Birmingham’s frequent bursts of snowfall lately tell us that winter isn’t going anywhere just yet. But it’s not all freezing hands and windswept hair (the unflattering kind) – we’ve got the perfect cure with so many delicious winter comfort food dishes at Pasta Di Piazza here in the Jewellery Quarter.
If you’ve given up all hope on ever thawing this winter, help is at hand. There really is nothing quite like delicious Italian comfort food to warm up your insides on a cold day. Italian food is full of all the essential components of a comfort food dish; simple, hearty, filling and full of flavour.
Take a look at some our favourite traditional Italian comfort dishes from our menu here at Pasta Di Piazza:
We can’t not begin with pizza! It’s got everything you want on a cold day; carbs, cheese and rich tomato, freshly baked and piping hot out of the oven. We take our pizza game seriously here at Pasta Di Piazza which is why we have a grand total of 11 different pizzas to choose from. We challenge you to find better, authentic Italian pizza in Birmingham!
Why not share our pizzas with a loved one for the extra warmth? But if the mere suggestion of sharing a pizza makes you a tad furious – we’re totally not judging you.

A hearty bowl of pasta is the ultimate winter warmer. Our favourites include our traditional Italian Spaghetti Alla Bolognese and our Gnocchi Dolcelatte E Spinaci. If anything makes pasta better and more comforting – it’s potato! These deliciously filling potato dumplings are cooked in a creamy blue cheese and spinach sauce. If you’re in need of something rich, wholesome and utterly delicious to assist you with defrosting from the cold, you won’t regret our gnocchi!

Never underestimate the power of an Italian dessert to warm up your soul through an unpleasant winter! We have so many indulgent treats on our Dolci menu to satisfy your sweet tooth and make you feel fuzzy inside. One of our favourites has to be our Tiramisu Casalingo. It’s a creamy classic featuring sponge soaked in brandy, sambuca, amaretto liqueur and espresso, layered with mascarpone cheese and cream. We think the combination of the alcohol, cream and coffee makes for a perfect cold soother.
