Try the La Loca pizza. Thin crust and fully seasoned. The coffee they served was also good. :)

1st 5 star review! I'm fond of Italian dishes so when I saw the reviews this restaurant had, I didn't hesitate to try it out and I'm glad I did because it didn't fail to deliver. Love their tartufo pasta, the truffle oil taste is very evident. The parma ham provided a nice contrast to the creamy goodness of the pasta. Their staff was also very attentive to our needs. I love the location of the store, it was very quaint and unassuming. Would love to come back and try other dishes. :)

Back again for some Tartufo! This time we ordered Mushroom Bruschetta (off menu) to go with it. Topped with ingredients pretty much the same as tartufo, the Bruschetta took me further to Mushroom Heaven via death by carbo-loading. 128519

Craving definitely satisfied! 9786

TARTUFO!!! This is by far the best Truffle Pasta anywhere in the Metro! It may be expensive but one taste and you'll understand why. The Parma Ham on top just works! It adds a bit of saltiness and texture on the already perfect pasta dish! Wow! I just can't comprehend how I never knew of this place all these years! It's like a well kept secret of the elite. 128513

Once you are seated inside, it is quite easy to forget that you are still in Metro Manila as this restaurant is exactly what I imagine the local restaurants in Italy would be like.

My favorite here is the tartufo pasta because the presence of truffle is quite evident in this dish. Once it is brought to your table, the smell of the truffle cream alone will have you salivating and make you regret not ordering 2 of this for yourself! The pasta is al dente and coated with the perfect amount of truffle cream making sure not to drown the pasta in the sauce.

Let's also not forget their Risotto Colorato (Vegetable Risotto) which is a mix of fresh veggies like mushrooms, asparagus, carrots and zucchini all cooked to perfection! Each vegetable retains a certain amount of bite leaving the risotto to be one of my favorite Risottos in Manila!

Had dinner here earlier.
Their chicken liver pate was delicious and was a perfect match to their pita bread.
The kids loved the carbonara.
Half cheese and half pepperoni ftw! Not on the menu but they accommodated our request.
Service was excellent!
A bit pricey but it was worth it!

While eating this delicious (and cute!) pizza, this song kept on playing in my head..

I honestly don't know why La Nuova's margherita pizza didn't make it to spot.ph's Top 10 Margherita pizzas in manila list, it's definitely one of the better ones I've tried and I consider myself a margherita freak 128516

Plus, love the ambience of this quaint little place, perfect for valentine's day10084

We were only supposed to only hear mass because of my wife's sensitive pregnancy, but she pleaded to go on a quickie and sudden Sundate. She's been cooped up at home for the past couple of weeks on doctor's orders, so we're grabbing her fave tartuffo pasta and some pizza before heading home. We love truffle cream and the pasta was wonderful. The aroma alone will have you salivating. We just wished it was cooked al dente though. The house specialty pizza with its Parma ham and asparagus was the perfect complement to our pasta.

Many in our group have been to Italy multiple times and all agreed, the pasta here rivaled any that we have had in Italy.
Everytime .. we all fell in love with the homemade pasta which is lighter than air... Friends know my love for this place & brought over some of my faves:

truffle pasta with Parma ham it was fresh, flavorful, light and delicious.

Spinach pizza is healthy , crust is thin with a little chew to it. Everything is cooked from scratch and cooked to order.. meal has always been exceptional "ottima"!

Cozy and warm atmosphere - perfect for great conversation with family & friends when dining in...

With thoughtful friends like mine, they have brought a little piece of Italy (food, ambiance and charm) to warm up my room & hv lunch & spend some time with me 9786128525128525

Nothing special and the menu prices did not match the interior & ambience. Maybe it's because they're situated in the Forbes Park area hence the high prices?

We only tried their sandwiches though and it seems the pastas are the bestsellers here. Maybe next time, IF there's a next time.

Pictured above it their VERY watered down cappuccino. 128078128078128078

This is by far the best pesto al mara the we tasted the pasta is aldente and the white sauce taste good very well balanced the only flaw is the squid is over cooked that made it rubbery but the clams and the mussels all made up for it. The pizza is great as well the crust is perfectly cooked and there's lots of spinach in the pizza that overpowered the tiny bitsy chorizos. All in all i love the place and i will come back for their salad and ham and cheese selections. La dolce vita. Ciao

I don't usually write reviews, and actually this is my very first.

Well, it is indeed a nice place but not that big. As for the food, I give it 5/5!! The best Tartufo pasta I've ever tasted! Will come back again to try a solo plate of that 'cause my friends and I tried the Trittico pasta or 3 kinds of pasta of our choice so as expected small servings for each. :))

As for the calamari fritti (the one posted), since I'm searching for the best calamari in town, I found it here! :) (hoooray)

I will definitely come back for that and try their pizzas as well :)

Quick review! Came back here for lunch today because we were craving for their Vongole al Vino Bianco. This simple pasta dish of spaghetti, baby clams, olive oil and white wine is definitely one of our favorites!

For this visit, though, we opted to order Trittico Pasta, in which you'd get three kinds of pasta of your choice. We got Vongole al Vino Bianco (we prefer this with angel hair pasta but we forgot to tell the waiter), Aglio Olio di Pesce (same as the first one but with a variety of seafood, instead), and Tarfutto (truffle, cream-based with parma ham). As expected, we loved the oil-based ones! I also had high expectations for their Tarfutto because I've read good reviews about it, and it surely did not disappoint! To balance out our pasta, we also ordered Calamare Fritti. We loved this, too! The squid was fresh and the batter was flavorful.

Can't wait to try other dishes on my next visit!

Have been going to this place for years and I can say that they serve consistently good quality food 5✳️✳️✳️✳️✳️. Sometimes I find it a little expensive for just a regular day lunch, but when I crave for good pasta, or pizza they never disappoints.978697869786

Pasta is tasty, always seasoned and cooked perfectly IMO..... and portions are hearty (for one female person with my appetite 128540). So it's good to share .

Only downside is- the place is so tiny so you can hear the next tables conversation or it's packed with locals ( residents from Forbes , dasma or fort) during lunch 128542

Service is good coz I'm a regular 9786️..5✳️✳️✳️✳️✳️

my fave dishes:

tartufo pasta with Parma ham ( as shown on pic)5✳️✳️✳️✳️✳️ ...

Vongole al vino Bianca 4✳️✳️✳️✳️ spaghetti with LOADS of baby clams,olive oil and white wine

Carciatora pizza 5✳️✳️✳️✳️✳️ thin crust pizza , tomato sauce , capers , olives , cheese , anchovies & pepperoni
