Earlier this year, De Laurentiis announced that her restaurant would also feature an Italian version of dim sum during brunch, inspired by her grandfather, Italian film producer Dino De Laurentiis, and his love of dim sum service.
The menu “will embrace De Laurentiis’ Roman heritage, mirroring her passion for Italian cooking with vibrant, Californian influences,” announced The Cromwell.

Signature dishes will include lemon spaghetti, eggplant rollatini, and marsala herb chicken meatballs.
The full dinner menu is available on The Cromwell’s website and includes a pronunciation guide that rather inexplicably only applies to the pasta section. In case you were wondering, the Spaghetti (Spah-geh-tee) with shrimp, lemon, and basil, is $28.
For your consideration, the menu is also labeled according to “Giada Classics,” “Raffy (Giada’s aunt) favorites,” and “Dino favorites.”
