Roma Regional Dinner 29th August

Posted by adam on August 21, 2017

Our Roma regional dinner sees us take on Palatino at their own game and we think we've well and truly nailed the menu for this one with stacks of great dishes to try.

Cacio e pepe - made with Tellicherry pepper - and our version of Bucatini all'amatriciana both feature and we've got a great selection of antipasti too with grilled artichokes, suppli (mini arancini) and an intriguing mini Porchetta amongst other things.

Mains include Veal saltimbocca cooked with pancetta & Marsala wine and the classic dish of Gnochhi alla Romana - if you haven't tried this before you really should.  

Desserts will be plentiful and include those fantastic Maritozzi buns alongside ice-creams and a superb baked ricotta tart - all available to share across the table.

As always, it's just £28 for all four courses of food.

For bookings please give us a call on 020 7249 9081 or book online here

Bank Holiday "Pastathon" with Hot Dinners

Posted by adam on August 15, 2017

Wondering what to do after Negroni Nights this Bank Holiday?

How about an all-day 'pastathon'  

We've teamed up with Hot Dinners and our pals at Palatino to put on a pasta feast that shouldn't be missed. There'll be two pastas from Palatino (closed on the bank holiday) and three from us here at Rotorino HQ.

Everyone who comes will get to try all five pastas on the menu. 

The ticket price is just £25 (plus booking fee) and includes a glass of Prosecco, a load of antipasta to share and then all five plates of pasta.

We've got a Bucatini all'amatriciana and the cacio e pepe from Palatino which drove Giles Coren to write: "From nowhere came a silkiness, a depth, a poetry that I have never encountered in a bowl of spaghetti before." 

We're starting from 12pm and will go on until late with the Hot Dinners team on-hand to chat restauarnts throughout the day

  • Antipasti to share: including arancini, bruschetta, olives and a little aqua sale.
  • Puttanesca 
  • Bucatini amatriciana    
  • Cacio e pepe
  • Ziti al forno
  • Pesto maltagliati

When: Monday 28 August 2017 from midday

TICKETS are available online at Design My Night. The £25 ticket (plus booking fee) gets you a welcome drink and all the food.

You can also call 020 7249 9081 and we'll book you in.

See you there.
