On Saturday, May 22nd, Silicon Valley Elites spent a beautiful afternoon experiencing the warmth and gusto of Naples at AcquaPazza Ristorante in downtown San Mateo. Guests enjoyed sampling delicious Italian cuisine and hospitality from charming proprietors, Enzo, Tullio and Valerio Rosano, three brothers from Naples.
Enzo's lovable aunt Zia demonstrated the technique of making gnocchi at a special station set up at the front of the airy restaurant. Yelpers enjoyed tasting three different gnocchi dishes passed out throughout the event.
In the back wine room, local winemaker Dominick Chirichillo of Domenico Winery provided tastings of their Italian wine offerings. Upstairs in the mezzanine, Ploom was on hand for smokers and non-smokers to experience. This new to the scene device allowed guests to "ploom" smokeless tobacco and herbal blended Pods.
