Our second day in El Nido was spent doing Tour A and with it came complimentary seafood lunch buffet right on the beach in one of the beautiful islands of El Nido. As a big seafood AND buffet lover, I stuffed myself silly with shrimps, mussels and fish during lunch even if I already engorged on some serious seafood fare the night before at Sea Jane Resto Bar. Having had as much seafoods as I wanted, I found myself craving for something different on our second night.
I realized I missed the comfort of sinking my teeth into some hot gooey cheese and the taste of herbs, tomatoes, mozzarella, ham and bacon fat all mixed up in my mouth. Good thing the very helpful front desk staff of Ipil Suites El Nido told us about a good restaurant nearby that serves really good pizza: Trattoria Altrove.
Trattoria Altrove serves Italian fare. It actually has a smaller branch just a few meters away called Altrove Express. Altrove Express serves brick oven pizza, panini and drinks but does not serve pasta. Pasta is served only in the bigger Trattoria Altrove.
As my husband Rupert, our 5-year-old daughter Zuri and I slowly made our way to Trattoria Altrove from Ipil Suites, while trying to catch some rare Pokemons, we passed by Altrove Express.
We decided to eat at Altrove Express instead of continuing on to Trattoria Altrove since we only wanted to order pizza, anyway. (One whole pizza plus pasta would have been too much food for just the three of us to finish.)
Altrove Express Menu
We ordered Quattro Stagioni with extra bacon. Our anticipation was on high as we watched the staff prepare the pizzas and smelled the aroma coming from the brick oven while we waited for our food.
We couldn’t wait to eat the pizza once it arrived. The smell was wonderful! Quattro Stagioni pizza has mushrooms, artichokes, ham and olives all for PHP 450. We ordered extra bacon toppings for PHP 70.
Oh my, the Quattro Stagioni pizza was a real treat! The extra bacon was definitely worth it! Altrove Express serves yummy pizza!! No wonder the foreigners in the restaurant loved their pizzas, too.
Don’t miss this restaurant during your El Nido trip. Their pizza is a must-try! Remember to eat the pizza while it’s still hot! 🙂
Altrove Express is located at El Nido town, near El Nido town beach.
