We sat upstairs in the private room of Grappino's and were surprised of how many guests had already arrived to the dinner. We were greeted with glasses of champagne and Aracini, a creamy risotto and parmigiano ball breaded and fried. The bridesmaids were late, so we got what everyone else couldn't finish. What I did get to enjoy was so amazing and I wish I could just of had more than I did!
Once seated, the waiters asked us red or white wine and kept the glasses full all night! We had a preset menu of Pollo Arrosto; a garlic half chicken with garlic mashed potatoes or Scampi alla Grigili; a shrimp pasta with sauteed spinach. I went with the Scampi, which wasn't that great. Everyone around me picked the chicken and it was so amazing. I wish I would have chosen that instead.
We finished the night with a gelato, that was a palate cleanser, but by the time the dessert came out everyone was drinking so much and having a good time taking pictures and exchanging gifts, I only took one bite and continuted on with being a wino!
