silly puzzle

identify the reference:

So I announced that my dream would be to open an Italian restaurant that specializes in veal and pasta dishes catering specifically to the opera aficionado crown. I'd call it "Calf and Spag".

The ambience would be rustic, and we might even offer a clown show.

Have a go at it.

Would Green be the dominant color in internal decoration?

I hadn't thought of the colour, and nothing specific comes to mind about it, but it certainly could be.

so no more takers?

it IS a silly puzzle, but requires a tiny bit of understanding of a certain repertoire.
I've already dropped a few hints in some threads so far.

My try on a certain Mr Greens' work featuring a court jester didn't work. I later came to understand only one pagliaccio was not enough at all..which takes one to its frequent companion and so comes the solution to the great mystery formulated in culinary terms.

Thanks for the puzzle!!!
