I got invited by the cool dudes of MIS Association of Ateneo to give a talk on blog marketing in the KinEITics IT conference. It was nice to meet Lance, Lorenz, Francine and Mark in Friuli Trattoria in UP Village for our pre-meet before the conference. I’ve know a lot of restaurants in QC area but this is my first time to hear Fruili. Thanks to the MISA guys for suggesting Friuli to me. Fruili is a small Italian restaurant that is a favorite among Ateneo and UP foodies.

Tre Formaggi (P160). Another classic pizza of three cheeses – mozzarella, cheddar & blue. A treat for cheese lovers.

This is the best pizza of the house and you can order one for takeout because this is quite unique. The blue cheese taste stands out in this 3-cheese pizza with wheat bread crust.

Magherita (P160). Simply a combination of garlic and herbs smothered with 2 layers of mozzarella cheese topped with fresh tomatoes.

The magherita is done well and this is another bestseller for Fruili.

Spaghetti Meatsauce ( P 110). Beefy Tomato sauce served with spaghetti.
Lance recommended this meat sauce and Friuli is a master of simple pizza and pasta with simple ingredients cooked well. If there is one pasta you would want to try, this is it.

Putanesca (P120). Angel hair with our version of putanesca – made of tomatoes, capers, anchovies & olives.

I also love their simple putanesca pasta.

Carbonara (P115). White sauce with egg & bacon served with linguini

For some reason, this is the only dish that has some left overs… It speaks for the quality of this dish.
