Nice start. You could explain a little more about antipasto, intermezzo, and what did you have for dessert? Fruits, nuts, cheese, Italian cookies and pastries? What is the dipping sauce (EVOO/cracked pepper), crushed dried red pepper on the table and no gravy(tomato sauce for the rest of us)?
Agreed, it needs more explanation. Nothing is better than fresh mozzarella Good start
