Buon Ricordo specialities

Each Buon Ricordo restaurant creates a recipe that perfectly represents its local tradition and local produce as the restaurant’s signature dish. This option is on the menu year round and is also represented on the restaurant’s special ceramic plate, which is presented as a gift to customers who choose it.

Note: Buon Ricordo restaurants are proud of their speciality recipes inspired by local traditions and typically Italian ingredients, products and methods of cooking. Unfortunately they are difficult to translate accurately and explain to anyone who does not know Italy and its regional culinary traditions well and even more difficult to cook successfully without the original ingredients. So it has been decided to leave the recipes on this site and in our recipe books in Italian, however we have included a brief description in English of the specialities on each restaurant’s page.

Aletta di vitello al forno con lardo fresco, rosmarino e flan di zucchine

This dish handed down for three generations is a sort of gastronomic memento based on the family traditions and on the quality of the fresh products from the Varese Valley. Venanzio, a long-experienced chef, has long worked in Italy and abroad. Like his grandfather, he is highly skilled. His top-level cuisine offers products in season, from asparagus to pumpkin, from mushrooms to truffles, and from pork to bolliti.
