Lunch Time! Most Popular Italian Lunch Dishes in 2021

Most people would agree that indulging in an authentic Italian lunch dish is the perfect way to spend an afternoon.

Italian food is best enjoyed morning, noon, and night. Well, most Italians actually eat their lunch or il pranzo, promptly at 1:00 pm each day, not noon, but a midday meal can be enjoyed any time during the afternoon. In true Italian fashion, lunch is often savored for an hour or more. You can enjoy an authentic Italian lunch experience by enjoying any one of the dishes at our Farmington and Holladay locations.

Take a look at some of our most popular lunchtime options below.

Antipasti Dishes

The best way to enjoy your lunch is to start with a mouthwatering appetizer. Here are some that we love:

Arancini — This Sicilian staple is a fried rice ball filled with rice and bolognese.

Calamari Calamari comes from the Italian word for "squid." This deep-fried appetizer is loved by all and is the perfect start to an authentic Italian eating experience.

Pasta Lunch Dishes

Want a comforting bowl of pasta? Well, we've got plenty of options! Here are a few of our favorites:

Casarecce e Funghi — Casarecce is a favorite pasta that originates from Sicily. These short twists of pasta that roll up on themselves are perfect for holding plenty of our fan-favorite creamy sauce and is completed with mushrooms and ham.

Gnocchi Gorgonzola — This hearty gnocchi dish is bathed in our delicious Gorgonzola sauce and is topped with crispy prosciutto that you won't want to stop eating.

Spaghetti Amatriciana — Our take on the classic spaghetti amatriciana is one of the best (Biased? Yes.). Enjoy spaghetti, pancetta, and onions in a light and spicy tomato sauce.

Pizza Lunch Dishes

It is just about always time for pizza. It's hard to pick a favorite, so here are a few that we love from our lunchtime menu:

Margherita — You cannot go wrong with this classic pizza! It is full of fresh flavors and is topped with tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and extra virgin olive oil.

Vegetariana — For our veggies lovers, you'll want a taste of this delicious pizza. It’s topped with mozzarella, tomatoes, and tons of freshly diced vegetables, including eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms, and red bell peppers.
