CLASSES & EVENTS
MONDAY, TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY EVENINGS
Our much-requested private pasta making classes are back!
During these highly intimate hands-on class in our pasta-making window, Alex teaches a small group of 4-5 people the art of handmade pasta -- from creating your own volcano of dough, to shaping 4 different forms. You'll learn about the origins and various techniques, and go home with a box full of your hard work.
Following the hands-on portion of the evening, you'll enjoy a generous family-style meal from our Michelin Bib Gourmand-awarded team, giving participants the opportunity to experience the spirit of true Italian hospitality at the best seats in the house, our pasta counter. You'll indulge in dishes from Tortello’s rotating menu of fresh pasta such as tortelli di burrata and chiusoni alla gallurese, along with a selection of seasonal verdure (vegetables) and dessert. Guests will receive a welcome glass of prosecco along with a bottle of our house wine for the group.
Due to the small intimate space of our pasta window in, we require a full buyout of the class for a single group of 4 people for $545, with an option to add a 5th person. We are unable to do partial bookings at this time.
One of the best ways to experience Italy is at a sagra. These village festivals celebrate whatever the local agricultural star is, and bring together food, music, and community. Thanks to everyone who made our 3rd annual Chestnut Sagra such a success. We can't wait to honor truffles again and bring the sagra from the small towns of Italy to the streets of Wicker Park. Stay tuned for more details!
