Weekend Food Choices Week 85: Italian Love


Some good things can be found in the most unlikely places

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

So good!

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

Tiramisu (Php185)

Italian mascarpone cheesecake

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

  2. The food looks great, and the Tiramisu just looks to die for, I’m wishing I was eating it right now.
