There are many food trucks on any given day outside of LACMA in Los Angeles. What Prince of Venice has to offer far surpasses any of the other food trucks in Los Angeles. With their freshly made pasta every day with super simple sauces, what more could you ask for?.
They cook their pasta and sauces right in front of you for every order and they make all of their pastas fresh every morning. Alberto Bertoncin, my guide and chef who took over last August, is now at the helm of this amazing truck.
Here’s what I tried:
Casarecce al Pollo and Curry, with Organic Chicken, Light Cream, Curry, Chives. There is something so special about this dish, you just don’t think of curry with pasta and it being on an Italian menu. It is simply wonderful, my favorite pasta of the day. Something I never knew, Alberto told me that they actually have recipes with curry in Italy.
Conchiglie alla Norma, with Eggplant, Tomatoes, Basil, Dried Ricotta Cheese. All of their pasta’s are cooked Al Dente. The only thing that isn’t vegetarian would be the cheese, so this is a great dish for a non-meat eater.
Maccheroni alla Bolognese, with 100% Beef Ground Bolognese Sauce, Parmesan. This sauce is just incredible, like your Nonna used to make. It’s a touch sweet but super hearty with a lot of beef.
Casarecce al Salmone, with Smoked Salmon, Light Cream Sauce, Chive. I have had a similar dish in San Francisco. The problem is that the smoky salmon can come off as being too fishy, but I love its brilliant smoky flavor.
Orecchiette al Pesto with Basil, Parmigiano Cheese, Pecorino Cheese, Almonds, Parsley, and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I just adore a great pesto sauce; there is nothing like it and Prince of Venice executed a luscious sauce with the fantastic Orecchiete, fit for a Prince or a Princess.
Special Gnocchi with sausage, which was not on the menu, but made special for my visit. The perfect potatoes gnocchi with a nice red sauce that is a bit spicy, will satisfy any appetite for authentic Italian pasta.
Crown Prince of Italy, Prince Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia, is the CEO of Prince of Venice company. The company is exciting and young, full of heritage. Prince of Venice, which is his hereditary title from the 1,000-year-old House of Savoy, takes pride in the quality and authenticity of its handmade pasta. It’s royally good.
They believe that they are the world’s first food truck serving gourmet, organic Italian handmade pastas and sauces, and have been successfully taking over the Los Angeles foodie scene. The Company’s business strategy is to expand operations by adding more Prince of Venice branded food trucks, starting a boutique food and gift shop.
The Prince of Venice food truck has been attracting international media attention, featured on Good Day LA FOX 11, KTLA Channel 5, KCRW, Telemundo 52, W Radio of Colombia, Vogue, LA Times, The Telegraph, The Huffington Post, Gala, The Daily Mail, Boss Magazine, Closer Magazine, The Guardian, Munchies, Hola! Mexico, and L’Italo Americano. “Is likely the most impressive and elaborate food truck operation in the city,” said LA Times. The Prince of Venice was voted Top Best 25 Food Trucks in Los Angeles by Los Angeles Magazine.
Testimonial: Here’s a little bit of inside Intel: Los Angeles Magazine Head Quarters is at 5900 Wilshire in Los Angeles, AKA smack dab along the mid-city food truck corridor. Every day for the last several years, a dozen or so trucks pull up outside the building. We’ve tried all of their bowls and wraps and mash-up monstrosities and watched them closely. The result? We’ve gotten pretty good at smelling out which trucks are worthwhile, and which are going to be gone in two weeks when people realize that their sushi-stuffed cheesesteak is a no-go. The best ones have a clear concept, a tight menu, and a regular line; Prince of Venice is one of them.
So if you’re in the neighborhood, Prince of Venice guarantees super fresh pasta and delicious authentic sauces with great prices. You just need to look online to find them. Conveniently located in Mid-Wilshire, as well as a different location in Beverly Hills, Prince Of Venice makes for easy wonderful eating!
