The food served is inspired by Italian street food and represents different regions of the infamous country.

“Street food in Italy is food that you can easily walk around with, it is rustic, quick and fresh,” Matthews said. “It is not overly prepared and is made out of basic, fresh ingredients.”

Some of these dishes include peppered yellow fin tuna crostini, espresso rubbed lamb, saffron arancini and grilled mission figs.

“We also make our own cheese, pasta and sausage, so all our food is genuine Italian cuisine,” Matthews said. “It is a relaxing atmosphere and for the price it is a really great value.”

The dinner will take place on the breathtaking patio of Ciao Bella.

“Our patio is beautiful and features of magnificent fountain,” Matthews said. “We will also have a jazz band performing during the dinner, so guests can relax and enjoy some great food and entertainment.”

There are still tickets left to the Italian Street Fair Dinner and they can be purchased for $59 a person.
