Bella Serata: Valentine’s Day Sicilian Style in New York

Thank you to all who came to our Valentine’s Day Sicilian Style in New York City event last evening! And grazie mille to Chefs Giuseppe Sciurca and Nino Elia and Valeria Signorino and Joe Ravo for teaming up with me to create something so special for Experience Sicily!

The cuisine, the wines, the decore, the guests … It was a symphony playing an elegant fugue.

Our guest Gilda said, “I can’t use enough superlatives to describe the venue, the collection of people, or the culinary delights served last night. Giuseppe and Nino outdid themselves from the appetizer to the dessert, and in between the group was serenaded by Villa Palagonia. The duo of Allison Scola and Joe Ravo, provided soulful original music that complimented the evening beautifully.”

And Alan wrote, “You outdid yourself again. The dinner was exceptional in every respect. Custom making the cocktail napkins was over the top but true to form. Your attention to detail is truly remarkable.

The entire evening was a labor of love!

In addition to the Cannoli Crawls, our next events are Sunday, March 10, the ritual bread making workshop in preparation for Saint Joseph’s Day, and our annual Saint Joseph’s Day community luncheon on Sunday, March 24. Reservations and more at
