Lasagna Bolognese is back!

While our menu might be limited during the kitchen renovation we did bring back a very much asked for dish - Lasagna Bolognese.
Layers of fresh egg pasta, béchamel and our famous pork and beef Bolognese sauce, topped with plum tomatoes and mozzarella and finished in the oven. An Alforno classic!
And if you don’t remember this from before but have enjoyed our house-made tagliatelle bolognese over the years, rest assured you can enjoy the same great house-made pasta and our famous bolognese sauce in lasagna form.

Rain may keep us off the beach today, but all the rain we have been having has given us a bounty of wild mushrooms.

We have a new dessert and it needs a better name. Any ideas?

It is currently “Orange Spongecake” but it’s so much better than that. Fresh oranges, real Italian vanilla and olive oil.
Light but packed with flavor and seriously delicious!

Spaghetti all’Amatriciana
Derived from the small southern town of Amatrice, this classic Italian sauce is at the heart of Roman cuisine, eaten by everyone from the Holy See on down. Pancetta, onions, tomatoes and pecorino Romano are pulled together to transcend the simplicity of those ingredients. Since it’s still wintry in April, come enjoy this heartwarming dish.

Alforno bread on your holiday table!

Every loaf of our raved-about bread has gone through a three-day process of fermentation before being baked into the delicious, beautifully crusty loaves we’re famous for.

Must be reserved by Sunday 12/22 to pick up on Tuesday 12/24 by 2:30. Call the restaurant to reserve yours.
