Long Table Dinner: Campania

Haven't made it to a Long Table Dinner? There is room at the table.

Join us on July 27 & 28 at Bridge Street when we focus on the region of Campania. Naples is the capital, Mt. Vesuvius, Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast make it well known. The region is famous for its pizza, pasta, wine and the ingredients that make the dishes: San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella di bufula, lemons, fish and grapes to name a few.

Sticking with tradition, we'll be serving Insalata Caprese, Pizze, Pesce and finish the meal with Lemoncello zabaglione. The wine? Falanghina - said to be worth more than gold in Roman times and Aglianco - often compared to Barolo & Barbaresco and grown in Campania for more than 3000 years!

Seating is limited to 24 each evening and dinner begins at 7 p.m. Cost is $63.50 ($50 per person plus hst & grat) and includes wine with the meal.

For more information or to make your reservation, call Andrew @ 250-590-4388 or andrew@primastrada.com.
