In Rome will you only find gnocchi on a menu on Thursdays?
We have a dinner reservation at Roscioli on a Tuesday and Armando al Pantheon on a Wednesday, will we find gnocchi on the menu or should we change either to a Thursday? Thanks!
It used to be that restaurants only had gnocchi on Thursdays. This is changing though and you often find them on menus other days of the week. That said, if you want to be sure, you can always either call ahead, or - as you suggest - change your day.
But...just because it's thursday, doesn't necessarily mean you will find gnocchi. So best to ask anyway.
Roscioli has at the moment gnocchi on the standard menu - but theirs is not one of the best in town (l'arcangelo's is). Am not sure about armando, if they will have it on non-thursdays...
