    I voted for the chicken cacciatore, top sirloin, broiled salmon, spaghetti, and lasagna. Those are tried-and-true dishes and Italian standards, and there’s something in there to please almost everyone.

    These all sound great to me!  But I voted for one chicken and the rest pasta, probably not the best combo though ๐Ÿ™‚

    I voted for Chicken Parm, Broiled Salmon, Top Sirloin, and Spinach Tortellini but seafood and pasta and Italian in general tend to be my favorites. I could go for spinach tortellini right now. Have you tasted your caterer’s cacciatore? It usually has peppers in it, too, and I have known it to have a little kick depending on who makes it — it may not be the broadest crowd pleaser. I think Chicken Parm is a “safer” choice, which is also why I picked the Sirloin. The salmon and tortellini I picked because they’d be my two favorites from the menu, and as the bride, I would deserve to pick my favorites as long as there are other crowd pleaser items, I think.

    @Amaryllis: Good point about the potential for chicken with a kick on the cacciatore route, but I was thinking that it wouldn’t have a red sauce like chicken parm. And if two or three other items on the menu had a red sauce (like the pastas), then it might be nice to have the chicken dish without a red sauce. I tend to overthink menu selections, though! ๐Ÿ™‚

     

    @Statutory Grape: I think 10 oz. is a completely appropriate size. Will the entrees come with a starter salad and/or bread? Plus, you’ll have wedding cake, so that should be plenty!

    Spaghetti, calzone, lasagna, ravioli. It covers all your bases from vegetarians to meat eaters. At an Italian restaurant, I would not order a steak or seafoood and many people have moral issues with veal.

    The antipasto is usually considered appetizer.

    Spinach tortellini should definitely be your vegetarian option. However, as a vegetarian, I have to say that if it’s a really good Italian restaurant, I’d be sorely tempted by the calzones too – they can be mouthwatering.
