No bookings required. Come and enjoy the good life with food, wine and the best Italian music. What’s Sunday for if not a celebration, Italian style!

Regional Dinners

In Italia, there are twenty different regions! Some you have heard of, like Toscana and Sicila, but there are many wonderful places that have been kept secret, and each one has its own flavour. Have you heard of the tiny central region of Molise, famous for its cheeses? Or the German-influenced pasta of Trentino Alto-Adige? Wonders from across Italy are waiting for you.

Our Regional Dinner series brings these wonders to you. Every event showcases the rustic flavours - the cucina tipica - of each region. Feel as if you’re right there in Italia, and a local family has invited you into their home.
