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 Fri., June 6th 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 glass of Franciacorta Farghettina for a toast, as traditionally, 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.
Wines to be served include:
Jankara Vermentino 2011
Vermantino Solaris 2011
Carignano Grotta Rossa 2011
Cannonau Noras 2010
"Shardana" Carignano Syrah 2008
Cost for this event is $32 (plus tax + gratuity making it $39.84) if purchased by June 4th and $37 (plus tax + gratuity making it $46.06) thereafter, if space is available. This includes a sparkling toast, a tasting of 5 wines and appetizers to match.
Paradiso will also be offering our group a special 3-course dinner special for $39 for those who would like to stay for dinner. For those who know Paradiso, know that this is an amazing deal and I'd highly recommend taking advantage of it.
