The pizzas we had- quattro formaggi and one with meat on it (forgot the name) - were good. In fact it was slightly above average. The antipasti we had was excellent - grilled vegetables with pizza bread.

I had the spaghetti mezzanotte which would have been better if the pasta were a bit more fresh. Maybe it was because the pasta was reheated. The risotto porcini was tasty but the consistency was a a little dry. Maybe because they used ordinary rice. Risotto should be made with special rice varieties like arborio and carnoroli.

While it was a bit of disappointment I was glad there are restaurants like Il Gallo Nero trying to excel in Italian cuisine.

Recently stayed at Alfonso hotel and enjoyed a delicious meal at the Il Gallo Nero restaurant, the pizzas are lovely with a delicious crispy crust. Also had a lovely italian chicken dish. The restaurant also has a large selection of worldwide wines. And is a nice quiet place away from the main street to enjoy dinner and the beautiful sunsets of Tagaytay.

Relaxing, nice food, attentive service. I had Frito Misto, not exactly like Italy but tasty none the less. Our party ordered several pizzas thin crust European type also very good. We have visited 5 or 6 times over the past few years and we are always satisfied.

we had fun even when if we had to add more to their basic breakfast & we had to go to the lobby (near the parking area) to access the wifi. Our room smell quite damp and old but the staff were accomodating even late at night

The price of their pizza makes this pizzeria average. If it is not pricey, I would rate it as very good.

The place is in Alfonso thus, it's a little bit far from Tagaytay yet close to Twin Lakes.

If you want a more private place, visit this place. It's a small pizzeria attach to Alfonso Hotel.

You can also stay in the hotel.
