Secret to Chef's Homemade Potato Gnocchi

Being classified as a "fine dining Italian restaurant", we pride ourselves on offering traditional Italian specialties.  One of our "House Specialties" is Chef's home-made potato gnocchi.  He has designed his recipe for the gnocchi to be perfectly paired with his four-cheese sauce and poached pears.  The four cheeses and pears come together in a beautifully fragrant sauce with just the right mix of sweet and savory flavors.  

Many people ask if he can do his gnocchi with a red sauce or a bolognese sauce, and much to their dismay, he can not.  This is because of his specially designed recipe.  What many people don't realize is that the ratio of ingredients creates a certain texture to the dough and if the texture is not balanced properly with the sauce, the gnocchi will turn to mush.  No one like mushy gnocchi! 

So, if you are looking for an Italian restaurant in Fort Lauderdale that makes their gnocchi from scratch - you have found it!
