CASA ITALIA | Ep. 1: Concept Behind an Authentically Italian Cafe in Manila!

Here's our first look before famous Gelato house from Singapore officially opens its door in manila.

How to Build a Resto: Casa Italia (Episode #1):


F&B Director, Casa Italia

Hello, I’m Donato. I’m from Rome, Italy, and I’m a chef from Casa Italia. I’m the chef that prepare all the bread, pizza, pasta, gelato, and all the delicious Italian food for Casa Italia.

Casa Italia, which means Italian House, started in Singapore as a gelato store. And slowly along the way, we started to make our own coffee—we roast our own coffee, and then after that we introduce as well the Italian food.

So we make our own bread and pizza, and all the pasta. So I will be here in Manila for conducting the training for the gelato training and for the food training. I will be here to meet all the suppliers because we want to make sure that all the ingredients that we use here are as good as the ones we’re using in Singapore as well—all the high quality ingredients. And then I will train the team here in Manila to follow step-by-step our recipes from the bread, to the homemade fresh pasta, and to all the gelato as well.
