Andrea Luca Rossi, raised in Venice and a long-time Slow Food advocate, now regularly serves a variety of traditional Venetian small plates (cichetti) at his Rittenhouse Square restaurant. He has designed a special Night in Venice menu for us, matching typical Venetian dishes with wines from Penns Woods Winery in Chadds Ford. Andrea will talk with us about the dishes on his menu, written in Venetian dialect sometimes impossible to translate simply.


Dinner with wine pairings, including tax and tip, costs $60; without wine pairings, $45. Wine and beer are also available by the glass or bottle.


Space is limited to fifty people, so secure your reservations early with a credit card by calling the restaurant at 215-545-0441 and referring to the Slow Food October 11 dinner. We’ll sit in groups as usual so, if you want to be seated with particular people, do let the restaurant know. Please note: the optional vegetarian entrée must be ordered when you make your reservation. The restaurant will maintain a wait list. Any cancellation must be made before Saturday, October 9.
