kale and romaine infused salad topped with prosciutto, figs, and walnuts

Jumpstart your Balboa experience with a kale and romaine infused salad topped with prosciutto, figs, and walnuts. The unique blend of tastes and textures will actually make you like veggies if you're not a fan to begin with.

Spaghetti Boscaiola

On to the prime meals: the lovely pasta treats! The classic spaghetti dish gets a delightful twist that you will surely enjoy. Try out the Spaghetti Boscaiola yourself!

Seafood And Fresh Lemon Tagliatelle

If you're not into tomato-based sauces, worry not! We've got you covered. How about a Seafood And Fresh Lemon Tagliatelle? You'll be chowing down on this olive oil based pasta with shrimps, spinach, and huge cherry tomatoes in no time.

Fennel Sausage Pizza

We simply can't put into words our undying love for pizza. We're obsessed with the Fennel Sausage Pizza where sausage is the new pepperoni.

Spinach Truffle Prosciutto Pizza

Fancy more toppings? Have an equally yummy Spinach Truffle Prosciutto Pizza! Another bonus? These babies are baked to perfection in a brick oven. Sigh.

Buttermilk Roast Chicken

Balboa is more than just pizza and pasta. The Buttermilk Roast Chicken is tender and its warm buttery flavor is a surprise we can't wait to indulge in again. It melts in your mouth and is the perfect accessory to the smoked meat. Mac and cheese is yet another comfort food we're all too familiar with, which is why you have to try the Mac Cheese with Chili Beef. The chili beef spin is another revelation we'd gladly succumb to. The dish tastes like tacos, mac and cheese version!

U.S. Rib Eye Steak

Most people don't really think of dry aged steaks as part of the world famous Italian cuisine. This savory U.S. Rib Eye Steak will make you lick your fingers and smack your lips. It's that good!

Fruit Safari

Take gulps of the refreshing Fruit Safari in between bites. If there's such a thing as summer in a drink, we're pretty sure we've found it!

St. Honore Cake

Finish everything off with a sweet and lavish treat actually brought in straight from Europe! Yup, you got it, this divine St. Honore Cake is actually transported from Italia to Manila with love.
