Italiann's Shang

So as was our usual thing on Sundays,  we were on the prowl for a good resto after Sunday mass.

Alas  somehow we always find ourselves in one of The  Bistro Group's restaurants because of our BFF card.

So yesterday,  gravitated towards Italianni's.

If only for their freshly made foccacia and dinner roll, I would not mind returning to Italianni's time and time again. Nothing like freshly baked bread to make the family really happy. Dipped in olive oil and balsamic vinegar, I can almost see myself back in Italy.

As soon as that plate landed on the table, it was zip, gone, wiped out. Our kids are not called "the piggery" for nothing haha.

Fall-off-the-bone, sweet and flavorful, this is how we like our ribs. We ordered half a slab and along with the rest of what the family selected , the portion was just right for the 7 of us.

I would imagine that the complimentary fresh off the oven  bread would be enough as starter for our "piggery". Alas the kids are nothing but consistent . True to form , after  requesting for more complementary bread,  they still ordered Truffle Chips  to munch on while deciding which mains to order haha

Yes we always save room for dessert but usually by hopping to another resto or a specific dessert place. Today however, they were intrigued by the Boccone Dolce Di Mango P395. 

The frozen five layer cake, mango ice cream, meringue and fresh mangoes was a marvel to behold. Think frozen brazo with mango ice cream and cubes of fresh mangoes...yum!


What can I say? Italianni's is consistently good . That is why we keep coming back.

Check them out and let me know how it turns out for you.

Italianni's is located at the 6th level East Wing of Shangrila Plaza Mall Ortigas Mandaluyog City


 Its always a treat when the family is complete a and we can all sit down and have drinks and dinner together. Coupled with the promo Italianni's have on some of their cocktails from 5-7 pm, we had a blast..

Mojito ( all kinds ) , summer plunge, etc were only P85 per order from 5-7 pm even without the bff card (bistro card)

Then for bff card holders  at 7 pm-9 pm Italianni's have their overflowing wine promo at P485 if I remember correctly  below P500.  Bottomless wine for those who love their vino... Yay!

They only accept walk-ins though . No reservations.

Food was good as well. My 81 year old father-in-law was happy with his pan fried salmon and mango shake.

If you find something wrong with your order, just call the attention of your server like what we did. Unica found her favorite mushroom truffle pasta a bit on the bland side and requested for a bit of a tweaking. Cai our charming and gracious server was happy to oblige. She took the plate and returned it to the kitchen. In no time, only daughter had her perfect pasta. 

The boys had baked zitti, ravioli and liempo. Me and the hubby  had the cheese and charcuterie plus the mussels to go with our wine.

Service was impeccable. Special mention to Cai who were very patient with us and the rest of the staff who were all genuinely in happy spirit. Yes we felt their good vibes.

That was one delicious and intoxicating family meal last night.... hic and burp hahaha
