Like all mountain villages, even in Cervara di Roma one of the traditional dishes is potato gnocchi. They are prepared with a mixture of water, flour, salt and crushed potatoes. After being well ‘massaged’, the dough is divided into parts that then in turn stretched into shapes that are then cut into cubes.

The favorite sauce is that based on lamb testicles or the famous ‘Gnocchi del Brigante’ seasoned with a spicy tomato sauce.
