***GODFATHER FAMILY STYLE****LAST SUPPER***

This is the restaurant your fellow foodies have raved about.  There is a slice of Italy deep in Rainier Valley.  I have received many special requests for family style dining. So back to one of my favorite places. Please join us for a wonderful evening of food and company.

I will be taking you to Lucca, Italy. Its food is among Italy’s most compelling — almost certainly the best in all of Tuscany.

Hidden right off of Rainier Ave, it's in an unsuspecting location--but perfect in every way. This is a one of kind spots... I love that its a small owned family business, cute "hole in the wall", great food, and friendly authentic service.

Sandro the owner.. did a good job with a full restaurant the last time we dined there. Got to give him credit. He made you feel you were like in Tuscany or Lucca where he is actually from.

Sandro and his wife Nancy (The owners) will offer all there signature dishes for our dinner menu.  They will have to special order a lot of the ingredients. He will also super size the dishes because of our larger party.  We will be having bottles of wine with dinner.

This place is such a neighborhood gem, it's time for you to come over to the burbs and check it out.

We will be dining FAMILY Style. As to try variety's of dishes they will be preparing for us. Cafe Vignole is indeed a culinary oasis South of Raineer. Since 2006, they have served host to Seattle for over 7 years. Their beautifully presented dishes do not contain MSG and are prepared individually to ensure freshness and the highest quality our diners expect.

Cafe Vignole, located in the South Lake neighborhood, is one of south Seattle's best kept secrets. Come dine and unwind in a wonderful lilttle place.

Bring CASH please!! :) CASHOLA:)

FREE PARKING ON THE STREET!!!

Assistant Organizer Fifteen joyous and happy foodies congregated in a little hole in the wall in Raineer Valley. We enjoyed the company of a wonderful chef named Sandro from Lucca Italy. He graced us with recipes from his mothers and grandmothers kitchen. A wonderful feast that lasted for 4 glorious hours. The wine was flowing, the food was fabulous, and the company was great. Thank you for sharing a wonderful evening with me. Till the next time

marsha conn *This is a restaurant I would go back to. Even though we had a long table , we were able to talk and everyone was so nice and fun to be with. Then there's the food! Nicely seasoned, imaginative menu and plenty of it! My favorite dish was the calamari.

Mike This was real treat: great Food, Wine and Friends. Had lovely time transporting myself back to Italy with some delicious culinary treats from Lucca, Italy. Thanks Sandro for having us and thanks Keoni for organizing.

      That's very sad. My husband is finally getting here (been away for military) that very day, so I've got to cancel, and I'm sorry I won't have been.
