Primi - this is your first course, usually pasta, risotto (rice), or soup.
Secondi - the entree or your main dish, usually meat or fish, but might be a vegetarian specialty instead.
Contorni - these are your side dishes - vegetables, potatoes, and your salad.
Dolci - the best for last as this is your "sweets" or dessert.
