"La Massa" in the beautiful town of Panzano in Chianti Classico, good buddy Antonio Rallo (fellow Sicilian) of Donnafugata in Marsala, Francesca Planeta of Planet also in Sicily, Miralisa Allegrini of Allegini and their famed Amarone near Lago de Garda and the Veneto, Sebastiano Rosa famed winemaker of Sassicaia and cousin Piero Incisa Rocheeto of Tenuta San Guido the estate of Sassicaia and many more, like the affable Alessandor Landini of Vitticio in Greve and the Columbini's of Brunello producer Fattoria Barbi.

With reference of your article we have the pleasure to tell you the history of our grandfather Alfredo Di Lelio, creator of this recipe in the world known.
Alfredo di Lelio opened the restaurant “Alfredo” in a street in the center of Rome in 1914, after leaving his first restaurant run by his mother Angelina in Piazza Rosa (Piazza disappeared in 1910 following the construction of the Galleria Colonna / Sordi). In this local spread the fame, first to Rome and then in the world, of “fettuccine all’Alfredo”. In 1943, during the war, Di Lelio gave the local to others outside his family.
In 1950 Alfredo Di Lelio decided to reopen with his son Armando his restaurant in Roma, Piazza Augusto Imperatore n.30, “Il Vero Alfredo” (“Alfredo di Roma”), which is now managed by his nephews Alfredo and Ines, with the famous “gold cutlery”” (fork and spoon gold) donated in 1927 by two well-known American actors Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks (in gratitude for the hospitality).
See also the site of “Il Vero Alfredo” (“Alfredo di Roma”)
We must clarify that other restaurants “Alfredo” in Rome do not belong to the family tradition of “Il Vero Alfredo”.
We inform that the restaurant “Il Vero Alfredo” is in the Registry of “Historic Shops of Excellence” of Rome Capitale.
Best regards Alfredo e Ines Di Lelio
