Al Dente Ris­torante Ital­iano

Philippine Tatler Best Restaurants - - ITALIAN -

WHY GO

While Iloilo is more known for its lo­cal seafood, this long­stand­ing restau­rant in the iconic Sara­bia Manor Ho­tel brings the flavours of Italy to the ta­ble in­stead.

TATLER TIPS

Come in early so you will still have time to en­joy a bot­tle of wine or a warm cup of French-pressed brewed cof­fee while catch­ing up with a com­pan­ion. The grilled chicken Cae­sar salad is a great starter, with its ap­petis­ing chicken strips, ca­pers, and crou­tons. If you are try­ing to be good, opt for the wal­nut-crusted fish fil­let with cau­li­flower purée. How­ever, if you are game to load up on red meat, have the slow-cooked beef brisket— the braised bone-in flank is per­fect with gar­lic rice. Cap the meal off with the rich but­ter­cream sans ri­val— not an im­per­a­tive but a de­li­cious op­tion.
