The famous pasta making grandma from I Trulli and Ristoro del Cinghiale is now out on her own with the namesake Nonna Dora’s!
This place is serving up lots of favorites from Ristoro and I Trulli, like the wild boar pappardelle and their famous negronis.
My wife and I started with some meats and cheeses, fried cuttlefish, octopus salad, and meatballs.
All of this was delicious, but our favorite was the octopus.
We dug into two pasta dishes. First, a really fresh spring greens special dish, which featured super thick citarra style spaghetti.
It has leeks, spring onions, fiddlehead ferns, asparagus, ramps, and fava beans.
Then, burnt wheat pasta with confit duck! So good.
Finished off the meal with a tart and some spumoni.
I can’t wait to come back here again for more pasta dishes.
