Since it's still wintry in April, come enjoy this heartwarming dish. And why is it still this cold?
.
Spaghetti all'Amatriciana
Derived from the small southern town of Amatrice, this classic Italian sauce is at the heart of Roman cuisine, eaten by everyone from the Holy See on down. Pancetta, onions, tomatoes, and pecorino Romano are pulled together to transcend the simplicity of those ingredients. .
Available as a single dinner or family sized portions

Join us for our Wine Education Series

Tuesdays @ 6:30 starting 3/19 through 5/21

Come take a wine-tasting journey through the hills and valleys of Italy’s wine regions and those of neighboring areas. In each of eight delicious hour-long sessions, Ben Zemmel will call on his ten years of immersive experience in enology (the science and study of wines and winemaking) to guide you through the characteristics of each region’s wines. And you’ll enjoy small bites paired with each wine.

Head to the link in our profile for our website with all the details.

Don't make Mom cook!
Set a pretty table. Put out the good wine glasses. Bring home dinner. Make it an event!
.
And if you can’t be there to enjoy dinner with her, drop it off and have a family video call. Use this occasion to celebrate the closeness of family even if you’re physically apart.
.
You can also order any item from our To Go Menu.
