People who visited Italy, whether it be mountains, sea or lakes they cannot deny that one major point of interest, next to the historic and artistic heritage is Italian cuisine. The Italian peninsula flourishes of professional chefs who share their knowledge with those who wish to experience a new emotion, a new taste, those who wish to learn how the art of great cuisine may enhance a moment in life. Lago di Como is no exception. We can’t write a brief paragraph on the typical local dishes even if we tried because we would need a chapter. From fish to meat, from vegetables to desserts, it would be so difficult to express the different possibilities and goodness. It is impossible for anyone not to be captivated by the intense, dark green of the extra virgin olive oil or the profound red reflections of Italian red wine, whose smell captures us before our plates feel complete satisfaction from the full-bodied taste. These two and many other aspects of the Italian cuisine give you a breathtaking experience that is all part of being in Italy.
All this culinary art is to be found in the catering services of high standard, that are an integral and important part of wedding events in the villas on the lake of Como. The pleasure of the sight meets what the flavors have to tell; food prepared by professionals who bring a new edge to what Italian tradition has excelled for centuries. The atmosphere is enhanced by the very highest standards of food culture for which the Lake Como region is famous, never lacking in anyway.

Time passes and traditions change. In past centuries around Lake Como, marriages as well as the ceremony were not choices but contracts. Until the early 10th century, the couple was allowed little freedom to spend time together before the wedding. Young girls were expected to behave modestly and their virtue had to be flawless if they wanted a good marriage. Mothers and grandmothers dictated proper behavior and expected complete obedience from the girls – even the showing of an arm was considered “risqué”.
Almost all weddings took place between the young of the same village because contact with other towns was limited. In today’s world, these old-fashioned customs seem silly to us. Many couples from various countries came to say “Si” in front of the marvelous lake where they are welcomed with open arms. If a hundred years ago, marrying a girl from the next town was a big deal, today different couples from all over the world celebrate their wedding on the shores of Lake Como. The atmosphere is timeless, in tune with the gentle lapping of the waves against the shore.
