If I asked an Italian restaurant to make Aglio Olio could they do it even if it s not on the menu?

It s probably one of the most popular pasta dishes in Italy, prep time is 15 minutes tops, and it only has 4-5 ingredients that would all be found in an Italian restaurant s kitchen. Unfortunately, I never see it on the menu. Has anyone ever asked a restaurant to whip up something that they don t technically serve? It s a legit Italian family that owns the restaurant so I m assuming that they would know what Aglio Olio is.

I have asked to have that at three different Italian restaurants in Montreal, Canada. All three did not have it on the menu, but prepared it for me. It is essentially pasta that has been lightly sauted in olive oil and garlic. Some places will add a little parsley and/or aged shaved parmigiano reggiano .

I would think that many restaurants would be able to make this for you. It really depends on the restaurant you are dealing with. Some have set menus and don't deviate from them. Others will make something not on the menu for you, provided their kitchen is not swamped with orders.

They could it's easy but why do you have to be that guy that is a J off and wants something not on the menu. It's not your mom's house.. it's a business. Ask them to make it for you , but remember the cooks who don't have time for your B.S. AND your server who also doesn't have time for your B.S. see your food before you do. Mangia bene !!
