Appetites craving an authentic taste of one of Italy’s most treasured dishes will be satisfied with a selection of pastas made using age-old Italian cooking techniques at Monno
Italy is just a bite away at artisanal Italian eatery, Monno Ristorante in Jumeirah this World Pasta Day on Wednesday 25th October, where appetites craving an authentic taste of one of the country’s most treasured dishes will be satisfied with a selection of pastas made using age-old Italian cooking techniques to ensure true Italian taste and texture.
From exclusively using San Marzano tomatoes to importing artisanal Italian cheeses, Monno’s pastas aim to deliver a nostalgic journey of Italy’s cherished culinary traditions. From the dough to the sauce, everything is made in-house at Monno using the all-Italian fresh ingredients, with different options available throughout the year in accordance with the seasonality of produce.
Shaped by hand, Monno’s must-try pastas include spaghetti alla chitarra dressed in an aromatic beurre blanc sauce with lemongrass and shallots, generously topped with Oscietra caviar, and the equally delicious ravioli al tartufo – homemade ravioli with buffalo ricotta filling and Parmigiano Reggiano sauce, finished with fresh truffle.
A modern take on the much-loved lasagna is a sure-fire crowd-pleaser, as is the gnocchi sorrentina in a homemade cherry tomato sauce with buffalo mozzarella, Parmigiano Reggiano and fresh basil, and Chef Federico Bartoli’s classic take on alfredo made with fusilloni in an artisanal butter with red cow Parmigiano Reggiano sauce and dried juniper.
Monno presents a wholesome and authentic Italian experience in a charming, casual and rustic space that welcomes all ages. Soothing music greets upon arrival, while a chilled-out neighbourhood vibe ensures a relaxing visit – whether it be for a leisurely lunch with family, or a romantic dinner date with a loved one, Monno is abundant with laidback idyllic moments for everyone this World Pasta Day.
Monno is located at 304 Al Wasl Road, Jumeirah 1, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and is open daily for lunch and dinner from 12pm – 12am.
