                    Even though tomato sauce is my waterloo (hyper acidity), I find myself unable to resist the charms of Italian food. I'm a huge fan of Pizza, pasta and the like. Quite surprisingly, I don't have very many posts on Italian food.. Something I must rectify immediately. Although our blog's most recent Italian food post was one that Rina enjoyed very much.. Lomabardi's Authentic Italian. 

            Already having established itself with their first branch at Robinson's Magnolia, Rina and I (Although I was two hours late.. darn day job.. got bills to pay) joined a small gathering of bloggers that were invited to check out their newly opened branch at the New Wing of Shangrila Mall. 

         We had a wonderful time, and now I want to give one lucky reader a chance to try what Lombardi's has to offer! 

             Lombardi's is the brainchild of Chef Davide Lombardi, a Chef raised in Milan and took his authentic Italian recipes to our shores. Chef Lombardi is also an instructor in the renowned Center for Culinary Arts. So in layman's terms.. The dude knows his stuff. 


          The Pizza Aisalumi (P500) is a tomato based pizza, with mozzarella cheese, and a number of Italian hams such as prosciutto, mortadella, salame milano, and coppa.

The Quattro Formaggi Pizza (P420)

The Spaghetti Frutti De Mare (P400)
 a seafood pasta that consists of prawns, clams, mussels, and squid. 

The Lasagne Della Casa (P310) 
lasagna with stewed tomato, layered with Bolognese sauce and then creamy béchamel sauce.

          Seen enough? Here's your chance to visit Lombardi's Authentic Italian, armed with a P1,000 GC! Just follow the instructions on Rafflecopter!
