Chefs Joe and Angela Cicala of Cicala Restaurant at the Divine Lorraine is hosting a monthly dinner series dubbed Dinner with The Cicalas. The communal celebration of Italian food, culture and tradition started in 2018-19, when Joe and Angela Cicala invited guests into their home to learn how to make and enjoy authentic Italian Sunday dinners.
The experience was so popular that they now host it as a monthly dinner series at the restaurant, offering an authentic taste of Italian cuisine and hospitality. The couple brings people together over a shared love of good food, good company, and good times. As guests get to know each other over the family-style meal, the classics of Dean Martin, Louis Prima, and Frank Sinatra play in the background, adding to the ambiance of the convivial evening.
