I love their tomato sauces. Perfect for my taste buds. Gnnochi lost the potato feel though. It felt like pure pasta. But again, the tomato sauce! :)

We had our dinner here on celebration of my boyfriend's mother. Service was great, food was good but the atmosphere and ambiance seems very lonely.

Sure this resto doesn't compare to Italy, but nowhere does. In terms of the Philippines, it's one of my favorite and consistent quality. No issues with service, decor, venue and pricing while not cheap is at least reasonable. The seafood pasta is my gal's favorite in the PI as well.

Apparently this resto has several branches in Cebu; I tried the one in the top hills, which has a wonderful view, by the way. Actually, the view, the setup and the light there may be deemed outstanding. Food was pretty fair and not expensive at all. I went for fish (lapu-lapu) with boiled potatoes and I have to admit that... More

La Tegola has nearly ten branches, mostly in Cebu. This is a review of the Busay branch, near Tops, way up the hill past Marco Polo. Was driving back from Santa Fe, Bantayan island. Drove off the ferry at Hagnaya and took the west coast road south for the first time. Crossed the island via Balamban. Gorgeous scenery, very mountainous.... More

Probably this was a good restaurant when it first opened: now that it has expanded (there are 5-6 location in Cebu / Lapu Lapu), the food is below standard.

Giving this review for the Ayala Center branch. Had lunch here with my son and nephew. We ordered two pizzas which they liked. I got the lasagna which was okay. Interior of the restaurant was also okay - just like your in Italy. Staff on the other hand needs a little more training but there all courteous though.
