Formerly La Bella Napoli, the well loved Italian bistro has been constantly adding more entrees to their menu to entice the Cebuanos (and international guests) even more with authentic Italian dishes. Now La Bella Pizza Bistro, they stay true to their promise of quality and only the best ingredients in every course they serve.
iLuvCebu team recently visited their 35-seater al fresco branch at The Gallery Mabolo and took the liberty of sampling the newest addition to La Bella Pizza Bistro’s carte.
Enjoyed a glass of Spritz (150php) as I watched the pizza dough being kneaded, topped and baked on the traditional wood fired-brick oven. Spritz is a wine-based cocktail made with wine, Aperol and soda water. A great aperitif to prepare me for the feast to come.
And yes, all pizza doughs are made fresh – moments after you place your order. All pizzas are then topped with premium ingredients and baked on classic wood fire- brick oven for less than 10 minutes. And for mozzarella addicts, the selection served with fresh mozzarella are must-try pizzas.
For our appetizer, we had Parmigiana di Melanzane (Price:300php). A lovely combination of baked tomato, mozzarella and fried eggplants that melts sumptuously together in your mouth. Yum!
And then a serving of pasta to share – tortelloni alla bolognese (320php). The pasta looks very similar with tortellinis but a bit larger. The fresh handmade ring-shaped pastas are stuffed with mixed meat in Bolognese sauce.
And oh boy, the delicious smell of freshly baked pizza as its been taken out of the oven! uuuhrg! (gets you real giddy! ^_^) Principessa had me at mozzarella (and arugula.. tehee)! Made with tomato, fresh buffalo mozzarella, parma ham and fresh arugula – it’s currently my new favorite pie at La bella Pizza and Bistro!
