I was actually going to just suggest family style just like alleycat1984. If that isn’t an option I would go with buffet. To me, it works much better for a meal like this than sit down.

Yep per table, I think it would work well, especially with what you are serving and its nicer then a buffet

I think family style or buffet would be great for what you’re serving.  I have been to some catered Italian lunches at work where the dishes that contain both pasta and meat, people picked out all the meat before I could get to it.  But I think if the pasta and meat are in separate containers, you can have a great Italian buffet.

Also: you guys make your own limoncello?  That is crazy awesome!

I think it will be the coolest presentation and most unique if you did family style. Otherwise, I would rather go with plated because it’s neater and cleaner than buffets.

I agree that family style would be best for that intimate, warm, Italian family feeling.  Plated would be my second vote; I wouldn’t do buffet.

I always prefer plated- easier for guests and feels more special imho. I find with family style people worry about “I don’t want to take the last carrot… I hope I’m not taking too much chicken…” that type of thing.
