Do you love Italian food, but also want to support local cuisine? Located in San Fernando, Pampanga, Parmisano’s Bistro is the brainchild of 5 people who aim to fuse foreign and local cuisine together (or #GLocal as they call it). The name Parmisano is actually the family name of the sisters turned business partners after realizing that their love for Italian and Kapampangan food must be shared and spread to a wider audience to promote the food culture of Pampanga.

Since Filipinos are known for their hospitality, the owners want to let their guests experience the same type of comfort – from the food to the ambiance of the place.

As you step foot into the place, you will be welcomed by soft music playing in the background. The next thing you will notice is the cozy vibe that the restaurant radiates with its simple but chic interiors. Here, you will find a chill, laidback vibe that you just can’t find in Manila.

Parmisano’s has a wide variety of food, but the best part is that they make sure to keep a touch of “Filipino” in them. Another good thing about this place is that their serving size is good for 2-4 people. Truly, every bite will you wanting for more. Here are some of the dishes you need to try:
