Just after our meeting we headed straight to Gaisano Mall and holy gwakamowli, was I surprised after seeing the almost finished The Peak! It felt like I wasn't in Gaisano Mall!
Anyway, we strolled our way around The Peak. While walking, Juy mentioned that Don Beppe offers delicious Italian food but comes with a price. We stopped by near Don Beppe and was a bit hesitant to go inside to dine there.
We were about to leave when Don Beppe himself chased us. Oh-oh, we're in big trouble.
"Where are you going? Come, join us inside!", Don Beppe said in a heavy Italian accent.
Of course we really can't say NO in front of the restaurant's owner! Nakakahiya plus he was so gentle and nice to us. So we entered the restaurant and tried some of their dishes.
|Don Angelo Pizza|
We first ate Don Angelo Pizza. Very delicious. Like any other pizzas, it was filled with onions, bell peppers, salami and mushrooms. The difference was the tomato sauce itself - it was not too sweet.
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE!
We even tried Pizza Pesto Lover and it was also delicious... actually, it was more delicious than Don Angelo Pizza! Toppings in the Pizza Pesto Lover include a generous amount of sea foods, mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce.
And for pasta, we ordered two: Spaghetti Alla Marinara and Spaghetti Vongole.
|Spaghetti Alla Marinara|
Spaghetti Alla Marinara is a mix of rich and thick tomato sauce, assorted sea foods and olive oil while Spaghetti Vongole comes with a mix of clams and white wine sauce.
If you love tomatoes, try Bruschetta - slices of French bread topped with a generous amount of diced tomato and olive oil.
Oh, Don Beppo even had a mini raffle in our table! The lucky winner shall win an 8-oz champagne. And the winner was no other than Princess!
|Don Beppe and friends|
And for the bill? Surprisingly I only paid 180 pesos. It would have gone cheaper (Php 130) if I didn't order coke.
Gastronimically satisfied. CHECK. Nom nom nom, delicioso!
Don Beppe Ristorante Italiano is located at The Peak, Gaisano Mall of Davao, JP Laurel Ave., Davao City.
