Ciao! This year’s Italian Festival was bellissimo! And double the size!
Held every two years and organised by Darwin’s Italian Association, this year’s event was moved to Civic Park to cater for bigger crowds (and avoid last year’s situ of running out of food…).
New location, bigger and better… it was a lovely afternoon sitting under the trees enjoying good company, good food and good (Italiano) vibes.
This year they even had a replica Trevi Fountain! Super cool.
All the usual Italian suspects were there food-wise: pasta, wood fired pizza, seafood, antipasto, panini and more. We had pasta and Italian sausage (Salsiccia) in sourdough by The Trader, which was delish! Love the The Trader gals, they can do no wrong.
It was great to see Civic Park turned into a sea of red, white and green and we’ve no doubt the party continued well into the night.
