Becki’s Blog: La Tavola 2016

I can’t believe it has been nine years since I went to Italy with my parents; that was definitely the trip of a lifetime. We did a semi-independent tour of Italy where we visited three cities: Rome, Florence, and Venice over the course of a week and half. This was my first time ever leaving North America, and there’s no other place to go in Europe that’s better than Italy! I was mesmerized by the experience, from the food to the culture to the language. It’s definitely something I will never forget and I’d love to return to Italy someday.

I haven’t been to La Tavola in the two years I’ve been working at the Chamber—I plan to this year, though!—but I’ve heard it’s an evening filled with music, chatter, and wonderful Italian food that can only come second-best to the real thing: the delicious food we would get in an Italian ristorante!

This year, La Tavola returns to Joy Street in South Cape Village. Here, you will be able to enjoy a delicious five-course Italian dinner while socializing with your friends and neighbors. Over the chatter, you might hear the soothing sounds of Italian tenor, Aaron Caruso. As some of you may know, he sang at last year’s La Tavola Italian Feast. Along with the five-course meal, you will be able to enjoy Italian wine and local Cape Cod beer. There will be a variety of food on your plate, from bread rolls to minestrone soup to pasta. It’s all the fixings for an Italian dinner!

Wow, I’m getting hungry typing this! Aren’t you getting hungry as well? If you are and you can’t wait to savor this wonderful Italian feast, then purchase your La Tavola ticket today! Tickets are $50 per person and should be purchased in advance. You can do so by contacting us at the Mashpee Chamber of Commerce! Call us at 508-477-0792 or visit our La Tavola page online at
