Italian Dinner Party
All menus are highly personalized, with a complete sequence of courses, and pay careful attention to seasonal appropriateness in the fullest Italian traditions. Menus can also focus on a specific region of Italy if needed.
The dinner can be organized in a sit-down context or more informal buffet-style. All food is prepared in your home to ensure an authentic and freshly prepared Italian experience. A full clean up is included. This is a far more intimate, exciting and cost-effective way of throwing a dinner party than having on at a restaurant with many overhead costs.
Menus come in a range of budgets, the average of around $90 per person, but can range from $80-180.
