we had that won me over. The BBQ ribs is likewise a must try. Baked in the same woof-fire oven, the tender ribs delivered a remarkable hickory flavor. The secret is most likely in the sauce but I think the wood had a lot to do with the flavor. And the crust! Whatever the case may be, this hidden (inside a mall) eating joint is a must go to when in Baguio.

So after a stroll along the mansion, who wouldn't be hungry and put yourself in a situation where in you like wanna eat everything around you. Jk. So, to start off, hearing stories about a great brick oven pizza along the streets of baguio. They've said that this pizza was the best brick oven pizza in town. So looking for Amare, if you don't have internet and it's gonna be your first time to eat there. You don't have to look for any signage. It's almost across the wright park, inside the building! EGI Albergo Hotel, Villamor Drive.

And there, lucky for you if you get seated right away. But with my experience, you gotta wait in line. And look all those faces enjoying the pizza while you're hungry and envy they could eat already. So if you don't like to wait. You snack up and tour during lunch at the mansion, and go to amare during 1-2pm. Less crowded. So what can you order?

I ordered:

Fruti De Mare (Pasta)
So it's good as the other pasta you could taste in manila. It contains mixed seafoods, plum tomatoes, garlic, olive oil and a bit of white wine. Tasty because of their fresh tomatoes.

Tre Formaggi (Pizza)
Always a fan of cheese! Three cheese are parmesan, mozzarella and cheddar.

Margherita (Pizza)
What makes it so special it's the basil leaves and mozzarella.

So overall, what makes a pizza good one is the contrast of the flavors! And another criteria is the dough. Since it's a brick oven pizza, you'll be expecting a good dough. Haha. The pizzas are the best in town.

We were so excited to try this place based on the positive reviews but sadly, I would have to completely disagree.

Maybe it was just a bad day (?), but the Sausage, Pepperoni, Mushroom pizza we ordered was not good at all. The toppings were just okay, but the crust, or rather, the dough was horrible. It was not baked thoroughly. So much so that the toppings were already drooping. And trust me, raw pizza dough is not at all appetizing. I could see the others' pizzas and it seems that it was not baked thoroughly as well. Thank goodness we did not order the more expensive Foie Gras pizza. It would've just gone to waste.

As for the Al Arrabiata pasta, it was just okay, nothing too special about it. But I can't believe they charge 30 (or 50? I don't remember) bucks for Parmesan.128528

The price does not justify the taste. The servers were friendly and nice, though.

Not coming back here again, there are a lot more restaurants in Baguio that are worth going to.

Wouldn't have known about this place had it not been for Chichi T. Together with chi, Charm V and Alexander A we decided to stuff ourselves silly with brick oven pizza.

Amare is a hidden gem, it's located in a small building and would definitely be easy to miss unless you are actively looking for it. Good thing for online maps!

As soon as you enter Amare, you will be able to see the brick oven (usually with pizzas in it). It takes about 3 minutes to cook your pizza so the wait time isn't that long. We tried their truffle foie gras pizza and 3 cheese pizza (with added bacon). We also opted to get their brick oven baked ribs (pictured).

The truffle foie gras was excellent, but you would taste the truffle more than the foie gras, the texture of the foie gras was there though, at this point I'm just nitpicking as I absolutely loved this pizza. 3 cheese was comprised of cheddar, mozzarella, and parmesan. They even let charm put the cheese and bacon before shoving it into the brick oven.

The true highlight for me was the ribs! It was absolutely fantastic! It's not the fall off the bone version of ribs, but still pretty tender. I loved their version of bbq sauce as it wasn't too sweet like regular baby back ribs. Ribs was juicy, bbq sauce was perfect and serving size was pretty decent. Even the veggies on the side were good.

I've found my perfect meal in Baguio and will be coming back every time im in the area. Resident Baguio rib eater Alexander A also approves! 128077🏻

Within the past few years, Baguio City has been an up and comer in the restaurant scene. Proprietors envision to open minds and palates of food-goers to foods not many have properly tasted. Amare is one of those restaurants.

Amare is as close to Italian you can get with their signature brick-oven pizzas. Just like pizza in Italy, they maintain the simplicity of having four ingredients or less, but still have a burst of flavors in each bite.

Brick oven-baked pizza is the score! A rather unconventional way of baking your pizza. And you can request them to make the pizza yourself! 128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼
