- Gnocchi alla Romana: semolina gnocchi baked with butter & parmesan. The word for gnocchi may derive from the Italian word nocchio meaning a knot in the wood. It has been a traditional type of Italian pasta since Roman times. Each area has developed their own kind of gnocchi.
- Penne all’Amatriciana: succulent bacon and tomato sauce. The invention of the first tomato sauces dates back to the late 18th century. The Amatriciana recipe became increasingly famous in Rome in the 19th and 20th centuries rapidly thought of as a classic of Roman cuisine. Originated in the nearby town of Amatrice.
- Saltimbocca alla Romana: chicken with prosciutto & sage. Saltimbocca literary means “jumps in the mouth”. Unifying the local flavors of the region our version of the dish combines butter, white wine, chicken breast, prosciutto & sage – a complex symphony for the taste buds.
- Spaghetti Carbonara: eggs, cheese, pancetta & black pepper. Folklore abounds as to the origin of this dish. Some say derived from the Italian word carbonaro meaning charcoal burner – maybe made as a hearty meal for charcoal workers. Some say it is not a classic Italian dish but originated as a dish in the Second World War sought after by American soldiers when many Italians were eating eggs and bacon supplied by the troops. It seems more likely that it was an urban dish from Rome.
