Launching this February!
For all of you who are reading about La Spezia for the first time, it is one of Metro Manila’s best new homegrown restaurants of 2016. It is a homey and countryside inspired Italian restaurant started by Enderun college mates, Sean Yuquimpo and Aaron Shiu.
When La Spezia opened in November of last year, it promised an elevated yet approachable Italian dining experience–which includes non-fusion timeless classics, as well as a regularly-changing menu with secret specials.
