Taste of Italy in Downtown L.A.
October 14 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm$25 - $125
Taste of Italy, a magnificent Italian food and wine event, will transform Pico House in historic Downtown L.A. into a charming Italian piazza the evening of October 14. This annual event highlights great cuisine from more than 50 of the city’s finest Italian restaurants. Taste of Italy also offers authentic Italian products, cooking demos by celebrity chefs and live entertainment. More than 100 world-class wines will be offered.
A preview tasting at Pasadena’s Celestino Ristorante and Bar, featuring dishes made with top-quality fine cheeses and prosciutto straight from Italy paired with many of the wines that will be served at Taste of Italy, made it apparent that this is no ordinary event. This Italian fare is truly a cut above.
The event takes place at Pico House, an Italianate former hotel built in 1869. Participating eateries include the aforementioned Celestino, Drago Centro, Locando del Lago, Desano Pizza Bakery and L’Opera.
