Upper Ground Floor Building A, SM Megamall

Date of Visit: Nov. 21, 2007

The first time I tried Italianni’s Angel Hair Pomodoro, I fell in love with it. That was more than 10 years ago. Up to now, it is still the dish we never fail to include in our order list. Another must-try is their Romano Chicken Caesar Salad. It is already a meal in itself. The salads are served in generous portions that can be shared. The complimentary straight-from-the-oven Foccacia Bread and the Tuscan Bread served with balsamic vinegar and olive oil are enough to fill you. They’re delicious!

Italianni’s is a casual Americal-Italian resto with a relaxed atmosphere. The staffers are efficient and well trained. The manager or a staff will check on you every so often during your meal to ask about the food they has just served.

Food here is really great but the price is on the steep side. For a family of 4, dining here is already something to save up for. My husband even asked me why Italian dishes are overpriced like most pasta dishes when according to him, it seems so easy to make them at home. Take for example the pomodoro wherein the ingredients are just fresh tomatoes, some herbs and spices. But honestly, I have tried several times to replicate their Angel Hair Pomodoro at home but my version seems to lack something -- that Italianni’s zing! So, I guess it’s not that easy…since it’s pretty hard to capture that distinct Italian flavor.

Dining here is always something to look forward to.
