50 Providence Elites snuggled into a private room at Pane E Vino for an evening of Italian elegance, channeling the 1950's in Fellini-esque apparel and living la dolce vita for a few hours at Yelp's Roman Holiday Elite Event. "This event was so dolce/bellissimo/bene," it made Bestsy R "want to learn Italian!" She's "in amore – seriously amazing cocktails, wine selection, and food. So fabulous."
"Bravissimo for providing yelpers with a bella notte filled to the brim with great food," including a trio of tarts featuring duck confit, beef Bolognese, and eggplant caponata that Rebecca H enjoyed with "great wine and fun, friendly, fashionable Elites as far as the eye could see." Marcy L "rejoiced in the comfort of freshly sautéed little potato pillows" from the gnocchi station manned by none other than Chef Fraser. Mckenzie G loved the "fabulous gnocchi, made with marinara sauce to die for and Narragansett creamery cheese melted in at the very end. Definitely one of the highlights of the night!"
"The bread pudding at Pane E Vino is legendary. As a serious bread pudding aficionado," this recipe is easily one of Victoria K's favorites. Jennifer E loved the "decadently sweet" dessert, and found it to be "a great finale for the evening's fare." Another sweet touch "came from the bar serving up wine and Zyr vodka tastings – mixing up delicious cocktails" such as blueberry cosmos and Laura S's favorite, the "Amsterdam & Tonic – an excellent summer drink – very light and refreshing," and she loves "the idea of combining St. Germain and gin!"
Until next time, bambinos!
