A few weeks ago Kachet, Ashley and I got to preview the menu at IL Fornaio for the annual Dine Downtown Sacramento event that is starting next Friday!! I have never been to IL Fornaio before, which is really a shocker since I LOVE Italian, but let me tell you, everything you see below was amazinggg!! I am sooo excited to share this post with you all today! Everything you see below will be included in the Dine Downtown menu! This is a set pre-fixed menufor only 35.00! More on that in a bit! Let me get into all this yummy food first!!
Drinks & Appetizers
I always order a G&T when I go out and Kachet had some Champs!!
Our apps were as follows:
Baby squid, lightly floured & deep fried, served with spicy marinara
Pizza: Mozzarella, ham, artichokes, mushrooms, kalamata olives, oregano & tomato sauce
Main Courses & Salads
Patrick!! The best host and manager! He was so lovely and made us feel right at home during our visit!
Mixed greens, garlic croutons & shaved Grana Padano; house vinaigrette
Organic red & gold beets with red wine vinegar, wild arugula, toasted walnuts & Asiago cheese; lemon-olive oil dressing
The 13th annual Dine Downtown Restaurant Week has returned and begins January 12-21, 2018. Over 30 of Downtown’s finest restaurants will offer special 3-course dining experiences for just $35. One dollar from every Dine Downtown meal is donated to social services and food literacy programs! This annual program started in 2005, serves more than 11,000 meals and generates $5 million of sales for downtown restaurants.
Not only do you get to eat at incredible restaurants for for a fraction of the price, but you are making a difference in a child’s life. I am all about that! Ben and I haven’t decided which restaurant we will go to for Dine Downtown. They are all SO good!! For a full list of participating restaurants click here.
