True Taste of Italy Newcomers' Dinner

Located in the East Village, this cozy restaurant is owned and operated by native Italians from the Rimini region. This area has a distinct memorable cuisine. Check it out for yourself! Scroll down for a complete menu. All-you-can-eat buffet features a great selection of food (regular and vegetarian), as well as sodas, juices, fruits, and deserts. Also served throughout the entire evening will be a trademark aperitif — a delicious blend of white rum and various fruit juices. All of the above will cost only $40 per person IF PAID IN ADVANCE.
Other alcoholic beverages could be purchased at the bar: bottled beer $5, glass of wine $5, cocktails or mixed drinks $8, small carafe of wine (equals to 3-4 glasses) $12, large carafe of wine (equals to 6-8 glasses) $18. What a bargain! (All drink prices are deeply discounted and already include tax and tip.)
