Sampling the fresh flavors of Italian cuisine at Tratorria Poggio Antico - An Awesome Secret Foodies Tour


A plate of Prosciutto con Melone (ham and melon on pizza crust), Crespella del Poggio (crepe stuffed with ham and cheese, and mushroom in truffle oil), Promodoro e mozarella crostini and assorted pizzetas (mozarella crostini), and Oyster sur pate dei fegato (oyster on liver pate).

Our second stop in the sneak preview of An Awesome Secret Foodies Tour in Tuscany, McKinley Hill, BGC was at the Trattoria Poggio Antico.

The rustic ambiance of the restaurant is very relaxing and homey for dining customers. Despite the sudden surge of big group of food bloggers entering the restaurant, these diners still enjoy the privacy of their meals in one corner of the resto.     
 

The place has a rustic interiors reminiscent of street side cafes in classic Italy. It is one-of-a-kind  of resto that combines passion for cooking with the love for travel.   The name of this rustic resto, Trattoria Poggio Antico,  is of Italian words that literally mean "old tavern on the knoll," which incidentally connote the hilly terrain of McKinley hill where you can find Tuscany Private Estate and the food strip. It is however, a misnomer to call the place as antico (old) being that everything here is new to us. Ah, the owner here is obviously trying to immortalize and share us his wonderful travel experiences in the rolling hills of Italy.

The restaurant is owned by Mr. Roland M. Lorilla whose inspiration to operate it originated from a memorable family vacation to the farms and meadows of Italy. 

The owner, Mr. Roland M. Lorilla, generously offers and serves foods and drinks to his dining gang of food bloggers in the sneak preview of An Awesome Secret Foodies Tour in Tuscany, McKinley Hill, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.   

He wanted to bring home with him the fresh flavors of Italian cuisine that urged him to hire a chef with 15 years of training and experience of Italian specialty and make sure to use all organic ingredients and homemade breads and pasta for his dining customers to enjoy with. 

The Trattoria Poggio Antico also served us free imported wines.
