“Al Dente" as a way of life



Our recipes are the recipes of the Italian Tradition. Our sauces are cooked daily in the only way possible: from fresh tomatoes, slow cooked. The only way to get a fresh, light and flavorful sauce. We follow regional and national traditions of preparing, cooking and serving dishes: whatever you order, it will be presented as in Italy!

Everything is fresh and cooked to the order: pasta is cooked al dente. So, be patience while we prepare your dish: if you want you can call it slow food, but for us it's the Italian way to cook!


We offer a unique selection of amazing Italian Wines. From Piedmont to Apulia, our wines are the best pairing to our dishes. From the most famous like Chianti and Pinot Grigio, to the less known Primitivo and Roero Arneis, all of them are high-quality wine. The perfect match to complete your foodie Italian experience.


Quality food starts from quality ingredients.

Only the best high-quality ingredients arrive to our kitchen. We use imported ingredients from Italy to guarantee the authenticity of our recipes and of your experience. Our vegetables are organic and local. Our pasta is homemade daily.


It's all about hospitality, and we have it in our blood. Our goal is to provide you the best 360° experience, amazing food, great wines and wonderful time, in a warm and friendly ambience. Feel yourself comfortable, relax and enjoy the experience: you are entering Italy!
