Biscotti! Gelato! Calamari! Calzones! All that and more awaits you at the Feast of San Gennaro L.A., the City of Angels' annual celebration of all things Italian-American. And it's not just about the food (though liking Italian food helps): the Precious cheese stage features live music every day by the likes of Ernie Barbieri, Jimmy Reno, Tre Bella, Anthony Ciaramitaro & the Sicilian Band, and Nick D'Egidio & the Dry Martini Orchestra; genealogy and cultural booths; mass and a saint procession; boccie (Italian bowling); and, of course, Bada Bingo!
