When they closed, the oven was donated to the Casa and has now been re-enshrined to delight pizza fans from all around the south end. You can also enjoy a delicious variety of baked goods, while sipping festive wines and beers in the beer and wine garden.

The winner will be drawn at the Festa. It’s all in celebration of the iconic Italian Scooters, with proceeds to support the installation of an elevator, allowing full accessibility to the soon to be open Banquet Hall on the upper floor of the Casa Italiana Italian Cultural Center.
