The Australian film director George Miller (“Mad Max” series) once said, “The trouble with eating Italian food is that five or six days later you’re hungry again.” It’s with that principal in mind that the Porsche Touring Crew is rolling six days into one with a September 24 cruise to Vallozzi’s, arguably the best Italian restaurant in the Pittsburgh region.
The eatery’s success began in 1955 in matriarch Helen Vallozzi’s home where she began making and selling gnocchi out of her basement. She later moved to a small restaurant in Latrobe, where she served the Italian staple to her guests as well. Today, the restaurant’s Greensburg home base is complemented by several other satellites in the Pittsburgh downtown area.
In addition to rewarding drivers with a network of twisty scenic routes to Greensburg, PTC travelers will be treated to a special menu of Vallozzi family traditions, including homemade pastas, Helen’s gnocchi, fresh steaks, and seafood. PTC travelers will also see a number of Italian meat and cheese tapas selections, flown in from Italy weekly, and served from the restaurant’s “Fresh Mozzarella Bar.”
All ARPCA members and their guests are welcome to join the Touring Crew for this event, and will meet at Vallozzi’s between 11 and 11:30 a.m. There is no fee, but you need to please register in advance. Just access either the ARPCA or MotorSport.reg site and click on the event. For any further information on this, or any other PTC event, contact Tom Mueller firstname.lastname@example.org), or Wayne Desbrow (email@example.com).
…And in the event you happen to feeling “too busy,” or “over-scheduled” to register for this event, please recall the Italian proverb:
“A tavola non si invecchia:”
At the table with good friends … you never become old.
