Host a summer dinner party - Italian style

Host a summer dinner party - Italian style

Tribe Digital

Summer certainly looks like it’s starting to arrive, so make the most of any outdoor space you may have and host an alfresco dinner party for your friends and family. If you don’t have any outdoor space, all of these tips can be used to host your very own indoor summer shindig too. 

Whether you’re looking to hold a sophisticated dinner party with family or throw more of a relaxed gathering with friends and some cocktails, we’ve got you covered because if Italians know how to do one thing well, it’s how to host a party. 

Make your guests comfortable

Firstly, you want your guests to feel comfortable. So set the scene! Make sure you’ve got enough seating and maybe some blankets in case it gets a bit chilly after the sun sets, we are in England after all. Outdoor lanterns or solar-powered fairy lights might come in handy too. 

Creating a playlist to listen to throughout the evening is also another easy win to impress your guests and make them feel comfortable. You could either use a pre-made playlist on a streaming app or even better, create your own. Think relaxing, summer vibes.

For after dinner entertainment, why not have a pack of cards to hand or even write your own quiz?

Cocktail hour

What’s a dinner party without a couple of cocktails to get the night started?

Now, of course, you could make your own, but we have made things easy for you. When you’re hosting, you don’t want to be rushed off your feet, so sit back, relax and enjoy one of our ready-to-drink cocktails

If you’re feeling super summery, you might want to opt for one of our spritz drinks. We’ve put our own twist on them so it’s a great opportunity to try something new, and share it with your guests. The spritz in Italy is the classic aperitivo to start off a great night. Our Pornstar Spritz is always a winner for anyone who enjoys a light, refreshing, fruity option. For a more sophisticated option, you could go for a classic such as a Godfather or an Old Fashioned. The choice is yours!

Keep the drinks flowing throughout the evening and keep your guests topped up with bubbly or a nice bottle of red.

Let us do the cooking for you

Blow away your guests with a quick and easy, authentic taste of Italy! 

As excited as you might be to play host again, sometimes cooking up a feast can be more trouble than it’s worth, especially if you’re pushed for time. Our pasta meal kits are a super convenient way to provide your guests with fresh, authentic, Italian pasta without doing any of the hard work. We hand make our pasta each day and deliver it fresh to you so that you can impress your guests with a delicious selection of starters, pasta, and desserts without slaving away in the kitchen for hours. 

Our Burrata Arrabbiata is always a winner around the dinner table. We source our heavenly burrata from Puglia, so you can recreate an Italian summer party from the comfort of your own home. This dish really is the ultimate choice if you’re looking to indulge!

Burrata Arrabiata - Scarpetta Pasta Kit

We also have some limited-edition options on our menu, made using seasonal ingredients such as our pancetta, peas, and zucchine bucatini, a match made in heaven. Our handmade Roman bucatini complements the dish perfectly, allowing you to serve authentic Italian dishes from the comfort of your own home. 

We would also highly recommend our Devonshire crab ravioli if you really want to impress at your dinner party with the ultimate restaurant-quality experience. The delicate yet powerful flavours of the crab taste fresh and let’s not forget how elegant it looks on the plate!
