Tonight, at 7 p.m., Firenze a Tavola, the charming basement level Italian restaurant just below Parisi, at 4401 Tennyson Street, is hosting Fabio Flagiello, an Italian chef who's done time in numerous kitchens in Italy, France, Boston and California, including Risibisi restaurant in Petaluma, which was ballyhooed in the 2008 San Francisco Bay Area and Wine Country Michelin Guide. Oh, and just in case the question ever comes up during a drunken Geeks Who Drink trivia session, Flagiello worked behind the scenes and gave cooking lessons to several of the actors who appeared in Big Night.
The family-style dinner, which takes place at the community table, is $30 per person and includes four courses. Libations are extra, and tax and tip aren't included in the price tag. To reserve your spot, call 303-561-0234.
