George Clooney, Amal Clooney


Oh to be a fly on the wall during this family dinner!

As George Clooney and Amal Clooney continue to spend part of their summer at their private home near Lake Como, the Hollywood couple is making it a priority to enjoy time with their extended family.

Such was the case Tuesday evening when the pair invited close to 13 people for a special meal at Gatto Nero restaurant.

E! News has learned George's parents as well as Amal's mother were in attendance for the gathering that began around 7 p.m. local time.

"They were very down to earth. Clearly, they required some privacy, but they were fine about sitting in a room with other diners," a source told E! News. "The restaurant was full, but when they came in, there was much surprise and excitement."

As it turns out, some of that excitement may have been caused by the arrival of Amal's sister. Wearing a bright red dress and brown wedge heels, Tala Alamuddin made quite the impression on diners.

"Amal's sister looked absolutely stunning," our insider shared. "She stole the show."

Putting fashion aside, the entire Clooney and Alamuddin family tasted meatballs, praws with fried bacon and risotto with asparagus and egg. George and Amal would also end up sharing a tagliata steak. Sorry, did we just make you starving hungry?

Guests also opted for light wines including the special Ca' Del Bosco Saten and Cremes Gaja. 

What could have been the cherry on top to this picture-perfect evening was the sparks that lit up the sky. Yes, the night ended with a fireworks display that could be seen from the family's table.

"When the fireworks started, they all looked at them and then they made a toast," a source revealed. "They obviously had something to celebrate."

How about cheers to a perfect summer night?
