The Bistro Ravioli’s location is good with an ample amount of foot traffic. It is one place that you will always bump into when in MOA. It is a modern bistro with a minimalist touch. I specially love the writings on the walls with quotes from Bellini, Sophia Loren and Julia Child. Exceptional is the good service geared towards customer satisfaction.
MARGHERITA – Php 280 – My very basic favourite pizza and with so much Margherita consumed in my lifetime … I know a good one at my 1st bite. For its price, I can get something better. Most of the time, it is in the crust … it is my pizza core. If it fails there … it will have a hard time recovering. Because it is brick oven-baked … they didn’t manage to burn it like some of the brick oven-baked pizza I know.
SAUSAGE RAGU – Php 390 – they used fettuccine (rolled flat then cut in 6.5 mm) Most of the noodles where smothered with the red pasta sauce. There is a generous amount of sausage and greens that usually go with your typical ragu. It was recommended by the server, I wonder why.
Trivia: According to the food dictionary Ragu is a staple of northern Italy’s Bologna. It is a meat sauce that is typically served with pasta. Though different than the French ragout both are derived from the verb ragoûter , which means “to stimulate the appetite.” Ragu usually contains ground beef, tomatoes, onions, celery, carrots, white wine and seasonings.
SPINACH AND FETA CHEESE IN PASTA SAUCE RAVIOLI – Php 210 – These are spinach and feta cheese filled pasta with sauce. Ravioli should indeed be made from fresh pasta … I can’t think of any better way. The price got in the way. To be able to serve it that way, the amount of filling was sacrificed. Losing what is essential.
Trivia: Ravioli is a typical Italian filled pasta. Mentions of Ravioli in history dates back in the 14th century in Venice and Tuscany.
It will always be a price war in this arena. They made it affordable and it equated with the taste. With the emergence of the many “Italian” Restaurants … there will be a handful that can combine authenticity and taste. Much to my chagrin, it is indeed just a handful.
