|As every year for the past 12 years, Italians of London brought a bit of Ferragosto - Italian most important Summer holiday -- to London, by organising a Pizzata night.
Well, what a spectacular event this was! We had quite a few problems with the very high number of people who came to enjoy the night : at one point we counted over 270 people patiently waiting outside the venue. Unfortunately the excellent "Rosso Pomodoro", the italian restaurant where we organised the night, had room for only 198 seats, and this was with quite a lot of squeezing! We are really sorry for the all the people who waited outside and could not get in - unfortunately, our events are extremely popular and many people turn up without letting us know in advance - now you know why we never disclose in advance the details of the venue when we organise an event!
In the end, it was an eventful night - we had Italians coming from all over Italy (many on vacation. visiting friends), and quite a few foreign friends, in particular from England (of course!), Nigeria, France, Switzerland, Turkey, Japan, Philippines, Holland.
A special thank you the the staff of Rosso Pomodoro in Covent Garden - their support and assistance was fundamental to the success of the night - and in particular to restaurant manager Daniele, to Beppe and to Lucia.
