Pastanni: Making Italian Pinoy

Italy remains as one of my dream destinations. Who doesn't want to visit this lovely country? Almost every corner of Italy is worth visiting. A good friend of mine told me that the Italian experience is not enough even if you've already visited the grand canals of Venice, Vatican City, Roman Colosseum, Leaning Tower of Pisa, and other historical places. In order to have a legit Italian experience, one should never miss their food. Well, I believe my friend was telling the truth base from what I've seen from the movie Eat, Pray, Love.

Good thing is, you don't need to fly to Italy to experience their food.

Pastanni is an Italian-Filipino street food place in Davao. Their first branch opened in 2012 at Abreeza Ayala Mall and the reception to the public. I have to admit that I am a Pastanni fan since that day. The food is affordable, delicious, and easy to love. Their dishes are quite unique as they incorporate local ingredients to their Italian menu.

After opening their second branch at SM Lanang Premier, guests will be able to try more of their menu as they have a bigger kitchen.

Five Layer Dip

Cheese and Pimiento Sticks

Pinoy Puttanesca

All Mighty Carbonara

Roast Lemongrass Chicken

Primo Pizza

Four Cheese Pizza

Mango Snow

Okay, let me start with their pasta, especially their Puttanesca. I'm a fan tomato-based pasta. The sourer, the better. What makes Pastanni's Puttanesca standout is their ingredient: instead of anchovies,  they put salted fish on it. Their five-layer dip is so delicious and it's a perfect appetizer. For the pizza, my personal favorite is definitely the All Cheese Pizza. Definitely worth the try! For dessert, we sampled their Mango Snow. It's not too sweet, and it's perfect for this hot and humid Davao weather.

Guests shouldn't worry about the price. It's affordable and rest assure that you'll keep on coming to Pastanni to satisfy your Italian craving.

The second branch of Pastanni is located on the ground floor of SM Lanang Premier, right in front BDO.
