Dining Around the Globe: Spring into the Flavors of Italy

April is an exciting month for Il Fornaio at Pacific Place. The Italian restaurant boasts bold and aromatic flavors year round, and with spring now here, the eatery has unveiled a few extra exciting festivities. It is time to invigorate your taste buds and tease your palate; we are taking you on a foodie adventure highlighting the spring flavors of Italy at Il Fornaio. The mouth watering pizza below is already catching your eye, is it not?

If you are from or visiting Seattle, you are in for a treat! Il Fornaio is participating in one of the year’s most anticipated culinary events: Seattle Restaurant Week. The culinary celebration goes from April 9th through the 19th, Monday through Thursday. Guests are enticed to enjoy three incredible courses for $28. Il Fornaio is welcoming newcomers and return guests to dine with them during Seattle Restaurant Week to enjoy a selection of their favorite Italian fare.

One of our favorite dishes is, hands down, the Cappellacci di Zucca — Fresh ravioli filled with butternut squash and walnuts, tomato sauce, brown butter, parmesan and crispy sage. The main entree is simply incredible. Pair the dish with an amazing Italian wine and voila, Bon Appétit!

From April 2-15th, Il Fornaio celebrates the Italian region of Calabria for Festa Regionale. During this time, Il Fornaio will offer fun promotions for passport holders, a special flavorful menu from the region with featured wines, and an exclusive three course dining option for $31.99. If you have an opportunity to dine during Festa Regionale, our top pick on the exclusive menu is the Maccarruni ca N’Duja e Melangiane — Tubular spaghetti with spicy Calabrian sausage, fried eggplant and marinara sauce.

If you have to miss the excitement of this authentic culinary spotlight at Festa Regionale, don’t fret because Puglia will be the featured Festa Regionale beginning May 7th.

Now all that is left for you is to make a reservation for lunch or dinner and begin your dining expedition in true Italian style.
