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!

2. KISS FRENCH. DRINK ITALIAN.

Rosé is the drink of summer! Yes, it’s a French word — but at heart, it’s an Italian wine. And now, we have even more reasons — 60 more, to be precise — for you to raise a glass. This summer, La Piazza is launching Summer Rosé Passport, complete with a menu of 60-plus bottles of rosé, each for only $30. Each bottle gives you a stamp in your passport; if you drink 10 throughout the summer, we'll give you a $50 gift card.

3. 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.

4. PLAY WITH TOPPINGS.

Mozzarella, tomato sauce, pesto — on pizza, of course! Join us every day for different pizza events at La Pizza & La Pasta, including hands-on workshops, guest chef nights, and fun shapes for bambini (parents can have flings, too, guys).

5. MAKE IT SHORT, SWEET, AND SICILIAN.

Wait, what were you picturing? We're talking cannoli, people! Get ready for our brand-new Cannoli Bar, coming soon! Our pastry chef will fill your authentic Sicilian cannoli right before your eyes with your preference of creamy filling.

Stay tuned for details!

6. 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.

7. SAVOR TO THE LAST LICK.

Surprise your taste buds with our new savory gelato! After weeks of experimenting, our expert pastry chefs have created a line of gelati salati, taking inspiration from classic Italian dishes, from cacio e pepe to red wine. In other words: you'll never have to choose between your favorite Italian dish (or drink!) and dessert ever again.
