There’s seems to be a regular supply of new restaurants in Gensan, we can’t catch up with them! So on this post, I’ll be telling you all about a Saturday I went on a pizza overload.
I know these two pizza places have been open for quite some time but have not yet gotten the time to check them out.
To be fair to both, I asked for their bestsellers and they are Mamma Maria’s Mamma Mia Pizza and Calda Pizza’s Calda Pizza.
Mamma Mia was a little lacking in sauce and cheese while Calda was just generous on those. Crust-wise, I like them both. What just bothered me with Mamma Mia’s crust was the crispy, thin crust edges that became an inconvenience for me as I could not hold the pizza well without crumbling the edges. It was messy too. Taste? I vote for Calda. Flavorful, less greasy and toppings-abundant. When you add hot sauce or pepper sauce to it, it just becomes a winner. So I would say now that Calda Pizza is my guy.
I tried Mamma Maria’s Carbonara as well. It was okay. I wasn’t jumping up and down though.
On store location and ambience, Mamma Maria’s is air-conditioned while Calda is al fresco. It could get really warm in Gensan so I would really love to be eating in a cooler place. On my visit to Mamma Maria’s, I was alone in the restaurant yet as it was still really early for lunch. Bad thing, the staff were laughing out loud and storytelling like they were in a beach outing. It was very unprofessional.
So will I go back to Mamma Maria’s and Calda? I think I will. I still have a lot of pizza and pasta to try out.
Mamma Maria’s Pizzeria is located in Quirino Ave just in front of Starbright and Calda Pizza is located in Clarisa St. If you’re coming from the National Highway, turn right when you see the RDEX store, that’s Clarisa St.
