Italian food is less about a style of cooking and more about a passion for it. Who but the nation that practically invented the term “love” could create such amazing dishes with something as humble as a tomato? It has been said if you want to know why God gave you a nose, order something with fresh basil pesto on it.
Italian dishes are seasonal. Some gastronomes wait a whole year to make their greatest Italian salads from baby rocket leaves dressed with the year’s first olive oil pressings. Try it just once and you’ll understand why it’s worth the wait.
The preparation of traditional Italian food can’t be hurried neither can its enjoyment. So what better way to enjoy it than with both hands or swirled to luscious capacity around a fork. Any great chef will tell you the messier the tablecloth the more they know you’ve truly enjoyed your Italian pizza and pasta.
The greatest compliment we’ve ever received was from a couple who said a visit to Col’Cacchio pizzeria is like a trip to Italy without the airfare. It could be because we’re obsessed with quality and only use the freshest ingredients. Or that we follow authentic Italian recipes and are always on the lookout for new ones. The truth is; we have a secret ingredient. Passion. You’ll find it in everything we serve.
