Our clients' happiness is our priority, thus making sure that we give them the best food and service that we can provide.

about us

In June 1992, Bernadette Carteciano, wanted to start a business of her own after working long hours in the airline industry. It all started with the simple idea of cooking for a small group of people looking for delicious home-cooked meals. Seeing how students were looking for affordable meals, Acacia Refreshment Parlor came into fruition.


After a few years, Acacia Refreshment Parlor was renamed to what people know now as Acacia Alley Restaurant. Still honoring the Acacia tree planted on the family lot where most of Acacia Alley’s events are held.


Headed by her mother, Debora Carpena-Carteciano, and her, Acacia Alley has been part of many people’s lives in Santa Rosa, Laguna. From baptisms, to birthdays, proms, graduations, debuts, weddings, and all other things in between and after, Acacia Alley has had the honor of catering to different people celebrating their lives.


Now that Bernadette Carteciano-Itaralde has a daughter of her own, Gianne Itaralde, Acacia Alley continues to be headed by a mother-daughter tandem with a vision to continue on improving and providing quality service and food to their clients.

  • Debora Carteciano

    In memory of our beloved Debora Carpena - Carteciano. Ebbie was known as an English teacher, and a businesswoman. She used to man at their family's stall at the Santa Rosa public market, with pigs being their main source of income.


    More than anything, she loved to cook, and was passionate about it. She attended seminars under Chef Nora Daza. When her daughter, Bernadette, told her she wanted to start a business, they did it together. Ebbie being the head of the kitchen, and her daughter being in charge of operations, the two had worked hard to make Acacia Alley Restaurant & Catering what it is today.
