The traditional Northern Italian cooking at Amarcord is based on recipes from Emilia-Romagna, considered one of the greatest food regions in Italy. This is not overly complicated or trendy cuisine. Come here for freshly made pasta or risotto teamed with lovingly prepared sauce. Think gnocchi with Italian sausage, fresh tomato, and basil; linguine with mussels, scallops, and tiger prawns; and veal scaloppine with lemon. Wines hail from Tuscany and California. The atmosphere is formal without being fussy.
