Made in-house using traditional methods, Italian Cafe Gelato Kitchen + Drinks’ recently added pasta dishes can be ordered in half or full trays that serve 10 or 20 people. Made from a proprietary dough recipe, the restaurant’s pizzas come in 12″ and 16″ size options, and customers can order up to 20 in each flavor.
Using fresh and regional ingredients, each dish has been carefully curated to provide an authentic Italian dining experience. “At Italian Cafe Gelato Kitchen + Drinks our mission is to provide a complete culinary experience that delights the senses and leaves you wanting more. We invite you to join us on a journey through the flavors of Italy,” said a spokesperson for the restaurant.
The salad selection includes the Ceserana containing Fontina cheese – a semisoft cow’s milk cheese that originates from the Valle d’Aosta region of northern Italy. Another option is the popular Caprese salad, which contains the highest quality of extra virgin olive oil available (EVOO) that meets strict standards set by the International Olive Council (IOC).
In Italian Cafe Gelato Kitchen + Drinks’ entree selection, customers can find marinaded or sauteed chicken in Marsala wine, white wine, or lemon caper sauce, or opt for classic Polpette meatballs in marinara sauce. Pasta dishes include gnocchi and stuffed ravioli in a variety of flavors and sauces.
The caterers offer specialty pizzas that are made from imported ingredients such as smoked scamorza. Meaning ‘beheaded’ in southern Italy, scamorza gets its name from its ripening process which involves hanging a string around the top third of the cheese. Speck IGP and Bovarina fior di latte mozzarella can be found amongst other imported meats and cheeses.
The seafood selection offers customers a choice of medleys, shrimp scampi, and lobster ravioli in fra diavolo (brother devil) spicy sauce. The kitchen also provides sandwich platters made with artisan bread.
Italian Cafe Gelato Kitchen + Drinks offers catering services for customers in and around Quincy. In addition, a full dining service, ice creams, and an Italian wine selection are available at the restaurant premises.
A satisfied customer said: “We had a wonderful time here today. We were a large party and mix of adults and kids and the staff were so incredibly accommodating and kind. Our favorites today were the pistachio ice cream and the hot white chocolate cappuccino. I would highly recommend them.”
