“As I reflected on the past 15 years, my heart is filled with gratitude for the way in which our community received The Taste of Little Italy,” said Jerry Somma, the festival’s founder and producer. “Knowing all the hardships that we all experienced through COVID, I felt it was important to show how thankful we are, that we are here for you, and we are one community together.”
