Just added to the Ristorante Firenze wine list, three red wines from very different regions in Italy. Terradora Dipaolo Aglianico ($10 glass/$29 bottle) is a medium-to-full bodied wine from Campania, in the South of Italy. Cantina Valle Tritana, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is a classic varietal at a great price ($8 glass/$24 bottle) from Abruzzo (central Eastern Italy). Finally, the cream of this crop, the Cantine San Marzano Primitivo di Manduria Anniversario 62 Riserva, and old-vine reserve Primitivo from Puglia (heel of the boot) that just loves food! Stop in for Happy Hour for 1/3 off the glasses and on Wednesday night for half-price bottles. You will not be disappointed in this mini-tour of Italian wines!
Ristorante Firenze is happy to announce that Davidus Cigars will be holding a Puff n Pint event in the Peroni Beer Garden on the first Wednesday of each month this Summer.

The May issue of Baltimore Style Magazine featured Ristorante Firenze in the Restaurant Deconstructed column. I hope you get a chance to see the print version, as it contains many more photos…expertly taken. We were quite grateful to be covered by such a great magazine, which did an outstanding job telling our story and showing our wares. Grazie!

Ristorante Firenze kicked off the Peroni Beer Garden in style with a mini Beer Truck event on May 4th. We enjoyed a rare break in the wet weather, and had a great crowd. Once the wet Spring showers pass, we will be open Thursday-Saturday at 4PM. We also plan to host special events, and can cater your private party. Details may be seen at PeroniBeerGarden.com.
Chef Zachary Leonardi was featured on WBAL-TV news on Sunday, April 29th. Two separate segments, featuring Scallops and the Firenze Burger, highlighted some new additions to the menu. He also promoted the grand opening of the Beer Garden. Thanks to WBAL for the invitation.
Enjoy great taste and savings during the 2018 Baltimore County Restaurant Week, January 19 through February 3.
