Choribugers, fruit shakes, and now: fine Italian cuisine. Find out how Forno Osteria at Discovery Shores brings the tastes of Italy to beautiful Boracay with pizzas, steaks, and more.
Beyond its fine white sand and gorgeous sunsets, Boracay island is becoming a dining destination in its own right. It easily is one of the best local travel spots for indulging in exceptional food, with a number of signature dishes and must-try items emerging from the different parts of the island. A wonderful addition to this list is Discovery Shores Boracay’s Italian restaurant, Forno Osteria, located at the ground level of the Signature Suites wing of the renowned resort.
Forno Osteria offers a treasure trove of dishes that are sure to win you over. Its menu serves a range of Italian comfort food from antipasti, soups, risottos, pasta, pizzas and dulci selections, all thoughtfully handmade with the freshest of ingredients. The restaurant’s steak, seafood, and other meat dishes are expertly grilled and cooked to perfection, achieving unmatched flavour and texture.
Forno Osteria, which literally translates to ‘oven’ and ‘Italian restaurant serving wine and good food’ specializes in freshly baked pizzas and grilled steaks. The restaurant's focal point appropriately spotlights the pizza brick oven and Josper grill used to churn out these delicious dishes.
The restaurant’s brick oven-baked pizzas are made fresh and hand-stretched daily, which produces the airy and bubble-like holes in the pizza. The brick oven then imparts a light golden brown crust, creating that crisp texture you look for with every bite.
On the other hand, the Josper grill perfectly marries the functions of a grill and an oven combining the age-old art of grilling over charcoal and an oven’s controlled cooking temperatures to make perfect, mouthwatering steaks every single time. This technique imbues the meat with unrivalled moisture, flavour, and smokiness - every steak lover’s dream.
Apart from the pizzas and steaks, there’s so much to explore at Forno Osteria. Try the charcuterie platter and pair it with a glass of your favourite vino or have a serving of ravioli di mushroom served with marsala wine, spinach, almonds, honey, sage and brown butter sauce. Before completing the meal, there’s always room for dessert. Be it the classic tiramisu or the Sicilian cannoli served with chocolate ricotta filling, candied citrus, and spiced syrup, each mouthful will surely excite the senses.
