Winter Specials and Cocktails are here!

Here’s your winter dining forecast: a warming food trend, with a riff on risotto and a new take on a traditional dish! We’ve been cooking up a storm recently and created two terrific specials for the season.  Orzo ‘Risotto’ with Vegetables takes rice-shaped orzo pasta and simmers it like risotto in butter, garlic, stock and […]

Warm Up with Fall Flavors

Wine and Thyme Braised Lamb Ragu is a perfect fall dish… rich, slow-simmered lamb with garlic, tomatoes, red wine, carrots, onions, and lots of fresh organic thyme, served with Bob’s Red Mill polenta cooked with butter and parmesan.

Pasqua’s vineyards are near the charming city of Verona, where the real-life Juliet’s […]

Food and Wine Pairings for Fall

Spaghetti & Meatballs is Pastini’s everyday best-seller, but it’s really comforting on a crisp autumn day. We like to pair it with Pastini Rosso, our excellent everyday red wine. Made for us in Italy with 100% Sangiovese by respected winemaker Antonio Sanguineti, its easy-drinking style features tasty cherry fruit, earthy notes and a soft finish. […]

We think our summer specials bring the best parts of the season to your table. For a taste of farm-fresh goodness, […]
