Italian trattoria is back in town

The Italian restaurant Trattoria Monroe is bringing forth a new and delicious-sounding menu at the Monroe Community Church Saturday, Feb. 27 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The local chefs have built a reputation for quality and presentation over the past 12 months of international cuisine dinners, managing to keep the ticket price at an affordable $10.

The menu will include escarole and bean soup, homemade Italian bread and focaccia, chicken cacciatore, soft polenta, and a variety of cheesecakes for dessert.

Reservations are advised. Call Joyce Hillman at 525-9908.
