June 14, 2018, Thursday - 1st Annual Lumminara of the Bonicelli Garden!

Photo credit:  Mark LaFavor, Bonicelli Kitchen

Time: 8pm

Location: Bonicelli Kitchen, 1839 Central Avenue Northeast

1st Annual Lumminara of the Bonicelli Garden!

Join Chef Laura Bonicelli and her culinary staff for the summer christening of the Bonicelli Garden.  Take part in a celebration commemorating the Luminara of San Ranieri –  named in honor of Saint Rainerius, the patron saint of Pisa, Italy -  the most magical, candlelight festival in all of Tuscany, hosted at sunset on an evening mid-June. 

Find your table in the restaurant’s garden patio, drenched in candlelight. Enjoy a complimentary sparkling glass of Italian Prosecco while savoring sample plates of one of Chef Bonicelli’s most popular pasta creations: Bonicelli’s Summer Vegetable Pasta with Burrata.  Afterwards, make selections from Bonicelli’s regular menu of made-from-scratch small plates that offer a global array of seasonally fresh offerings.  Consider a Nicoise Salad, Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli with Asparagus, Fish Tacos or the ever-popular Lemon Pasta and Torta Rustica. Pair entrees from a wide selection of Italian, French and other curated wines.

Be among the first to reserve your table on the patio at 8 p.m.; seating is limited.  Seating in the restaurant’s dining room will also be available, and garden diners will be seated in the restaurant if the weather doesn’t cooperate. 

Reservations:  Book through via Yelp reservations.
