    We are in the 1950s and 60s, when pasta became the main food on Italian tables: bucatini, maccheroni, long as it was pasta, always served with tomato sauce.

    In this context, Italian cinema reached its peak, along with the vision of the Bel Paese. During this time, Pietro Germi's two most successful films were released in Italy, while in America, a unique perception of "Italianness" emerged.

    The iconic dish overseas became "spaghetti meatballs," which we offer you as tradition dictates, with the components cooked separately.

    Our cooking class features egg spaghetti with tomato sauce and meatballs, aiming to recreate the atmosphere of Italy from those years at the table.

    I devote myself with passion to traditional regional cooking, embracing recipes from Emilia, Tuscany, and Lazio, without shying away from culinary innovation and exploration. I pay close attention to the seasonality of ingredients and the origins of raw materials, favoring locally-sourced products. Equipped with excellent communication skills, I place particular emphasis on the story behind every dish, as well as on hospitality and welcoming my guests.
