And as you go further inside, you will see that there are many things that can capture your attention. From the gelato bar, to the cappuccino bar, up to the different areas for dining – simply eye candy areas – worthy of selfies and groupies.
CASA ITALIA CAFE MENU
Though originating from Singapore, Casa Italia Cafe has numerous food choices inspired from its Italian origin. Name it, from appetizers to main entrants to desserts, they got it covered.
Here are some of the selections that I was able to taste personally.
NUTELLA GELATONINI (P99.00)
I like chocolates. This one is choco enough for me. That’s why, even if I was aiming for only a bite or two of each meal, this one, served first, didn’t see any daylight anymore. hahaha. As I munched up to the last piece.
For Gelato sizes and prices refer here: Piccolo- P130, Medio- P195, Grande- P265
Casa Italia Cafe’s gelato is one of their main products. The guyabano gelato, surprisingly, tasted like real fruit. That’s why this flavor of Casa Itala Cafe’s gelato is a must-try.
WHITE VELVET: (Single serving P195, Double serving P245)
LIMONCELLO (Single serving P195, Double serving P245)
The White Velvet and Limoncello both have liquor added into them. These two are worth your money if you want to add kick to your cold delights.
PUMPKIN SOUP (P150.00)
Their pumpkin soup is a fave instantly as it instantly sizzled my taste buds with the creamy feel. Just right for a starter for the main entree. It somewhat washed off the chocolate in my mouth – in a good sense.
SOLE FILLET with LEMON PEPPER CREAM SAUCE (P490.00)
I am not much for the cream sauce of this dish. It is a bit blunt for me. Plus, probably, I tasted the Hickory Pork Belly first, which is quite tasty, thus the comparison.
ITALIAN BAKED CHICKEN(P330.00)
True to its name, “Italian,” this one taste like a pasta or pizza, that is tomato-based. So imagine eating a pizza, only in a chicken meat. I like this dish, since I prefer that pinch of sour-sweet taste from tomatoes.
HICKORY PORK BELLY(P430.00)
This is my instant favorite, the Hickory Pork Belly. Add more barbecue sauce and it is similar to the ones from Rack’s. I have a bit of a bias to that BBQ-type of sauces.
SUNNY DAY DREAM (P650.00)
MIDNIGHT SURPRISE (P450)
Casa Italia Cafe’s assorted cold drinks and shakes is also worth the try. A lot of choices to choose from. Whether you want fruit based or coffee-based drinks, they have.
Casa Italia Cafe has its own wifi connection for customers.
As I mentioned, any spot in Casa Italia Cafe sports that sense of classy and artistic design. Thus, it is really cool to take photos at any section of the store. So, better take that pose of yours for Instagram, Facebook or Snapchat.
