Enjoying an Italian dish made with fresh pasta is a culinary experience like none other. Imagine biting into linguine that was just made that day—its smooth texture and tenderness is the perfect medium for the sauce it's paired with. Some Italian dishes are designed for fresh pasta (we'll get into that in a minute).
At Venezia, we pride ourselves on our handmade pasta. We use traditional pasta-making techniques—just like chefs do in Italy. Our dishes feature some of the best homemade pasta in the Boston area.
How Our Fresh Pasta is Made
First, we begin with high-quality flour, eggs, and olive oil. Then we knead the dough. Depending on
whether we're making gnocchi, fettuccine, or another type of pasta, it's either rolled by hand or pressed through a machine and cut. Then we pair the perfect fillings for our stuffed pasta dishes.
Dry pasta, on the other hand, is made with water and flour and dried. While dry pasta is good for some dishes, handmade pasta really highlights delicate sauces, and it tastes incredibly fresh and delicious. And, a true pasta Bolognese is just not the same without handmade fettuccine!
Our Favorite Dishes Featuring Handmade Pasta
While we love everything we make at Venezia, these handmade pasta dishes are customer favorites. Our Ravioli di Bufala features homemade ravioli filled with bufala ricotta, wild mushroom ragu, and shaved black truffles. You can find comfort in our Fettuccine Bolognese—a classic slow-cooked ragu of beef, pork, and lamb, served with homemade fettuccine. Or, indulge in our Pappardelle all’Aragosta, a dish that starts with handmade wide-ribbon pasta that's sautéed with scallop, shrimp, and lobster meat in a creamy pesto sauce—the sauce and pasta combination is pure perfection.
So, when you're looking to enjoy handmade pasta in Boston, stop by Venezia. We look forward to serving you.
