Their food and bestsellers
Their strong bestseller is the Roast Beef.
The 6-course meal at P1,499 is also a growing popular choice especially for couples going out for dinner. On special holidays or events the restaurant brings out this specialty. Since they opened their regular customers seem to love their Rosemary Chicken. The Chef’s Pizza and the El Diablo Pizza are also highly recommended as must-tries.
The pizza served in Bel Tavola is cooked using a wood-fired oven. This wood-fired pizza as well as the other one owned by the chef in his other restaurant has been imported directly from Italy. Their pasta meals are also very delicious and each meal comes with its own bread and special dip that many people swear is really tasty.
If you’re familiar with the TV series, The Sopranos, Chef Obrero cooks up the best Osso Buco in town. This is a beef and vegetable stew that can be consumed even without rice. Well, at least the Italians don’t need rice. Below are other delicious foods that the restaurant offers:
Bel Tavola is the only restaurant in the city that is selling Beer Buckets for only P498 and this includes one free pizza.
Aside from this the restaurant also serves a wide array of choices for beer and other hard liquor drinks.
Surprisingly, not many people know that they serve student and teacher meals at only P99 bucks. Each meal comes with its own rice, vegetables, and iced tea. In fact, most of the menu lineup is quite affordable.
The ambiance of the place is very clean and very, well, you guessed it, Italian. You get the feeling of being in one of those Rome sidewalk restaurants in Italy. On most days and especially the weekends the place tends to get filled up, more so during dinner time.
