Bolognese Tagliatelle


at Va Bene Pasta Deli

(Bonifacio High Street – Central Square)

-BGC, Taguig, Manila, Philippines –

with the Boys

Located on the same floor as Bonifacio High Street Cinema – great for a meal before or after a movie – tonight, we watched the dumbest movie that I have ever had to endure in a movie theater: “Sherlock Gnomes,” which IZ claims to have enjoyed.

Va Bene Pasta Deli is an Italian restaurant.  Specializes in hand-made pasta.


The food was great across the board.  Any one of the dishes would’ve been a fine representative for tonight’s post.

In particular, the tagliatelle was amazing.  Upon first bite, my initial reaction: “Ah, this is how pasta should taste” – perfectly toothsome, chewy, succulent, nutty.  The sauce was perfectly balanced, rich and meaty.  Possibly the best pasta dish with meat sauce that I have ever experienced.
