'Calamari fritti' - Fried calamari is one of the most classic summer seafood dishes in Italy: Golden rings people eagerly squeeze lemon wedges over, and eat quickly for fear that they'll get less than their share of. ($15)

'Rotolo' - This is a typical Tuscan dish coming from an old peasant tradition. This pasta roll is very popular in Tuscany due to the high quality of ricotta they produce. The Lasagna sheet is filled with pumpkin, spinach and ricotta which is then rolled, sliced and lightly pan fried with burnt butter, sage and topped off with a sprinkle of parmesan. A perfect vegetarian option. ($15)

'Bucatini all'Amatriciana' - This is a zesty pasta dish commonly associated with Lazio and Rome, but is actually from the town of Amatrice, which used to be just over the border into the Abruzzo. It's a
hollow spaghetti made with a rich tomato based sauce, chilli, garlic, onion, crispy pancetta and pecorino cheese. ($24)
