Join us for a special dinner in celebration of Friends of Italy Society of Hawaii's 30th anniversary on Saturday, April 4, 2020. At 6 pm we will begin with an intimate piano concert by Drs. Daniela Minerbi and Carol Beresiwsky. Followed at 6:30-9pm by a five-course dinner prepared by ten talented gourmands, who will be cooking the signature dish from their own distinct Italian region. Enjoy a brief introduction from each chef and gain insight on what makes their regional cuisine so unique.
