As an Italian delicatessen and marketplace, Giolitti’s is committed to providing our customers with an authentic in-house and at-home casual dining experience. A staple in any authentic casual (or osteria) Italian dining experience is always a bottle or glass of rosa wine, particularly in warmer months. With rosa wine gaining its notoriety straight from the shores of Sicily, it’s a semi-sweet blend that’s refreshingly crisp on the palate. Here’s a few of our favorite Giolitti’s heartwarming, filling Italian appetizers and entrees that pair perfectly with the crisp bite of rosa wine.
Italian Fresh Caprese and Rosa Wine
Giolitti’s Deli stacks freshly sliced mozzarella with thick vine-ripened tomatoes, green basil, and extra virgin olive oil with balsamic glaze. As one of our favorite springtime and summer month appetizers, caprese is light and perfect for pairing with a glass of sparkling rosa wine while outdoor entertaining or enjoying a summer dinner with your loved ones. We have fresh mozzarella available to purchase in our marketplace, or caprese available to purchase for $6.95.
Chicken Piccata with Pasta
Chicken piccata is an Italian classic that features zested lemon notes, capers, fresh parsley, and sauteed chicken cutlets topped in a delicate lemon-caper sauce. While you can choose to have your chicken piccata served over pasta or potatoes, we personally recommend pairing chicken piccata with pasta when consuming a glass of rosa wine. Our chicken piccata entree is only $12.95, which means that you can have the authentic taste of Italian cuisine at an affordable price point. Now that’s guaranteed to keep la tua familgia felice!
Neapolitan Artisanal Margherita Pizza
Our neapolitan margherita pizza features an authentic Italian marinara, thick-sliced vine tomato, white mozzarella, and herbaceous basil guaranteed to leave your taste buds content. Each of our neapolitan pizzas are 14” in diameter, artisanal, and hand-kneaded to provide a crispy crust within each bite. At only $12.95, it’s a top choice for Friday night dinners with your children over a glass of rosa wine. Mangia bene!
