Low-Key Italian Feels

April 5, 2017

Pizzas have always been the all-time favorite almost-complete meal amongst Filipinos, especially millenials. This yeasted flatbread topped with various types of fixings has long been a worldwide guilty pleasure. I, myself, am a certified pizza gaga, longing for those soft thin crust pizza with the generous share of toppings. As an almost-staple on Filipino tables, numerous pizzerias have sprung from the city, offering their own takes on this favorite.

One of which is Giuseppe Pizzeria and Sicilian Roast. As part of The Nest’s food and drink haven, Giuseppe is in-charge of your Italian cravings, distinct from its neighbors, the French-inspired Maison de Bonbon and whisky bar The Oak Room. The cozy ristorante (articulate that Romanic Italian accent!) serves fares ranging from antipasti (appetizer), zuppa (soup), insalate (salad), and Italian rices to pizzas and pastas.
Meanwhile, its cozy interior carries out a la Industrial Revolution, a play of wood and concrete materials. Its modern space adds a complement to the good food and cozy ambiance.


What I Got for Lunch?

I and a friend of mine tried their Biancaneve All’aglio. This peculiar-sounding pizza generates a taste from a mixture of mozzarella, anchovies, garlic, herbs, and chili. They also boast their pizzas as traditionally cooked in their wood-fired oven (I guess adding a more authentic flavor to the pizza). The garlic, anchovies, and oregano flavors stood out with every bite of the pizza, complementing each ingredient to the others. The thin crust as well was pleasing. Well, if you’re more of a fan of the fast food type of pizza, Biancaneve All’aglio provides more of the staunch Italian relish, different from the sweet Filipino style we were used to. But if your palate is as cosmopolitan as your travel goals, then, worry not!
For dessert, we tried their Tortino di Cioccolato. This chocolate cake, more likely comparable to a lava cake, is a fancy assortment of vanilla ice cream, moist cake, nuts, and cherry.



Experience Giuseppe Pizzeria and Sicilian Roast and the rest of The Nest at Ramon Chavez Street corner Corrales Avenue, Cagayan de Oro City.
