Viva Italia at Italian Food & Vino Festival
The inaugural Italian Food & Vino Festival was a celebration of all things Italian -food, wine and fun!
The inaugural Italian Food & Vino Festival was a sell-out success with three days of celebrating all things Italian. The brainchild of Noosa Waterfront’s chef-owner Andrea Ravezzani, the fun began with an Opening Party at Andrea’s place on Friday before a full day of celebrations at Noosa Woods, Hastings Street on Saturday and ending with a Closing Party at Lucio’s Marina on the Sunday.
Guests were transported to Italy for The Ferrari Long Lunch with Noosa’s best Italian chefs, including Andrea, Chef Luca Ciano, Lucio’s Marina and Adriano Zumbo dishing up a four-course feast with Italian wines, cocktails and of course, Limoncello! Bellissimo!
Festival-goers indulged in an Italian food and drink market with pizza, pasta, panini, gelato, espresso, cannoli and more; Chef demonstrations in Nonna’s Kitchen; a game of Bocce; Ferrari’s exclusively from Italy; and live music, including a Pavarotti tribute.
The smart guests took advantage of Go Noosa’s free buses and discounted tickets on Noosa Ferry to arrive in style.
The Closing Party at Lucio’s Marina saw Matteo Galletto and his team open the doors for a waterfront fiesta – there was food, drink, dancing and fun! Bravo!
