There are dozens of Italian restaurants along the Main Line. Some label themselves as trattorias. Others prefer to be known as ristorantes. Still others brand as cucinas. Many opt to market just as a restaurant, and use a proper name as a prefix or suffix. There are even a few that cook up fictitious names that “just sound Italian.” Case in point i...

It has been an incredible four months for me as Phoenix New Times' food editor. This city is a treasure trove of inventive, chef-driven restaurants — both high-end and hole-in-the-wall. And working for a progressive publication like New Times has allowed me to explore the Valley food scene beyond high-profile restaurant openings and really dig in t...

When presented with the prompt of “The Future of Food” for the 2017 EF Global Leadership Summit, I felt overwhelmed. There are so many issues within our current system, how can we approach all of these individual challenges in a way that completely reforms our way of thinking and, like Summit keynote speaker Raj Patel says, “change everything?” I w...

The experience the newly-opened Fratelli's Trattoria wants to deliver is "basically, home away from home," co-owner John Lluka said. The eatery, which he said specializes in northern Italian cuisine, opened about a month ago in the 8 Old Post Road space that Hopscotch restaurant used to occupy. It's a visible location in the heart of the village's...

It's New York-based pizza with a little Pueblo flare, "And-a-More." Angelo's Pizza Parlor And-a-More, which celebrated its 20-year anniversary on Aug. 14, has become one of the hallmark restaurants along the cool waters of the Historic Arkansas Riverwalk of Pueblo. The name of the popular pizza joint -- which claims to have served 1,642,018 pizzas...

A pistachio-flavoured ice cream from Spoleto was voted the world's best flavour at the Gelato World Tour Finals in Rimini yesterday. Alessandro Crispini of Spoleto's Gelateria Crispini uses three types of pistachio from Sicily - two from Bronte and one from the Agrigento area. "Many people may think pistachio is a banal flavour," the Umbrian winner...

There’s new equipment and a new look inside, but the same classic food Billerica residents have come to love will remain when Mangia Mangia Italian Kitchen reopens later this month. Mangia Mangia Italian Kitchen, located at 430 Boston Rd. in Billerica, has been closed since May 2, when an electrical fire in the kitchen burned overnight. The reopeni...

We only think so because most Italian restaurants catering to tourists tend to stick to familiar, safe dishes. I often ask friends about their favourite cuisine, and it’s surprising how many of them immediately answer: “Italian.” I, too, am very partial to good Italian food, and often gravitate towards an Italian restaurant in a town where I’m not...

It’s been a year of casual restaurant openings for Danny Meyer and Union Square Hospitality Group — places like Martina and Daily Provisions that are intended to feed more people, faster, for less money. Next up in the mix is Caffe Marchio, a new Roman-style stand-up coffee bar in the Redbury Hotel, opening on Monday. Like Union Square Cafe’s siste...

Madison has lost some noteworthy Italian restaurants in the 11 years that Osteria Papavero has been open: Nostrano, Peppino’s, Bellini, Gino’s. The last three were operated by members of one family of brothers, in a beautifully Italian kind of way. But Francesco Mangano’s Osteria Papavero has been there through it all, quietly seated in a commuter-...
