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.

Cinta Senese grigliata con la sua salciccia

Cinta is a mammal of the pig family depicted in the Effetti del Buon Governo fresco at Palazzo Comunale – Town Hall Palace. The cinta coat is grey with a white stripe. Its pork meat and cold meat have an incomparable taste. This recipe conjures up the images of the good old days – namely a specific pig day - when the cinta marinade used to be barbequed and served with a sort of sausage and croutons paired with a simple green salad and a red table wine to enhance its taste.
