These specialties are served with elegance, precision and professionalism, to offer an impeccable meal.

COFFEE OR TEA

Menú Trovatore presents a stunning 7-course tour of classic Umbrian cuisine courtesy of Da Luciano, one of central Italy’s most revered restaurants.

 

An extravagant, wide-ranging 7-course menu with something for everyone, Trovatore allows your guests to sample two of dishes from each course.

 

The menu includes 7 courses plus the wedding cake, as follows:

 

  • an aperitif served around the pool
  • 2 appetisers per person
  • 2 first courses per person
  • 2 main courses with side dishes per person
  • the wedding cake
  • coffee or tea

 

The menu also includes all costs connected to renting the tables, chairs, tablecloths, napkins, glassware etc.

 

When the menu indicates “choice of two”, it means that each guest will be served both the selected dishes, i.e. two pasta dishes, two main courses etc.

 

This is a tradition at Italian weddings and, while it might initially seem extravagant, we’ve found that this type of menu always goes down well with guests!

 

Therefore, a menu listing appetisers, first courses, main courses with side dishes and dessert is, in effect, a 7-course meal. We think it’s a suitably lavish touch on a day that’s all about extravagant celebration.

 

In fact, we’d even suggest keeping this little detail from your guests until the very last minute – in our experience it’s a surprise that tends to go down very well indeed!

 

Vegetarians will be served an alternative to every non-vegetarian dish served to the other guests, thus enjoying the same number of courses as everyone else.

COFFEE OR TEA

We go to great lengths to create a magical atmosphere every time we host a wedding reception at one of our beautiful villas.

 

We know what an important part the reception plays in most weddings and we’ve had many years to master the art of getting it just right. The following description outlines our proposed reception itinerary for any of Luciano’s menus. This includes Menu Tosca, Menu Rigoletto, Menu Traviata, Menu Trovatore or Menu Aida.

 

Set among age-old olive trees. with stunning lakeside views providing a wonderful backdrop, a welcome cocktail will be served by the pool. A string quartet will provide a pleasant musical accompaniment.

 

Pineapples, citrons and watermelons will be sculpted to create charming animals used to decorate the table for the bounteous poolside buffet.

 

Vol-au-vents, fruit skewers, prosciutto and cantaloupe, chunks of Parmigiano with green-tomato preserves, mini-pizzas, deep-fried vegetables and more will be served on antique mirrors.

 

The group will then move towards the marquee area and guests will be seated at tables.

A string quartet, or, if desired, music selected from CDs will accompany the dinner, with individual servings of appetisers, first course, second course and vegetables. Lastly, the wedding cake will be served.

 

While the bride and groom have their pictures taken, the waiters will lay out the dessert, also serving the wedding cake.

 

After dessert coffee will be served.

 

The entire reception is created to reflect traditional characteristics that are in keeping with the Italian setting. Evocative aspects of traditional Tuscan and Umbrian culture will feature throughout, including delicious local cuisine, decorations and table settings.
