Penne Alla Vodka is America's dirty little secret. While its secret origin might surprise you, its sordid history will baffle you, which is why food fanatic filmmaker Roberto Serrini delved deep into the dish grilling celeb chefs, exploring NYC's best clandestine markets, having it analyzed by scientists, and even sourcing illegal ingredients to discover its secret powers that polarize the culinary world.
This is more than just a dish, it's a metaphor for society as a whole. Have we gone food crazy? Yes. Will we ever be satisfied? Never.

I've always been passionate about making amazing, fun content about the things we unknowingly love. Dedicating a life to travel and documentary, I've had the honor to tell dozens of unique and beautiful stories through my lens. I truly love handcrafting these films, producing, shooting, and editing them on my own terms, so that a unique perspective can always ring true. This, the latest of of my absurd work, will hopefully leave you full, but craving just a bite more.
