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.

Involtini di carne alla romana

From Checchino, today in its fifth generation, the cuisine is still faithful to its origins and it couldn’t be any other way. The historic menu is worth announcing: zampi salad, rigatoni con pajata, bucatini alla gricia, coda alla vaccinara, cicoria di campo in padella, seasoned pecorino, ricotta cake. Just like a plate of Buon Ricordo, though, these roulades prepared with slices of beef and handful of celery, carrots, and bacon, with one leaf of penny royal, mean pleasant seasonal variations.
