We begin with a stop in LITTLE ITALY at PRESTI'S BAKERY. The aroma of freshly baked donuts, bread and cookies will great you at the door. There is no shortage of wonderful treats to tempt your taste buds at this bakery. You will find delicious brownies, cannoli, cassata cake, chocolate mousse, cream puffs, assorted rich cheesecakes, tarts, tiramisu, ιclairs and so much more.
Immigrants from Italy came to this country seeking a better life and settled in a neighborhood we now call Little Italy. We will have a quick tour of the church that has served them for over one hundred years, the HOLY ROSARY CHURCH.
MAGGIANO'S LITTLE ITALY, located within the confines of BEACHWOOD PLACE MALL, offers authentic Italian cuisine in an atmosphere often said to be reminiscent of pre-World War II Little Italy. We will enjoy a unique dining experience filled with nostalgic Italian charm. Today our group will dine on their family-style luncheon. Our menu will include freshly baked Ciabatta Rolls, beverages, and appetizers of stuffed mushrooms, bruschetta and Caesar salad. Entrιes include pasta dishes of Spaghetti with meatball or sausage, Chicken and Spinach Manicotti, and Mom's Lasagna with Marinara Sauce. All this will be followed by desserts of Tiramisu and Spumoni.
