Save The Date: Aria Cucina Italiana

When one says ARIA, there's only one place that comes to mind: Aria Boracay.

September 2011

ARIA Cucina Italiana is a modern Italian restaurant that has a menu inspired by the coastal regions of the Mediterranean. It elevated the standards of restaurant designs in Boracay with its stylishly modern, yet tropical, interiors and cozy ambiance. Here you can dine beneath the stars or enjoy your cocktails at the outdoor bar, feeling sand between your toes.

Aria's charm, to me at least, never gets old. It's still the same haven by the beach I got to first try with J 5 years ago (note to self: must go on a beach vacay with the girls soon!). I think I've dined at least once in Aria on every Boracay trip I've had since 2007.

J with our Caesar salad and Salsiccia pizza

My favourite wood fire oven-baked pizzas are still the same:

Italian sausage, tomato sauce and mozzarella

tomato sauce, mozzarella and parma ham

I received a photo in the mail just minutes ago that quite literally (excuse me) made me drool:

fresh cherry tomatoes, artichokes, farmers ham, mushroom, kalamata olives and mozzarella

Thank heavens it wouldn't cost me a round trip ticket to Boracay to get a piece of that gorgeous pizza because Aria Cucina Italiana's opening its doors in the heart of Bonifacio Global City on 28 January 2012. On top of that, they're running an equally (if not more) sumptuous contest in Facebook that you must check out. What's at stake? One lucky winner will win a trip for two (2) to Boracay plus Aria gift certificates!
