The Italian diner has teamed up with That’s Amore to make an ooey-gooey cheesy gnocchi, with burrata, smoked mozzarella, scamorza, truffle caciotta and plenty more formaggi.

South Yarra’s Cucinetta doesn’t shy away from cheese – its annual Parmesan Wheel Week is a testament to that.

Now it’s upping the ante, with a cheesy gnocchi loaded with 29 different varieties of formaggi – a nod to the small restaurant’s 29-square-metre space.

Handmade potato gnocchi is mixed with more than two dozen cheeses from That’s Amore, then oven-baked for crispy edges. Varieties include fior di latte, smoked buffalo mozzarella, burrata, scamorza bianca, four types of caciotta (including truffle), ricotta, mascarpone – *deep breath* – squacquerone, buffalo bocconcini, smoked caciocavallo, blue cheese, formaggio di vacca and many more. The wine list also has 29 bottles to choose from.

The dish costs $39.99 and is available for lunch and dinner.
