Everyone I know is always on the lookout for an authentic Italian place. Sadly, there are only a few in Manila so when I was invited by a good friend of mine to try out Buca di Beppo which just recently opened in BGC Corporate Center in Taguig, I was more than ready to give it a go.
First impressions of the place was that it really gave its best effort to make you feel like you were in Italy. The decor, wall photos, and posters on the ceiling were all reminiscent of old Italy.
I love that you can have the 2nd floor closed for functions and you can have your Italian party at an all time high without disturbing the people downstairs. There is also a Pope's table where you can feel like you're dining with the Pope.
Now on to the food. I personally loved the Marinara. Seriously. I would have eaten the entire plate by myself because it was just so darn good. The carbonara for me had too much cheese which did not sit well with me coz I prefer my pasta with just the right amount of cheese and the lemon chicken was tangy.
I'd definitely come back to this place if only to eat the Marinara which was just really perfect. Seriously. Buca di Beppo has the best marinara in the city in my opinion.
What made this experience really great though was being able to spend time with these ladies. As always, good food + great company = awesome meal.
Come dine with me? See you at Buca di Beppo located at BGC Corporate Center 30th Street.
