So, your summer trip to Italy got scrapped in favor of a staycation – scoot over to Sage on Wednesday, September 24th to enjoy the flavors of Italy right in the South End. Chef-owner Anthony Susi pairs a four-course menu with Masi wines – premium wines from Veneto. Dinner, which includes deliciousness like tuna carpaccio with baby arugula and shaved fennel; and slow-roasted ribeye with braised mushrooms and truffle panzerotti, costs $65 per person, not including tax or gratuity. Get there around 6:30pm for the cocktail reception followed by dinner at 7:30pm. So there’s no need to wait ’til you’ve accumulated more vacation days to go for full Italian immersion.
