Lucky Gnocchi Day at Piola
Sunday, August 29, 2021 | 11:00 am to 9:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 11:00 am on day 29 of the month, repeating until Saturday, January 29, 2022
Piola in Midtown and Memorial hosts a monthly all-you-can-eat gnocchi special, served in a variety of sauces, on the 29th day of each month (and on March 1).
It’s inspired by stories about the lucky gnocchi tradition. The most famous one tells the story of San Pantaleon, a missionary, arriving in a small village in Italy on the 29th of an unknown month. He knocked at the door of a very poor house.
An elderly peasant couple let him in and offered him the only thing they had on the table: Gnocchi. Soon after, the missionary left and the peasants found some gold coins under their gnocchi plates. In the meantime, San Pantaleon assembled all the villagers and directed them to gather together each 29th of the month in order to have luck and prosperity in their lives.
All-you-can-eat gnocchi is $15.95 per person. Learn more.
