For your convenience Festa! 2018 will be configured with all dinner (Pranzo) dishes found along the Via Mangiare on the north side of the festival area. This will be the area with the large tent that runs along the church hall. Dessert items will be located at the western edge of the festival along our famous street, La Dolce Via. Mangia bene!
