7 Tips for Your Summer Fling

7 Tips for Your Summer Fling

Summer is here! Tis the season to eat more gelato, drink rosé all day, and — best of all — have a fling. With sunny days and starry nights, the conditions are perfect. Trust us: we’re Italian. We have some experience in l’amore.

So, whether you’re single and looking or want to fan the flames with your partner, check out our seven tips for a summer fling!

1. REGRET NOTHING. AND DRINK NEGRONI.

Kick off your fling during Negroni Week from June 5 to 11! Bittersweet and refreshing, this classic Italian cocktail has made many a summer match. (Plus, we’re donating proceeds to our favorite charitable cause. Showing that you care never hurts.)

Explore our Negroni Week offerings, including a launch party, pop-up class, and special cocktails.

2. LIGHT THE FIRE.

Stoke your romance over the open flames at Terra, our third-floor restaurant that centers around a wood-burning Italian grill. Surrounded by greenery in our sunny and secret oasis, you'll share seasonal grilled dishes paired with herb-infused cocktails, barrel-aged beers, and/or rare wine terroirs.

Book your table at Terra!

3. KISS FRENCH. DRINK ITALIAN.

Rosé is the drink of summer! Yes, it’s a French word — but at heart, it’s an Italian wine. Stop by La Piazza in the heart of our store to pick up a glass and wander the market in style, sip some at any of our restaurants, and bring home a bottle — why not? — from our wine shop. Best of all, we're kicking off the summer solstice in style on June 21 with a party featuring 18 varieties of Italian rosé!

4. DON’T BE AFRAID TO GET HANDSY.

For a unique date, bring your fling to La Scuola! Our cooking school’s summer schedule includes wine tastings, hands-on pasta classes, and much more.

Browse the classes.

5. MAKE IT SHORT, SWEET, AND SICILIAN.

Wait, what were you picturing? We're talking cannoli, people! Stay tuned for our brand-new Cannoli Bar, opening soon at our Boylston Street entrance, right next to the tasty coffee of Lavazza. Our pastry chef will fill your authentic Sicilian cannolo right before your eyes with your preference of ricotta, chocolate, or candied fruit.

6. GET HOOKED.

This summer, fall in love with the refreshing menu and unique atmosphere at Il Pesce, our seafood-centric restaurant in the heart of the store. Invite your fling to enjoy a satisfying meal full of tasty flavors, from smoked-fish bruschetta to shrimp spiedini, and indulge in a glass or two of wine. 'Tis the season!

"Sea" the menu.

7. KEEP IT HOT. 

For everything else, our advice is simple: bring an Italian. From late-night dinner to morning-after breakfast coffee, our market is stocked with everything you need for your summer fling.
