This is a long overdue post for a meal a thoroughly enjoyed not just because of the food but also because of the company. This was the first time the foodie club was going out of town and someone suggested we try out Amoroma on the way to Punta Fuego. The place is very near the road from Sta. Rosa, with parking way down back of the restaurant with quite a steep incline.
From the parking lot there’s a small door leading up to the main dining area.
The main dining area looks like something I would expect an Italian restaurant to look like from the movies. Checked tablecloths matched with dark wooden furniture with suitably dressed servers complete the image. No air conditioning to get more of Tagaytay’s fresh air, with ceiling fans taking the cudgels of cooling in warmer occasions. There’s even some nostalgic stained lamps which I used to see in Shakey’s.
Getting settled with quickly ordered to get on with our trip since everyone was quite excited already. A basket of complimentary bread was laid out with the usual olive oil and herb dipping.
With a wood fired oven beckoning us, we definitely had to order pizzas, which we decided to share.
Prosciutto (P415). One of Irene’s favorite smoked meats, topped on a slightly crusty thin pizza with a perfect blend of cheese and tomato sauce. You could really taste the tomatoes in the sauce.
Bianca (P 315). A different pizza, using cream sauce instead of the usual tomato sauce but of course with lots of cheese to the delight of the cheese lovers in our group. Each slice of pizza had a piece of salami on top
Scampi Risotto (P390). We were surprised to see 3 large prawns on top of a bed of risotto. The seafood added a deep flavor to the tomato risotto. The risotto was cooked perfectly al dente, with still a little bite in the center, just the way we like it.
Marinara Fettucine. I forgot who ordered this but I really liked the bite of the fresh pasta that Amoroma uses. The freshness of the pasta and other ingredients make for a delightful dish.
Everything we had that lunch was great, from the food to the ambiance and the service. This is definitely going to be one of stops anytime we’re in Tagaytay. There’s even outside tables to enjoy your food with more fresh air, we declined that since it was super windy that day.
