One rainy Saturday we (Tri and Jov) decided to have lunch in one of the newest resto in Greenbelt 3 named Marciano, according to Tri it is owned by actor Marvin Agustin; Marciano is a very stylish restaurant that serves Italian-American cuisine. Ambiance looks contemporary, maybe because of dimmed lights and chandeliers and of course the curtains, but is not that formal.
Freebies: Long and thinly sliced crunchy crackers served in a cocktail glass with three kinds of dips.
For appetizer, we ordered for puffed mozzarella stick with smoked pomodoro and prosciutto for P299 - Hmmm, it taste like pizza hut's chessy stuffed crust, as in!
Rockefeller Angus. P308. Angus beef, spinach, onion and mozzarella. The pizza was just ok, It is a little chewy and a little crispy, but I might order different flavor next time... Well, frankly , the reason why we ordered this because it sounds cool... lol
Madison Avenue Sausage and Pepper pasta. P298. Normally the pasta they serve for this is Spag or linguine, obviously we changed the pasta to something else since I don't eat spag and Tri is not a big fan either... anyhow the pasta servings is huge, needless to say that it can be shared by 3-4 pax but, but you have to eat other dish. :D
Overall, the place is a nice hangout place with sophisticated ambiance and satisfactory service... Food wise? uhmmm lets just talk about the ambiance :p, maybe I'll try their other dish(hmmmm steak!) next time...
