One of Pittsburgh’s best new restaurants, DiAnoia’s Eatery, is inviting foodies to the Strip District spot for the Valpolicella Dinner on March 5. Local chefs Jolina Giaramita and Anthony Giaramita will join DiAnoia’s chef and owner, Dave Anoia, and DiAnoia’s wine director, Heather Perkins, in serving up a spread inspired by the Veneto and Valpolicella region in Italy.
Why these places specifically? Anoia and his wife, Aimee DiAndrea, co-owner of DiAnoia’s, visited the beautiful Valpolicella region on their honeymoon and have been in love with it ever since. They even have a mural in the restaurant, painted by local artist Diego Byrnes, based off a photo the couple took on their honeymoon!
Look to fall in love yourself, as you enjoy the dinner of Brodetto con Cannolicchi (a light, flavorful broth with razor clams), Petto D’Anatra con Vino Rosso e Aceto Balsamico con Polenta al Tartufo (pan-seared duck breast with red wine and balsamic reduction served with creamy truffle polenta), and more. Enjoy the five-course meal, complete with wine pairings, for $95 per person.
