Yelp La Vita è Bella @ Joe's Pasta House

Posted by Howie

Yelp took a journey to the Old Country on Thursday to craft a beautiful life at Joe's Pasta House. Themed after classic Italian cinema, about 30 very special guests were treated to a private room where festivities were casual, dinner was sublime, accoustic comforts filled the air and the hospitality delivered an evening we won't soon forget. What a show!

Elites broke the ice with a specially prepared personal quiz and completed forms were handed to Howie K for a prize drawing. Many attendees dressed to impress, and quickly the group became familia. Owners Joe and Kassie Guzzardi were warm and informative.

Oh, and then we ate. From the eggplant parmesan (a major hit) and fried calamari to the ceasar salad and endless entrees, including cheese ravioli, chicken picatta, and crowd favorite fiery green chile alfredo, the eats left us plump and sublime. But wait, what of dessert? Three amazing samplings, including a true tiramisu. We were floored.

A lucky winner of the icebreaker enjoyed a Yelp prize package including a gift certificate, t-shirt, shwag galore and a very special pair of Elite socks. Grazie, Joe's Pasta House! This was an evening of pure bliss.

Until next time, we're dreaming of Italian nights in Rio Rancho.

It was a beautiful night & we just wanted to say thank you to Howie. It was so much fun to open our doors to & welcome the Yelp Elites into our establishment. What a great group of people; nice to see so many come together & have good time while getting to know each other; Yelp Events is just incredible!
