One year after opening in the heart of East Village, Monzu Fresh Pasta will celebrate its first anniversary on Thursday, June 6 by welcoming San Diego’s growing tribe of pasta-loving patrons to enjoy celebratory menu specials, including the long-awaited return of pasta flights, complimentary Prosecco and more.

On June 6 between 5 and 9 p.m. guests will be able to indulge in the one-day-only return of Monzu Fresh Pasta’s pasta flights via a prix fixe trio of favorites from this past year, including Ravioli di Magro (filled with spinach, ricotta and cheese, served with butter cream, fresh sage, raisins and pine nuts), Agnolotti di Brasato (filled with wine-braised pork and beef, served with a delicate meat reduction sauce, fresh sage and cheese) and Raviolone Cacio e Pepe (giant raviolo stuffed with pecorino cheese, ricotta and fresh ground black pepper, served with butter cream, cheese and pepper). This special menu item is a throwback to Monzu’s original pasta flights, which were available for a limited time when Monzu first opened – and which put its authentic fresh pastas on the map for many San Diegans.

In addition to pasta flights, on June 6 Monzu Fresh Pasta will offer a complimentary glass of Prosecco (or soft drink for those under 21) to all guests with purchase, a complimentary limited edition Ricotta & Pear Cake with the purchase of any bottle of wine and a complimentary Monzu Fresh Pasta canvas tote bag with every $30 minimum purchase. Plus, all who visit Monzu on June 6 will receive a voucher for 20% off their next visit.

Pasta flights, complimentary drinks, dessert and tote bags will be available while supplies last. Reservations are highly recommended and may be secured at www.monzufreshpasta.com.
