Papermoon in Makati: An Italian restaurant that offers a view of city skyline
Take a trip back to memory lane on the top floor of the luxury condominium in Century City where Papermoon Manila is located. Founded in Milan, Italy, Papermoon Manila holds 40 years of history. Edi Tekeli, a former franchisee of fashion brands “Guess” and “Mango” from Turkey opened the Philippine franchise. Papermoon Manila serves Italian food and ensures quality by supervising their Italian Chefs service.

The interiors were personally picked by Mr. Tekeli, decorating the restaurants with old photographs of past Hollywood celebrities as he wanted to create a signature style. He has also incorporated elements of the Philippines such as walls made from coconut shells and rattan chairs.
Papermoon’s dishes, such as their pizza and pasta, are all homemade. They only use Italian flour. “We use the kiln made from Italy; it’s the the best stone kiln in Italy,” says Tekeli. Along with his business partner Joey Antonio, they wanted an authentic Italian restaurant stationed in Manila.
The restaurant offers a cigar room for smokers and a VIP room for people who want privacy. Their brick oven in the dining area is from North Milan that is seen in the dining room. Apart from famous Italian fares such as pizza and pasta, there are many to choose from at Papermoon.
