For a majority of people around the world, Italy is synonymous with pasta, pizza and wine. Well, they are not wrong. As famous as Italy is for its master artists like Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, it's also equally well known for its delicious cuisine. 

So, when in Italy, plunge yourself into the mouthwatering foods because you don’t get Italian food like they make in Italy. Thankfully, you don't have to go that far because here in the Philippines, there are only a number of restaurants that serve authentic Italian dishes, this is where Amici comes in offering flavorful Italian dishes that is perfect for big groups or a date.

During the media launch of the newest dishes of Amici, Bloggers got the chance to have a taste of Italy on a bright and sunny afternoon at their branch in Ayala Triangle.

My ultimate favorites were the Italian Burger, Pasta Nero and the Bistecca Striploin Steak, in fact all the new dishes were delicious, hearty and sure to satisfy any cravings, truly a must-try but the best part is the dessert.
