Tradition with creativity
We are sometimes asked how one can taste the value and quality of a traditional dish without being predictable. The answer is in our traditional Bologna principle, from which we build everything else. Bologna is some kind of crossroads of all Italian subcultures, not only gastronomical ones, because it is a welcoming, curious and caring city. This translates in the fact that you can taste other parts of Italy in the first courses dressings, through variations, new ingredients and presentations, just as in fashion or in music.
The choice of only having fresh pasta is essential for us. The cooking point is just as crucial and in it we hold our little secret. The tagliatella is nicely rough and there are of course no shortcuts: only the rolling pin is used. Tradition is the starting point every single day, so that the tagliatelle at Al Pappagallo are truly unique. At the same time, we want to stimulate our guests with creative interpretations and reinterpretations that allow us to find something new even in the most traditional dishes. Our choice of absolute loyalty tradition is still in constant evolution.
