Create Pizza from Scratch at Fratini's

Fratini's isn't your ordinary Italian Restaurant.  Get ready for some authentic Italian food that would wet your appetite and leave you wanting for more. This is actually their first branch in the Philippines after several branches in Brunei. We were welcomed by the manager Riam Mangua and F & B manager Jojo. The restaurant has a very homey ambiance and courteous staff. Now let's see how the food was...

The Antipasto (P475) is loaded with 6 different types of appetizer.  There are so many choices that you don't know which one you will eat first. In fact, when I was pointing my fork in this dish, it kept on going into different directions. It had Crispy Prawns, Tomato Bruschetta, Stuffed Mushroom, Mussels Gratin, Cheese and Zucchini Salad and Ceasar Salad.  I thought the crispy prawns was the best among the six but the other bloggers thought differently.  Oh well, to each his/her own.

When I eat at a restaurant that I haven't eaten before, I would always make it a point to sample their house iced tea.  Fratini's has the wonderful Butterfly Iced Tea (P105) which is fresh orange juice on top of their house blend iced tea.  It turned out to be one of the best house iced tea versions I have ever tasted.

All 6 of us bloggers actually got to make our own pizza (P225 with 3 toppings) from scratch.  It was a fun experience to say the least.  I suddenly realized what F&B Manager Jojo meant when he asked us if we were ready to get our hands dirty. My pizza looked like it was used as a frisbee in a pick-up game but it wasn't bad for a beginner. I put bell pepper, onion and chicken in my pizza and called it the Piznatch for some reason. Since I was the one who made it, I would probably charge P990 because of the TF alone. Haha!

The Supreme Pizza (P495 12", P815 187") is actually half tomato sauce and half cream sauce.  The white half had mozzarella cheese, tuna, prawn tails, onion, chili, capsicum while the red half had tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, chicken breast, onion, capsicum and pineapple. I ended up liking the cream sauce half better than the tomato sauce half.

In case you can't decide which pasta dish to order, why not go for the Pasta Trio (P755)? It is a combination of their 3 best-selling pasta dishes. The Spaghetti Alla Pugliese, Fettuccine Carbonara and Lunguine al Fruiti di mare all showed why they were best-sellers.  I loved all of them especially the Lunguine al Fruiti di mare.  It is one pasta dish I could eat all day long.

Meat lovers, get ready to drop your jaw at the sight of the Mixed Grilled Meat (P1455). It has freshly grilled lamb, tenderloin and chicken breast in black pepper sauce accompanied by vegetables and mashed potatoes. I think it would have been better if this had mushroom sauce instead of black pepper sauce as there were times when I swallowed the pepper in full. I loved all the tender meat in this dish though and it is pretty much worth the price.

My favorite cake is Tiramisu so I got ecstatic when I saw their Tiramisu Tradizionale (P205). I loved their version a lot and it is something I would recommend to other Tiramisu lovers.

We ended the night with their Classico del pudding di choco (P175). It is their version of fresh home-made chocolate pudding and its warmness made it very tasty. Word of Advice: Don't wait until this one gets cold.
