Get everyone together for a huge Italian feast and one of the greatest movies of all time. It’s time to enjoy an evening full of crime, gangsters and drama with Francis Ford Coppola’s ultimate American mafia classic, The Godfather.

Carpaccio movie night snacks for a true mafia classic

Family, friends and loved ones won't help but be pulled in by the first installment of this 1974 crime saga, The Godfather. The only thing you're in danger of when putting on this movie is getting hooked and watching the entire trilogy in one sitting.

To get in the mood for this intense Sicilian family drama, you could go full italian with white tablecloths, olive oil, fresh bread, lasagne, spaghetti and meatballs, anitpasto, salad and cannoli. But that could get a bit messy in front of the TV (and on the white tablecloth), so we've created this Beef Carpaccio with Castello® Aged Havarti snack that's quick, easy and delicious. This simple movie snack sets the mood, ensuring your guests dive deep into the world of The Godfather - without you needing to wash too many dishes afterwards.

While you're snacking away on Italian delights, make sure to keep your guests entertained throughout the evening - especially if you end up watching all three Godfather movies. There are many epic quotes and scenes throughout The Godfather, so a movie quiz is a must. From naming all of the members of the Corleone family, to guessing who said which famous quotes or fun trivia - you'l be entertained way beyond this double-length film.

"Leave the gun, take the cannoli" and get comfy with your guests. Pop open a bottle of wine and gesture freely throughout the film. And with the snacks you've prepared, it's an offer they certainly won't be able to refuse.
