There are a plethora of options in food and wine at LIVIN’ Italy. This deli, restaurant, and bar cannot be a more honest Italian spot. Created to feel like a second home, their mission has been quite successful in more ways than one.

They host fun events such as Italian afternoon tea where you can experience the ultimate taste of Italy with classics such as Mini Arancini Suppli or Polenta & Friarielli, satisfy that sweet tooth with a Mini Tiramisu or a Frollino Biscuit with Strawberry Jam, then top it all off with Glass of Italian Prosecco.
