Bellini’s Italian Hotspot Date Spot!

Ah, Bellini’s- that restaurant where Basha and Popoy spent timeless moments hanging out with their friends in the most-acclaimed romcom drama Pinoy movie “One More Chance.” We finally had a chance to dine here!

It’s located along the widely hipster-known place in Quezon City, ‘Cubao Expo‘ and pretty much every college student who likes to drink, hang out and listen to non-mainstream music knows about it. If you’re not one of that bunch, you can make your way to Gateway and then to Gen. Romulo Ave. near Puregold and the bus terminal.

Going inside this Italian-authentic restaurant changed the ambiance to a more pleasant and serene one, but maybe it’s just me? The interiors and the bubbly foreign owner, who also talked to us, probably helped bring that feel. The menu and the dishes are pretty-straight forward written in Italian, but the description in mini-text would guide you to what you’d like to order. The waitress, too, after ringing the bell set on your table, would come rushing to assist you and take your order right away.

I’ll be honest- dining here was somewhat expensive for me, but I guess these price hikes are included in the package if you want to get a step closer to ‘real’ Italian cuisine, and that ‘date place feel’ of course. I even spotted a friend’s younger sister on a date here on the day we visited. Who? That’s a secret. Haha.

Anyway, here are what we had:

Penne ala Arrabiata – 260 PHP

Maremonti – 300 PHP

Pasta 3 Colorealla Rustica – 280 PHP

Quattriza Pizza (Large) – 610 PHP

One thing’s for sure- they taste REALLY different from your local Italian-serving foodie places. I don’t know if it’s the kind of cheese, tomato sauce, or other ingredients used, but they’re different in a good and tasty way- a kind of foreign deliciousness one must experience at least once.

Initially, I thought the amount of pasta per serving was too little. Surprisingly though, I was full before I even got to finish my second serving of pizza after pasta consumption. Don’t let the serving fool you. To end the meal, we were given a shot of complimentary dessert wine, which was tasty! It was like caramel with alcohol lol.

Anyway, try this place out with a loved one for that pseudo-Italian-authentic super date!

    I tried not to drool while reading this post. Haha. I have an affinity for anything Italian and I guess I’m gonna add this to the must-visit places when in North.XD

      Same here. :) A little more bland than our usual salty and savory local pseudo-Italian cuisines, but it’s a blandness that speaks of authenticity. Tell me about it whenever you get to try the place! ^_^
