Fratini's Restaurant: Authentic Italian Cuisine

Headed to Makati to try out Fratini's and the verdict? Food's good but be prepared to spend.

Located in SM Jazz Mall in Bel-Air, Makati, Fratini's Restaurant is a simple restaurant offering authentic Italian cuisine. 
Here's what we ordered:

Garlic Bread with Spinach and Artichoke Formaggio Dip (P325)
Pizza Suprema (P495)
half topped with cream sauce, mozzarella cheese, tuna, prawns, onion, chili, and bell peppers; the other half with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, chicken breast, onion, bell peppers, and pineapple
Linguini Al Frutti Di Mare (P325)
Special flat pasta served with assorted mixed seafood, garlic, chili, fresh herbs, and tomato sauce or fish bouillion
Ravioli Al Gamberoni (P315)
homemade pasta filled with prawns meat and cream cheese, tossed with squid, olives, and parsley sauce
Risotto Al Nero de Seppia (P495)
Italian rice braised in a black ink squid stew topped with crispy tiger prawns
Cannelloni De Pollo El Funghi (P375)
baked homemade pasta tube filled with roasted chicken meat and fresh mushroom served with cream and cheese sauce
Conclusion: It was difficult to distinguish what each menu item meant. We really had to read the description, therefore taking us longer to order. The Garlic Bread with Spinach and Artichoke Formaggio Dip was delicious, and the staff was nice enough to give us a second helping of the bread. The Pizza Suprema was small for its price, but it worked well as an appetizer since we had to wait a bit to get our mains. My Cannelloni was served really hot. If you love cream-based pasta, you'll surely enjoy this one. I just prefer my dishes with a bit of contrast to it. I think everything in it complemented each other too well. Not exactly a bad thing, I dunno. I wouldn't mind dining here again in case I find myself in the area, but I wouldn't drive from QC just for it.
