Pasta is easily one of the most versatile and satisfying comfort foods. It can be enjoyed in various forms and infused with flavors from around the world. Therefore, in honor of National Pasta Day on October 17th, we’ve compiled a list of delicious dishes and where to find them at Aventura Mall. Mangia bene!
Known for its casual yet romantic atmosphere and mouthwatering parmesan wheel dining experience, Divieto features a menu of thoughtfully conceived pasta entrées, such as the Frutti di Mare, which Executive Chef Luis Zavala recommends pairing with red wine.
“Although it has been known that seafood dishes are paired with white wines, a young, fruity varietal of red grapes will balance acidic, garlic-rich dishes like Frutti di Mare,” Zavala noted. “The dish goes well with Carparzo Brunello Di Montalcino, a bright red from Tuscany with hints of cherries and raspberries.”
Elegant, chic and festive, Serafina offers an unmatched ambiance and one-of-a-kind, homemade pasta dishes ranging from rustic to elaborate.
The Linguine alle Vongole Veraci, for instance, includes baby clams and fresh tomatoes in a white wine and garlic sauce. It’s a light yet satisfying specialty that tastes like it’s straight from nona’s kitchen.
While Greek cuisine may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re craving pasta, it’s worth noting both Italian and Greek cuisines have some tasty overlaps—pasta included. The recently opened Estiatorio Ornos represents the first-ever Greek restaurant concept from award-winning Chef Michael Mina and Las Vegas’ dynamic duo Chef Girair “Jerry” Goumroian and Chef Nikolaos Georgousis.
The restaurant features South Florida’s first-ever fish sommelier, who sources the freshest fish to be delivered daily from both the Agean sea and Florida’s surrounding waters. Diners will experience this freshness firsthand when they try the restaurant’s Lobster Pasta, which is enhanced by fresh tomatoes, basil and aromatic Greek brandy.
Bella Luna offers an inviting, classically Italian atmosphere and an extensive menu of pasta dishes that will make you feel innamorato.
A savory crowd favorite the restaurant promises is irresistible, the Fussile al Telefono blends creamy mozzarella with bright, tangy pecorino romano cheese.
The mission of Rosalia is simple: Provide the freshest ingredients in an elegant setting that is ideal for both celebrations and spending quality time with friends and family.
And as any Italian will affirm, nothing says “famiglia” like the classic Spaghetti con Polpete. Rosalia’s famous meatballs and authentic tomato sauce will make you feel right at home.
Last but certainly not least, CVI.CHE 105 is a Miami favorite for its unconventional yet delectable “gastronomic experiences.” Even so, some may be surprised to learn the restaurant offers Peruvian takes on pasta.
“Our Peruvian cuisine has many influences,” noted Head Chef Juan Chipoco. “This allows us to deconstruct, adapt and come up with new creations based on many dishes, ingredients or textures that we currently use.”
With a palate of flavors that will have your tastebuds dancing, the Linguini 105 is a must-try. It features a delicious Huancaína sauce—often used over potatoes in Peruvian cuisine. In this dish, however, the spicy, queso fresco-based sauce adds a creamy kick to juicy skirt steak and jumbo shrimp.
