Walking around Eastwood City on a Sunday afternoon, trying to find a place to eat an early dinner (because I had brunch), I accidentally came upon this new Italian restaurant – Galileo Enoteca Deli. According to them, this is the third branch of this Italian restaurant. They have one in Mandaluyong and another in Station 2 in Boracay. This new branch just opened last Friday, January 20, 2012.
Before you can go to the restaurant, you need to go up a flight of stairs and from this moment, you can already feel a transformation of where you are.
I was curious what Enoteca means and they said it means “wine library”. Apparently, the arrangement of the wines in this restaurant make me feel like I am inside a library. However, instead of books, wine bottles are on the cabinets.
Galileo Enoteca Deli is a great place to go to if you want to dine somewhere quiet and secluded from the hustle and bustle of the world outside. The dim lighting makes the ambiance romantic. And with Italian music on the background, it doesn’t feel like I am sitting in a restaurant in Quezon City. Dining in this restaurant, makes me feel that I was transported in Italy.
The waiters at Galileo Enoteca Deli are very nice. They immediately led us at our table and gave us the menu so we can order. They are always ready to serve your every request.
Since this is our first time to dine at Galileo Enoteca Deli, we asked what are their recommendations. We wanted pasta and pizza so we asked for their bestsellers for both dishes. While ordering, they served us with complementary Bread and Meats as they call it. It’s toast served with a side of pate.
They said their bestseller for pasta is the Penne Con Funghi Porcini & Tartufo Bianco (Php400). This is penne topped with chopped mushroom and truffle oil.
For the pizza, we got Quattro Formaggi (Php450). This is simply four-cheese pizza.
Since this is a wine library, I didn’t let this opportunity pass without trying a glass of wine. Since I prefer a sweet red wine, Mr. Waiter recommended a glass of Lambrusco Sparkling Red Wine (Php180). It’s sweet with a hint of acidity and berry taste. It’s perfect to wash down the pasta and pizza that I had.
So, if you are looking for a new place where you can go on a date, I highly recommend Galileo Enoteca Deli. Anyway, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.
