  • Casetta del Divino Zelo in Silang Cavite: A Hidden Italian Restaurant Worth Visiting
  • Casetta del Divino Zelo is a quaint Italian restaurant hidden in the outskirts of Emilio Aguinaldo Highway, Cavite.

    Managed by the nuns from the Daughters of Divine Zeal, Casetta was established in 2012 as an effort to fund one of the congregation’s projects in supporting mothers in difficulty. 

    One can say that dining in Casetta is eating with a purpose bigger than merely satisfying an empty stomach.

    Sr. M. Isabella Carlone, the Italian nun who started the restaurant, shared her passion and knowledge for cooking and baking to the rest of the sisters before she retired.

    The nuns make sure that they preserve the authenticity of their food offerings by using genuine Italian ingredients and equipment. Additionally, the pasta and pizza dough that they use are all homemade.

    Meanwhile, the herbs and some of the fruits and vegetables they include in their dishes and drinks are grown in their garden.

    To start your treat, the bestsellers for their pasta include Lasagna (Php 295), Marinara (Php 295), and Ravioli (Php 295)The layers of lasagna and the chunky sauce are beyond words!

    Unlike those that you can buy in fast food stores, Casetta’s lasagna is firm yet cooked perfectly so you can enjoy the pasta, meat, and sauce in one bite.

    The Marinara, on the other hand, is also cooked al dente. Its pasta is topped with a generous serving of seafood and tossed with olive oil, which gives the dish a clean, crisp taste.

    Sprinkle a dash of chili flakes and parmesan cheese for an added layer of flavor!

    One can really taste the freshness of Casetta’s ravioli since it is almost entirely made from scratch–from the pasta to the spinach filling mixed with ricotta cheese.

    Casetta is also known for its brick-oven thin crust pizzas. When you visit, you should definitely try the 4-cheese, as well as the pepperoni and prosciutto variants.

    Further, you can buy souvenirs and gift products in Casetta to take home to your loved ones. Some of these, like the chili sauce, are made by the nuns themselves.

    If you’re looking for a quiet getaway (and good ol’ Italian food), travel down to Silang and visit Casetta del Divino Zelo.

    Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
    with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so
    I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated! https://tadalafili.com/

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely
    off topic but I had to tell someone! http://www.deinformedvoters.org/hydroxychloroquine
