Chef Rodney Moreira is the The Sauce King

Chef Rodney Moreira

Porcini’s Italian Restaurant in Watertown is celebrating 13 years with Chef Rodney Moreira this month. Nicknamed “The Sauce King” by his favorite customers, Moreira is known for serving healthy, local food made with produce from nearby Russo’s market. He also offers delicious, easy to identify, gluten-free and vegetarian items to diners with special concerns.

Moreira is especially known for his house-made flavorful focaccia bread, baked fresh daily and sliced warm to order. This specialty is accompanied by a garbanzo bean dip made with sun-dried tomatoes and fresh garlic and drizzled with the finest olive oil. Many Porcini customers are regulars or visitors that arrive due to enthusiastic recommendations from friends and family that love dining there. In 2013 Porcini’s was voted “Best of the Best” and Greater Watertown’s Best Italian Restaurant, along with the Phantom Gourmet’s Great Ate for Best Pasta.
