Don Vito Ristorante Italiano, Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel

It's always nice when the resort you're billeted in has its own restaurant that can accommodate your dining needs. Don Vito Ristorante Italiano sits along the beachfront of Boat Station 2, right at the entrance of Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel.

This small but comfortable pizza haven dishes up a couple of delicious Italian classics and also has an extensive menu of Filipino food for tourists who want to experience some local cuisine.

Exotic Mandarin Salad, Php 366.

Tahong Al Horno, Php 305.

Golden Calamares Fritos, Php 220.

Penne Patriaca, Php 366.

Spaghetti Bolognese, Php 366.

Don Vito's Special Pizza, Php 427.

Quattro Stagioni Pizza, Php 506.

The place is also popular for its delectable gelato which is showcased in a booth just in front of the establishment.

Ferrero and Mascarpone Gelato, Php 100/two scoops.

Cheesecake and Strawberry Gelato.

Chocolate and Coffee Gelato. My favorite combination so far.

Tiramisu and Vanilla Gelato.

Each morning, a continental breakfast buffet is set up for hotel guests. Customers staying at other resorts may also dine in the privacy of Don Vito's for Php 350/person.

Salad Bar.

Soup and Bread.


Pancake and Pork & Beans.

Rice Noodles and Spanish-Style Sardines.

Chicken Adobo and Bacon.

Ham and Filipino Beef Steak.

Fried Bananas and Fresh Fruits.

Perfectly cooked omelette.

The next day, a totally different but just as satisfying variety of food is presented on the long table, something most restaurants do not usually do. For guests staying at the hotel for more than a few days, this is definitely going to be good news. I have experienced staying at a hotel for a whole week only to wake up to the same spread of breakfast buffet each day. Seriously, it was such an appetite killer. 


Pickled Unripe Papaya (Atsara).


Pancake and Skillet Fried Potatoes.
Vienna Sausage and Bacon.

Pork Tocino (Filipino Bacon) and Corned Beef.

Rice Noodles and Vinegar-Marinated Milkfish (Daing na Bangus).

Orange and Mango Juice.

Don Vito Ristorante Italiano is definitely your little slice of Italy along the tropical oasis of Boracay's White Beach. I would say that the food here is just average but the wide selection of choices, excellent service and the warm ambiance make for a truly unforgettable dining experience. 

We even can't help but take home a piece of Don Vito with us. Their honest-to-goodness brick-oven pizza has proven to be just too hard to resist.
