About Artusi

“It is true that man does not live by bread alone; he must eat something with it. And the art of making this something as economical, savory and healthy as possible is, I insist, a true art.”
—Letter to Pellegrino Artusi from poet Lorenzo Stecchetti, 1845-1916

In 1891, Pellegrino Artusi published the landmark La Scienza in cucina e l’arte di mangiare bene (The Science of Cooking and the Art of Eating Well). Written as a cookbook for middle-class families, Artusi used intuitive and humorous insight into manners, nutrition and culinary technique to create a national cuisine, collecting recipes from all over Italy.

It is in this spirit that we are delighted to welcome you. Inspired by our namesake, Artusi is a place to relax after a day’s work with good food and great drinks.
