Lombardia Regional Dinner Wednesday 4th July @ 7pm

Experience the Food of Lombardia at Aperitivo

Join us on Wednesday 4th of July as we bring the food of Lombardia to Aperitivo for our Lombardia Regional Dinner.

With Milan as it’s capital and no coastline to speak of, the food from this region is typified by rice, maize, meats, cheeses & butter – all the good stuff basically.

Lombardia has Alpine peaks and glaciers in the north, several picturesque lakes, and the rich, irrigated Po valley in the south.

The “Lago di Garda” is Italy’s largest lake and a popular holiday destination.

Situated midway between Verona and Brescia, surrounded by mountains to the north and with a particularly mild climate, it is an idyllic destination for the entire family.

Similar to all Italian cooking, Lombardia has countless great dishes so we’ve put together a menu that we think best represents the region as a whole.
