More dining experiences beckon at City of Dreams Manila as new restaurants open at The Shops at the Boulevard. With the addition of Italian, Thai and Korean outlets and a popular local café, the integrated resort further steps up its evolving dining landscape with diverse gastronomic offers.
Adjacent to Jing Ting and Hidemasa, the newly opened Rossi Pizza is a casual trattoria that boasts of Roman-style pizza, bringing in the expertise of Italian pizza masters to Manila. The popular Roman-style pizza known for its scrocchiarella (light, crispy texture) characterizes Rossi’s dough, which consists of a mix of five different flours made with entirely Italian grains, water, olive oil, and salt, is matured in 18 hours of low temperature, following a recipe that is a result of intensive study of pizza in Italy. The highest quality imported ingredients, with sustainable and plant-based options complement the famed scrocchiarella crust. Rossi uses a purpose-built Moretti Forni Oven to consistently deliver authentic Roman-style pizza experience that diners will enjoy in a typical trattoria.
Among the chef’s recommendations are: Capricciosa pizza (with, prosciutto cotto, champignon, artichokes, and olives); the classic Margherita with basil; Quattro Formaggi (with parmesan, gorgonzola and taleggio cheeses). Vegetarians will delight in the Funghi (creamed mushrooms, roasted mushrooms, vegan TVP and arugula); and Vegana (eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms, and onion).
