Convito Café & Market

The Ides of March 5 DAY SALE

as celebrated by Convito Cafe & Market,
established north shore institution since 1980

"Et tu, Brute?" are the three most famous words uttered in literature.
Both Caesar and Brutus loved Rome but because of arrogance and hubris
one man conspired against the other. And we all know the outcome!

Convito chooses to celebrate historic Rome
the grand city, the cradle of civilization - not the violence.

Roman Dinner Specials at a Discounted Price

Gnocchi alla Romana: semolina gnocchi baked with butter & parmesan
The word for gnocchi may derive from the Italian word nocchio meaning a knot
in the wood. It has been a traditional type of Italian pasta since Roman times.
Each area has developed their own kind of gnocchi.

Penne al Amatriciana: succulent bacon and tomato sauce
The invention of the first tomato sauces dates back to the late 18th century.
The Amatriciana recipe became increasingly famous in Rome in the 19th
and 20th centuries rapidly thought of as a classic of Roman cuisine.
Originated in the nearby town of Amatrice.

Saltimbocca alla Romana: chicken with prosciutto & sage
Saltimbocca literary means "jumps in the mouth". Unifying the local flavors
of the region our version of the dish combines butter, white wine, chicken breast,
prosciutto & sage – a complex symphony for the taste buds.

Spaghetti Carbonara: eggs, cheese, pancetta & black pepper
Folklore abounds as to the origin of this dish. Some say derived from
the Italian word carbonaro meaning charcoal burner – maybe made
as a hearty meal for charcoal workers. Some say it is not a classic Italian
dish but originated as a dish in the Second World War sought after by
American soldiers when many Italians were eating eggs and bacon supplied
by the troops. It seems more likely that it was an urban dish from Rome.
