Riviera Focacceria Italiana is proud to introduce to South Florida the long tradition of exceptional food from the Italian region of Liguria. Riviera Focacceria Italiana is proud to introduce to you, within many other incredible dishes, the unique Focaccia Cheese… two layers of incredibly thin dough filled with imported stracchino cheese, a cheese so important in the production of these delicate balanced dishes that we will air freight it weekly from Italy but be aware, once you’ll try the Focaccia Cheese… your world will never be the same!
Fresh homemade daily pastas are another big part of our menu, introducing within others the iconic Pansoti, an homemade dumpling filled with spinach, ricotta cheese, chards and spices and than served with a delicate walnut sauce!
Last but not least… the pesto sauce. You will be able to experience the real pesto alla Genovese, the sophisticated but humble balance of local organic sweet basil, pine nuts, parmigiano cheese and Ligurian extra virgin olive oil served on thinly homemade handkerchief style pasta… the Mandilli.
