We’re celebrating a special occasion tonight at Nicoletta — the 50th birthday of a beloved family member! Nothing like pizza and gelato to commemorate fifty great years and the next chapter in life. Since we had a large group, we ordered family style and shared everything from stromboli and arancini to meatballs and pizza. We also each received a little bowl of the best Italian wedding soup on the planet, which I was super excited about! To top off the celebration, we ordered a round of fior di latte gelatos with a variety of tasty toppings, including my two favorites: salted caramel and espresso caramel. Thanks to Chef Michael White and the awesome team at Nicoletta for a fantastic meal!
