Spaghetti aglio e olio origins

At Criniti’s, we’re proud to offer a wide variety of delicious Italian dishes at our locations in Parramatta, Brighton le Sands, Castle Hill, Southbank, Carlton, and Wetherill Park. One of our most beloved dishes is the spaghetti aglio e olio, a simple yet flavourful pasta with a rich history dating back to the 1950s in Italy.

Spaghetti aglio e olio, which translates to spaghetti with garlic and oil, originated in Southern Italy as a quick and easy meal for poor families. It was made with minimal, readily available, and affordable ingredients, including spaghetti, garlic, olive oil, and chili flakes. This dish quickly gained popularity and spread throughout the country, becoming a staple in Italian cuisine.

At Criniti’s, we’ve perfected the spaghetti aglio e olio recipe by adding fresh parsley and parmesan cheese, making it a true Italian classic. Whether you’re a fan of traditional Italian cuisine or looking for something with a modern Australian twist, our menu has something for everyone. So the next time you’re looking for the best Italian restaurant in Australia, be sure to visit Criniti’s and try our famous spaghetti aglio e olio. Buon Appetito!
