Pizza Republic by Giuseppe Genco is no longer new in town. It has been operational in Cebu since June this year. Yet, you never cease seeing this place full of diners.
I heard mixed reviews of this place. It's a subjective view that's attributed to the size of its pizza and its price. I just had to try them myself.
I am not much of a pizza fan but Pizza Republic makes it so interesting to try. Pizza Republic gives you the free hand to pick and mix as many toppings as you want. Pizza size is 10". You can choose from a variety of cheeses, meat, veggies, and herbs. I think I enjoyed choosing my own pizza ingredients more than I liked eating them. LOL
The variety may be confusing. I suggest do not overthink them. Add everything that you like. Just add these ingredients for taste -- cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, caramelized onion, black olives, onions, green bell peper. They made our pizza better.
Going in groups is highly recommended. You can have more pizza pans to experiment a mix of different ingredients. You can even name your own pizza creation. After baking, you can have a contest of who created the best pizza. That's what we did. It was fun. :) Check out our pizza creations.
If you are unsure to try, here are suggested mixes. You can easily find this at the wall.
I also appreciate Pizza Republic's spacious place and good ventilation system. I like to eat my pizza without smelling like pizza. :)
As for the price, each pizza costs Php245. A bottle of Nestea Lemon Iced Tea or a can of soda costs Php45. They also have other options such as beef rolls, packed salads, and packed desserts. If you're a fan of cheesecakes, I do not recommend buying their blueberry cheescake cups. You'd be disappointed. Oh well.. after all, this isn't called cheesecake republic. corny joke, I know. LOL Pizza pizza pizza... it's unique here. This is definitely a must-try pizza place.
