Bigoli is one of the few restaurants in Eastwood that has completely stood the test of time. This resto has been around for ages – I can still remember having dinner here with my mom back when I was in highschool, when the restaurant was still called Fazoli… And mind you, I graduated from highschool almost a decade ago. It’s quite amazing how much this place hasn’t changed, still serving its patrons with delicious Italian food.

Interior. Still as spacious as ever.

Menu. I desperately need a new camera….

Stromboli, aka rolled pizza. Very delicious and freshly-baked too, especially with the dipping sauce.

Italian Chicken with two types of pasta: Fettucine Carbonara and Spaghetti al Pesto. The sauce that they used for the chicken was a bit tangy, and the pesto could use a little more flavoring/color. Other than that though, it was pretty decent. AND THE BREADSTICKS!!! I think they shrunk in size, but they still have that lovely buttery/soft texture that I’ve always loved.

Another type of pasta we ordered – Abruzzo’s Aglio Olio, with bits of crispy bacon.

It’s so nice to return here again after a really, really long while – It feels like I went back to my highschool days, back when the only thing I had to worry about was whether or not I had put too much baby powder on my face, or if I had the capacity to finish all of my assignments come Sunday night. Stepping inside this resto brought back a feeling of nostalgia for me. And even though admittedly their food wasn’t as good as before, I would gladly come back here if given the opportunity.

Ambiance/Interior: 4/5
