Most comfort foods are covered in cheese and with the cold weather, New Englanders are definitely seeking some heavier meals. At Trattoria Il Panino, we provide authentic Italian food with the option for a lighter dish or a cheesy meal. Today, we are going to explore some of our delicious homemade dinners that include fresh cheese.
Originating in Rome, Carbonara includes egg, cheese and Italian pancetta. This is a traditional Italian dish for those who want something slightly unique from the standard pasta dish. With a nice glass of our red wine from the vault, you’ll feel like you’re in a quaint, Tuscan village!
Ravioli di Ricotta
First, let’s discuss the San Marzano sauce which often has our customers coming back for more. The tomatoes used in this sauce are grown from the volcanic soil in Italy and they’re much sweeter than they are acidic. This sauce poured over Ricotta Cheese Raviolis is a match made in heaven. Our chef has made sure to create the perfect blend of ricotta cheese and San Marzano sauce.
Gnocchi alla Sorrentina
Our homemade dumplings are stuffed with potatoes and topped with mozzarella and basil. The Gnocchi alla Sorrentina has all the carbs you need to stay warm this winter! We can all agree that potatoes with melted cheese is an unbelievable savory treat. At Trattoria Il Panino we also concur that cheese and potatoes are an amazing combination. Instead of stuffing a baked potato with savory toppings, come to the best Italian restaurant in the North End and have our Gnocchi. You’ll enjoy the combination of mozzarella cheese, dumpling and potato!
We use imported mozzarella straight from Italy, providing our customers with the best possible ingredients. There are plenty of chicken and cheese dishes available, but nothing beats our Chicken Parmigiana. Stop in and try our breaded chicken, topped with mozzarella and marinara, over penne.
