Blissful Moments and Good Food at Cuore Bistro Makati

“Italian food is all about ingredients and it's not fussy and it's not fancy” -Wolfgang Puck

When it comes to food nothing beats the creativity of Pinoys in the kitchen, the ability to adopt a foreign cuisine concept and turned it around to meet the discriminating palettes of Filipino foodies is almost innate to us Pinoys who know how to cook.



One of the favorite international cuisines that we Pinoys are enamored to is Italian food. When we talk about Italian dishes- pasta, pizza and anything with fresh tomatoes and olive oil come to mind. But this traditional concept of what Italian food should be has been twisted by a group of young foodies and developed a whole new concept that is suited for the Filipino taste buds and this is what Cuore Bistro & Social Lounge is all about.
