La Spinetta Wine Dinner at Il Pittore

Surrender yourself to a night of opulence.

You’ll feel good about it, I promise, and you’ll feel it the moment you walk in. It might, at first, feel like it’s too much; the hostesses are too pretty, the lighting is too perfect, it smells too good. But then you’ll stop and remember the days you dreamt of being where you were at this exact moment, in one of the best restaurants in the city, drinking some of the best wines in the world. That’s when the word “too” goes up for interpretation.

On Tuesday, May 7thGiorgio Rivetti, of world-renown La Spinetta winery, will be joining chef Chris Painter for a night of Italian splendor. The wines are rare—some you won’t find anywhere in Pennsylvania, and others you won’t find anywhere in the country. And just as rare are occasions such as these, and while each seat is $225, there are only 40 seats left. Call to reserve.
