Ok so I’m not sure if it’s Farfalla Pasta Bar or Farfalla Pasta & Bar. All I know is… they serve good food.

Farfalla is latest Italian restaurant in Davao City. And their unique offering is fresh pasta. But before we proceed to that, let me tell you about their awesome appetizers and soups.

Crostini

My favorite thing to order for appetizer is Crostini and Bruschetta (P295). Farfalla offers a list of toppings from which you can choose a maximum of four to have with your bread. I’ve tried Anchovy and Tomato, Smoked Salmon and Goat Cheese, Cream Cheese and Spinach, Olive Tapenade, and Parma Ham and Cheese. I loved the Olive Tapenade and the Cream Cheese and Spinach, but my favorite is the Anchovy and Tomato. The saltiness of the anchovy contrast well with the fresh, sour taste of the tomatoes.

Farfalla’s menu also has a Cold Cuts Platter (P435), a Cheese Platter (P380), and a Cold Cuts and Cheese Platter (P550), among others on their list of Antipasti or Appetizers. Note to self: must try the Cheese Platter.

I’ve tried their Onion Soup (P130) and their Cappuccino of Spinach and Carrot Cream Soup (P95). The cappuccino is definitely a winner, blending well both spinach and carrots accented with orange. Very refreshing, even if it’s a hot soup. They also have a Vichyssoise of Pesto on their menu, which I want to try soon.

Alfredo on Fresh Tagliatelle

The centerpiece, I think, is of course their fresh pasta which are spaghetti, tagliatelle, and ravioli. These may be ordered with sauces such as Pomodoro, Alfredo, Arabiatta, Pesto, Carbonara, and Gorgonzola. The Tagliatelle with Gorgonzola (P290) is one I’ll keep coming back for.

The menu also offers some very interesting Piatti Principale to choose from such as Garlic Roast Chicken (P245), Herb Roasted Lamb (P360), Spicy Mussels (P335), and Pernod Flamed Prawns (P550). I haven’t tried any though but I would love to have some of those Herb Roasted Lamb.

Farfalla also serves up a selection of pastries which will perfectly conclude your night of Italian food. I’ve had the Choco Lava cake and it’s to die for.

I’m looking forward to going back to Farfalla for more Italian goodness.

Farfalla Pasta Bar is located at the Victoria Plaza Compound, JP Laurel Avenue, Obrero, Davao City.
