Un Aperitivo, a unique Italian experience at Paradiso

**Please note that we promote our events in a variety of ways so the number of RSVPs on meetup will not give you an accurate count. Also, you must buy your ticket on Savor Tonight's website, rather than on meetup. An RSVP or confirmation on meetup will not secure your spot. 

Join Savor Tonight, as we visit Paradiso Ristorante for an evening of authentic Italian food & fine wine.  We will be hosting an "Un Aperitvo" event on Thurs., Sept. 19th from 6-8pm.

In Italy, most evenings begin with “Un Aperitivo" and we will recreate this at our event. While as Americans, we think that happy hour is a great start to the evening, the Italians think otherwise. They want something more elegant and stylish to begin the night. Envision a scene from a Fellini film and you’ll have a better idea of the sophisticated aura that surrounds this time of day in Italy.

Paradiso will host our group in their cozy, intimate lounge and launch the evening with a Prosecco toast as, traditionally, as this is customary at most Italian events.

Aperitivo time is also always accompanied by plates of small appetizers, and Paradiso will provide the beautiful, artistic and delectable stuzzichini (small bites) that Chef-Owner Angelo Romano is known for. We've even convinced the restaurant to do a demo of their liquid nitrogen ice cream (you'll be in foodie heaven) for the group.

Cost for this event is $30 if purchased by September 16th and $35 thereafter. Please remember to tip the servers. This will include a Prosecco toast, a tasting of 4 wines, stuzzichini and a taste of the liquid nitrogen ice cream.

Paradiso will also be offering a special 3-course dinner option for $39 to our guests who attend the event. For those of you who know Paradiso, know that this is an amazing deal & I'd highly recommend taking advantage of it. 

Wines to be served include:

Pinot Grigio, Terre di Luna 2012

Falanghina Terredoro Dipaolo 2011

Rosso Piceno Superiore Le Torri 2010

Aglianico Villa Matilde 2010

    Katy, your events are always wonderful. Do you expect that the plates of appetizers will be enough to constitute dinner by the bite?

      unfortunately, with so many flavors specials around town this month, Ralph and I must pass on this. Sorry! See you next time!

      No worries. This one is as much about the wine, as it is about the food as we'll be featuring 5 wines. We'll see you soon.
