We ordered their 12" Pulled Pork Pizza (P428) and Fresh Spinach Tagliatelle with Prawns and Tomato Creme (P320).

The Pulled Pork pizza was a little too sweet for my liking. It was good but I'm just not fond of sweet savory food so I'd like to think I'm giving this pizza a biased judgment. 128523

The pasta was good. I remembered enjoying it because of it's uniqueness (you don't get to eat green pasta errday 128523). You might just want to add chili flakes to make this dish a little more interesting 128293

They didnt have a number of stuff on the menu.
The 4 cheese risotto had no taste.
Service was kinda slow.

The only good thing was that we got a free baked ziti because I paid using my BPI credit card.

Loved the food we ordered: tenderloin steak with saffron risotto 11088110881108811088️️, clam chowder 11088110881108811088️️, and oysters 1108811088️. Chairs were comfy, but I like the interior design of the one in Shangrila mall better. 128522

skip the calamari (serving is small and tastes ordinary), salad (ordinary), and tiramisu (too frozen to eat) and just order the tenderloin with foie. that and truffle risotto or mac n cheese.. solved! 128077

Crusted halibut and risotto was surprisingly good, though a little shy on portions. The place is nice, though the paintings on the wall give me that haunted house vibe; at least it's memorable.

I'd come back. The menu is extensive and full of good sounding choices. I'd love to try more eventually.

The first thing I noticed when I went inside this place was the interiors. Well duh. Haha. Kidding aside, it felt like I was inside a history book.1282119786

As for the food, we got Angus Ravioli and Spinach Proscuitto Truffle pizza. The pasta and pizza were freshly made and all the flavors went well.

I just find the seats too close with the other seats from other tables because the woman behind me was hitting me with her elbow. Haha.

Merienda with my former workmate after the Art Fair Philippines 2015.

He was the one who insisted to have a light meal here-- tho I don't want to because the place was empty. Anyway, I just said yes.

We ordered the ff:
Balboa's signature pizza 127829
Steak (idk what steak tho)
Plus hot Mocha

I liked the pizza, it was thin crust and I could taste some... Uhh... Red wine? 127863 Hihi. The steak was okay, well I can't really tell because I only had one bite of it because I don't want to have those meat shreds on my braces. 128514128584 Mocha, I didn't like it. It was too sweet. It tasted more like sugar. 128532

Interiors were full of hanging bulbs and artworks. 128513 Hahaha. So I felt like I was in another Art Fair again-- but Italian version. Lol 127912

Staffs weren't attentive. Even though my workmate raised his voice for water and bill, no one came to us!!! It took 30 minutes... My workmate even knocked on their kitchen door (?) just so someone could give us the bill and water. They were just talking and whatsoever at the back. 128544

My former workmate was complaining to me about it, and I told him it was his choice of resto. I don't wanna come back here anymore.

When you ask how you want your eggs, make sure it comes out right and not say "the egg was cooked with the pizza already"

Hindi basa yang itlog sa picture!

Ambiance is cozy. Music is right for place.

Service can be improved. There was only a few people when we were dining but it took them 15 mins to refill the water on their own. They should be more attentive.

They also didn't come back to say if the dessert we wanted to order was available or not.
