RIPIENA is an authentic Italian laboratorio di pasta operating in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. At RIPIENA we take every care to ensure the quality of our products. This process begins with the surfaces we use to prepare the pasta, the feed that is given to the hens from which we source our eggs, and the various combinations of grains and milling processes in the flours we use. It continues with our precise adherence to the regional culinary traditions we present throughout our menu. Our menu is curated with the upmost care, and includes selected imported and local ingredients.
At RIPIENA we make our fresh pasta dough, in-house, several times daily as required. The fillings for our filled pastas, like our Tortelloni Verdi and Tortelli di Zucca, are made fresh, in-house, several times daily as required. The pork in our Tortellini di Bologna is marinated for 24 hours before being combined with Prosciutto di Parma, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and Mortadella di Bologna and being left to rest for a further 24 hours. The techniques used to craft our pastas ensure the highest quality from mixing, kneading, sheeting, folding, drying, and storing. No pretence, no exceptions, simply real Italian pasta without compromise.
At RIPIENA we sell all of our fresh pasta products either fresh from the kitchen or fresh from the fridge. Our laboratorio is open to the public during our hours of operation, and our kitchen is open for lunch and dinner services. Fresh, cooked, or take-away?
