Hello everyone!
Due to the rising costs of supplies to operate our weekly pasta fundraiser, and rising costs around the world for that matter, we have updated the pricing on our menu, effective this Tuesday.
Please take note at the menu below and we appreciate your continued support.
YOU ALL have been the lifeblood of our society for the past 96 years. We are nothing but humbled at that fact and we love that we can volunteer our time each week to share our heritage with you, through food.
We thank you, we appreciate you, we love you!
Especially our neighborhood of North Hill. 🥰
