Tavola alla Toscana
  • Your Tavola alla Toscana Grand Display
    This beautifully set “Tuscan Table” will be the centerpiece of the afternoon’s events. Your guests will have an opportunity to enjoy the flavors of Italian antipasto “Trattoria” style, selecting from items typically served on the grand piazzas of Italy. Prepared in the traditional style with recipes from the ancient towns of Citta Di Castello, Assisi, Arezzo, Citterna, Perugia, Gubbio, Fiorenza, and Rome, these classic antipasti will delight both the novice and the seasoned traveler. This dramatic display will be presented at varying levels and heights with fern/fica trees and a fresh floral landscape reminiscent of the Tuscan hills in the spring time. Accenting the table will be votive candles, remindful of the fireflies seen over the freshly plowed fields on a warm summer’s night. Please make your selections from the menu below. We suggest 6-8 items for a smaller Tavola, 10-15 for a larger one.
