When the weather warms up, Italian food may not be your go-to cuisine of choice, but it should be! There are three reasons to keep eating Italian food at Pinocchio’s when the weather warms up.
Fresh Ingredients = Health
When the sun comes out and the weather warms up, eating fresh ingredients makes all of the difference. From sourced Extra Virgin Olive Oil to freshly baked bread, and flavorful sauces, fresh ingredients keep your palate satisfied while also promoting digestion when the weather warms up.
In warm weather, we inevitably try to make healthier food choices. Fresh Italian ingredients, like those we use in our kitchen, have numerous proven health benefits. Rich in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, Italian foods like olives, tomatoes, leafy vegetables, and grains are abundant in energizing essential nutrients. As the weather gets warmer, and you find yourself enjoying outdoor activities in Colorado, you can fuel your body with the freshest and healthiest Italian ingredients.
Refreshing Summer Menu Options
Many people lose their appetite when the weather gets warmer. Luckily, there are many refreshing and light Italian foods on our menu, perfect for your lighter appetite. From our flavorful Caprese and Spinach salads to our Rosemary Chicken or veggie Delvickio pizza, you can enjoy the lighter-side of Italian food this summer.
In addition, our gluten-free options, fresh ingredients, and made-from-scratch meals will keep your body satisfied without making you feel overly full. As the weather gets warmer, you don’t need to sacrifice flavor when it comes to refreshing Italian food.
Share Plates this Summer
As warmer weather rolls into town, eating habits change. Families and friends tend to prefer longer meals, where groups can enjoy fun conversation and many delicious food options. Shareable plates of healthy and refreshing Italian food provide summer-loving groups with a little taste of everything.
Imagine enjoying a few bites of Pinocchio’s many refreshing salad options, veal marsala and chicken picatta, having a slice of our infamous Pinocchio pizza, and then a delightful bite of one of our desserts. Sounds dreamy, right?
Sharing plates mean endless options. With so many possible combinations, you can literally create an Italian summer picnic right at your table – why settle for one delicious Italian dishes when you can enjoy a few?
There are also a few other advantages to sharing plates. Sharing is great way to get picky eaters to try something new without all of the commitment. Additionally, shareable plates are perfect for family dinners, casual after-work gatherings, or even celebrations.
As the days get longer and the sun shines bright, remember that our fresh Italian food can be enjoyed in the warm weather! We hope to see you soon!
