La Vigilia di Natale e la Festa dei Sette Pesci

Posted on
Christmas is a major holiday in Italy… which means Italians celebrate lots of great, unique Christmas traditions! Across Italy, Natale tends to be a family-centric holiday, a time to stay at home (and eat!) with loved ones. But customs also vary from city to city, from exactly which dishes are served, to when to open presents, making every region an interesting place to enjoy the holidays.

The Feast of the Seven Fishes (Italian: Festa dei sette pesci), also known as The Vigil (Italian: La Vigilia), is a Southern Italian and Italian-American celebration of Christmas Eve with meals of fish and other seafood. That is why this Christmas Eve we offer a Special Meal  that includes 7 ingredients from the sea.
