Host an Unforgettable Italian Dinner Party: Expert Tips from Rustico Taverna



Hosting an Italian dinner party? Allow Rustico Taverna, your neighborhood Italian eatery at 6517 Fresh Pond Road, Queens, NY, to guide you through it!


An Italian dinner party is not just about the food – it's an entire experience, a celebration of love, friendship, and above all, a shared appreciation for good food. It's about creating an atmosphere that makes your guests feel at home, and of course, serving a menu that will make them rave for days.


From choosing the right dishes and pairing them with the perfect wine, to setting the table and creating the right ambiance - here are some expert tips from Rustico Taverna:


1. Starter: An Italian dinner starts with an 'antipasto' - a combination of bite-sized treats like cheeses, cured meats, and marinated vegetables.


2. Main Course: A pasta dish is a must! Depending on your guest preferences, opt for a classic 'al pomodoro' or a creamy 'carbonara'.


3. Secondo: This is the main dish and often a meat or fish dish. 'Pollo Luna Rossa' is a popular choice at Rustico Taverna!


4. Dessert: A sweet ending is mandatory! A creamy tiramisu or cannoli are sure to delight your guests.


5. Ambiance: Italian dinners are all about family and comfort. Keep the décor warm and welcoming.


6. Wine: When in doubt, ask your local Italian restaurant or wine store for pairing suggestions!


Remember, the secret to an unforgettable Italian dinner party is love - love for food, love for your guests, and love for the art of hosting. Buon appetito!
