Natale Demarco and John Curciullo were this year’s winners of the 11th “Taste of the North End” Bocce Tournament. The tournament featured high level bocce play and an Italian-style barbeque on Sunday, September 21st at Langone Park. The annual bocce event is organized by Donato Frattaroli of Lucia Ristorante and Chris Zizza of C&R Flooring. The weather was perfect for the traditional Italian game while raising money for North End causes.
