Eating With Italians- First Communion Style

Growing up with an Italian father, I have come accustomed to long Italian dinners with A LOT of food! My friends on the other hand are like “What? What do you mean you’re still eating?”. Sunday was a prime example. It was my cousin’s First Communion, and after the communion we went to an Italian Restaurant called Villagio. Throughout the dinner I sent my friends snapchats of all the food and most of them were like I don’t understand, why are you eating so much? Well, with Italians, food is something to enjoy with family and friends and First Communions are a great celebration to do so. Here is my dinner through pictures. (BTW this dinner started at 1 p.m. and ended around 8 p.m.). Enjoy 🙂
