Weekend Food Choices Week 85: Italian Love
Hubby decided to take me on a lunch date out of town but when i got a view of the restaurant’s facade, i couldn’t help but be a little doubtful.
After all, i will never forget the 7-11 proposal *wink*
We’ve passed this place tons of times on our way to Taal Vista but i never realized it would actually be a decent restaurant
a view of the interiors immediately erased my doubts
Amoroma means I love Rome
this is the Mastropietro family’s Italian restaurant that serves fresh home made Roman dishes cooked from scratch
the checkered table tops in the dining area definitely set the mood for a casual Roman meal
hubby heard that their chili oil was great
we were excited to drizzle it over the famous brick oven pizza we ordered
Surprisingly, we didn’t have to wait long for our dishes
On our table:
5 Formaggi and Prosciutto Pizza (Php465)
Prosciutto is a thinly sliced dry cured ham -one of my favorite
but honestly, the plain cheese pizza won that day…so creamily delicious!
The perfect marriage of sweet, salty, and tangy flavors on a crunchy base …so mouthwatering!
Vongole Linguine (Php250)
Al dente linguine drenched in clam and tomato sauce
we finished off our wonderful lunch with freshly ground capuccino paired with choice dolci
Blueberry Cheesecake (Php175)
we weren’t crazy about their cheesecake (purple oven’s version is still the best we’ve tasted so far) but the classic Roman dolce we ordered was pretty good
a soft, bitter sweet dessert that gave our meal a perfect ending
Amoroma will definitely be on our itinerary whenever we visit Tagaytay
…much like everything else in life, a restaurant should never be shunned because of its facade.
You might just find a good meal in an unlikely place…you never know
