Shadie's birthday is always a signal for me that summer is here. As soon as her birthday comes, I know that the following weeks will be filled with sunshine, get-togethers, and vacations. For me, her birthday is the beginning of summer fun and exciting adventures.

She arrived from Indonesia last Thursday, so we met up for lunch at Italianni's in Boni High to celebrate her birthday. We spent the whole afternoon talking and laughing. Her actual birthday was the week before Holy Week. She was still in Jakarta then, still, E and I celebrated her birthday over pasta and pizza at Cafe 1771.

We had a grand time at Italianni's. Everything we ordered was a gastronomic delight.

Spinach and Artichoke Formaggio.
Serving Size: Abbondanza: Php 695, Regular: Php 475, Piccolo: Php 250.

This one is a must-try. Really glad E ordered this. The creamy blend of cheeses with spinach and artichoke was perfect with the toasted garlic bread. When CBB and I had quick lunch at Italianni's last weekend, I ordered this! Really good!

Caesar Salad. Serving Size: Lunch: Php 295, Regular: Php 605.

My ultimate favorite salad in Italianni's is their Sicilian Chicken. It has chicken breast, crispy romaine, mangoes, red grapes and pine nuts tossed in a creamy lemon-dijon dressing. I've never tried their Caesar salad before and I was surprised how delightfully delicious it was. It has foccacia croutons and big slices of bacon. Yum.

Sea Bass Mediterraneo. Php 795.

This angel hair pasta sauteed in butter, olive oil, black olives, capers and tomatoes, crowned with a pan-fried sea bass fillet is simple yet really light and utterly delicious. The bass was well-seasoned and the pasta, truly al dente!

Quatro Formaggio. Php 450.

An excellent mix of four cheeses -- romano, parmesan, mozzarella and gorgonzola. Good, deep flavor with all those cheeses. And the crust was perfect.

It goes without saying that their service is excellent. Italianni's is known for that. They are always attentive and fast.

My friends and I were quite happy with our food. We were happier to see each other. We lingered a bit and spent a lot of time catching up, laughing, and making travel plans. Shadie is back in Jakarta and is probably in the safe comforts of her beautiful home as I am typing this. And I miss her.
