Weekend Food Tripping at: Focaccia + Lorys Hair Cream 5 Winners

For my friend's Despedida Soltera party, we gave her a surprise party at Focaccia, at The Fort.  I have always wanted to give this restaurant a try as I've read good reviews about their Pazzo Rollo.  How did my tummy find it after dining in here?  Worth to go back to this place?

Spinach and Artichoke Formaggio
served with focaccia bread
Love this, I actually downed myself with 3 focaccia bread!

Arugula Shrimp Salad
Arugula, onion and shrimps served with lemon vinaigrette
I love salad but I'm not a fan of this, the leaves are quite bitter for my taste

Calamari Fritti
Fried calamari served with aioli sauce
Aioli sauce is also known as Garlic sauce.  This appetizer is love!

Bruschetta con Pomodoro
Toasted ciabatta bread (my favorite) topped with tomato, 
sundried tomato, basic and fresh mozzarella
This is super filling!  But tastes great.  Love the crunchy ciabatta bread

Meatballs Pasta
Blend of pork, beef, regato and herbs in tomato sauce
I am not a fan of spaghetti meatballs but I actually love this!  
Probably the mix of pork and beef made this dish unique to taste.

Scampi Victoria
Lemon olive oil based pasta with sauteed shrimps and basil herb
I took a taste of this and another unique dish! I did not eat a lot because of the shrimps 
but this is a nice olive oil based pasta for a different taste in the mouth!

Prosciutto Tartufo
Truffled cream sauce with prosciutto and mushroom slices
I am a fan of cream based pasta and this is no exception!

Pazzo Rollo
The restaurant's specialty!
Gambini - consists of ham, bacon, salami and cheese sauce
Capellini - shrimp, garlic and pesto sauce
Sette Formaggi - fetta, mozarella, cheddar, romano, gorgonzola, ricotta, cream cheese

Chicken Pancetta
Pancetta slices and cheese wrapped in chicken roasted in olive oil served on farfalle noodles
Love the mini potatoes that goes with this dish!

Red Iced Tea

Wonderful experience dining in this restaurant, experience something unique and different.  Such a nice dining place and the ambiance of the restaurant is really great for friends, families and even for couples on a date!  Great service and parking space is quite far though!

I have to add that the restaurant also serves Angelati Italia Gelato for Php120.00 (approx $4.00) per scoop.
