WHAT TO ORDER: Best-Kept Secret Recipes of Italianni’s

Rekindle your fondness for Italianni’s Best-Kept Secret Recipes

Growing up, eating at Italianni’s always meant there was a special occasion. It was a treat to order that big plates of pasta (I love the carbonara) and risotto. Now, I can rekindle the flame because Italianni’s is bringing back its crowd favorites (which I’m sure you have enjoyed too!)

Frutti Di Mare

It was my first time to try this delicious dish! This plate of goodness has yummy scallops, shrimps, Chilean mussels and clams – served with fettuccine pasta tossed in white wine and creamy white sauce. Sooo good!

Chicken Picatta

This dish offers a generous serving of chicken breast fillet seared with basil pesto topped with marinara sauce and served with spaghetti pasta tossed in creamy brown sauce and porcini mushrooms.

Shrimp Pomelo Salad

This healthy treat has grilled shrimps, fresh pomelo chunks, marinated cherry tomatos, black olives and crumbled feta cheese on a bed of mix greens tossed in honey vinaigrette dressing. Yum!

Eggplant Parmigiana

This has got to be my favorite dish that afternoon! So cheesy and flavorful. This one has deep fried eggplants covered with tomato cream sauce and topped with melted mozzarella cheese. Yumm!

Tomato and Truffle Gorgonzonla Mushroom Bruschetta

It looks petite but it’s quite filling because of the toppings. It uses the traditional Italian toasted crostini bread topped with fresh tomatos, truffle gorgonzola mushroom and a splash of truffle balsamic for a burst of flavor!
