Plate of gnocchi from a restaurant near Olympus Midtown in Nashville, Tennessee



Gnocchi are pillowy Italian potato dumplings that make for a hearty meal.

This delicious dish originated in Northern Italy where the colder climate was more suitable for growing potatoes instead of grain.

The recipes vary from region to region, and if you would like to enjoy gnocchi, visit one of the following restaurants:

Trattoria Il Mulino

Trattoria Il Mulino is where executive chef Thomas Cook brings a unique dining experience to Nashville. He prepares tried and true recipes and contemporary favorites using ingredients from local farms, and all of the dishes pair well with the extensive wine list. The restaurant also offers friendly service and a see-and-be-seen atmosphere featuring indoor and outdoor seating. Try the gnocchi with a delectable slice of Italian cheesecake.

Valentino's Ristorante

At Valentino's, the chefs have a passion for bold flavors, fresh ingredients, and fine wine. The service is always attentive, and guests enjoy the elegant, yet cozy atmosphere that makes everyone feel at home. Every Thursday through Saturday, Teri Reid entertains with her exceptional vocal and piano playing skills. She is one of the city's most critically acclaimed solo performers and has been named "Nashville's Best Piano Bar Player" three years running by Nashville Scene Magazine. For dinner, try the homemade gnocchi served with roasted cherry tomatoes, asparagus, and basil.

Bella Napoli Pizzeria

Chef Paolo Napoli began cooking when he was five years old. He helped his mother prepare Sunday dinners, and over the years, his love for food grew. When Paolo decided to open Bella Napoli's, he chose Edgehill Village as its ambient courtyard made him feel as though he was back home in Italy. The menu features an array of dishes, including Gnocchi Alla Siciliana baked with eggplant, fresh mozzarella, and Parmigiano, and tossed in tomato sauce.
