When in the Philippines and you’re craving for Italian food, you know exactly where to go… Yes, in Don Henrico’s. Their Italian food suits Filipino palates perfectly. They’ve been in the industry for two decades now and continues to be on top of my list.
My husband and I had dinner in Don Henrico’s, Malate, Philippines on our 10th year Wedding Anniversary in 2010. I fancy Italian food at that time, because why not? It’s always nice to have pasta when on a romantic date. Don Henrico’s offers a wide range of Italian-American food choices; appetizer, salad, soup, calzone, pizza, pasta, chicken, triple gem, dessert, beverage and so much more. Prizes are very reasonable from P48.00 to P2,900, not bad at all.
In our visit to Don Henrico’s, Malate, these are the foods we ordered:
Calamari Fritti (P175.00)
Tender calamari lightly battered and fried to golden finish, served with marinara sauce.
Spaghetti Meatballs (P220.00)
Spaghetti in tomato sauce with minced garlic topped with beef meatballs
10″ Rustic Italian Pizza (P270.00)
Authentic Italian thin and crisp crust with charred edges with fresh, delicious toppings
Iced Tea (P70.00)
A cold tea served in a glass with ice.
plus P36.75 Service Charge, which gives a total of P777.33.
The ambience is fair to casual diners. It is homey, spacious and clean. They offer good Italian food in single or shared servings. Great value for your money. Also, they cater to your party needs.
Please take note that my husband and I were at Don Henrico’s in 2010, so these prices possibly have changed already. For the current menu list and prices please visit: Don Henrico’s Menu.
