Once in a while, my mom would crave for something Italian and to her dismay not a single Italian restaurant here in Manila could satisfy her craving as much as Buon Giorno could. Her request is simple: fresh ingredients, balanced flavor, top quality meat. Our favorite is the Smoked Salmon with Mango Dill Sauce and their Risotto. We were so happy when Buon Giorno opened their first branch in Metro Manila along Shaw Boulevard. Sadly though, the ambiance there just doesn't match with that of their Tagaytay branch and we only were able to visit it twice before it closed down.
I'm glad Buon Giorno didn't give up, they re-opened again this time inside the Rockwell Business Center in Ortigas (beside Medical City) which is quite near for us. Mom was so happy when I told her the news and we're already planning to visit them soon...
...well, I went ahead and visited Buon Giorno's new branch upon receiving an invite last week. Sorry Mommy, hungry tummy couldn't wait! :)
Buon Giorno prepared a feast! We started off with a bowl of Zuppa di zucca arrosto (Php. 140) otherwise known as Pumpkin soup. I'm such a fan of pumpkin soup despite my mom telling me its loaded with calories. Turning a blind eye just this once I happily slurped my creamy pumpkin soup which had sesame seeds and croutons. Yum!
