Our kitchen staff gives particular attention to preparations based on meat, that is carefully chosen from our suppliers. In the food corners and in the served traditional italian wedding menu you can find prosciutto di Norcia, capocollo dei Monti Martani, veal, angus and guinea fowl. Umbria is a region very rich in high-quality raw materials, so we decided to highlight some excellent products like saffron from Cascia, Norcia truffle, and spelt from Spello.

In fact, a couple and their guests can find vegetarian sushi in our dedicated corner that also includes the typical imbrecciata umbra, omelettes and Quiche Lorraine.

The SPAO food experience
What you can find at SPAO is further more than an Italian wedding menu: it is a real experience in which all your senses will be involved. To Taste a dish means not only to take a bite, but it also means the knowledge of where it comes from: history, flavours combined together, and anecdotes. We are in a geographic area that has a lot to tell and is well-known for its food traditions. In Italy, food is the first and probably the most important element that defines the identity of a region. We want to preserve it and add our signature to enhance each dish’s historical background and taste.
The best Italian menu for your wedding
What we give is a complete experience that guides a couple in order to choose the best suggestion that will fully represent the spirit of their wedding itself. When we invite our bride-and-groom-to-be to the wedding lunch or dinner tasting, it is not only to choose together the courses together. They will meet the chef, who will explain the concept and the reasons behind each dish. They also meet the maître, who has spent weeks before looking for the best wine and food pairing, according to the chef’s creations. The maître selects wineries and wine producers in the surroundings that guarantee a small amount of bottles each year. Lower quantity means higher quality, that is what we want to give to our couples.
In case future newlyweds cannot reach SPAO and have the wedding dinner tasting, we can also arrange an online consulting with our experts. In this way, everything is going to be decided months before the wedding itself and allows us to plan your wedding at its best. So, an Italian wedding menu at SPAO does not mean only seasonal food of the highest quality and delicious dishes. We study each bite and each wine sips to give you all the values linked to Italy: sharing, lightheartedness and delight. Welcome to SPAO, where your dreams come true.
