Dinner- Italian Style
The menus that we propose are generally 8 courses and can go from simple rustic cuisine to an extremely sophisticated dinner. Although 8 courses may be more than you are accustomed to at home, this is traditional in Italy. A menu listing appetizers, first courses, main courses, side dishes and wedding cake is an eight- or nine-course meal, as each dish is served separately. In our experience, we have found that our guests are delighted with this type of menu. In fact, we continually receive letters- even years later- from couples saying that they'd love to come back for their anniversary to taste the menu that they had at their wedding again.
Guests with Special Dietary Requirements
Guests with specific dietary requirements or allergies do not need to miss out on our fantastic cuisine.
Vegetartians will be offered an appropriate alternative for every non-vegetarian dish served. For those with common allergies (wheat, dairy, nuts or celiac disease, etc.) caterers are capable of preparing versions of the dishes requested, while avoiding the allergy causing ingredients, upon request.
We always organize a meeting with the selected caterer a few days before the wedding, at which time you can confirm with them the number of vegetarians or people with specific dietary requests and which alternatives you have chosen for them to eat.
A reduced menu is also available for children.
Tastings: Taste the Difference!
If you have a chance to visit us in person prior to the wedding, we would be pleased to arrange a tasting with one (or more) caterer so that you can have a better idea when making your decisions about your wedding menu. The tastings are like regular dinners in the restaurant of the caterer you have chosen; to give you a better idea of what your menu will be like at your wedding, these tastings include all 8 courses.
Our menu proposals also include the wedding cake- such as the traditional Italian wedding cake, ‘mille foglie’. Mille foglie is a cake made from layers of light filo pastry, chocolate cream, vanilla cream, and seasonal fruit. Guests will be talking for years about how good your wedding cake was!
If you prefer to have a more traditional English wedding cake, or something very similar to what you have back at home, we can also arrange for this, as well. Our trusted confectioner is specialized in working with sugar paste, and can create the wedding cake you have in mind from pictures you send her. In case you also happen to have a birthday celebration during the festivities, very special birthday cakes can also be created, upon request.
