Amare La Cucina in Baguio City
Cold weather and pizza normally do not mix, unless said pizza is hot off a brick oven. Baguio is a place with cold weather, so people would naturally want fresh pizza. This is where Amare La Cucina comes in.
UNA PIZZA. Check out this Italian resto in Baguio that serves brick fire oven pizzas.
Amare La Cucina, which Amare means “to love” and “la cucina” means “the kitchen”, started off as a humble family restaurant located inside the ancestral home of owner Edmark Bustos, later moving to the EGI Albergo Hotel along Villamor Drive. It’s the only pizzeria in Baguio that uses brick fire oven for baking so that the pizza retain more its natural flavor and freshness than when using an electric one. Also, it puts a nice char on your pizza especially if you like crusty ones. And this makes the restaurant more popular—serving some of the best Neapolitan pizzas and Italian food in the City of Pines.
