Black truffle is a tasteful precious ingredient (about 3,000 euro per kilo) we import from Italy, and it’s very used in northern and central regions of Italy for pasta mains and other recipes.

 

THE ONE AND ONLY AUTHENTIC BEEF LASAGNA: as our italian chef lived and work in restaurants kitchens for 3 years in Bologna, his beef lasagna is done the proper way! Don’t believe others saying “homemade lasagna”: ask them if they ever was in Bologna cooking in restaurants and learning how to do the AUTHENTIC beef Lasagna… Nothing more to add.

 

 

RISOTTO WITH “PEOCI”: a very typical recipe from our hometown Venice is risotto with squid ink and mussels (“peoci” in our dialect). Our chef do it relying on the venetians grandmothers cooking secrets and its mild taste is a must to have if available. Risotto is always to order for 2 persons minimum.
