Syracuse’s annual Italian Fest has taken over Downtown this weekend.
I spent most of my life feasting on Italian food and I haven’t yet found a cuisine that compares.
I was born in and am also a citizen of Italy, though I don’t remember it. I spent my early years in a strictly old school Italian house hold. Nanni and Papi seated at the dinner table as Grandma served up meatballs and red sauce. Plus I grew up in Utica, Ny which has got to be the Italian American Cuisine capital of the country.
Drinking Peroni while my wife sipped on Moscato, we sampled calamari, greens, chicken riggies, tomato pie, and cannoli.
