Last September 2016, together with fellow cheese-addicts Lakwatsero.com and JovialWanderer.com we went to Galileo Enoteca Deli to try the Parmesan Cheese Wheel Pasta and it was worth it! Good food, great ambience and helpful staff.
Do not know on how you can avail the Parmesan Cheese Wheel Pasta in Galileo Enoteca? This blog post is exactly for you.
1. Galileo Enoteca is a Wine Library
Going to Galileo Enoteca I was only looking forward to seeing my pasta be mixed inside the big Parmesan Cheese Wheel that I did not even bother to think on what the place looked like. Surprisingly, It was full of brick walls and many many wines. In fact, the word ‘enoteca’ is an Italian word which means ‘wine-library’.
If you read Galileo Enoteca’s history it actually mainly sold wines from Italy. We ordered Fragolino Blanco Sparkling as adviced by their staff (950 Pesos/bottle)*.
With Italian wines comes great Italian food, thus Pizza and Pasta! Cold Cuts and Cheese! Perfect partners for the wine.
2. Walking distance from MRT Shaw Boulevard Station
Galileo Enoteca is located at the intersection of Calbayog Street and Malinao Street in Mandaluyong City. If you do not know where that is then you are as clueless as I am when I first went there.
Galileo Enoteca Deli is only around 10 minutes walk from the MRT Station of Shaw Boulevard or Shangila Mall.
You can follow the Google Map below to get there.
If you have a vehicle you can park on the side.
3. Friday to Sunday only
Though Galileo Enoteca is open everyday of the week, you can only avail of the Parmesan Cheese Wheel Pasta on Friday, Saturday and Sunday only.
If you go there on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday you can avail of the items on their menu but not the Parmesan Cheese Wheel Pasta.

4. Reservation is Required
If you’re planning to just show up in Galileo Enoteca and order the Parmesan Cheese Wheel Pasta without a reservation you would go home very sad because they require a reservation.
To reserve you can call their phone at the following numbers
- (+632) 532-0482
- (+632) 534-4633
You can also make a reservation via their website.
5. Price is 500 Pesos/order* for Parmesan Wheel Pasta
The price of the Parmesan Cheese Wheel Pasta is 500 Pesos/order.
I know it’s not your typical affordable price for a restaurant but that is how they priced it and we should respect it. Besides the price is worth it.
6. Choose what type of Parmesan Cheese Wheel Pasta
When the waiter gave their menu I was surprised that we still had to make a choice on what types of pasta and sauce should be mixed with it.
I was really hungry. So we made a quick discussion on what we will order and settled for the following.
- Tagliatelle Pasta with Creamy Truffle Sauce
- Penne Pasta with Alfredo Sauce with Shrimp
They were good choices if you ask me. Especially the Pasta with Alfredo Sauce with Shrimp.
7. Size of the Parmesan Cheese Wheel Pasta
When we asked their staff if we should how many we should order he told us that it was good for 2 persons so we only made 2 orders. When our Parmesan Cheese Wheel Pasta arrived I agree that it was actually good for 2 persons.
But my reality is different, with how good it taste and how big my appetite is I could actually devour a single order.
8. Mixing Pasta in the Parmesan Wheel
When we ordered their staff told us to wait and they will call us when our pasta will be mixed in the Parmesan Cheese Wheel.
After about around 20 minutes, their staff approached us and told us that we should head to where they cook the pasta and mix it with the Parmesan Cheese Wheel.
There they taught us on how to properly mix the pasta inside the cheese wheel and we got an educational story on how truffles are retrieved.
This is my favorite part of the experience.
9. Galileo Enoteca is also an Italian Restaurant
Since I have talked about pasta for a great bit I think this point is already a bit too late but still it has to be said. Galileo Enoteca is not just a Wine Library, it is also an Italian Restaurant.
We also ordered the following.
- 300g Formaggi & Salumi Misti (Mixed Cold Cuts & Cheese)
- Margherita Pizza (Pomodoro, Mozarella & Basilico)
10. No Service Charge
Maybe I am used to restaurants here in the Philippines having to charge customers with Service Charge that was why I was surprised to see the bill did not have the usual Service Charge.
They do have greate service. We were well taken care of during the time we were there so we made a generous and happy tip of 10%.
11. Credit Cards are Accepted
They accept credit cards if you do not want to bring money or just in case you enjoyed their food and decided to go over your allotted cash budget.
All in all for that night we spent around 3,850 Pesos (1,284 Pesos/person) and it was worth it.
We also ordered Allogato el Caffe (220 Pesos/order) in case you were wondering why our orders totaled 3,850 Pesos.
I think Galileo Enoteca is a really good place for a date. Now I just need to bring the one to Metro Manila so I could dine here again.
