Every day is a great day to celebrate the mother figures in your life! We’ve got you covered this May with housemade pastries, a four-course meal for four, a special virtual class, and more. Read on for the best Mother’s Day gift ideas for every mamma you know.
FOR THE MOMS WITH A SWEET TOOTH…
Bring the mothers in your life a sweet moment with housemade dolci like tiramisù, pasticcini, and freshly filled cannoli. Our pastry chefs have put extra care into each sweet treat. Pick up her favourite in-store at our pastry counter by Caffè Vergnano.
FOR THE MOMS WITH AN INNER PASTRY CHEF…
For the moms who love to create new sweet treats, give her the gift of a Virtual Tiramisù Class (and get a spot for yourself so that you can join her!) complete with all of the necessary ingredients and led by our La Scuola Chef.
FOR THE ADVENTUROUS MOMS…
For an unexpected treat, take her on a tasting tour of the wines of Central Italy, one of Italy’s best-kept secrets when it comes to crisp, refreshing vino picks for Spring. Discover the full selection from our Vino e Birra To-Go or give her the gift of a subscription to our monthly Wine Club!
FOR THE MOMS WHO LOVE ORDER IN…
Want to make it an Italian night in with mamma? Our chefs have created a special, ready-to-eat Cena per Quattro (or “meal for four”) experience featuring your choice of two antipasti, four pasta dishes, one secondi, and one housemade dessert for $150 (plus tax, drinks not included). Pre-order your Mother’s Day meal for pick-up from La Pizza e La Pasta on May 8 or May 9 between 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by May 7 at 10 p.m., or order your meal for delivery directly through Uber Eats on Mother’s Day! No Italian meal is complete without a drink to pair, so be sure to add on a bottle of vino to enjoy with your meal, a Bellini kit or Mimosa kit for the perfect Sunday Italian lunch.
