DON VITO RISTORANTE ITALIANO: Philippine's Best Restaurants 2011

DON VITO RESTAURANTE, the restaurant wing of Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel became our life support during our stay in Boracay. Food is another aspect which makes a travel experience complete and satisfying.My

2nd post: MANDARIN SPA
and this 
3rd post: FOOD at Don Vito

.......cements what one of my readers remarked: "Di na ako lalabas ng hotel kapag ganito kaganda ang facilities :)"

This was probably one of the most filling food trip I ever had. We were served one dish after another. I was with a group of food bloggers so it was a tasting and learning experience for me. And yeah, DON VITO RESTORANTE ITALIANO was awarded Philippine's Best Restaurants 2011 by ASIATATLER dining. So there must be something in this place why the readers of the prestigious magazine picked Don Vito as one of the must try restaurants in Boracay.

Through the years, DON VITO RESTORANTE ITALIANO has become famous for its juicy seafood cuisine, freshly baked breads, finely cooked pasta, authentic Italian wood-fire brick oven baked pizzas, and authentic Italian gelato.

You can also enjoy the fusion of Western, Asian and Filipino dishes in this rustic Italian restaurant where the daily breakfast buffet is served. That on top of good interior and good overall feel when dining in the place.

Let me share to you through pictures the food we tried during our stay in Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel.
