1. Of course, the top reason would be because LizQuen (Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil) take the lead roles. They’re not just any ordinary love team; they’re beyond what they’re called. LizQuen never fail to convey their respective characters’ emotions. They provide 50% REEL and 50% REAL kilig to the viewers of Dolce Amore. The kind of love these two have on-screen and off-cam is not the puppy love that we often see. Their definition of love is taken to a different and more mature level. It is good to note that as young as they are, they are able to deliver their lines with depth, and portray whatever the script calls for. They also handle heavy scenes perfectly that the emotions affect the viewers. They have apparently given distinctions between the old and new version of Serena and Tenten. Local and international awards certainly await them. They’re not only gifted, but they are also gorgeous and grounded. Two thumbs up!
  2. The plot is unpredictable and it makes the story more interesting and exciting. Although a lot of viewers got disappointed with Serena’s amnesia thinking that it’s cliché, it actually turns out that it is a blessing in disguise. If Serena did not happen to have amnesia, the transition to book 2 would have not been that smooth. Serena could have been forced to move on and marry Gian Carlo. Her anger to Tenten could have prevented her from coming back to the Philippines and resolve the issue with her amore. Tenten, on the other side of the world, could have chosen to do the same and live all his life in guilt without getting the chance to know that he and Serena have been played upon by destiny and by the people they love, and that he has every right to fight his love for her. Now, the unraveling and deepening of each character in the story is giving the audience the chance to know how each one is related to another. Plot twists are certainly to be looked out for.
  3. The head writer and his co-writers deserve a big round of applause for creating lines that best suit each character and scene. One cannot afford to miss any single line so as to avoid from getting off-track. There are lines that have underlying profundity, and it takes keenness to notice and to be curious about what they could possibly mean.
  4. Symbolic figures are used.The usage of alitaptap, signs of true love (babagal ang ikot ng mundo, aawit ang mga ibon, at magliliwanag ang madilim mong paligid), and Serena’s dress color in book 2 is very subtle, yet significant.
  5. The artists chosen are tailor-fit for the characters they portray. I couldn’t imagine their roles being played by somebody else, especially Serena’s, Tenten’s, Gian Carlo’s, and Luciana’s part.
  6. The director has brought out the best in every actor and actress in the show. The artists’ acting is neither under nor over. The blend is just perfect for the heavy and light scenes.
  7. It is the ONLY teleserye so far that has given trauma to its viewers and makes them argue whether a ‘too-good-to-be-true’ scene is an imagination or not. 
  8. It has drawn audience from all walks of life. It is funny to note that some base their actions depending on what happens in the episode. For example, I’ve read a tweet before that the manager would treat his staff if TenGel would break up. I wonder if the staff really had their shares of TenGel’s breakup.
  9. It makes its viewers to rush home from work and school just because they don’t want to be late. It’s agonizing when you’re not yet home and it’s already 8:00 p.m. If an episode is missed, one surely makes way to watch replay.
  10. It showcases the beauty of Italy, the place per se and the language. It also promotes some tourist destinations here in the Philippines.

BONUS: Dolce Amore is undeniably a top-rating show.



    1. You’re welcome. 🙂 I love the show so much as well. I also love LizQuen. ❤ Thanks for appreciating the post. 🙂


  1. Funny but watching DA was my bonding time with my 2 men of my life – my hubby & my son. We never missed an episode. Fact is, it was my amore (a certified LuzQuen fan) who subscribed to TFC just in time for the pilot episode.


  2. This is indeed a very good article. I agree with everything you enumerated about Dolce Amore. If you do not watch the show and just rely on someone to tell you the story, you will find the storyline typical and so cliche. But if you watch it, you start questioning why you could not even predict a cliche storyline. Credit should really go to the writers for being so bold and being risk takers, making DA’s storytelling unique on its own. Brilliant scripts and dialogues are impressive as well. True, they used symbols, paradigms and parallelism in the characters and in the scenes. The kubo, for instance, is the symbol of Tenten’s heart which is locked up for the longest time, with Serena as the holder of the key. It has spoken Luciana’s parallelism as a mother between Serena and Simon. The “out with the old, in with the new” parallelism between Villa Marchesa and Simon Dubois. The amnesia cliche plot was so beautifully told when they used another cliche plot like Papa Roberto’s state of comatose. The writers isolated Serena’s character from anyone who could possibly help her regain her memory to give sole credit to her heart when she fall for the same man all over again to emphasize “what the mind forgets, the heart remembers” theme on Book 2. Lastly, DA is the only teleserye who dissected its storylines into three books and limited each chapter in a period of 2 to 2 1/2 months. It is theme-focused in each book and it actually gave us 3 in 1 teleserye, first teleserye that ever executed their story in this manner. Further, they always start a book with accelerated time (1 to 2 years gap)…that way enabling the viewers to see the gist of the story while details comes in through flashbacks as it incoprorates with current timeline. This makes the viewers left with so many questions and patiently waits for answers as the story unfolds. This kind of storytelling makes the story exciting and more interesting. DA is one show that endlessly tickles your emotions as well as your intellect, thus offering us entertainment, and at the same time, making us thinking viewers as well.


  3. The best teleserye. Surely LizQuen garnered the untapped market which are the professionals. The only loveteam which I invested time, effort and emotion because I see that they are true and real. Funny when I read the #7 reason it reminds me of alot of netizens complains that this is the only teleserye that has so many dreams/imagination. 😍
