A taste of Italy in Pampanga

Last weekend, my friends and I trekked up North..since we’re mostly Alabang-Makati peeps, this was a big family road trip for us 🙂 While cruising down NLEX, my friends couldn’t stop raving about C’ Italian Restaurant. I’ve eaten Italian a bajillion times in my 28 years so honestly, I was feeling ho-hum about it at first..I mean if you think about it, how much better can your average pizza/pasta get? Wag lang naman pandesal, ham bits at ketchup..ok na siguro yung pizza na yun, diba? Hehehe.

Before heading to our big Italian dinner, we decided to play a few rounds of UNO. The last time we all played UNO was when we were all kids, so you can imagine all the debates we had in between about the rules for each card! Hahaha! Lumabas ang mga tunay na PIKON sa barkada namin 🙂 After our Nth round of UNO, we finally worked up quite an appetite and were all psyched for C’s 🙂

Who would’ve thought that the BEST Italian restaurant in the country would be in Pampanga and NOT in Metro Manila?! Before taking the first bite of our PANIZZA, all our friends were watching us intently..excited and nervous for me and Patrick. It was such an awkward and momentous occasion, it felt like we were riding a bicycle for the very first time! Haha! But wowza, the PANIZZA lived up to the big build up indeed. One word, KAGULO. The dough was properly seasoned and they certainly didn’t scrimp on the toppings. I’ve tried lots of different rolled up pizzas in Manila, but this certainly is the BEST! We also ordered the Penne Roberto, aldente’ with a rich white sauce and chicken. Their gnocchi and risotto meals are equally yummy too!

The entrees are a bit pricey ranging from Php 600-800 per dish, but the generous servings are good for 2-3 to share. Think anniversary-graduation-birthday-may balikbayan kang pinsan na pwede mong utuin dahil big time na siya-kind of restaurant 🙂
