Taste of food, quality of pasta and price all good. I think they just need to improve on Service. They have one waitress juggling between 6 full tables. Wine took forever to be brought out. When we followed up she would shout to her assistant loud enough for the small restaurant to hear "hoy yung wine". Later, "hoy water daw". Such a disappointment for a dependable restaurant. Was also disappointed that the lobster pasta was out of stock and might be removed from
Menu.

Plenty of seats, small and cozy, snappy attendants, great customer service, food served warm and tastes fresh, non-stop italian music.

Braised Chicken Pansotti - Fantastic white sauce i slurped every drop, yum, pasta and chicken combo soft at bite, like eating molo swimming in white sauce, yum!

Black Ink Tagliolini - Valentina's snake hair at first glance, but it does taste nice, soft pasta, fresh taste.

Ricotta Eggplant Tortellini - Spicy, tasty tomato sauce, pesto all over, powerful spices, bursting with flavor, yum!

Sweet Mia - That sweet thick super tasty syrup with tiny almond toppings and vanilla ice cream, fanstastic combination, ill return for this, yum!

Homemade Profiteroles - like cream puff stuffed with meat from shepherd's pie, nice but the ice cream and the sea of walnuts and chocolate sauce, i scooped every bit, yum!

Place is very accessible, parking available, forgot to check if they have wifi. Every peso well spent, fine italian food yum!

A small deli located above a gasoline station has been serving out the best Italian dishes in the Metro.

They go by Va Bene.  I haven't eaten a lot of raviolis in my lifetime but lemme tell you this - Va Bene make a mean Italian dumpling.  This is the kind of dish that i wanna bring home and sleep with (not in the weird way).  You can tell that they make the ravioli from scratch,  i cant find the right adjective to describe it.  This is the ravioli that makes other raviolis bad. 

Prices are a bit steep but it is worth every dime.  If you want to be transported to Ravioli Haven,  head on over to Va Bene.

I wanted to try something new. I know it's Friday, payday, plus traffic, but it didn't bother me.

Got there around 9:30pm and they were about to close the restaurant.

We tried the following---

Lobster & Prawns cappellacci - lobster lisque sauce (P590)

Braised Chicken Pansotti - Ravioli, gargonzola cheese sauce (P390)

Amore Cheesecake Strawberry Ice cream (P280)

For someone that's hungry, food wasn't warm enough. It was very flavorful though and the serving size was enough for a single order.

Would I come back? Sure, but not anytime soon.

Ordered the tagliatelle and it was good. The carpaccio was just ok. I can't wait to try the other dishes next time.

What made this place stand out among other Italian restaurants is the choice selection of wines, cheeses and ham. It's also a secret where the owner and chef gets them, which I am still trying to find out. The next killer app of this restaurant is the freshly made pasta. Now that is a half way trip to Italy. The pasta dishes at 500 pesos is the return ticket. I will personally treat you to dinner if it falls below your expectations. Elevating this restaurant above the rest are the salads and appetizers, since you can see all the pics in past posts. Believe me, you have to try it all. Desserts, besides having an in house selection. You hit 2 birds with one stone, it's besides Cuervo and UCC Park. My only complaint if ever would be the cooling system since its not capable of serving a full house on a hot summer luncheon. Oh and first timers not knowing what to order, ask the cook or chef if available to cook you some huge meatballs and sausage Pasta ala First GodFather! Enjoy!!!!

I ordered the Organic Eggs Tagliatelle. The portobello mushrooms, together with the white wine cream sauce, and truffle oil worked so well together in making such a heavenly dish. My boyfriend ordered the Papardelle which had braised lamb shank, black olives, sundried tomatoes, and pecorino cheese. It was also a very appetizing dish! However, he was disappointed to find out that they no longer serve pizzas and the Strawberries a la Milena (his favorite dessert) in this branch. Nonetheless, we still enjoyed our dinner and we had a great time.

It's recommended that you call ahead and make a reservation if you're planning to eat here. The place is small and it usually gets full pretty fast. I hope you enjoy their pastas as much as we did!

Tried out this "almost-5-star" looloo recommended restaurant a couple of weekends ago. First of all, parking might be b*tch if you'll dine on peak hours of the day and to make matters worse you have to pay for your gas station parking spot if you forget to validate your ticket. (I hate paying for parking)

Va Bene offers authentic Italian dishes and portion size is for sharing (good for 2). They have an open kitchen set up so you can see that they whip up everything from scratch. We ordered lobster Capellaci which is a ravioli with lobster bisque sauce and the black ink Taglioni jampacked with seafood.

The food was great however I think they need to work on their A/C. We went there for lunch and I couldn't enjoy my food and wanted to finish ASAP because it was really stuffy inside. Price is a little steep for a pasta dish but I think you're paying for quality food. Give it a shot if you're in the area, it's located above Karen's kitchen shop.

Good food, generous servings.

All these were shared by 3 people.

It is a bit pricey if you'll be eating alone.

I knew you were truffle when you walked in.128076127926

I've been eyeing this place despite its weird location. I've read reviews that they serve really good pasta and it did not disappoint. As for the food, their seafood pasta was good. It did not have the malansa texture and taste at all.

I would say that their Organic Eggs Taglioni was the best truffle pasta I've ever had. It had the right amount of truffle and it was not overpowering. The creamy white wine sauce was the star of the dish. The only miss was it had too little cheese but you can ask for it anyway. Pasta was also freshly made.

For the service, it was pretty slow. Given that only two tables were occupied that time so I'm deducting one star for service.
