Gino’s Brick Oven Pizza just opened a new branch in Serendra and we wasted no time in checking it out. In fact, they are still on soft opening but we just couldn’t wait any longer to get another taste of their infamous buratta.

For starters, we had an order of their Buratta Caprese (P355) which had one huge buratta, halved cherry tomatoes, a bed of pesto on the bottom, basil leaves, and all were drizzled in olive oil. This is best eaten with their warm bread rolls.

We ordered two pasta dishes to share among four of us – Salted Egg (P190) and Stuffed Chicken (P355). The Salted Egg Pasta has fettuccini, bacon, salted egg, cream and topped with grated parmesan cheese. It was good but was a little too rich for my taste so I asked for a slice of lemon to cut the richness. After a good drizzle of fresh lemon juice, I easily finished my portion which was creamy and salty and delicious all at the same time. The Stuffed Chicken Pasta on the other hand comes with aglio olio spaghetti, a roll of chicken breast stuffed with ground pork and coated in cream sauce. The best part of this dish was the tasty chicken roll with ground beef inside. If you are ordering this dish, make sure you have time to spare because it takes around 15-20 mins to cook. But if you ask me, it is well worth the wait.

For our pizza, we got the SMEGG (P420). It is topped with their homemade sausage, mushroom, eggs, gouda and cream. I enjoyed my slices with a drizzling of their Spicy Honey and some drops of tabasco.

To down all these carbs with, we also ordered a pitcher of their Iced Tea (P120). I liked it because it did not taste like commercial powdered iced tea mix.

All in all, I loved my second time at Gino’s Brick Oven Pizza. I would definitely go back just for the buratta alone.

I never really liked Greenwich. If I were to choose from a dozen or so fastfood chains, Greenwich would probably be my last pick. Not that their food is grossly unpalatable. It’s just too darn forgettable. For me, there is nothing special from this place.

But I still try it out from time to time, just in case I might change my opinion on their food. But alas! Up to this day, I am not impressed by the quality nor quantity of their food. But if you’re looking for a cheap yet filling Italian-ish meal, they might just do. This one particular time, we availed of their group meal which had three servings of lasagna, a Hawaiian pizza and three glasses of beverage of your choice – all for just P399. A good enough deal, yes?
