Amare by Chef Chris
From the man behind the popular C’ Italian Dining in Clark and My Kitchen by Chef Chris in Paco, Manila, Chef Chris Locher has made the Philippines his home for over 25 years.
A Swiss nationality who fell in love with the Philippines and its cuisines has made Amare, which means “beloved”, a masterpiece to showcase his passion and love for food, located in the heart of the Culinary Capital of the Philippines, Pampanga.

Serving a fusion of Italian-Mediterranean cuisines, Chef Chris’s signature invention, Rolliza, also known as the famous, “Panizza”, has made its new home here at Amare as it has been everyone’s favorite back at C’s Italian Dining.
One well-loved Rolliza is the Amare with prosciutto de parma, sun-dried figs, and tomato plus gorgonzola cheese. You can choose either the full size or mini serving. Just simply add the alfalfa sprouts and arugula and finish it off with chili oil before rolling for a little spice in every bite.
Rolliza Amare- Full Size: Php 790 Mini: Php 410
For such a strong starting appetizer, we recommend you to try their Spaghetti Therese for the main course. It’s a salmon fillet, with shrimp in virgin olive oil enticed with anchovies, rapini, green asparagus, and mushroom slices. This unique Italian pasta will definitely give your tongues a different blend of Italian taste.
You can pair this off with the main course of pork like their Salsiccia All Uva, which actually is the chef’s special. It’s a homemade pork dolce sausage cooked in light wine sauce with grapes, shallots, and leek served on parmesan polenta.

Follow it up with the Risotto Cato, which has wagyu ox-tongue slices with tomatoes, kalamata olives, capers, and fresh herbs perfected with parmesan and butter topped with rapini. Cap off the meal with their selection of wines to enjoy an Italian fine dining.
