An amazing Italian restaurant run by Luciana Righi and Mario Guerini.
Luciana Righi and Mario Guerini, both formally of Assaggi and Il Tartuffo, have teamed up to open their own restaurant. The food is traditional Emilia-Romagna Cuisine from that region of Italy, the region that created ragu, (know to non-Italians as bolognaise) Parma ham, pamento, balsamic vinegar and much more.
Luciana has had many restaurants over her career, Assaggi and Tre Nonni being the most successful in Johannesburg, but she has also had restaurants in Italy and Natal.
Amarcord is a word from a strong Italian dialect from the region, and means "I remember", but is also the title of a Federicho Fellini film.
