After Strip, we walked a little bit to visit this french restaurant called Finestra.
The name Finestra means “window” in Italian. The executive chef is Salvatore de Vicentis.
Here he is in action.
He let us taste these 2 desserts:
Gelatto Samplers (from left-right): Homemade Nutella, Strawberry and Mascarpone Gelato
The Nutella Gelato has biscotti crumbs and candied walnuts. The Strawberry has real strawberry bits and pistachio biscotti, but my favorite among these 3 is the mascarpone gelato. It is not too sweet and yet it is so creamy.
Vanilla Panna Cotta with coffee cream and chocolate biscotti- this one is a good value for your money. It is a vanilla flavoured panna cotta made by simmering them together with the twist of coffee cream and chocolate biscotti.
These 2 desserts are available for P320.00 each.
I saw the prices on their menu and I was surprised that they offer authentic Italian food for a reasonable price. I hope we can go back here and try their pasta dishes and pizzas next time.
Here is Chef Salvatore, loving and taking photos of his own creations.
