My fiance and I have just started doing taste testing for our wedding reception food, and we fell in love with an family owned italian restaurant that does catering. The food is delicious and the owner is an amazing guy. This might be a stupid question due to false perceptions, but what is everyone's thoughts on italian food for reception dining? When my sister got married several years ago, I remember her talking down to italian food and making it seem like tacky food to serve at a wedding. Is this just some misconception I have? Or is italian food something to stay away from?
