Abbondanza Celebrates the Harvest at La Tavola Trattoria

Abbondanza goes straight to Italy's heartland and brings its rich spectrum of ingredients - fruits, vegetables, meats and cheeses - to La Tavola Trattoria in Virginia Highland. Executive Chef Brent Banda celebrates the abundant harvest on La Tavola's fifth-annual Abbondanza menu, which is only available Wednesday, October 3 through Saturday, October 13.

Order Abbondanza as a $35 three-course prix fixe dinner (plus tax and gratuity) to savor the full spectrum or pick and choose à la carte. A quick peek at the Abbondanza menu reveals appetizers ($8-$12) such as grilled duck sausage and beet and farro verde salad; entrées ($16-$24) that include Sangiovese-braised short ribs risotto and angolotti del plin with roasted pumpkin, Grana Padano brodetto and pumpkin seed oil; and a sweet-salty torte di mele -- a salted caramel and Grana Padano gelato for dessert ($7).
