From Monday 7 September to Sunday 18 October, Spaghetti House will be serving up two classic, Italian regional dishes re-interpreted with a twist. Amatriciana – a sauce usually made with pancetta, chilli and pecorino, is given a coastal touch and presented as Caserecce Amatriciana di Mare (caserecce pasta with sautéed palourde clams, Shetland mussels, tiger prawns, calamari & pancetta, tomato, garlic, red chilli and parsley). Available at £15.95 for a single portion of at £25 for two to share. Fettuccine con Polpettine – the classic pasta with meatballs, is glammed up with venison to become Fettuccine con Polpettine di Cervo – with seasonal wild mushrooms, a rich tomato & game sauce and drizzled with truffle oil. This dish is available at £13.75 for a single portion or at £20 for two to share.
From September to November, guests visiting Spaghetti House will also be able to enter a competition to ‘Win a 3 Day Break in Puglia’ with a visit to the renowned Antinori’s Tormaresca winery in the Castel del Monte area. A unique piece of medieval military architecture, Castel del Monte is a blend of elements from classical antiquity, the Islamic Orient and north European Cistercian Gothic, a true ‘must see’ place. The break for two people includes flights from London to Bari, a hired car, a personalised wine tasting at the Tormaresca winery and a stay at the Hotel Covo dei Saraceni on the stunning Polignano al Mare coast.
In the run up to the celebrations, Spaghetti House has been inviting guests, past and present, to send their comments, pictures and memories over the last six decades by logging into a dedicated page on their website: www.spaghettihouse.co.uk/memories
