  • Primo: Norma alla Catanese (bucatini with lightly spiced tomato sauce, pancetta, and eggplant topped with salted ricotta and basil)
  • Secondo: Guanciale di Manzo (braised beef cheeks with red wine demi-glaze). With wine pairing

Sarde a Beccafico and Cannoli will be prepared exclusively for the Friends of Italy Society of Hawaii.
