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.

Lasagna Bolognese is back!

While our menu might be limited during the kitchen renovation we did bring back a very much asked for dish - Lasagna Bolognese.
Layers of fresh egg pasta, béchamel and our famous pork and beef Bolognese sauce, topped with plum tomatoes and mozzarella and finished in the oven. An Alforno classic!
And if you don’t remember this from before but have enjoyed our house-made tagliatelle bolognese over the years, rest assured you can enjoy the same great house-made pasta and our famous bolognese sauce in lasagna form.
