Love the new interior and concept!
Il Ponticello serves Italian food. I remember eating pizzas and drowning ourselves with Azzuri! Today, it serves more than just that!
Sink into hug-me-all-night lounge seats and revel in DJ-spinning beats. Dig in and graze through Ponti's latest Italian greats - Crema di Tartufo pasta, Five-cheese pizza, Spicy Pork Belly Arrabiata and the signature White Pizza - Gorgonzola cream with Parma Ham and Arugula. End the treat with rave-worthy Cheesecake Panna Cotta, as-authentic-as-you-can-get Tiramisu, and must-try Vesuvius Budino chocolate lava cake. Buzz up the rest of the night with fun, fresh cocktails or dizzy yourself with our edited selection of wines and spirits. Take it how you want it, it's always a good time."
Fleur and I were the first ones to arrive. Excited? I wanted to be early so we can go home early din haha! Yes, lola na talaga! Hahaha! Our first nanay night out was actually a year in the making! And now that we've finally sent out, it was also Jenny's despedida. Huhu! I miss you na Jenny! We ordered drinks first while waiting for the other mommies to arrive.
Our drinks (clockwise): Ponti Spritz, Azzuri, Berry Bombshell
I love the Ponti Spritz!
Dunk and chomp! Bread plus olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Bianchetti (Crispy Tawilies) and Fried Mozzarella
I love love the Fried Mozzarrela!
And when the mommies started to arrive, we had our soup served na. The soup was Minestrone but it's not the usual Minestrone na tomato based.
Minestrone Siciliana which has Cannellini Beans, Mixed Root Vegetables, Fresh Pasta, Broth, Sun Dried Tomato Pesto
Vongole. I love their version of Vongole! It's not only clams but I like that it has veggies!
Amatriciana. It's Spaghetti, Onion, Tomato Sauce, Gradana Padano Pancetta
In between chismisan and catching up with the other SoMoms, the star of the night, the one we were all looking forward to was served. Porchetta!
Oh what beauty! It was tender , juicy and super duper yummeh. I like the Arugula Salad on the side.
Cholesterol! But it was so worth it!!
Our sweet ending that night: a sampler of desserts! There's Tiramisu, Cheesecake Panna Cotta and Vesuvius Budino AJ Cioccolato!
The SoMoms had so much fun that night! It's our first night out with alcohol involved heehee! SoMoms, let's do this at least once a month! It's the perfect me time and bonding with you girls. Although we're sad that Jenny had to leave again, we'll see you next year ha!
They are my family!
Nanays, san tayo next month? Heehee!
