When you think of Italian restaurant, one would probably not find that many options in Cebu. Among the options we have, they would either be too expensive or are just pizza parlors. However, this not so hidden Italian restaurant along Brgy Kamputhaw has earned my curiosity because of good feedback from people who have tried it here. So for my friends’ monthly get together, I just had to suggest that we come try it out.
Just a brief background, UrChoice Bistro Cafe is a restaurant that originated from Dipolog City. It opened its doors to the Cebuanos at Avelino Morales St, Brgy Kamputhaw (at the back of Harold’s hotel) just last 2018. Despite being new in the Cebu food scene, they have slowly earned the approval of the picky Cebuano palate. Once you dine here, you’ll know why 😉
The exterior of the restaurant resembles a house and once you go in, you’ll be greeted with a homey rustic ambiance. The restaurant has two floors with the second floor housing a small function room for your private events. The function room can accommodate 15-20pax with a Php7,000 consumable rate. They don’t serve buffet style just yet.
Now let’s talk about their menu. The restaurant offers a wide variety of choices including some Pinoy favorites such as the Sweet Spaghetti. They also have pizzas that are either cooked in trays or on the stone, pasta dishes, your choice of chicken, beef, pork or fish for the mains, salad, soup and sandwiches.
Our choices for dinner were the Salsiccia pizza, Mixed Seafood pasta, Polpetinne and Urchoice Ribs.
Among the dishes we’ve tried, the Polpetinne was my favorite. The meatballs were juicy and had just enough spices. Just by smelling this dish, you’ll already know how good it is. My next favorite would be the Salsiccia Pizza. Their homemade sausage topping is such a winner! The Mixed Seafood pasta was very delightful too. Honestly worth the price with the amount of seafood in each serving. For the Ribs, these were tender and cooked just right too.
Now I’m drooling just writing this blog entry.
Price range for the Pasta dishes are from Php 148 – 328, Pizzas from Php 150-460 and mains from Php 198-368. You may check out their menu from their facebook page below:
To be honest, this was my second time in UrChoice but I knew I just had to dine in here again because once will never be enough. Their food taste really good plus you’ll know that they don’t scrimp on their ingredients, that their food are heartily made and are priced reasonably.
I personally want people to try this place out because each dish is honestly satisfying plus their service was good too. So when the time comes that I’ll crave for good Italian food or if ever friends are looking for a restaurant recommendation, UrChoice Bistro will be my first on the list 😉
