A taste of Italy at the Italian-American Festival

Italian Festival-Jerry Triano taste pasta fajoli with Deb and Pat Baldino

Now, that’s service! Jerry Triano, left, gets a taste of pasta fagioli, served up to him by Deb and Pat Baldino. Summer rains couldn’t damper the Italian-American Festival on Center Street last weekend. Locals came out in force to taste the good, Italian food and enjoy the ethnicity, music, and festivities at the annual weekend festival sponsored by the Sons of Italy, Sorelle d’Italia and Southington UNICO.
