The second annual Valentine’s Dinner Drive-thru at Casa Italiana brings Amoré per Tutti!

Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14) falls on a Tuesday this year, so you may be casting about for a low stress option to celebrate your love, while still maintaining a restful “weeknight routine.”

Burien’s Casa Itlaiana Italian Cultural Center has you covered.

What began as a pandemic safety option was so popular that their drive-through dinner returns this year as a terrific option for folks who would love to enjoy a delicious Italian dinner in the comfort of their own location, without the cooking.

Take the night off from cooking, while still enjoying gourmet Italian cuisine and benefiting a local nonprofit to boot!

Let Casa take care of your romantic Valentine’s Day dinner plans! It’s their second-annual Cena di San Valentino.

Make a reservation now to drive-thru on Tuesday, Feb. 14 from 4-7 p.m. for your romantic Italian dinner take-out. You can set a fancy or simple table and enjoy your dinner your way, on your timeline!

The menu includes the following:

  • Arancini (Italian rice balls that are stuffed, coated with breadcrumbs and deep fried, crispy crunchy and addictive!)
  • 4-layer Meat Lasagna
  • Caesar Salad
  • Crostini Bread
  • Prosecco Splits
  • Torta Vulcano al Cioccolato (Chocolate Volcano Cake) for 2

Cost is $110 per couple, and individual tickets are available for $65.

You may also like to order some of their new Casa Italiana label vino Rosso or Bianco. Washington State award-winning choices caringly curated by the Casa add a distinctive element to any meal and are available anytime, not just for this event.

AND…just in case you still haven’t thought of a unique and memorable gift to lavish on your loved one, purchasing a custom engraved brick which will be laid in the coming “Piazza del Popolo” in the Casa courtyard. You can immortalize your sentiments with a personalized message for only $100 per brick.

You can help Casa Italiana build its future Piazza del Popolo, or the “People’s Plaza.” This will be a place where friends can gather for community, music, food and festivity. Inscription on the brick is 3 lines (up to 20 characters per line), and can be in English, Italian, or both. Purchase is a tax-deductible donation, just fill out one order form for each brick. Major credit cards, PayPal and check accepted.

Of those already purchased, we’ve seen some lovely sentiments: honoring loved ones no longer with us, being proud of your heritage, listing friends names or important dates, sharing a sentimental message. Let’s add a special message of love to that list! If you need a little inspiration, some finished bricks are already set out for viewing before groundbreaking. You can visit the Caffe, open Tues-Sat from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

The deadline is Dec. 31, 2023, so get yours now – click the link below.
