What began as a weekly spaghetti night at Sapolil Cellars has turned into a full-fledged menu and the resurfacing of a local Italian restaurant with a new name and location.
The restaurant formerly known as Caravaggio has been rechristened "Eat @ Sapolil" and offers dishes Wednesday through Saturday at Sapolil Cellars, 15 E. Main St.
Though Caravaggio owner Carissa Bossini closed her restaurant at the Walla Walla Regional Airport in March, it didn't take long before she was approached by the Schwerin family from Sapolil about starting a spaghetti and meatballs night at the tasting room on Wednesdays.
The weekly dinner became such a success, they decided to add appetizers on Fridays. When that became popular, the expansion included a barbecue brisket night on Thursdays along with a full menu on Friday and Saturday nights. Wednesday's spaghetti dinner runs 5-8 p.m. and includes salad and garlic bread. Kids are welcome. Thursday's, at the same time, includes a full menu and dinner specials. Dinner service begins Fridays and Saturdays at 5 p.m. Music is a regular feature, starting at 6 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays. Live piano is 4-7 p.m. Friday; and music begins Saturday at 8 p.m.
A special dinner being prepared at Stone Creek Manor, 756 Bryant Ave., is billed as the return of the elegance of fine dining.
Unfortunately, an item in last week's Strictly Business column gave an incorrect price.
The true cost of the four-course meal prepared by chef Gene Soto for the Nov. 20 event is $135 per person.
Courses served at the 1926 bed-and-breakfast will be paired with wines from Garrison Creek Cellars. Dinner begins at 7 p.m. For reservations, call 593-4770.
