For its grand opening, crowds gathered for the  8 php piccolo-sized gelato and coffee available from 4-8 pm.  What a great deal right?  No wonder the lines reached the corner even before 4 pm.

It has 40 all natural flavors from rich bitter sweet ones like Dark Truffle, classics like Vanilla, nutty like Pistachio, fruity ones like Kiwi and Cat Mountain King Durian Gelato made from Davao Durian (Really good.  It's not on display so ask for it), tea-infused like Green Tea or liquor-infused.  What I tried (you can ask for FREE sample tasting): Dark Truffle, Vanilla, Strawberry Cheesecake, Pistachio, Strawberry, Durian, Salted Caramel, After Eight and Green Tea.   I especially loved the Green TeaI noticed the Earl Grey too late.  (That's what happens when you get overwhelmed by all the flavors)  Next time, I shall try that!

Cat Mountain King Durian Gelato (195 php)
Cup is good... Waffle Cone is better...

Belgian Waffle (230 php)
Belgian Waffle is the best!  I wondered why it took a while.  But, when it was served, I instantly knew that it was freshly made so it was perfectly crunchy on the outer layer and so soft as you bite through. This is one of the best I've tried!  You can choose 2 gelato flavors as a topping.

Coffee Bar

Cappuccino Medio (130 php)

Affogato Solo (175 php) (My friend's Ted's drink.  He says it's strong just the way he likes it)
Enjoy your coffee hot or cold in 3 sizes.  There are also other options like the Gelato Frappe which as I've observed is their version of a Milkshake.

Chef Donato Mazzola, who currently serves as the restaurant’s F&B director gave us a sample of his passion pizzas which are not available on the regular menu.  He told us that he is from Rome but here for 2 week before going back to Singapore.

The Roasted Chicken with Potatoes is one of the juiciest you'll encounter.  And, for something lighter the Fish Fillet in Siciliana Sauce (they use dory fish) is a great choice.
