the Corleones go to Piccolo Mondo
Away from the trickles of restos circling Tagaytay lies a quaint li’l place named Piccolo Mondo. Situated near Angelino’s and Mushroom Burger (hmm both places bring back good ole childhood memoirs) it’s a nice place to savor authentic Italian cooking, no less than by the owner itself, which I know by now you’ve guessed already, yup, an Italian!
This restaurant reminds me of Godfather and the town of Sicily, there’s this homey feel to it + the cool breeze, ahhh good feelin’. It’s really a place for pure family dining (a.k.a mafia meetings hehe)
Since it’s our first time here minus my brother (he ate at the now defunct Alabang branch) we were very careful on what to choose. We decided to play safe by ordering pizza.. no pasta for us since my mom already made her ever famous fettucine alfredo (ginaya sa Friday’s) earlier that day (post bday handa for zoe & kuya)
First pick is Pizza Arrabbiata
i like this better than meditterana. this roundie's got mozzarella,spicy salami, olives and italian sausage.
honestly it tastes ummm what's the term? funky:) i dunno. was it the capers or the artichokes? good thing it has bacon and ham! or else..
this one, a staple in every italian restaurant and the most famous nibble-food in italy before serving the main course
pita bread or thinner version of focaccia? i'm not sure, the server said it was focaccia.. oh well he works there so he wins
it's always served with a dip: mixture of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and parmesan cheese..
Gelato? nah i passed. we went back to the trickles of restos hehe
a frappuccino is better to end an italian meal:) looks familiar eh?
