We decided to take a look at how one of Macon’s most iconic restaurants got its start. This comes after an announcement was made that Natalia Del Basso Orsini sold Natalia's to Wes and Travis Griffith. In 1973, Natalia says she took a leap of faith. “I truly, I was crying all the time because America is not like Italy at all,” says Natalia. She imm...

Salse, sciroppi di zucchero, vinaigrette, vino e caffè sbarcheranno sugli scaffali della gdo americana di Walmart e Sam’s Club. Con la prima spedizione diventa così pienamente...

When Brooklyn-born Tony’s Pizzeria opened its doors in 1975, it served a completely different version of Bushwick than it does today. Over the course of the establishment’s storied existence, the demographics of the neighborhood have continually shifted. The company’s staff has also changed, as the Italian couple who opened Tony’s doors eventually...

Searching for an authentic Italian dinner without flying to Italy or driving to D.C.? Look no further than Tortino Mare, one of Prince William’s newest restaurants, which serves hand-cut pasta, gourmet pizza and artistic desserts almost too beautiful to eat. Located in Manassas Park, Tortino Mare is away from the hustle and bustle in a small strip...

Located in a tiny strip-mall on Memphis Avenue, Aldo's isn't the kind of restaurant that makes you stop and take notice from the outside. Step inside, and it's another story.

The undulating landscape of Italy’s southeastern terrain—the proverbial heel of the boot—has long been overlooked by the armies of tourists that make their seasonal invasions of Campania, Tuscany, Piedmont, and the Veneto. Yet this neglect may have been a boon for the people of this predominantly agricultural region who for millennia received an ab...

In the old days, let’s say until the 50s or even the 60s, my mother tells me that they made their own fresh pasta at home every day. Quite a job, I should say! But in the past being a “matri ri famigghia” (mother of the family) or as we say now, a homemaker, was a very hard task! Of course, at the time, middle class homes were smaller without fancy...
