C' Italian Dining

Halfway thru SCTEX on our way home from a relaxing weekend at Thunderbird Resort Poro Point, I was asked if I wanted to have an early dinner somewhere in Clark, Pampanga. First thing to come to mind is C' Italian Dining which from what I've read makes the best panizza in the whole country!

We got to C' Italian just in time for the 6pm dinner opening. I was worrying they might not allow me to go inside since I was wearing shorts and sandals but thank goodness they're not strict with the dress code.

As soon as we entered, I immediately noticed the autographed plates with messages of love and praises courtesy of the restaurant's patrons adorning the wall of the reception area.

One of the waitresses guided us to the dining room which for some strange reason, reminds me of the Volturi Castle in the Twilight movie.

Where's Edward?

Paintings by local artists hanging on the walls are for sale.

A basket of warm home-made bread was delivered to our table a couple of minutes after we were seated.

It comes with a cup of pesto-cheese-olive-oil dip.

I was made to choose which Panizza to order and since I was feeling rich that day, I ordered Panizza Millionario *wink* which is also one of Chef Chris Locher's recommendations.

Panizza is a rectangular thin crust pizza cut horizontally and served with arugula and alfalfa sprouts. Panizza Millionario has five types of cheese, herbs, truffle oil, sun-dried tomato, ham and shrimp.

Panizza Millionario - Php845.00

One order is good enough to share.

How to eat the panizza:

1. Place a slice of the panizza in your plate.

2. As a personal preference, I place the arugula first then loads of alfalfa sprouts on top of it.

3. Roll the panizza and tadaaa!

If you like Yellow Cab's Dear Darla, there's no way you won't fall in love with C' Italian's Panizza! I now understand why people travel all the way to Clark just to have a taste of the finest panizza ever to hit the ovens. Nothing beats authentic, fresh and perfectly baked goodness!

I am now a certified C' Italian convert.
