The buffalo mozzarella is imported from the Lupara family farm in Caserta, Italy, a third-generation , family-owned producer of creamy, fresh buffalo mozzarella. The Lupara family makes sure their water buffalos are happy by giving them humane treatment and natural feeds. Buffalo mozzarella adds a creaminess to pasta dishes and on pizza.
Romano’s Macaroni Grill has a long partnership with the Mancini family. Their third-generation, special reserve of first cold press, extra virgin olive oil is given to the Grill every year, and while other restaurants might not want to share it, the Grill places a bottle on every table. Olive oil is a traditional condiment into which you can dip your fresh bread.
The pasta at Macaroni Grill is imported from outside of Naples, Italy. Pastificio Guido Ferrara has been making pasta since 1883, using durum wheat and bronze cutting dies the old-fashioned way. Bronze dies makes a rough-textured pasta, just what's needed to hold onto delicious sauces.
