Don't worry if you don't have a nonna of your own because Ronnie's in the CBD will be hosting a dinner run by a bunch of nonnas for this year's Melbourne Food & Wine Festival.

On Wednesday, March 20, Ronnie's crew will host a few two-hour seatings (with only the 6pm and 7.30pm slots available at the time of publishing), during which diners can experience the love and warmth that only a nonna's hospitality can provide. Wholesome alert!

The Italian matriarchs hail from The Furlan Club, one of Melbourne's oldest Italian social clubs, and will share a heap of their generations-old dishes on the night as they take over the restaurant's kitchen. This will include a few different kinds of pasta and some of Ronnie's own focaccia and salads.

A welcome drink will be included in the $94 ticket price and the bar will be open for all your additional beverage needs. Live music will also be on the cards to liven up this old-school Italian party in the city.
