What an incredible night this will be! First, let me tell you about the food from their release:

"Executive Chef Filomena Lombardi was born and raised in Calabria, Italy. She grew up on a farm taking care of her family of seven and was so busy with that she never even learned to ride a bicycle. Chef Filomena received accolades and was inducted into the Chaîne de Rôtisseurs Food and Wine Society as Chef Rôtisseur in 2012. The Chaîne des Rôtisseurs is the world’s oldest international gastronomic society, founded in Paris in 1248. It is devoted to preserving the camaraderie and pleasures of the table and to promoting excellence in all areas of the hospitality arts.

All dinners include appetizers of fried calamari and fresh mozzarella and tomato. Caesar salad and choice of 3 entrees: Chicken Balsamic, Three Cheese Ravioli w/ Pomodoro sauce or Salmon Provencal. There's Cheesecake for dessert."
