I remember it was only early this year when I get the chance to try Italianni's Holiday Feast Platter for 2011. During that time, I admit that although Italianni's has always been one of my favorite restaurants here in Manila, trying out different restaurants for food blogging limits revisits to the familiar. But all things fall into place when I was reacquainted with the old favorite because this year, there were countless of times that I get to dine at Italianni's.
Time flies fast, and now I am writing about Italianni's Holiday Feast Platters for this year 2012. With the spirit of Christmas season still lingering even after the day itself, gastronomical festivities still continue at Italianni's with this holiday offering.
While I am aware that most of us still have tons of food for our disposal stashed in our pantries, Italianni's Holiday Feast Platters are worth visiting the restaurant for. I have enjoyed their Tre Combinazioni platter and I must say that their feast for this are equally satisfying. There are two Holiday Feast Platter to choose from; one is the Country Classic, and the other one is the Farmer's Feast.
The Country Classic is a bountiful combination of Creamy Marinara Pasta with Smoked Salmon, perfectly Grilled Chicken, and Tender Boneless Beef Short Ribs. For the price of Php 1,125 you'll get these three dishes in their own respective big plates ready to be devoured. While the pasta and the chicken dish are both impressive, it was the beef short ribs in my opinion plays as the star in this amazing combination.

The Farmer's Feast on the other hand includes Aglio Olio Pasta, Herb Roasted Chicken, and tender slow braised Baby Back Ribs. Also priced at Php 1,125 this feast is a delight to the palate with the perfect combination of the simplicity of the pasta, the earthy flavor of the chicken, and the robust meaty taste of the ribs.
