Italian Feast of 7 Fishes

December 17th to the 23rd Rastrelli’s will be featuring different seafood dishes to celebrate the holiday in the traditional Italian way.  Tradition holds that no meat should be consumed on Christmas Eve (vigilia di Natale), so Italians eat seafood. But they don’t just eat one dish, they typically eat seven (the number is thought to represent the seven sacraments). And some families take it to the extreme and serve even more.  So each night the week before Christmas we will feature a different seafood dish.  Check out our specials page for more details on what is being served.
