Our antipasto dinner salad is the perfect complement to a hot summer evening, especially when paired with a bright bottle of summer rosé.

Italian Summer Dinner Fare: Spaghetti Aglio e Olio and Eggplant Parmigiana
Hot summer days can make you hungry for filling meals that are light on the stomach but packed with flavor. At Giolitti’s, our healthy Italian summer dinner fare includes flavorful Spaghetti Aglio e Olio and Eggplant Parmigiana. Our Spaghetti Aglio e Olio features freshly minced garlic, extra virgin olive oil, and spaghetti topped with grated parmesan. Our Eggplant Parmigiana is traditional Italian style with breaded and fried eggplant, layers of baked Italian cheeses, fresh seasonings, and marinara served with a warm baguette. Deliziosa!
Antipasto Dinner Salad
Our Antipasto dinner salad is a garden salad featuring Genoa salami, briny capicola, thick provolone, artichokes, kalamatas, and our housemade Italian dressing. We serve all of our dinner salads with a fresh slice of baguette or house bread, and it’s the perfect entree when you’re searching for a light dinner that’s protein-packed to keep you fueled after a summer day. We love pairing our Antipasto dinner salad with a bottle of rosé from our marketplace, which is perfect for picnics.
Chicken Piccata with Pasta or Potatoes
Our Chicken Piccata is hand-breaded in Italian breadcrumbs and seasonings, broiled to crisp perfection, and tossed in a house made lemon-caper sauce. You can eat your Chicken Piccata over fresh pasta or lightly baked potatoes, which pairs well with your choice in a glass of crisp white wine at an additional cost. Come to Giolitti’s Delicatessen and Marketplace for all of your Italian summer dinner favorites!
