About this Event

Join us for the start of an Italian food & wine dinner series. This new series will focus on the different cuisines and wines of Italy. Each of the upcoming dinners will focus on a specific region of Italy, showcasing that region’s local dishes. In addition, the wines of that region will be expertly paired to each dish so that you can experience the wine and food as it was meant to be experienced! You will feel like you are eating and drinking in a small Italian village nestled amongst the hills and vineyards!!! Guiding you through the food and wine each night will be Tony Polzer, Italian Wine Ambassador (IWA). He will be on hand to discuss the different wines, as well as touch upon the local dishes and the culture of the region. So not only will you have an amazing wine-paired dinner, but you will also come away from the evening with some newfound knowledge of that region’s food and wine scene!

No better way to start this series than with one of Italy’s most famous regions: Tuscany! The birthplace of da Vinci, Michelangelo, Botticelli, and the entire Italian Renaissance. Famous for its rolling hills and walled hill-towns. And home to some of the best food and wine on the planet! The food of Tuscany can generally be described as hearty, with its rich flavors and its focus on meats & game. Given the heartiness of its cuisine, it makes sense that the wines of Tuscany are predominantly red. Think Sangiovese, the King of Tuscan grapes! But Tuscany does have more to offer than just it’s world-famous red wines. They also produce excellent white wines and one of Italy’s most famous dessert wines: Vin Santo.

03-17-2020 Dear Italian Market Supporters,
With the trepidation surrounding the spread of the Coronavirus we wanted to inform you of the extra precautions that have been implemented.  All our food preparation areas are normally cleaned and sanitized at the beginning and end of every shift. We have increased this to hourly.  This hourly cleaning and food grade sanitizing regime will incorporate all surfaces that our guests can encounter.

  • This will include all self-service counters, ordering and receiving counters, bathroom facilities, door handles, push plates and any other area that I am failing to remember at this moment.
  • The tables and chairs will be cleaned and sanitized after every use.
  • All our cleaning and sanitizing agents are food service grade.

For those who would like a bit more distance than the recommended 6 feet of space between people, we offer a drive thru pick-up window. You can give us a call and drive by for pick up.  We go above the necessary not because of any regulations but because of family. This restaurant is a family establishment. It reflects the idea of family that the Lubrano’s hold. On any given day, you can come in and likely run into a family member dining here. These ideas extend beyond the immediate. They extend to the staff, many of which have been with the family for more than 7 years. They also extend to you, our guests. We want to make you feel as though you are with family every time you are here.

From our family to yours, stay safe and take care of one another.
