Staying true to their Italian themes, 205 serves pizza just like their Breakfast Pizza (Php 450) that contains spinach, ricotta cheese, sausages, eggs, and tomato sauce. It’s perfect for when you want to have that meeting over breakfast or when you feel like having breakfast in the middle of the day.

Also try their Mushroom Risotto (Php 375)–the taste provides an entirely different take on the otherwise, classic Italian dish. The rice was cooked to perfection and is the ideal balance of creamy and starchy, which makes for an ideal risotto dish.

Sample their Mojito (Php 350) to switch up your regular alcohol. It’s a classic cocktail that never loses its flare–a mixture of rum, lime, mint, and sugar, making it the perfect drink after a long day at work.
