I had been corresponding with Antoinetta (daughter of Mamma and Papa) at the restaurant for over 18 months in planning our wedding reception and what a fabulous choice we made.
We first visited the restaurant one lunchtime a few days before our wedding on 3rd July to simply drop off some table decorations/favours etc. This visit should have taken half an hour but took us 2.5 hours due to the most amazing hospitality of Pepe (son of Mamma and Papa) who wouldn't let us leave without sampling the kitchens delights antipasti, pasta, dessert, limoncello and lot of wine and beer!! The generosity and kindness of this family is very genuine, Pepe simply wanted us to have an excellent experience at 'his house.' The food was plentiful, fresh and proper Italian home cooking - just what we wanted for our wedding. We left hardly being able to move - we're greedy!
The day of our wedding reception - 3rd July. We were collected (us and 17 other guests) by the transfer. My husband and myself had requested the vintage Fiat 500 which the restaurant had polished and had some flowers and bow added which was a lovely touch. The lovely guy (I think he was a cousin of the family) whizzed us around some picturesque spots with our photographer for photos - he went the extra mile to make our day special and we had such fun in the car. When we arrived at the restaurant our guests were enjoying aperitif wine and olives/ham etc. The were all wowed by the location etc. The staff had dressed our table just how we had asked and it looked fantastic.
The night was amazing we watched the sun set as we ate and drank the fantastic food that was provided. The family even as a surprise had another female cousin come and sing for us ... a fantastic touch which we will always remember. This location is stunning, the food superb and the hospitality excellent. We really wanted to get back again before we left for another meal however we ran out of time.
Without a doubt we will return if not just to experience the wonderful food but to see again the wonderful family who made our wedding day so special.... thank you Pepe, Antoinetta, Mamma, Papa and all the cousins, aunts, uncles etc who made our day special.
