Just outside of the Hypermarket in The Block, SM North Edsa is Giulia by Casa Italia
Casa Italia is a casual dining restaurant in Bonifacio Global City. They seeked to expand their business which led to a more western approach on food by Giulia
Fun fact: Named after the grandmother’s owner
What came to our table first was the Four Cheese Pizza (Php 295) (thin crust pizza topped with mozzarella, white cheese, emmenthal and cheddar cheese) – it was cheesy good
The second was the Creamy Prawn Pasta. It had a little spice to it and it was delicious although a bit pricy for Php 315
The Beef Pot Roast (Php 395) arrived and the plating was a little disappointing. It’s braised beef with rosemary in brown sauce served with garlic rice which sounds like they’ll serve the dish with an actual pot with beef inside but imstead served it with a normal wide plate which didn’t look appealing. It might not have been an eye catcher but it certainly caught my taste buds. It was delicious.
The Legend (Php 495) arrived which was their own take of the juicy fried chicken served with crispy fries and corn on the cob. The meat was tender and when you pair it with their gravy, it certainly tastes legendary. It’s for sharing but you can order it for yourself with garlic rice for Php 285
They also have something new on their menu called adobo flakes. It’s worth checking out.
For desserts I tried a lot of their Gelatos. They divided their flavors into Signature and Premium. The Signatures are imported flavors while the latter was local.
Their Cookie Butter was good although the taste can get boring after awhile. The After 8 was minty and the Peanut Butter was nice.
My favorite Gelato has to be the Bailey’s. I like how they kept that alcohlic flavor – adding more of a punch to the gelato experience.
Overall this is a nice restaurant and you should definitely give it a try.
