Wienstein & Gavino's offers the flavors and traditions of Italy. W&G has been around for 20 years in the food scene, but just like what they've stated on their site, they are constantly exploring new and creative dishes as trends evolve, which leads to the introduction of their gluten-free menu! As gluten-free is one of the trendiest diet,the restaurant created the menu for customers who prefer to follow a gluten free lifestyle. However, it is not designed for people who suffer from Celiac disease, therefore, there's a risk of cross-contamination or traces of gluten.
Flour + Water, locating in the Mission District, has been a popular spot ever since it opened its door in 2009. As its name, "flour" and "water" are the two basic ingredients (and eggs) for pasta making, hence it's an Italian restaurant. Chef Thomas McNaughton is definitely a pasta master. He had written a cookbook on the subject, which the signed copies are available for purchase in store. In this case, why not opt for a pasta tasting, featuring appetizer, 5 pastas, and a dessert, at the pasta master's restaurant?
Pesto Cheese Balls, we thought "why don't we make a pizza?" The dough that we used was pizza dough anyway, so it was perfect! The thought of making this pizza was definitely impromptus, but it turned out to be our favorite besides the Earl grey chocolate braid.
You can go wrong with finding a classic Italian restaurant within the Little Italy. Impasto, locating on Dante St., is known for serving one of the best pasta in town. Stefano Faita, a TV chef and cookbook author (who's family also owns the Quincaillerie Dante right across the restaurant), teamed up with Michele Forgione, who is the former executive chef at Osteria Venti. For the past few months before the holiday, I have heard my friends marvel about how amazing Impasto was. Therefore, I've been anticipated to give it a try.
