Casa Italia had its grand launch of its first branch in the Philippines last December 10, and is now serving in their BGC branch their famous offerings of micro-roasted coffee 'OTTO,' handcrafted premium gelato, and freshly-made food.
The brand began as a gelateria (gelato shop) back in 2010, and since then has been churning out all-natural flavors of handcrafted gelato (no artificial flavours, colorants, or preservatives). They also create the gelato using recipes dating back to 1962 -- how gelato was traditionally made. Gelato at Casa Italia Philippines is available in different sizes: Piccolo/1 Scoop (P130), Medio/2 Scoops (P195), Grande/3 Scoops (P260), and in takeaway bowl/trays in 1/2 Vaschetta (P550) and Vaschetta (P1,050). They also offer a special Durian gelato (P195/Medio).
They further expanded the food offerings to serve specialty coffee and Italian comfort food in a casual setting. For coffee, they sell the Micro-Roasted Coffee Otto, roasted in small batches -- the signature blend of 100% Arabica beans is never older than 8 weeks from roasting (otto is 'eight' in Italian).
