Linguini Fini recently opened last September 8, 2014. The Manila branch is the only other branch that they have, the first being in Hong Kong.
According to their website:
"Linguini Fini is an Italian restaurant rooted in New York culture. That means it's not short of raw American passion with a distinct sense of style and attitude. But that's just the surface stuff. When you dig a little deeper into what we're about, you'll discover the essence of authentic Italian food. It's fresh produce. It's locally-sourced. And 100% home-made.
It's no wonder a meal at Linguini Fini is full of flavor. Because Italian food tastes so much better when you know it's pure, real and here for the good of the planet. The proof is in the pasta."
We were able to try their Longganisa Pizza and Pappardelle which is another handmade pasta. The texture of the past was different from the instant pasta that I have had in the past. It's thicker and the taste is more prominent. It's also more cheweable compared to others. Aside from that though, there wasn't really anything outstanding about this in my opinion. Perhaps I'm more of a pesto pasta kind of gal but it just didn't cut it for me.
The Longganisa Pizza was a totally different story though. This one, from the first bite to the last was a winner. I loved the crust, I loved the sauce, I loved the overall taste of it. It was earthy and meaty. It was delicious. I think this is the kind of pizza best paired with either a cold bottle of beer or a large soda. Since I'm not really much of a drinker, I opted for soda.
Linguini Fini is a perfect spot for friends to hang out as well as employees who just wants to unwind. Good food, great ambiance with all the street art designs on their wall that one can easily forget he is in a busy restaurant inside a mall.
Linguini Fini is located at the 3rd floor of SM Mega Fashion Hall.

* I was invited to review the food. I did not pay for my meal. However, the free meal did not in any way sway my opinion and everything you read here is MY PERSONAL OPINION.
