AMAZING
1st CAVATELLI WITH HOT SAUSAGE AND SAGE BUTTER
Frankies 457 Spuntino, New York
Cavatelli with hot sausage in sage butter. Name a better pasta dish in this great city. I'll wait... #pasta #cavatelli
2nd BALANZONE WITH BLACK TRUFFLE AND CRISPY PROSCIUTTO
La Taverna Di Roberto, Bologna
Green pasta parcels, black truffle, crispy prosciutto shards and parmesan. Fantastic combination.
3rd PICI CACIO & PEPE
Padella, London
Pici cacio & pepe. Chewy, noodle-like worms in a sublime peppery cheese sauce. Delicious šŸ‘Œ
4th SPAGHETTI CARBONARA
Di Beppe Restaurant, Vancouver
Authentic carbonara, made with the awesome foursome: guanciale, pecorino, egg yolk and black pepper šŸ˜‹šŸ‡®šŸ‡¹
5th RAVIOLI
Skopik & Lohn, Wien
Wild boar ravioli with seared mushroom on a cream sauce of bacon and sun-dried tomato. My favourite dish of the night.
6th TORTELLONI WITH SAGE BUTTER
Sfoglia Rina, Bologna
Probably the best tortelloni I've had. Filled with soft cheese and in a beautiful sage butter (one of my favourite sauces for any pasta)
7th PAPPARDELLE WITH PORCINI
CaffĆØ Bona LĆØ, Bologna
Just great pasta with a flavour packed porcini cream and parmigiana. So good.
8th CARBONARA
Emilia's Crafted Pasta (St. Katharine Docks), London
Wonderful bucatini carbonara with crispy pancetta (smoked salmon also on the menu as an option)
9th FUZI WITH BLACK TRUFFLE, MUSHROOM AND PROSCIUTTO
Trattoria Carmen, Dubrovnik
The most truffle-laden pasta I've tasted. Creamy, with savoury mushroom and lots of prosciutto (almost too much) adding to this flavour bomb of a dish. Big portion, big flavour. Superb.
10th FUZI WITH MUSHROOM AND TRUFFLE
Zuzori, Dubrovnik
Very well-balanced dish, blending truffle, mushrooms and dried cepes with traditional Istrian fuzi pasta.
11th PAPPARDELLE IN TRUFFLE & DUCK SAUCE
Trattoria ZĆ  ZĆ , Firenze
Can't go wrong with pappardelle in any rich sauce and this is no exception. Tasty plate that works for both lunch and dinner.
12th MEZZE MANICHE WITH RAGU
Tandem Ristorante, Napoli
9hr ragu that was loaded with sweet tomatoes, red wine and beefy goodness. Perfect pasta shape to get huge chunks of the sauce with every bite. Bellissimo! šŸ‡®šŸ‡¹
13th MEZZE MANICHE ALLA GENEVESE
Tandem Ristorante, Napoli
A restaurant dedicated to slow-cooked ragu was always going to knock it out of the park. This tomato-free Genevese was hearty and demolished in minutes šŸ˜‹
14th BEEF SHIN RAGU
Padella, London
Pappadelle with 8hr Dexter beef shin ragu. So good šŸ‘Œ
15th CACIO E PEPE
Emilia's Crafted Pasta (St. Katharine Docks), London
Delicious truffle cacio e pepe using freshly made caserecce
16th TORTELLINI IN BRODO
Sfoglia Rina, Bologna
Fabulous little parcels in a delightful clear broth. Each mouthful is a joy.
17th TORTELLINI IN BRODO
Zerocinquantello, Bologna
Perfect comfort food on a cold and wet evening in Bologna
18th RAVIOLI WITH MUSHROOM CREAM AND TRUFFLE
Al Cairoli, Ravenna
Beautifully plated, classic flavours, and a really enjoyable dish.
19th TORTELLINI VERDE IN SAGE BUTTER
Zerocinquantello, Bologna
Veggie friendly tortellini in a rich butter sauce with a little sage coming through. Moreish.
REALLY GOOD
20th CACIO E PEPE
Pastaio Carnaby, London
Bucatini cacio e pepe šŸ˜šŸšŸ‡®šŸ‡¹ šŸ˜‹šŸ‘ŒšŸ»
21st PENNE WITH MUSHROOM AND BACON
La Cantinaccia del Popolo, Sorrento
Really good penne, with funghi and bacon. Onion and garlic give it a nice base and there loads of cheesy sauce (ask the waiter, since it's a tomato sauce on the menu). Delicious šŸ˜‹
22nd KARAMELLISIERTE KRAUTFLECKERL
Glacis Beisl, Wien
Pasta with caramelised cabbage doesn't sound like much but this is surprisingly good. Firm al dente bite and a sweet contrast in the cabbage with a hint of caraway seed spice.
23rd TAGLIATELLE CON RAGƙ ALLA BOLOGNESE
Sfoglia Rina, Bologna
Bolognese in Bologna - you can't leave town without having it! This was really good but for me didn't have that extra something to make it outstanding.
24th GRAMIGNA WITH SALSICCIA
Sfoglia Rina, Bologna
Big pot of gramigna with ground sausage. Would like this pasta more if the sauce was richer as the meat is a bit dry
25th CACIO E PEPE
Le 5 Terre, London
Could have had more pepper but beautifully creamy and a nice portion
26th FETTUCCINE CARBONARA
Topolino's, St Kilda
Not a traditional recipe but very creamy and good nonetheless. Bonus points for a super generous portion šŸ˜‹
27th CANNELLONI RICOTTA E SPINACI
o Parrucchiano La Favorita, Sorrento
This restaurant invented cannelloni. So it goes without saying they know what they're doing. This is an off-menu variant, made without the usual tomato sauce. The spinach and ricotta filling was very good - not wet nor bland. And there's a generous amount of parmegiana on the table to season/indulge yourself šŸ‘ŒšŸ»šŸ˜‹šŸ‡®šŸ‡¹
28th POLPO PACCHERI
o Parrucchiano La Favorita, Sorrento
Lovely paccheri (giant hoops) with baby octopus in a sweet tomato sauce. Pasta was al dente and the octopus, one of my favourite sea foods) was soft but still familiarly chewy šŸ‘šŸ»šŸ˜‹
29th TORTELLINI IN CREMA DI PARMIGIANO
Castiglione Ristorante Pizzeria, Bologna
Bite-sized tortellini in parmesan basket, with a parmesan cream, topped with more parmesan. All the cheese!
30th FETTUCCINE BOLOGNESE
Farelli's Trattoria, Queenstown
Slow braised pork and beef cheek Bolognese with a nicely cooked al dente, freshly made fettuccine. Decent sized portion as well.
