Hump Day Casa Carbone Italian Ristorante

Everyone loves Italian so we will head to Casa Carbone Italian Ristorante on Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh in April. I've been there many times over the years and didn't know it turns out that Catherine has a long history with them. It makes you wonder how many times we almost ran into each other over the years even at Villa Capri. 

Below is some text I copied from an earlier event.

John and Jean Carbone opened their first restaurant - the Villa Capri - in January of 1958 on Hillsborough Street. In 1967, they moved it to the Ridgewood Shopping Center (where Catherine has celebrated many birthdays), and remained there until 1984, when their daughter, Maria (who Catherine met at a Psychology Conference when they were both attending two different colleges in Raleigh), and her husband, Michael House, partnered with Maria's parents to create Casa Carbone, on Glenwood Avenue.

Did You Know? Michael and Maria were high school sweethearts. They've known each other since they were 11 years old!

John's family is from Naples, Italy... Jean's is from Palermo, Sicily.
