Authentic healthy Italian cuisine with vibrant romantic atmosphere spot yet price is affordable, what can I asked more with C’Italian.
Some of my travel bucket lists abroad is to visit Italy and definitely would like to savor the taste with their dishes. Minimalist I suppose where the combination of natural ingredients like garlic, tomatoes or olive oil would be some of the simple content I would like to indulge. Healthy intake that some of them have nutritional value that you cannot be guilty if one is in control weight program.
This is maybe the reason I still enjoyed updating this food blog when I saw there were still food that I love to taste yet unique and healthy on its own which got me interest with C’Italian.
Got this headache all the while when a foodie meet-up was set. But when I saw their specialty Panizza, my route of going home lead me to this Italian restaurant.
We were served five different Panizza namely Rolls Royce, Angelico, Kristina, Jando and Kar Michael. Panizza is a hand-rolled pizza . Price range between P 600 to P 750 for big size while solo from P 270 to P 350.
Panizza is a thin crust rectangular-shaped pizza divided into strips with and 4 to 7 toppings. To make the eating more exciting, hand-rolled each strips with alfalfa sprouts and arugula. What good about it once you started digging in, I can marry both the love for pizza and salad into one. Crunchy to the max and dryness of not being so oily made each bite a taste of Italian food rendezvous.
Among the 5 Panizza, I enjoyed more the taste of Rolls Royce – with its salami, shrimp, scallop flakes and sundried tomatoes that rolling it up made the dish refreshing and complimented each bite.
We feasted different kinds of pasta like Linguine Al Tartufo E Proscuitto, Penne Roborto, Spanghetti Polpette and Liguine Al Fruitti de Mare.
Lavished with cream / sauce and main topping like meatballs, seafood, chicken fillet, still, all in above, my fave would be Linguine Al Tartufo. This super simple pasta served to us is al dente that each bite has its own firmness. The truffle pleasant smell made it a decadent flavor ending it as a delicious taste afterall.
This Risotto Kristina like Tartufu has a truffle oil that made the smell very appetizing to taste. Blended well with seafood like salmon and prawns, the meal create to each-its-own feeling, personal preference of comfort food.
Flank Steak cooked with preferences from medium rare to well-done w/ baked pumpkin and potatoes. I was still on the look-out on the traditional like sauce and mashed potatoes on the side to make it more enticing to eat.
Maybe I was have enough when Tuscan Roasted Chicken served to us. Anyway, the aroma of rosemary and sesame are visible that satisfy the flavor once the season is blend even I find it too oily to taste that made the rice inside saggy.
I was still on the lookout of the hint taste of lemon that overpowers more the sweetness of this Lemon Cheese Cake that was served to us.
If its Italian food, Tiramisu will always be there, conceived as the one of the famous coffee dessert. Melt-in-your-mouth feeling that leave an exquisite taste as we ended our satisfied food trip with C’Italian.
As I end the night, one thing for sure, will surely bring hubby here – recommended dating place where we can just relax, share those intimate talk and enjoy the best of Italian food.
