Who doesn’t adore spaghetti messily twisted around a fork, lovingly folded parcels of ravioli, and stretchy, hot, pizza cheese sticking to your chin? How about honest, handmade pasta, and sun-warmed ingredients like tomatoes and herbs? And don’t forget the robust red vino.
Italian food is generous, rich and it warms the heart and soul.
