Festa Italiana at Cucina Marco Polo Hotel Manila

Celebrate an Italian festa for the ages this June, as Marco Polo Ortigas Manila brings Italy to Manila with Festa Italiana.

Italy, a country rich in culture and art also boasts of delectable dishes that has become a staple in almost every continent in the world, let's savor great Italian tastes as Marco Polo Ortigas Manila brings in culinary maestro, Chef Andrea Delzanno from Marco Polo Hong Kong, with his experience and expertise in bringing authentic Italian favorites to Cucina, Marco Polo Ortigas Manila's all day restaurant. 

Chef Andrea Delzanno, born and raised in Piedmont, Italy, has been working on truffles and the best wines since he was a kid.  He started training with chefs with Michelin-starred restaurants from Italy, to New York all the way to Asia.  He has shared his trademark formula for creatively cooking with his favourite ingredients of porcini mushrooms, red prawn, tomatoes, fresh herbs and truffles.
