Part of Bowen Hills' ever-expanding King Street precinct, Il Verde has become the inner-city area's unofficial home of all things cheesy. Think pasta tossed around in a wheel of parmesan, gooey raclette and the aptly named twice-weekly combination of both: Death by Cheese.
And, then there's the Italian joint's signature four-cheese dish, which serves up pasta with melted grana parano, in a cream sauce filled talegio, plus soft montasio and provolone. If just reading about it has your tastebuds salivating, then you'd best sit down: for National Cheese Day, Il Verde are giving away 200 takeaway servings of this cheesy extravaganza for free.
Arrive at midday on Monday, June 4 to make all your four-cheese pasta dreams come true without spending a cent — but it you can't make it during the day, then drop by for dinner for something extra special. That's when the restaurant is premiering its new offering, aligot, as part of a quatro formaggi meal for $55. As well as a four-cheese linguine entree, cannoli for dessert and a glass of wine, you'll be among the first in Brisbane to try this combo of melted cheese and mashed potatoes, all blended together, then drizzled over a house-made sausage.
