As I type this article, I wish I had some of their Agnolotti Di Aragosta in front of me… it's handmade on premises and is stuffed agnolotti with lobster, buffalo ricotta & mozzarella, butter prawns & tomato confit sauce. I also want to demolish a bowl of Gnocchi Bolognese handmade on premise's potato dumplings in traditional Bolognese meat sauce.
