Chef Francis Cratil-Cicala, whose family is rooted in the Teramo province of Abruzzo, will prepare his signature version of Sagne e Fasciul’ (Abruzzese Pasta e Fagioli) outdoors in a fire heated cauldron and serve it with Panini made with handcut porchetta.
Mingling around several wood-burning fires in Il Campo, Le Virtù’s al fresco garden dining space, guests will also enjoy: house-made hot mulled wine, Lancaster County apple cider with spiced rum; Abruzzese biscotti, pizzelle cookies and other treats; and Roasted Chestnuts.
Since opening four years ago, Le Virtu has remained true to the culinary and cultural traditions of Abruzzo. In fact, the restaurant is one of few restaurants in the United States expressly dedicated to the cuisine and culture of Abruzzo.
