I know that Gino’s has been around Manila for a while. When they opened a branch in Salcedo Village in Makati, I was already working at BGC, so sad! So when I dropped by Serendra for a meal recently, I decided to finally dig into Gino’s Brick Oven Pizza that I’ve so been craving. :))
I’m sorry I don’t have photos of the facade of the resto (I actually forgot to take a photo, huhu, sorry!) but you’ll find the place right before going down the stairs to Gelatissimo and La Lola Churreria. Can’t miss it!
I actually love the interior of the restaurant. It has that earth-y, rust color and vibe that reminds you of cozy bungalow homes you find in Mexico but, of course, with a modern twist!
I especially love the geometric designs of the wooden ceiling lamps and the cute little metal plant buckets. 🙂
We didn’t order much because it was an early dinner and I was still full from merienda. But we did decide to go for the Meat pizza (Php515) which has tomato sauce, kesong puti (goat cheese), bacon, homemade sausages, salami milano, and parmesan.
Man, it was heaven! The crust has that well-done, slightly-burnt texture, so it’s definitely crispy. But the tomato sauce softens up the upper side of the pizza so it contrasts the crunch. Plus, I’m pretty sure they used really high-quality meat for this because when you bite into it, the full flavors of protein combined with the kesong puti is really just wow! 🙂
Maybe I’m exaggerating, LOL. But I really loved this pizza, I had three whole slices! :)) I’ll prolly go back for more but next time I’ll try adding their signature Spicy Honey sauce, haha! And maybe also sample their famous Nutella soup, I heard it’s good!
