The new Loft Cebu is now called The Loft Cuisine by Guiseppe. Guiseppe of Giuseppe Pizzeria & Sicilian Roast has lent his expertise and sprinkled a dash of his recipes to the new menu of The Loft Cebu. Better – he gave us Moreno Benigno, the new Italian chef of the Loft Cuisine. Everything seems new here – new interiors (thanks Kenneth Cobonpue!), new food, new aura yet same good vibes that we all come back to the Loft for.

When we were invited to a sit down dinner to meet Chef Moreno and taste his new menu, we couldn’t be ecstatic! Charles, their marketing director, has told me a lot of great things will happen and I couldn’t wait to see that for myself!

Chef Benigno sat down with us everytime a dish is placed on our table and gave anecdotes on its history or ingredient or just plainly tell us, “You will love it!”  He is right. Every dish was an anticipation – every course heightens your mood to the main highlight: THE SALMON. But wait, did I tell you about the appetizers?

Cocktail di gamberi – Spoons with mixed salad prawns in pink sauce

Bean soup




Rigatoni All’ Amatriciana


Moreno told us tales about the traditional Italian pasta sauce based on guanciale (cured pork cheek) and hence, the inspiration for this dish


Salmone – salmon fillet in bell pepper mushroom crust and polenta – this was savory! Can you see the portions are good enough for 2? Polenta could very much substitute your rice craving here and so is this shrimp dish (below). The prawns are MASSIVE.


It was not flouting on any drama at all – they were simple and good and the only thing complicated in this life is how to explain how good they were!

Tiramisu for dessert!


Thanks Loft for the wonderful Italian experience!
