A Menu Your Wedding Guests Won't Forget!

Wedding season is still upon us here at the Lake of the Ozarks. The weather is sunny, the birds are singing, the lake is sparkling and everything is still green. This all makes for a perfectly picturesque wedding atmosphere. After the venue, the food is one of the biggest decisions you will make for your wedding, and we're here to help! Your wedding deserves the best Italian food at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we would be thrilled to share in your special day! In honor of this celebratory time of year, here are a few foods that you will find at a traditional Italian wedding. Along with a few featured dishes off of our own menu to make your mouth water!

Antipasto (Appetizers)

In Italian, appetizers translates to Antipasto. One popular item on the appetizer list is Crostini (lightly grilled slices of unsalted bread spread with chicken pate). Another popular item is Polenta (cornmeal flower based) and a selection of meats. When you do your catering with us, we have some delicious Toasted Ravioli, golden meat-filled ravioli sprinkled with parmesan and served with a side of meat sauce. Your guests will love these!

Primo Piatto (The Pasta Portion)

The Primo Piatto is the pasta course of the meal, following the Antipasto, but before the main course. Occasionally salads will be served instead. Pasta is a versatile meal, there are many combinations of shapes and sauces to pair up together. From the Ravioli con Vurro e Salvia (ravioli with sage and butter) to Perpedelle sully Lepre (ribbon pasta with hare). A favorite pasta dish at Li'l Rizzos is the Tortellini Alfredo, a delicious mixture of bacon, peas, and mushrooms in our thick cream sauce. This delicious course will be a sure hit with your guests!

Secondo Piatto (The Main Course)

This part of the meal is the official main course, it generally consists of meat or fish and comes after the primo piatto, but before the dessert. Many Mediterranean countries cannot celebrate an event without including meat as a part of the menu. They vary between beef, veal, rabbit, hare, wild boar and lamb. Generally a meat dish will also be served with a side of seasonal vegetables, fried, cooked in the oven or just simply grilled. We have a delicious Beef Soto that will delight all of your guests!

Dolci (Dessert)

Obviously no celebration would be complete without desserts! Common desserts in Italy are icecream (Gelati), tiramisu and a fresh fruit cake (Puff pastry covered with a layer of cream and fresh fruit). On our catering menu you can get tiramisu or a delicious chocolate cake.

Vino e Liquori (Wine and Digestives)

Obviously no celebration would be complete without a good quality wine, whether red or wine. Sometimes coffee comes during this round as well. We have a beautiful selection of House Wines, White Wines and Red Wines.

Italian's know how to enjoy a good meal, and a large one at that! Their wedding feasts are truly that, a FEAST! Just because you don't live in Italy doesn't mean you have to sacrifice on the food! Our Italian Catering at the Lake of the Ozarks is the BEST! You can check out our catering menu on our website. We'd love for you to give us a call and let us help you host a delicious Italian spread with the best pasta at the Lake of the Ozarks!
