Rosa Laguna has evolved into a refreshing culinary destination that stands tall on its own. Its slightly cooler weather, cleaner air and lighter traffic make it a perfect “out-of-town” date with bae sans the absurd gas requirement.

Plus, we’ve narrowed down the choices to the most inexpensive, date-worthy restaurants. Enjoy these 8!

The OG of food parks, Maginhawa StrEAT, has finally branched out to the south. To this, foodies from Santa Rosa Laguna are eternally grateful.

Trade tired cheesy lines for decadent Italian fare at Nonna’s. Trust us; bae will appreciate it.

From the same makers of huge success Mama Lou’s—Nonna’s sets itself apart with its handmade pasta and pizza dough, as well as its trendier, more modern approach on its interiors and food. Prime examples of that are the Seoul Special Pizza, Vesuvio (an outrageously cheesy mountain of rigatoni), and many delicious others.
