Shout “Viva Italia” for this Couples’ Dinner

January 13 @ 6:00 pm


If there’s any country in the world that knows how the proper way to do dinner, it’s Italy. And if there are any hosts in the world who know how to supply wine for said dinner, it is Pamela and Anthony Cmelak! From the wine to the food, everything vibes in seamless conviviality and passion for gastronomical delight. Join your hosts January 13, 2024, at Luogo for seemingly endless courses of expertly paired Italian wines. From start to finish, the evening will have you travel through Italy’s finest winegrowing regions and taste from top producers. It’s all that and a box of cannolis.

Luogo (meaning “place” in Italian) is Anthony Scotto’s fresh take on upscale Italian fare offering iconic dishes with a focus on Mediterranean cuisine. A famed New York restaurateur, Scotto visited Nashville many times and decided to relocate his family here with the opening of Luogo. The kitchen of this critically acclaimed restaurant is overseen by Chef Marco Rossi. Chef Rossi, of Nashville’s Tartufo fame, had left the middle Tennessee area to lead the culinary team of Foresta in Abingdon, Virginia. We are thrilled that Luogo has brought Chef Rossi back to Nashville!

The wine lineup is an Italian wine lover’s dream lineup. Barbaresco from Produttori, Brunello from Altesino, Ornellaia, and GAJA, just to name a few. All from highly regarded vintages and vineyards.

Love Italian wines paired with sublime cuisine? Then grab your date and practice your best “Viva Italia!” All you need to do is lock in your spot at this soiree… Cin Cin!
