Father's Day at Italianni's plus some other restos

 We haven't been to Italianni's in quite a while but thanks to a gift certificate from Twinx, we found the perfect opportunity to use it ---Father's Day!

We always order the spinach and artichoke dip (P525).

 Incidentally, a gift certificate for this dish was also what led us to Italianni's the first time we went here! That was sometime in 2000 or 2001, in its original location, before it moved to Greenbelt 2.
We were given the complimentary bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar to which Jon asked "Is this for free?" We've been coming back ever since.
Caesar's salad for sharing (P450) 

They've changed the plating so much so that the meals couldn't quite fit out table for four. Mama had to distribute the contents of each dish just so we could have room for the next dish.
Detail: a sign that says the salad is organic

We also had the Farmer's Bundle for P1345 which consisted of:

Baby back ribs--quite tasty and fall-off-the-bone soft;

herbed chicken--- nothing special, just ok;

and the pasta in olive oil and garlic. good, and just a wee bit spicy.  

Mama also ordered the Seafood and vegetables (P450)  which has assorted cuts of fish, mussels and clamsin white wine. Very nice, but made even better by the rice that came with it (So Filipino!)
We also had bottomless/unlimited servings of iced tea and dalandan juice at P105 each.

All in all, the bill came up to P2,365 after they deducted the gift certificate and the senior citizen's discount. Still quite pricey for our taste. The food is still very good  but if you want value for money, check out North Park. It's a chinese reataurant that serves top-notch food at reasonable prices

Shanghai chicken (P283)

Sweet and sour pork (256)

Chow mein (P300)

Ampalaya con carne (Bitter gourd and beef) P234

 No picture of the yang chow fried rice and delicious jasmine rice
The total bill for a group of 5 was just a little above P2,000.

Meanwhile, if you want dessert, Nathaniel's delicious buko pandan is now available in Alabang! 
We went there recently to buy dessert and also try out their merienda meals
Sadly, their non-specialty items are disappointing
The lasagna was good enough, very cheesy (P100)

 But the pancit guisado (P70) and miki bihon were very salty! Maybe so customers would order drinks or their puto pao?
Miki-bihon (P70)

Luckily, my lomi was quite good  but pricey at P95. 

My advice, stick to the buko pandan and maybe try their siomai. The buko pandan juice at P50 is also quite refreshing.
