The sibs and I went for out for dinner. We were driving along Visayas Avenue when we spotted this rustic Italian restaurant, A Veneto Pizzeria Ristorante.
The restaurant was cozy and dim. I think they were going for a homey-pubby feel.
The chicken wings was my least favorite on this meal. It is a deep fried chicken wings marinated in exotic herbs and spices smothered in rich sweet chili sauce. It tasted as if it were re-heated and there was nothing special about the sauce. I expected the meat to be moist and juicy but I got dry and quite tough meat.
The pizza was good and served straight from the oven. If given a choice, I just wish the dough could have been thinner for I am a fan of thin crust pizzas. The New England’s Best has ground beef, pepperoni, mushroom, onion, bell pepper, and sausage. There were a few choices for the serving size.
Slice – P120
Small – P280
Medium – P500
Large – P695
What I also learned from this place is that you may make your own pizza. You may put more of the ingredients that you like and omit those that don’t appeal in your taste buds.
This pasta dish has 3 meaty pieces of Italian meatballs on top of a penne pasta which was baked in rich marinara sauce and topped with soft mozzarella cheese. It was so delicious and cheesy. I love how generous they were in the mozzarella. We absolutely dig cheesy pastas.
It was a good dining experience and I’d probably bring some family and friends along with me to try this place out.
