Truffles and pasta and wine, oh my! On Monday, November 12th, Il Casale in Belmont is settling into the season with a six-course tour of Italian pastas and wines, featuring specialties from all over the boot including, of course, white truffles from Alba. At 6:30pm you’ll be warmly welcomed with a glass of bubbles and an assortment of appetizers.
