Pizza Afternoon at Picobello!

Picobello Davao

Woot thank God it’s Friday!

(Except it’s not really the start of the weekend in my case since I have to attend a CPD session tomorrow and on Saturday. CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development, which is a requirement for PRC professionals. Oh well, that’s life!)

I’m keen on going through all of my backlog before mid-February so here’s another one. My college friends and I always get together every year for a little Christmas luncheon and gift exchange. Last year’s venue was Belito’s Vineyard while this year’s was Picobello.

If you’re from Davao, surely you’ve heard of the iconic Picobello, an authentic Italian restaurant that serves the best pizzas ever. It used to be located at Gaisano South Mall and then it closed (much to the dismay of perhaps every Davaoeño who loves pizza). Just recently, it reopened in another location at The Shoppes at Woodlane. Upon hearing this wonderful news, of course, we just had to visit it.

Here are what we ordered:

Calzone – Stuffed with ricotta cheese, ham, mozzarella, parmesan, black olives and capers

Pepperoni Pizza – Tomato, mozzarella, pepperoni

I’m a bad blogger. I didn’t even pay attention to the menu or even to the specific prices of the dishes we ordered. So I have almost no memory of how much these pizzas and pasta cost. But I’ll assure you that they are affordable (within the P300-P400 range I think?). I’ll update this post once I learn the prices.

Anyway, here are pictures of the place. Of course, with all of our baon stories and two little kiddos, we had to sit in the al fresco area:

The new Picobello is located at The Shoppes at Woodlane, Diversion Road, Davao City.

Can you see the restaurant at the right? I was too lazy to go nearer so I had to take a picture some metres away

Just writing this post makes me crave for calzone again!

    My best buddy and I also have that kind of Christmas meet up every year. We call it as our Christmas Party (yes, parang di pinag-isipan, Ihihi). Italso takes us hours to finish because of the so many new stories and updates.

    Nway, love the pictures, including that with ate waitress. Ihihi. The food also looks so yummy. When I visit davao again, will definitely try that place.

    Iba talaga ang dating ng authentic italian resto no? They serves super yummy pizza and pasta! If you have Picobello in Davao, we have our A Veneto Pizzeria Ristorante in Manila 🙂

    I’ve never been to Davao but based on your photos it seems to be a much better place compared to Metro Manila…

  • Reply TweenselMom February 3, 2016 at 10:33 am

    I’d go for the Ravioli! I wish to go to Davao in the near future, and you are a great blogger. I’ll check your blog when we do our planning.
