Throughout 2014 Maurizio’s Restaurant is holding an amazing line up for degustation dinners showcasing a different region of Italy. They will be held on Saturdays and kick off on March 8th with Puglia and run through to November.
This evening in the car park next door to Maurizio they held their Il Giro D’Italia Festival from 4pm til 1am and then again on Sunday from 4pm to 10pm with food, drinks and entertainment. Entry is only $10 but for that you do get a $5 food voucher and $5 Drink voucher – bargain! 🙂
I headed along this evening from 5.30 til 7 or so and while the crowds weren’t too huge when we attended, it was early on in the proceedings and the event has the potential to be an enjoyable and lively affair. There’s cooking demos and musical entertainment too!
We really enjoyed the dishes we’d tried. My favourite was actually a freshly made pasta dish with a bean soup. It didn’t look pretty but the taste was completely delicious! I also liked the arancini and the Italian white I tried was a lovely drop! So if you are looking for something to do tomorrow and don’t fancy cooking dinner, then head along to Maurizio’s from 4 and you’ll be able to try a range of tasty Italian fare.
And here is the full list of Italian regional dinners they’ll be holding this year. Work your way through Europe 🙂
