LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — If food is the way to the heart, then healthy food is the healthy heart. That along wit exercise can prevent heart disease and keep your ticker ticking. February is American Heart Month and a good time to focus on cardiovascular health.

You may not associate Italian food with healthy eating, but Chef Dan Thompson of D’Agostino’s Trattoria makes it possible to enjoy rich cuisine while staying healthy.

“We want our customers, who we considered our extended family, to be able to enjoy our food and stay healthy,” Thompson said.

Chef Thompson created the Healthy Heart Menu several years ago. One of his regulars expressed that he wouldn’t be able to eat the foods he loves, including some of the Italian dishes he’d ordered at D’Agostino’s, so the new menu with him in mind.

Now, D’Agostino’s Trattoria’s Healthy Heart Menu is available for all customers, or extended family, to share. The menu features everything from Gluten free pasta primavera to chicken with house-made, hand-turned artichokes. The menu is designed with the gluten-free, pescatarian, vegan, and heart-healthy customer in mind.
