With a decadent first course (or Primo Piatto) of Gnocchi della Zucca – butternut squash gnocchi with wild mushrooms, herbs, truffle oil and reggiano the delightful menu then masterfully moves to the second course (or Secondo Piatto) featuring “Sguazeto” alla Friulana – a lamb stew “Friuli-style” with roasted root vegetables. Each course is precisely paired with a fine Italian wine.  The evening fashionably concludes with a delightful selection of desserts or Dolce from Foxwoods’ award-winning Pastry Shop including Fritole – spiced rum fritters and house-made Limoncello.
