Hi, foodie friends. Sharing a press release from the inbox this morning. Sounds like they have a wonderful line-up!

(Rosemont, IL)- Whether you're kicking off your workweek or winding down your weekend with family, Rosemont's Cibo Racconto has a delectable dining deal for you.

The casual Italian eatery, which is the restaurant extension of the Racconto Italian food import company, serves up weekly specials starting with $4 pasta marinara dishes, available all day on Mondays. Choose from fresh fettuccine, shell-shaped lumache, and Rigatoni cut pasta (reg. $6.99-$7.99), all draped in bursting-with-flavor San Marzano tomato sauce.

Return to Cibo Racconto every Tuesday for $5 bottles of imported Italian red or white wine; choices include bottles from Ciccariello Pinot Grigio, Mezzo Chardonnay, Ciccariello Merlot, and Mezzo Cabernet. Pair your pasta, pizza, or the restaurant's signature panizza- a pizza-panini hybrid stuffed with your choice of cheeses, meats, and vegetables- with a delicious Italian wine at an absolutely unbeatable price.

Wednesdays bring a dinner deal for two, perfect for a girls' get-together or a welcome midweek date night. For just $20 (excludes tax) after 4:00 p.m., two people can each enjoy a pasta or entrée along with a bottle of the Ciccariello Pinot Grigio, Mezzo Chardonnay, Ciccariello Merlot, or Mezzo Cabernet.

These fresh and flavorful products serve as the star ingredients in Cibo Racconto's full menu of Italian dishes.
