The Truffle Truck officially opened its doors in May. Over the past month, we’ve had a lot of fun sharing our love of authentic Italian food with you! Food critic, Andrew Ross, has this to say about our new truck baby,
"Why you should track them down: No, not for the novelty of finding a luxury ingredient (truffles) for sale from the back of a kitchen on wheels, but for the admirably high standard of the food..."
You can read more about the Truffle Truck in his article in the Press Herald. We have also enjoyed YOUR reviews and feedback. We read every review and we appreciate you so much. So now we have some very exciting news to share with all The Truffle Truck’s fans: We are planning new menu items!
