The only true Italian sister of the carpet clam: the Vongole veraci. Veraci means ‘the one’. Vongole veraci shells are oval and around 5 cm in size. The colour of their shells varies greatly and may be black, white, grey or yellow and any variations in between. An authentic spaghetti alle vongole is a fantastic experience.
