On Steve and Melissa Goda's trip to Italy in 2010, they visited Arpino, located near Rome. Melissa's family is originally from there, and couple came home with more than just great memories. Steve was so inspired by the village's inviting atmosphere that he opened the Arpino Trattoria in the Scott Township / Mt. Lebanon area in 2011. The menu is packed with Italian classics, but one of the biggest hits is Arpino's tripe. This delicacy is as old-school Italian as it gets. Chef Goda braises the tripe until it is tender, then douses it in a healthy helping of his house-made sauce. If you decide to check out this special (it's only available on Wednesday), Goda suggests you come early—this dish always sells out!
