Join Eataly Boston at La Scuola as they take inspiration from Primo and Secondo, two Italian immigrants determined to offer their American restaurant guests the feast of a lifetime in Big Night.
In both Italian and Italian-American films, scenes that feature a specific food or traditional dish stand the test of time in the hearts of movie lovers. Who can forget Clemenza teaching Michael Corleone how to prepare tomato sauce with sausage and meatballs in The Godfather? Back in Italy, Alberto Sordi famously devours a plate ofmaccheroni wearing a baseball cap in the iconic and hilarious film, Un Americano a Roma. These films all reaffirm the importance of food in Italian culture as a means of bringing family and friends together. To have a good meal is one of life’s pure enjoyments that is so thoroughly and infinitely understood by Italians, and Eataly would like to share this sentiment with their guests.
In this class, guests will:
- Help prepare a menu inspired by Big Night, the 1996 cult hit starring Tony Shalhoub and Stanley Tucci
- Participate in a hands-on cooking experience with La Scuola’s chef
- Enjoy three courses with paired wines

Beverage Director Gregg Guertin takes you back in time to the way wine used to be.
During the next Terra Wine Dinner, Eataly’s Beverage Director Gregg Guertin takes us back in time to the way wine used to be—before the addition of pesticides, chemicals, and additives to today’s agriculture. Each wine pairing during this multi-course dinner will be an expressive, unique, and raw example of grapes in their truest form so that you may taste distinctive characteristics of the grape varietals while appreciating terroir and the growers’ techniques. Along with natural wines, you’ll enjoy biodynamic wines—bottles which are made with a holistic view on agriculture and balance the resonance between vine, man, earth, and stars.
Just like the wine, the five courses prepared by Terra’s Executive Chef Dan Bazzinotti will also draw from primitive roots of cooking and ingredients while showcasing Terra’s wood-fired grill as the main attraction. These dishes will utilize meats from local farms using organic and sustainable methods; wild and sustainable Massachusetts seafood; and local, organic, and foraged fruits and vegetables showcased in their true form to create the perfect pairing with each wine.
During the dinner, you will have the opportunity to learn about the ingredients and stories behind our wines and food directly from our experts. Chef Dan will take you on a journey through all the dinner’s ingredients including the Frantoi Cutrera Primo organic olive oil from Sicily used in the preparation of local seafood; the Country Hen eggs that give our housemade pasta its bright, yellow color; the local, humane, non-GMO meat raised at Chickering Farm in Westmoreland, NH; and our fresh produce from local farms, foragers, and purveyors who strive to keep the quality intact.
Book your seat for another installment of a Terra Wine Dinner under the stars. Stay tuned for the full menu!
At this dinner, you will:
- Indulge in five courses featuring local, organic, sustainable ingredients cooked over the Terra fire
- Enjoy natural & biodymanic wine pairings with each course and learn about the distinctive characteristics of grape varietals
- Meet and chat with Executive Chef Dan Bazzinotti and Beverage Director Gregg Guertin about the stories behind each ingredient and wine pairing
- Experience the magical ambiance of Eataly’s rooftop restaurant, Terra

During this multi-course dinner, Eataly will take you on a journey through the flavors of Liguria’s coastal towns.
Home to the famed Cinque Terre, Liguria’s turquoise coastline is dotted with some of the most beautiful spots in Italy. And right up there with the breathtaking views are fresh flavors of the coast!
During this multi-course dinner, Eataly will take you on a journey through the flavors of Liguria’s coastal towns. From focaccia to pesto Genovese, some of their favorite staples come from this Tyrrhenian gem. Enjoy fresh pesto made in the true Genovese-style using a mortar and taste some of the most traditional seafood prepared by their chef. The four savory courses will allow you to travel through Liguria as you discover the unique traditions of this maritime region. The dinner will end on a sweet note with a final fifth course handcrafted by their expert pastry team.
And because an authentic Italian dinner is incomplete without vino, the dinner will also feature optional wine pairings available for purchase and selected by their Beverage Manager Gregg Guertin. Liguria’s native varietals include Vermentino, Dolcetto, and Sangiovese.
Spring is in the air! Don’t miss this tasting experience as you take a trip to Liguria’s coast celebrating their fresh ingredients (without ever leaving Boston)!
