the chef is fantastic cook and knows his foods. very delicious and many entries available. great location at prime asia hotel angeles city, so if you want great italian food try here.
I revisited the Little Vicar last week in its new location in the Prime Asia Hotel.
I was impressed with the restaurant. It is clearly Italian in that it has high ceilings with frescos and chandeliers and some interesting paintings of opera masks around the walls. I thought it was set up well with direct access from the parking outside and function room above.
The starter section is such that one can get a selection of different items and I did that again opting for an oyster – au natural , a smoked salmon and crème cheese bruschetta as well as a tomato and mozzarella one – there were two of us we had one each and it was an excellent starter.
For mains I had duck a la orange ( Duck Breast Melarango on the menu) – a favourite of mine and a dish I have not had for a while. It was slightly over cooked for me but otherwise first rate. But as I did not ask for it pink that was partly my bad. My dining companion had a seared tuna salad which was suitable rated and it looked good.
I had desert of cannoli Siciliani which was shells filled with chocolate mousse and or ricotta cheese = I am not sure what the shells were made of and they did not excite me which for me rather ruined the excellent fillings.
I had a bottle Pinot Grigio from a small but adequate wine list – selling wine in AC is mugs game I fear but variety is adequate be it limited.
The service was excellent and I enjoyed the meal. I could have spent a lot more money on more exotic dishes – lobster tails and steaks were offered. Piccolo Padre is not cheap but it is good – almost certainly the best in Angeles City, and in IMO provides the single best reason to stay at the Prime Asia Hotel. Visited September 2015
