QIZIA CAFE


You wouldn't miss this Italian cafeteria because it is just beside (or behind?) SDS Medical center in Marikina. Complete address is indicated at the end of this post. :)


If you are looking for another quick Italian fix, you can always go to Qizia (read as "keesha") Cafe. Word of advice though, this is definitely NOT the place for authentic Italian food. The cuisine is Italian, the taste is for the Filipino palate. But still, we're talking about value for your money, which Qizia offers its clients. The food tastes good for the price on the bill. :)


That's my bag, hehehe! Don't expect too much on service. Like I mentioned, this is a cafeteria, not a restaurant. When you arrive, you can go straight to the counter and order. You can still ask assistance from the waiters, of course. Glasses of water, baby chairs, paper bags for leftovers, etc.

So what did we order?!

QIZIA SPECIAL PIZZA

We ordered the Qizia Special Pizza. It's much like the Manager's Choice of Shakey's. I love the thin crust of their pizza here. :)

SEAFOOD PIZZA

Why order only one pizza when you can order two, right? I like how the seafood pizza tasted, it's a bit spicy and the flavor of the shrimp stood out.

CHOCOLATE SHAKE

I sip on this from time to time to recover from the spicy and fishy tastes. I loved the froth, hehe!

SPICY SEAFOOD PASTA

The pasta was cooked al dente, which is always what I prefer. The dish has this curry-taste to it, I like it. Quite unique. :)


For all of these, we only paid a little less than 500 pesos. Okay let's round it up to 500, haha! You see?! You can even have your date here. 500 pesos: I was highlighting the value for your money + taste earlier, right? (We weren't able to try their pastries though, and I heard they serve really good coffee!)

  12. Food is good, no doubt about it. BUT the waiters are lousy and annoying. A lady seated outside was waving her hand and was trying to call the waiter inside. The waiter pretended that he did not see the lady and when the other waiter called his attention telling him that he was being called he only said "hayaan mo sya" (sya pertaining to the lady outside). Soooo RUDE!!!! I heard him say those words coz we were seated inside and was near them. With so many great restaurants around, I don't want to go back to this restaurant anymore.
