Living in and loving the Philippines have made the Guidicelli family missed their hometown, which is Italy, so much, especially their much-loved dishes, and so fueled by love for their food and their passion to bring an extension of their kitchen to people, Da Gianni Cucina Italiana was born.
Da Gianni Cucina Italiana actually started with two of their trusted helpers and their adored Nonno Gianni, the paternal head of the Guidicelli family. With the passing of Nonno Gianni four years ago, the two helpers who are now partners in their business, have continued to do their recipes alongside John who is the son of Nonno Gianni, making Da Gianni Cucina Italiana one of the favorite Italian restaurants in Cebu and now in Alabang!
Serving food that are an extension of the Guidicelli’s food at home, Da Gianni Cucina Italiana has a wide menu offering, even having some options for vegetarians. Plus, every month, they try to come up and release five different house specials that if received well, would be part of their regular menu.
In the talks of their menu, we were able to try out a few of Da Gianni Cucina Italiana bestsellers that definitely are must-tries such as their pizzas and pastas which are actually what they are known for!
Starting big and strong, their Carnevale Pizza (Php 950) is made for meat lovers like us! Loaded with salami, milano, bacon, salsiccia, meatballs, prosciutto cotto, and angus striploin, this one is truly a present more than nicely done for all you meaty fanatics.
If that pizza of theirs has got you pledging your loyalty to them, wait until you get a fill of their pasta dishes especially their Beef Stroganoff Tagliatelle (Pho 450) which is a fresh pasta you certainly should not miss out on and their Pomodoro and Burrata Tagliatelle (Php 450) which has sauteed tomatoes in olive oil.
From having some carbs, we are jumping back to protein which is exactly what their Porchetta is all about (Single Php 600 | For Sharing Php 875). This is a hefty serving of baked pork belly with mixed herbs that is undeniably good for sharing.
And to top it all off, their Coconut Panna Cotta (Php 290) is truly a delight you would gladly indulge in, especially this one has other variants such as strawberry, blueberry, mango, and nutella – all for you to take and just enjoy!
