Pasta and cheese lovers, listen up.

An Italian restaurant in Arizona has recently debuted a new tableside dining experience that involves hot pasta and a 50-pound cheese wheel.

Babbo Italian Eatery, a family-owned restaurant chain in Arizona, is making some of its signature pastas inside the cheese wheel. Watch the video in the player above to see what it is all about.

The result: a pasta dish that is drenched in creamy Grana Padano cheese. 

For now, the cheese wheel is only available at the Scottsdale restaurant, near Pima Road and Talking Stick Way, on Wednesdays - Sunday.

Each week, the restaurant announces the "cheese wheel special" on its Instagram. Only one type of dish can be made in the cheese wheel at a time. 

Babbo's has eight restaurants around the Valley with a ninth planned for Goodyear in "early 2019."
