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.

Orecchiette aragosta con astice, pomodoro fresco e rucola

Orecchiette is small handmade pasta characteristic of Puglia cuisine. The sauce to pair with is prepared tossing astice, fresh small tomatoes, basil, and rocket in a pan. The final touch is a generous dash of the best extra-virgin olive oil. As to wine, according to guests’ taste our tip is a full-bodied white wine or a rosé that well accompany this dish.
