    Image Upload 1
    • Semolina spaghetti cooked in the style of Nadia Santini, who runs a 3 Star Michelin restaurant called "Dal Pescatore", in Lombardia. The tomato sauce is made simply from EVOO, one garlic clove and her homegrown tomatoes.
    • The pasta was cooked in salt water for about 2 minutes and then thrown into the sauce to cook completely.
    • Our spaghetti will follow this process. The Spaghetti will be finished in the sauce and then topped with Parmigiano-Reggiano, basil and Primolio olive oil.
    • The sauce is made from whole peeled San Marzano tomatoes, shaved garlic, basil, olive oil, stock, white wine, boiling water from the pasta and hand-crushed tomatoes, and blended for about 18 minutes until it’s completely smooth.
    • Notes: No butter in the sauce — only olive oil, as customary in Southern Italy.
  2. Bombolotti Carbonara - ridged tube pasta, guanciale, natural egg, cracked black pepper, pecorino Romano $25
    • Bombolotti are similar to rigatoni.
    • For the sauce, we first saute the guanciale and we add the egg yolks, which have been whisked in a bowl with pasta water slowly poured over it, to emulsify it. Then we whip in Pecorino Romano, Parmigiano Reggiano and pepper.
    • We then garnish with Parmigiano Reggiano and black pepper.
    • This is a typical Roman dish.
  3. Gnocchi - potato dumpling, wild Florida boar ragu, Tuscan red wine $26

    • Small potato dumplings made by running baked potato and rised into a fine mill with egg yolk, Parmigiano Reggiano, 00 flour and sea salt.
    • The wild Florida boar is from the Everglades region. We marinate the boar shoulder in Tuscan red wine, then we sear it.
    • We then strain the leftover wine and add Mirepoix to the pan, deglaze it with more red wine, and add San Marzano tomatoes and veal stock.
    • Then, we shred the boar shoulder which has taken a total of 6 hours to cook.
    • Add the boar to the sauce and dumplings and finish with butter and Parmigiano Reggiano.

    • Notes: Crescenza cheese is made from cow’s milk. It’s semi-soft and gooey.
