Little Italy Launches New Italian Experience: An Evening In Tuscany

The Little Italy Association (LIA) of San Diego is bringing a brand new, premier event, Solo Italiano: Dinner in Rosso (Dinner in Red) presented by PenFed Credit Union to the recently opened, Piazza della Famiglia.

Solo Italiano: Dinner in Rosso presented by PenFed Credit Union will transform the Piazza della Famiglia into a magical Tuscan-inspired evening featuring a one-of-a-kind curated and immersive dining experience that encourages guests to dress in their best red attire.

While creating a truly authentic Italian experience, the flagship event will also help raise funds for the LIA to continue its efforts to enhance and preserve the rich history and charm of the community.

Experience Tuscany

Tuscan farm tables will line the Piazza della Famiglia for an exclusive family-style dinner featuring endless Italian courses, sips of Italian beverages, strolling Italian entertainment, interactive performances, table-side Italian lessons, Gesso Italiano (Chalk Art), dancing and more.

During the communal dining experience, guests can expect to be waited on and engage with cheese experts who will offer each table a selection of gourmet cheeses to taste—enhancing their experience

Be Entertained

Throughout the dinner, opera singer, Natalie Moran Clegg will dazzle the crowd with an exquisite performance from one of the balconies in the Piazza.

Headliner and Naples born and raised singer, Pasquale Esposito, will take the stage for a live performance; inviting guests to dance the night away on the dance floor.

Pre-dinner Cocktail

Prior to the orchestrated dining experience, attendees are invited to explore the Luxury Galleria for cocktail time from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. featuring wine from Mignanelli Winery, olive oil tastings from Della Pace and a pop-up Italian soda bar.

The Luxury Galleria will also feature a variety of activities—live entertainment, an exotic Lamborghini model range display, an Italian fashion show by Roberto Cavalli, live Gesso Italiano (Chalk Art) and more. Guests can snap their picture-perfect Italian photo-op at one of the photo vignettes with Lamborghini and Vespa.
