GINO's BRICK OVEN PIZZA MAKATI: Burrata, Homemade Pasta, Neapolitan Pizza with Spicy Honey! @jutey_boy
GINO's BRICK OVEN PIZZA is a Neapolitan-style Pizzeria originally from Katipunan, by passionate Filipino food entreprenuers Jutes & Cello Templo (of Cello's Donuts fame). The name of the resto is a tribute to their son, Gino.
The Makati branch is the Gino's 2.0 version. The taste is so authentic, some people think it's owned by Italians.
We loved their Burratta, homemade pasta, and Neapolitan pizza! Check out Gino's...
The Burrata is so good because they make it themselves, with mozzarella skin, cream, and kesong puti from the Philippine Carabao Institute in Los Baños.
It has a creamy but light cheese taste and goes well with the salad, or even the Bolognese, as some foodies recommend.
✮ Salted Egg Pasta (P180). Fettucine, Bacon, Salted Egg, Cream, Parmesan.
Love the homemade taste of the fettucine -- chewy and cooked al dente. The bacon-salted egg combination is very addicting! :)
Even this simple pasta is good, with thick and chewy homemade spaghetti noodles and just the right tomato taste (not too sweet, not too maasim).
The pizzas are really good, too -- soft with just the right crisp, and cooked quickly in a brick oven.
All their juices are fresh. We love the Dalandan in particular!
TIP: You can bring your own wine and the first bottle is free of corkage. :)
Overall, we love GINO's for its impressive food quality and great neighborhood resto ambiance!
Make sure to order the Burrata, the Salted Egg Pasta, and the SMEGG Pizza, and reserve the Nutella Soup for dessert in advance. Budget at P400/person.
Best to make reservations during peak hours and bring your own wine. :)
