We tried the Margherita pizza (good but used dried basil), porkchops (tasty but thin sliced), farfalle in truffle sauce (best of the lot), and the minestrone soup (good and fresh). Service was attentive. Only let down was that they ran out of San Miguel Pilsen.

Delicious authentic Italian food coupled with excellent (and fast) service makes this a definite must-try in Bacolod! Particularly loved the baked oysters, The Godfather pizza, and the Farfalle al Funghi in truffle sauce! Was too full for desserts this time around, but the chocolate cake and panna cotta also looked extremely promising. Would definitely come back for a second (and... More

For pasta, We ordered Farfalle in Truffle Cream Sauce - DELICIOSO! i can't get enough of it. For pizza, Margarita and Four cheese. Both are flavorful crispy thin crust pizza. Serving size are proportional to the price. A bit expensive but it is worth it because of its good quality food. For the place, it has a nice "Art" gallery... More

Our dining experiences were always superb. The staff were so nice. But its their food that you should try. Had their tomato based calamari pasta. Great taste! but It was so drenched with butter/oil. Nevertheless, still great cooking. Their panna cotta always had me! Nom!

I had no reservation when I arrived at the place (actually named Cucina Italia) where I always dine when in Bacolod. On a (payday) Friday night it was packed, which speaks for itself. So I sat outside not benefiting from the table cloth and the nice ambiance of the "sala". But the food being the reason of going there I... More

No doubt, the food is top-notch -- pizza, pasta, and the beef carpaccio! Another reason why I enjoyed my dining experience at Italia is the ambience. It has great art and interiors and the staff are attentive so you get a feeling that it is not just your usual casual restaurant. At the same time, it is not snobbish and... More

Was in Bacolod with family for the weekend, and a friend recommended trying out Italia. We really enjoyed our time there! The food was delectable (try the pasta calamari or the double chorizo -- the latter we ordered again cause it was just that good), and the ambiance was just right for a night with family. Italian at its best... More

The place has a nice atmosphere. Displayed are paintings and a sculpture from famous Filipino artists. The price is high for Bacolod standards supposedly but for elsewehere it is a good value considering most Italian restaurants elsewhere in the Philippines would cost Php 500 up. For people looking for Italian food in Bacolod than this place is good. The dishes... More

A good three years have passed since I first ate in this restaurant and between that time and my most recent visit yesterday, I have been to many places far and wide that served Italian food in as many forms as the human mind can imagine. Of those places that I have been to thus far, I can unequivocally say... More

The restaurant officially opened its doors to the public on May of 2000.

One good reason why it came to be was simply to share great Italian cooking to everyone. This was the reason why Italia opened a decade ago, without a menu and no plans nor professional staff to speak of, save for a funny looking Italian,, who cooked really good pasta. And this is the same reason now - ten years after. Be it as it may have developed through the years, the challenge remains the same of serving simply good food to those who walk through the red door.

Italia Restaurant is now located at GF Paseo Verde, Mandalagan Lacson Street, Bacolod City
