For truly authentic Italian cuisine, it’s all about the ingredients…

Don’t forget that the entire wine list is half-priced every Tuesday, lunch and dinner, through April!

When it comes to authentic Italian cuisine, ingredients are what make ALL the difference.

That’s why Tony Vallone selects his San Marzano tomatoes in Italy and has them shipped here especially for his restaurants.

That’s why he imports top Neapolitan “OO” flour for his pizza and homemade pasta.

The same holds for his cold-pressed Sicilian extra-virgin olive oil, his Sicilian sea salt, and even the Italian bottled mineral water that he brings in to make his legendary signature pasta dishes (all made in-house).

Italian proverbs 101: The first in a new series of proverbs on food and wine

click here for our current wine list

In Italian, they say: Nella botte piccola ci sta il vin buono.

In other words: Good wine comes in small barrels.

It’s kind of like the English expression: Good things come in small packages.

But it also reflects the fact that some of the best wines in the world are made in smaller barrels as opposed to larger ones.

Dessert wines, in particular, once coveted as the best wines, are almost always aged in small barrels (and that’s probably where the saying comes from).

This is the first in our series of posts on Italian proverbs relating to food and wine. Stay tuned for more!
