La Vita Ristorante Italiano opens in The Podium Mall, Ortigas


Italian food, when fused with other ingredients to suit different tastes from different countries, gradually loses its identity. Fortunately, Chef Maurizio Gibillini was able to establish authentic and modern Italian cuisine on every plate. The thing that makes La Vita’s dishes stand out is the focus on high quality, seasonal, regional ingredients – and the simplicity of each recipe.


With the array of main ingredients such as tomatoes, mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, and pasta imported from Italy, La Vita Ristorante Italiano sure serves customers with an artisan mark. On the other hand, La Vita sources other food components locally, such as vegetables, fish, and clams, to guarantee its freshness.


Upon your visit to La Vita, it is best to try Carpaccio Di Polipo as the appetizer.


Pizza lovers should definitely try La Vita’s version of Pizza con Burrata Fresca with its soft, almost doughy fresh cream made of Italian cheese, perched in the middle of their pizza. It is best eaten while hot with the cheese broken in half and thoroughly spread on the pizza.


For fresh pasta made from scratch, try Chef Gibillini’s homemade Pappardelle alla Crema di Tartufo.


For the main course, Grilled Lamb served with a side of mixed vegetables and creamy mashed potatoes is one of the most recommended as La Vita prides itself of its tender and flavorful ensemble.


And while we are at it, be sure to save some room for La Vita’s Pannacotta Miele al Profumo di Tartufo, and Chocolate Mousse.


It has the right amount of sweetness to finish off a meal. It surely is the dessert you wouldn’t want to miss in La Vita. Europeans meditate on a beautiful bottle of wine after lunch or dinner and La Vita has a wide array of Italian wines best-paired with our pizza, pasta or steak.


Chef Gibillini includes family, food, passion, and love into one amalgamation of elements, the restaurant, with its 110 to 150 seating capacity ideal for gatherings of friends and families, embodies its name well as the chef christens it La Vita or The Life.The good news is that you don’t have to be willing to spend a fortune to eat well in La Vita having an average spend per head of Php700.
