Their porchetta, osso buco & pizza are my favorite. Their frozen hot chocolate is a delight to choco lovers. And don't forget their fudge - I always take home tons and are always in my "pasalubong from davao" list.

Simple menu but with good food choices. Excellent pizza made in the oven near the dining area. Home cooked food so make sure to be early if you want to try lasagne
