LAS VEGAS — Grimaldi's Pizzeria has launched an offer many won't refuse. During September, diners ordering any large pizza and a bottle of Vendetta from the Francis Ford Coppola Winery will receive a free cannoli.
A nod to this scene from Coppola's 1972 classic The Godfather, Vendetta is a described as a "full-bodied blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec featuring spicy notes of pepper and toasted wood, boasting juicy fruit, velvety mouth feel and supple tannins."
The "Take The Cannoli," promotion is priced the same at all five Las Vegas Grimaldi's locations, including the Strip's Shoppes at the Palazzo and Fashion Show mall.
The pizzeria is also contributing to Hunger Awareness Month, working in conjunction with the No Kid Hungry organization. Guests who donate $5 to the charity during September will receive $5 back to use on their next visit to Grimaldi’s. 100% of the raised proceeds will be donated. During the first week, over $140,000 was raised. [EaterWire]
