Anniversario Italiano: Paesano's Celebrate's 30 Years

. August 1, 2014.

What’s to celebrate? Just ask Paesano’s owner, Mike Roddy: “My wife Bridget and I opened [Paesano’s] in 1984 with a concept for a simple Italian Restaurant. Fast forward 30 years and we now offer Italian Language classes, an annual trip to Italy, movie nights, winemaker dinners and wine tastings. We have grown and evolved thanks to our loyal customer base, many who have become our good friends. We are so proud to be a part of this wonderful community.” Become a part of the Paesano community on Thursday, August 14, 6:30 pm for an Italian feast and festivities and on Friday, August 15, 6:30pm for a 30th Anniversary retro dance party, with old favorites on the set list, and on the plate.
