Brunch at IL Ponticello

I’ve been turning down food reviews of late because I’m preparing for summer.  An invite  that includes my children is an exemption to the Project Sexy rule (wink, wink!). The invitation from Spanky Enriquez to try out brunch at IL Ponticello’s, with create-your-own-pizza for the kids, gave me an amnesia to stay away from food.

We actually almost didn't make it at IL Ponticello because John has Lego Collector Fair Meet-up and Rafael has basketball match with Ateneo. Plus, I didn't get to sleep the night before. But Julia and Juan were looking forward to making their own pizzas.

The entrance to IL Ponticello is not the usual door from the ground floor. I had to asked the guard thrice if that really is the way.  We were told to climb the stairs to the second floor. Juancho even said, "oh, it's creepy". But as soon as I pushed the door and saw the interiors, we were transported to a nice place! The beautiful interior is designed by one of the owners, Imee Magdaraog.

We were warmly greeted, and seated immediately by Steve (the owner).

Wine for me and juices for Julia and Juan  were served as soon as we were settled.

Bring your kids, 12 and below, at IL Ponticello.  Brunchissimo can't get any more fun with Create-Your-Own-Pizza for on;y P250!  Every Saturday brunch 10am-3pm.

Juancho finished his pizza because from his own words, "I made it the way I want it".

Imagine paying only P1,250 nett for this Tuscan Brunch Feast!

This homemade dry cured pancetta arrotalata with poached eggs and 
rosti potatoes filled me til the next day

  Truffled cheese and mushroom frittata
You get to choose 3 from their Tuscan brunch dessert selection. Julia and Juan both chose bestseller Cheesecake Caramel Panna Cotta. While I got their other bestseller - Tiramisu.

The whole IL Ponticello experience was a good one, 
adding to that was the presence of co-blogger Joy Felizardo and her daughter.
