Italian for Lamb's or Sheep's Head. It can also be made with goats head.

Typically boiled then dusted with bread crumbs and baked.

It is eaten with a squeeze of lemon and a turn of sea salt.

It was once proudly served at Puglia's Restaurant in Little Italy up until the late 80's and now served at their Staten Island location on Thursday nights.
