Gnocchi on the 29th

The ritual of eating gnocchi on the 29th originated in the eighth century when a young Pantaleon, a doctor who converted to Christianity, wandered through northern Italy. Hungry and ragged, he arrived to some peasants’ home and asked for some food. They invited him to his table and shared with him the seven gnocchis they had. Gratefully, Pantaleon said goodbye wishing them "a year of abundance and prosperity" . Afterwards the peasant woman found gold coins under the table.

The tradition then began of eating gnocchi on the 29th, putting some money under the plate, putting aside 7 gnocchi and making 7 wishes.

Come celebrate this tradition and enjoy the gnocchis our signature dish.
