Signature dish

cheese wheel pasta

Due to great success, the Paesano “cheese wheel pasta” has quickly become our signature dish. This cheese wheel pasta is prepared at the table and is the favourite of many. In the 18-month aged Grana Padano DOC wheel, we melt the cheese, add the pasta, ground black pepper and finish it off with grated black truffle.
