When I travel to Cebu, the first place I go to eat is at Idea Italia. The food is great and you always want to go back, After the meal you can do your shopping and relax.

From order to service was about 20 Minutes. There were only 3 other people in the place. The sandwich was mostly bread. One micro thin slice of meat , a very thin slice of cheese, a little lettuce and tomato. nothing comes with the sandwich....More

Went there a couple of times for dinner, out of desperation (in Ayala mall you only find "plastic" food). Pasta was overcooked, pizza was crusty and with little topping. This is NOT how italian food should be.

We saw the reviews about this place and thought about giving it ago even though they were really bad. There was a piece of plastic in my pasta and mold on our "complimentary fresh piece of bread" Never again ...

We thought we could get quicker service because there was no customer, literally. It was about mid-afternoon, so I did not attribute the empty restaurant to anything about the quality of the food and service. But I was wrong. My son ordered lasagna and blueberry...More
