October 23, 2012 (San Carlos) – Italian and food lovers across America’s Finest City are about to celebrate one of San Diego’s oldest restaurants next month: Nicolosi’s Italian Restaurant announced its plans for its 60th anniversary party today. The weeklong celebration will begin on Saturday, Nov. 10 with an Italian street fair from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. followed by a special four-course dinner. In addition, Nicolosi’s will feature a special menu showcasing its 1952 inspired dishes until Sunday, Nov.18.
“Sixty years of being in business is a landmark to celebrate,” said Ron Burner, owner of Nicolosi’s Italian Restaurant. “We want to thank the San Diego community for its loyal support during the past 60 years and making Nicolosi’s what it is today.”
The Italian street fair event, taking place in Nicolosi’s spacious parking lot, will include vendor booths, sidewalk-painting artists, food samplings, a wine and beer garden, and a kid zone with face paintings and a bounce house.
“Our event is for generations of our customers,” added Burner. “A restaurant this old doesn’t continue to exist without solid support from the community.”
Nicolosi’s was originally opened in 1952 in Mission Hills. Since then, Nicolosi's expanded and moved to a few different locations within San Diego. In November 2010, Nicolosi’s moved to its current address at 7005 Navajo Road in San Carlos. The restaurant continues to be family owned and operated.
