How our idea

was born

Traditionally Emilian

Since 2004, Emilian tradition is the rule in Dispensa Emilia's kitchens.
We are your ideal lunch break or your dinner with friends. We serve you fast and with a selection of typical recipes such as tigelle, handmade pasta and gnocco fritto.  

Our specialty: the tigella!

The tigella is the queen of our menu. It is a thin round stuffed bread originating from the Emilian Apennines. It was named after the terracotta discs on which it cooked in the hearth. It bears the flower of life, a symbol of fecundity.

Welcome in Dispensa Emilia!

Rediscover the tradition, enrich it with the quality of the ingredients, and make it unique.
