Spirit of Italy Tours Launch Event at Ristorante da Mario Era Un Successo!

by Vicky - Spirit of Italy Tours on March 24th, 2010

My Spirit of Italy Tours launch event took place on Sunday. A fantastico time was had by all! Sandro Costanza of Ristorante Da Mario offered my guests his warm southern Italian hospitality and made everyone feel so welcome with beverages and delicious appetizers. My friend Barbara Bardelli-Rindge with Tesoro Treasures had her Italian ceramics on display and the restaurant looked especially beautiful with the natural sunlight filtering onto the Tuscan gold-toned yellows of the walls; a great backdrop for me to talk about my Harvest Italia tour to Tuscany. I also had olive oil for my guests to sample from Casa Falcioni, the olive grove where we’ll be picking olives this November, that our friend’s Tanya and Silvano Falcioni brought us from their 2009 harvest which was a huge hit. Ristorante Da Mario was the perfect setting for relaxing and promoting the tour. I’m hoping to stage another event there in early summer! (Special thanks to my hubby Chris and son Dante who helped with so much of the event!)
