T's Birthday at Con Gusto (by Buon Giorno) Alabang.

T and his mom celebrated their birthdays at Con Gusto in Molito Arcade Alabang.

The place is so pretty and yet homey at the same time.

I love their coasters...

...as well as this window that gives us a peek into the kitchen.  The "finishing touches" are actually done in the counter for the diners to see. 

To start, our servers gave us bread and butter.

When the manager (or owner?) learned that T and his mom are celebrating their birthdays, she gave us a bottles of red and white wine. So nice!

I wasn't able to get a photo of everyone's orders but here's a rundown of the dishes:

Salad Greens with Buon Giorno's Special Marlinjo Dressing (P250/$5)
I wasn't able to try this but it looks good!

Margherita Pizza (P280/$6)
Tomato, mozzarella, basil.

Chicken and Mushroom Risotto (P310/$7)
This is good but serving size is a bit small.  If you didn't order anything else, this is good enough for one person only.

Salmon & Asparagus Risotto (P290/$6.50)
Risotto with smoked salmon and asparagus.  This is a bit bland.

Fettuccine Carbonara (P310/$7)
A classic Roman pasta rich with cream and eggs.

T's niece Natalia about to enjoy her carbonara.

I ordered the Grilled Sea Bass (P765/$17) served with Sanmariglio sauce of olive oil, lemon juice, and herbs whisked together.   This is good but again, serving size is a bit small.

The white wine went well with my sea bass.

After our meals, the servers gave T and his mom a cake each so they can blow a candle.

Make a wish!

Happy birthday T and Tita Gie!

Thumbs Up!
Everyone is so nice and accommodating (thank you for the free wine!).

Thumbs Down!
Serving size is small.

We'll probably be back to try the other dishes.
