VENETO PIZZERIA RISTORANTE
SM CITY CEBU
“Ever since high school, A Veneto Pizzeria Ristorante (Veneto for short) has been a go-to birthday place for us high school students then living near its area along Visayas Ave. in Quezon City. They’re known for their delectable Italian pizza and pasta dishes and the fact that you don’t need to spend that much to fill up on delicious carbs. Their pizzas are big, thin, and packed with toppings. They also have a good number of choices for their signature tomato-based and oil-based pastas. Side dishes like their soups, sandwiches, and fried appetizers like chicken wings are also must-try items. They recently opened up a branch in SM Cebu and I felt happy that there’s some comfort food for a Manilenyo like me here in the metro. Although they have not yet enjoyed the success of their Metro Manila branches, for a restaurant that gives you your money’s worth with good Italianstyle dishes, I think it’s definitely worth checking out.”

“For two weeks now, my health condition has led me to try and taste more of veggies and less of oily food. These two big pieces of Fresh Lumpia right here’s definitely a good try! Through the years, I have been a huge fan of Fresh Lumpia recipes, but it is just this year that I have actually decided to include it with my daily healthy meals, since it would be quite unhealthy for me to turn back to the food selections that I am used to. You can actually notice the sauce which accompanies it with peanut toppings being tweaked from its typical taste that we Filipinos normally enjoy. You can technically sense it being flavorful and healthy enough for you to love. Though most of vegetarians out there could attest that the vegetable filling is rightfully delicious, but it is the mixture of the sauce that you couldn’t actually resist. As vegetarians — by choice — and even for the foodies, this Fresh Lumpia and more of the Live Life Veggie Restaurant will surely make you chase their lovely variety of healthy dish.”
