St. Kilda's Italiano SpecTAPular - una giornata fantastica!

Saturday's Italiano SpecTAPular started with bang. Berlusconi, Pantalone, Mario & even Snooki all the way from Jersey Shore were in the house to celebrate.

The Taphouse was transformed into an intimate Italian trattoria - complete with red checkered table cloths and wine bottles with candles. "David" was scene around the place and was particularly popular with the ladies.

Filippo, our Italian accordion entertainment, worked the crowd with his renditions of popular Italian classics.

20 great Italian beers were featured and 17 had never been in on tap in Australia before. The most popular beers of the day were "My Antonia" - the Dogfish Head/ Birra del Borgo Imperial Pilsner collaboration along with "Anniversario 7" from Birra del Borgo.

The kitchen pumped out delicious meatball & provolone sandwiches and delicious, authentic lasagne. Antipasto platters went perfect with a tasting paddle (or 2).

We can't wait for the next one - Oktoberfest 2012 is scheduled for October 13, so stay tuned for more information!

Ciao, tutti!
