We were attracted by the overall look- like a real Italian trattoria. We were not disappointed. The bread appetizer consisted of small toast and mini pizza triangles with 3 kinds of dip- home made liver spread, chopped tomatoes and whipped butter. Yummy! We ordered steak, mushroom risotto and seafood salad to share. All tasted true Italian. What confirmed to us this was authentic Italian? When a family group of 8 Italians came in near the end of our lunch. This being Serendra, expect price commensurate to locale.

It wasn't first time to try them, and although most of the food on their menu are very hard to pronounce but the food is really good... I tried their Ravioli all' Aragosta ( ravioli filled with lobster ) and cream sauce... It was yummy! My officemate tried their Capresse and it looks amazing.. I'm. Just way too shy to take a picture. 128522128522128522 will try it next time...
Staff are good, good ambiance and the price was fair enough...

I ordered their Trofie o Fusili al Pesto (P370) because (1) it's the cheapest pasta on their menu, (2) I'm a pesto fan. I super loved it!!! It was super yummy and it didn't have a plant-like taste 12854110024128077🏽 The ambience was also nice! 10024

Could not pronounce anything on the menu, but the only word I needed to describe my dinner was "Mmm!" (and the only thing cheesier than that opener was the mozzarella on my appetizer). Fancy brickwork on the inside gave it a romantic feel, with friendly staff and a waiter who convincingly pronounced our orders in their original Italian phrasing. Well worth the 400-500 a plate.

If you want to taste Italian, this place is highly recommended. Got ourselves Spaghetti Prescattora, seafood pasta in tomato sauce which soooo delicious. You can really taste seafood, "hindi tinipid". The Margarita Pizza is also good. Plus the service is fast. 127829127837127860

The Polpo was depressingly chewy like rubber! Informed the server and was just told they will inform the kitchen. That's it! Great!

Would rather spend a buck at Donosti's than go to Balducci and order this dish again!

Ciao,

So we were asked to seat outside Balducci since both places (Murray) were like friendly neighbors to each other. The manager (or the owner?), Kelvin introduced us to one of their signature cocktails called ‘Te Amo’. It has 3 layers which I already forgot what was it supposed to represent (or it depicts) but it goes like this; it started really mild (like a sweet caress) then goes wild (or hardcore) but ends really sweet. It’s more of a love-making thing that’s why it was named like that. 128517 Good job! 128143

We also tried one of their samplers which I really can’t recall what it’s called, and what they are except for the chicken fingers and the peanuts. I can recall that I like the chicken fingers and the egg that was like cooked with milk and cheese that tastes like pancakes. I don’t know what it’s called, but I’m a bit sure that this was an off-the-menu dish. It was all good and enjoyed every bite of it. 128513

The band playing that night was impressive. They play some groovy country songs with some folk-infused vibe in every nummer. 128526

Would like to go back and try their mains for real. I heard their pasta dishes were to die for and their pizzas as well. So I guess I’ll see you soon, Balducci!

Their spinach ravioli was very creamy and flavorful. You can really taste the ricotta cheese in the tomato sauce. 128525

Among the dishes we ordered, the pasta in truffle sauce with prosciutto (in the photo) was the one that easily became my favorite. The cream wasnt overpowering and the saltiness of the prosciutto was a perfect distraction from the creaminess hugging your mouth. (Although if i had it my way, i would most definitely add more prosciutto into the dish. 128513) The pasta alone makes this place worth the visit.

One of a few Italian restaurants in the metro that does it the authentic way. Try their Bistecca Disossata alla Griglia con Spinaci!

It's been a while. I've been very lazy. I just came back from Tokyo. I had an overdose of Japanese food. I've been eating a lot of local foods. Tonight I want authentic Italian.
Balducci was a bit disappointing. Foods didn't live up to my expectations. Service was so so. But place has that Italian touch filled with pics of famous tourist spots in Italy. when it comes to pasta, main entree, desserts and service Va Bene would be a ran away winner. Next would be My Kitchen. Balducci came up short of my expectations. Nothing fancy to say food is amazing.

The place was very nice, very ideal for a romantic date. Service was excellent. Waiters were very polite, attentive and helpful. We ordered 2 pasta ( Ravioli di Ricotta e Mascarpone alla Balducci & Spaghetti alle Vongole in Bianco ) both had generous amount of sauce & meat (crab & clams). I was disappointed by the steak (Bistecca Disossata alla Griglia con Spinaci), I'm expecting a very juicy and flavorful steak but it was just OK. However, when I requested to replace the vegetables to french fries they didn't hesitate to change it. Overall, it was satisfactory. :)

Italian resto in Serendra. They have huge servings here, so the price is quite justifiable. I loved their salad and pasta with mushrooms!

My long overdue review for this restaurant. Ate here a few days ago with my boyfriend's family. Loved the mushroom ravioli and the steak but what we really liked most was the seafood pasta that the chef made for us. When the waiter noticed that we couldn't choose our pasta, he told us that we could actually request for pasta that's not found on the menu from the chef. We were both craving for cream-based seafood pasta so we requested for that. The chef obliged and sent us one of the yummiest pastas we've tried (see photo). My boyfriend's siblings loved it too. :) Will surely go back to this place. The feel and ambience great for having nice conversations with family and friends.

We went there for lunch on a Saturday. We were the only customers that time. The ambiance was great and since it's an Italian resto, bread and spreads are free.

Good food! We got an executive lunch. Me and my boyfie both chose Caesar Salad for an appetizer and it was good. The main course was really mouth-watering!! The pasta, al dente, the meat was tender and tasty!

After finishing everything, we were really satisfied and full (take note, we're not bloated!) 128540

Overall, we had an awesome lunch at Balducci!

Must try! 128077128077
