The Old Spaghetti House

It was a very early dinner for a special day last February 24. It had been a very long day with our families so Mon and I just wanted to get away and be by ourselves yet be home early and rest.

We headed off to Festival Mall in Alabang to try The Old Spaghetti House. The place is just small but cozy. They have several tables outside for those who want to enjoy their food outdoors. I wouldn't wanna do that in a tropical country like ours, though.

My major blunder that night was my main course.... why didn't I order pasta! It is a pasta house afterall! Silly silly me... I ended up getting envious with Mon's Sun Dried Tomatoes and Pesto with Grilled Chicken strips. It was good. Really good. I had their Baked U.S. Spareribs which wasn't really bad, but i can't say it was anything out of the ordinary.

But the desserts truly saved the day for me! I had the Mud Pie and Mon had the Chocolate Truffle Pie. They were both heavenly! But I enjoyed my Mud Pie immensely. I think I will come back for seconds if only to have another slice of this.

I don't think this would be our last visit. I have to try their their pasta dishes next time. That is for sure.


  1. Ay yan pala yung nasa flickr mo. Why is it called Old Spaghetti? =D

  2. I love their pasta arrabiatta and sun-dried tomato pesto w/ fish fillet :D may masarap din silang pizza. nakalimutan ko yung tawag. hehe. reasonable proces nila, kaso ang bagal ng service nila e..

    first ko rin na-try TOSH sa festival mall.. then may malapit pala sa ofc namin. hehe.

  3. It's been a year since I last dined here. Thanks for the reminder.

    Gizelle, the name is indeed funny now that you mentioned it...

  4. giz, yup. most of the time, at about the same day i blog a topic, i post din sa flickr. kaya pareho. :-)
    ewan ko din kung bakit The Old Spaghetti House eh. others want to call it TOSH.

    u8mypinkcookies, medyo na feel din namin ang slow service. to think na 3 tables lang kami nun. anyway, will definitely be back. pasta na talaga ang try ko next time. thanks for the tip. ;-)

    em dy, youre welcome. ill be coming back too. love their mudpie... ;-)

  5. this place is good for the quick fix, problem is, different branches make them very inconsistent with their food

  6. sakai, oh well, i guess we have to bring a lot of luck with us everytime we visit no! ;-)
