After that motivational symposium of entrepreneurs organized by Startup PH held at Microsoft’s office in Ayala, me, Ungri and Dennis ran across an old friend while in the area- the Italian restaurant A Veneto Napoli Pizzeria Ristorante. Thus a late yet belly-bursting dinner commenced!
An old friend because it was my family’s go-to place for Sunday family dinners when it still had a branch right across Eastwood City. I remember whenever there’s a celebration- be it Christmas or someone’s birthday, the fam-bam would usually eat here or order out. Eventually the branch closed so we weren’t able to eat A Veneto anymore as the next nearest branches would be in Silver City, Trinoma and Glorietta- places we don’t usually go nor have easy access to, so yeah.
Strolling around Ayala Triangle after the event, I was pleased to see a branch of A Veneto there. I suddenly became hungry and urged my friends to have a quick stop here before going home. Thankfully, they had no qualms on eating here so we went in and ordered up after having looked at the menu.
My all-time favorite here (as well as my family’s) would be the Mussel Sauce Parmigiana– red sauce Italian pasta uber-rich in tomato, melted mozzarella cheese and baked mussels sided with tasty and fluffy garlic bread. For some it’s kinda weird, yes? Well, it was for me at first. But somehow I got hooked on it after the first bite and it’s been my favorite ever since! Give it a chance and maybe you’ll end up just like how I did.
One order of pasta is already good for two to three persons, and the same goes for their 16″ pizzas. No need to be picky for their pizza flavors, as what they have are usually the ones you’d see in any Italian restaurant or fastfood chain serving pizza- various combinations of meat, bacon, vegetables, seafood, cheese toppings, etc. Nothing out of the ordinary. Two orders of pasta, 16″ pizza and bottomless drinks for you and three of your friends would equal to 345 PHP each. Not bad for this pseudo-authentic and yummy experience!
