"Visit" Italy this June at Crimson Hotel Filinvest City Manila

Among all the destinations I dream of going to, Italy remains on top of my list. I've long been fascinated by this country after watching Only You, a film that stars Robert Downey Jr. and Marissa Tomei many years ago. Someday, I hope I could visit this country, particularly the area of Positano, and marvel first hand at the beautiful sights it has to offer.

For now, I am simply happy to be able to partake of a slice of Italy in the newest 5-star hotel located south of the Metro. Crimson Hotel Filinvest City Manila brings guests closer to the land of good food as it commemorates Italy's National Day this coming June 2

Ciao Italia is a month-long food festival that highlights authentic gourmet dishes as  prepared by Crimson's Hotel's Executive Chef Alessio Loddo who is a native of Italy's South West Sardinia. He is the ingenious mind behind the palatable creations in the hotel's Cafe Eight, whipping up Mediterranean flavors from Southern Europe to Middle Eastern regions.

I had the pleasure of joining other members of the media as we got to "test drive" a couple of days ago some of the dishes that promise to provide a feast for all senses. We were treated not only with good food but also with beautiful Italian music and a visually stunning collection of art pieces. 

Pasta and Main Dishes
In addition, there were hotel staff dressed in Italian festive costumes that added to the memorable experience. All these, we found out, were made possible thanks to Crimson's partnership with Il Mercante Di Venezia.

Desserts and Italian art pieces
Come to Crimson Hotel with your loved ones any day this June to celebrate and be delighted while you enjoy Italian cuisine for PhP1,000 nett for lunch and P1,400 nett for dinner. You may also want to avail of the "Buy One Get One" offer on Italian wines priced at P1,500 nett for Romio Sangiovese and Chardonnay.
