500 Restaurant, named after the Fiat 500, another little passion, will open with Mario's cooking knowledge and experience gained in all these years of hard work among celebrity chefs. Fresh ingredients, bread and pastas prepared on the premises every day will be the key. After few month 500 built already a substantial amount of regular customers. The menu changes about 5 times a year, although Mario needs to keep some dishes coming back regularly as some "signature dishes" will be requested even if they are not on the menu. The most asked for are the "oven baked rabbit", succulently juicy. The "fritto misto", a mixture of fresh seafood and vegetables deep fried. His gnocchi, soft as clouds or the pasta with Italian sausage ragu' or again pasta with slow cooked beef in tomato and red wine sauce are to die for, as some customers say. Not to mention Mario's tiramisu.
