Walnut Creek

The Italian American Club will have its third Virtual Dinner Dance on Sunday, May 17.


Once again Il Pavone will prepare delicious gourmet meals, packaged and delivered to Rossmoor for pick up. The menu will include an entrée choice of Slow Braised Veal Shank cooked with vegetables,wine and Gremolata, or Eggplant Parmigiana. Both entrées will come with Risotto Bianco with Parmigiano. The meal will include Mixed Green Salad, bread and butter, and a special dessert from Piemonte, chocolate Bunet. A full description of the menu is on our website at

Slow Braised Veal Shank – carrots, celery, onions, tomato, wine and Gremolata ( parsley, lemon, garlic).

Bunet – a Noble desert from Piemonte, rich yet surprisingly delicate, sure to impress chocolate lovers. 


The price for each dinner is $32, payable by check directly to Il Pavone at the time of pick-up. Each dinner will be individually packaged in microwavable containers. The meals will be delivered to Rossmoor and ready for pick at the Hillside parking lot starting at 5 p.m. on the day of the event.


Our previous virtual dinner dances have been a great success. Nearly 60 Rossmoor residents enjoyed the delicious meals at our last event. The delivery and pick up was well organized and went smoothly. Several individuals participated in a lively “cocktail hour” on Zoom, while a virtual disc-jockey attempted to provide background music of favorite Italian songs.


The Italian American Virtual Dinner Dance is open to all Rossmoor residents. The Cocktail Hour will begin at our usual time of 5:15 PM – or since it’s virtual–whenever you like. (Note: BYOB! –you will have to provide your own liquor and wine.)


Send your reservations via email to Donna Gonzales at DonnaMGonzales@ItalianAmericanClub.Org 925-891-4396. Specify the number of meals ($32 each), and be sure to include your phone, cell number and email address. In addition, let us know if you want to participate in the music and/or conversation and we will send you an invite and instructions by email. The deadline for reservations is Thursday May 14.


This is a great way to banish the blues, have some fun and a gourmet meal, while helping our friends at Il Pavone. Like all restaurants, they are struggling to keep employees on the payroll during this crisis. They truly appreciate our patronage and support.
