Dinner at Cafe Lidia

Hubby and I love to eat. On our anniversary, we had dinner at Cafe Lidia in Marikina. He actually planned for it, that's why he brought me to Eastwood so that our travel from Libis to Marikina will be a short distance only.
Cafe Lidia is one of Marikina's pride, it opened on 2009, 4 days after the Ondoy tragedy. One of the crew told me that the store itself was affected by the devastating flood that struck the city two years ago. Good things was that, now, Cafe Lidia had already established a good name in food dining. People are raving about their pasta, pizza, main dishes, coffees and cakes. Not only that, the price is very reasonable and the servings are big.

There's a homey feel once your inside the restaurant.

The crews are very friendly and accommodating...

My weakness.... I want to bring home their refrigerated pastry case :)

quite big dining area

The name reminds me of my pretty niece Rashel Lidia

Hahaha!!! this is mom Rizza :)

My hubby now ready for some gastronomic challenge...

We first had their famous Buffalo Wings...
Truly one of the best buffalo wings in the Metro!!!
very cheap for a price of P 150.00

I had Mixed Seafood in Marinara Sauce P 150.00
Mixed seafood sauted in white wine and spicy marinara sauce
Thumbs up for this!!!
Pasta Ala Lidia P 135.00
(This is the Specialty of the House)
Anchovies, olives, capers, tuna and tomatoes in olive oil.
Two thumbs up for this!!!
House Pizza Special P 220.00
Pepperoni, Ham, Bacon, Onion, Mushroom, Bell Pepper and Pineapple
(you'll never go wrong with this one)

The pasta is good for 2, don't be fooled the plate is very big :)

Good thing we brought our tripod with us... hahaha!!!
We'll definitely go back even if it's quite far from our place :)
