Al Bacio: a stomach’s tour of Italy — West Hollywood
Fresh-Made Maccheroni topped w/Rolled Beef & Pecorino
Dreaming of going to Italy, but can’t get your bags packed just yet? Then grab some friends and reserve the special room for an authentic old country feast at Al Bacio in West Hollywood.
Chef Christian Simionato invited us to come check out their new family-style dining experience. Taking us on a journey around the country, he brought truly Italian dishes to life with farm-to-table fresh ingredients. While we wined and dined, Chef Christian taught us all about growing food, making wine, and curing meats.
The menu changes depending on what’s fresh, but given his love for the culinary traditions of his home country, Chef Christian will not be steering you wrong. Here’s how our trek went down…
Chef Christian Simionato cuts his great in-house cured meats. The prosciutto in particular was pretty amazing.
Parmesan Cheese Tortellini, Chicken Consamme. You can really taste the time and love that goes into this fresh-made pasta.
Spit Roasted Quail & Squab, Glazed Cipollini, Roasted Potatoes
Selection of awesome Italian cheeses
Neopolitan Rum Cake
Bonet al Cioccolato e Amaretti, Gelato Fior Di Latte
I don’t know if this will be there when you go, but if it is, you won’t be sorry. Creamy and de-freaking-licious.
To reserve this special room for yourself, give Il Bacio a call.
