I walked into the newly renovated Wellesley Hills Papa Razzi at summer’s end and was greeted by Spring. The restaurant has undergone many changes, but the life-sized classical stone statue the staff says everyone calls “Spring” remains. Looking like a transplanted divine patroness of an Italianate garden, she survived the construction bustle to con...

Ciao from Rome, welcome to the #107 magazine of We the Italians! Summer is ending, everybody came back to work here in Italy and joined us, who never stop, never cease to explore and promote Italy in/to/for the US. It's still early for details, and we’ve got a lot of work to do, but I'm glad to announce that just yesterday we signed an important ag...

The first cooperative dairy in the Kingdom of Italy was established in Canale d’Agordo in 1872.The idea of grouping small local farmers to process their milk in a single cheese dairy, thereby reducing production c...

This delicious salad celebrates Italy with its aroma and flavor. It is a perfect vegetarian dish that you can easily take to work or on a picnic. Lentils have a marvelous nutritional profile: whilst 30% of its energy comes from protein, the remainder is primarily a high-quality resistant starch, a carbohydrate which passes the length of the gastroi...

Adalina could open as soon as next week on Northside Parkway, a representative for the Italian restaurant confirms. They’ve been teasing followers on Instagram and Facebook with the news. The restaurant, owned by Dennis Lange (Five Seasons Brewing Co.), is located at the Post Riverside apartment complex in the former River Room space. Adalina’s men...

"We think it is just a phenomenal product," said local franchisee John David. "We are excited to fill a very large demand." The Pennsylvania-based franchise is known for its flavored Italian...

The first time I had tasted one of Viola’s famous subs was at the summer's Galbani Italian Heritage Festival. Since then, I have already visited its brick-and-mortar location in Niagara Falls for more of Viola's delicious sandwiches loaded with tangy dressing, mild cheese and thinly sliced steak. The atmosphere of the restaurant is extremely casual...

Giulio Caperchi, 32, was born and raised in Rome, a city built upon seven hills. When he and his wife, Carol, 33, opened a pasta business here in a Melrose commercial kitchen, it seemed fitting to name their company Seven Hills Pasta Co. While most artisan pasta makers produce only fresh pasta, Caperchi crafts dried pasta made the old-fashioned way...

Real Southern banana pudding made with Nilla Wafers is certainly a truly worthwhile culinary experience, but outside of this lone outlier, the world of pudding doesn’t necessarily pose too strong of a draw for those whose ages have long since crept into the double digits. The idea of pudding conjures up images of little boxes of chocolate, vanilla...

Luigi’s Ristorante Italiano of Nebraska City has been open for a little over a month at Nebraska City’s historic train depot at 725 S. 6th St. And customer reviews have been fantastic. Yelp reviewers have rated the eatery in the four and five star range. Nebraska Citians had been hoping for a tennant at the depot. The location was closed for a long...
