What does a gourmet Italian restaurant really do to beat this? I can have world class pasta at home in 10 minutes for a fraction of the price. I don't see what techniques are needed to take this beyond what can be bought in a common grocery store.

    nothin, there's no innovation in Italian food it's far to strict on what constitutes "Italian" so do whatever the frick you want. Unless you turn it into Filipino Spaghetti, if you do that it's straight to jail.

      At least only Italians are strict about it - unlike fricking mexican "food" wherein every single White person on the planet will come to scream at you for eating a hard shell taco (which they now claim they invented after decades of saying it isn't real because only White people do it).

    Homemade sauce tastes 6 million times better than store-bought. Even the gourmet fancy pants pre-made sauces, although quite good, just pale in comparison to what you can make at home. Now if your idea of Italian is olive garden or Carrabas or something then yeah nah you can compete with the jarred sauces and boxed macaroni. But a true gourmet fine Italian place, the only way to compete with what they're cooking is making the sauce and pasta yourself.

              There's a difference between homemade canned tomatoes and the stuff from the shop.
              Homemade, it's not even bio, it's hand-picked, grown with no chemical shit at all, in a garden where fricking cats and chickens take care of parasites and pests, and then boiled with no added preservatives.
              Restaurants can use that sauce the whole year. and you can taste the difference.

              they use canned san marzanos from the factory, you're coping.

    Italians would have you believe they have the ultimate cuisine and it must be cooked a certain way and only that way, and only served with a special drink for the time of day, and only a certain drink for after the meal, and only a certain way for every little fricking thing you can imagine. At the end of the day, italians are the most insufferable picky eaters in the world and want to force everyone to follow their stupid rules.

    At the end of the day, they eat POOR peoples food. Pasta with sauce lmao, thats not a meal thats ehat homeless people eat

      Sounds like you're butt hurt from getting scammed over a dish of pasta from your last trip to Italy, probably from some tourist trap where they have their menu in English and will overcharge you for anything.

      Yeah, so what's your point?
      Picrelated is the historical way pasta was eaten in Naples during ww2, bought from a street stand on some butcher paper, and eaten straight up without utensils.
      Shit's good all the same.

        still very low tier compared to homemade. it's so easy and you can store it forever. do a batch once a month or something.
        even halfway decent carbonara, aglio olio, alfredo or pesto doesn't exist if you want store bought

    Any restaurant is going to have a meaty tomato sauce that they make on site. So, no jarred sauce is the same thing. It will be less salty too, since it's not entirely from canned tomatoes. Got it?

    A better italian restaurant will offer some items like stuffed pastas or fresh pastas, if that is something you like. A baked dish takes time, though you could make that at home too, lasagna is a common item to order when dining there.
    Finally, handmade garlic knots served right from the oven, swimming in chunky crushed garlic, and buttery oil, with lots of sea salt, is something almost no one is making at home.

    Making a good home-made sauce requires a little effort but mostly time. Not to mention that what makes italian food taste much better in Italy than in other countries are the ingredients.

    I asked a friend of mine what he thought about the pizza in Italy compared to what we have here (an eastern european country with a sizable diaspora in Italy) and he basically said the access to quality ingredients.

    also, most people dont go to restaurants just because they arent able to make it better at home, but for convenience, or they want the whole ambience experience and they want to be able to post about it in their socials
