Her mother Baria visited a few weeks ago. Now, it's his parents' turn.

George Clooney and his fiancée Amal Alamuddin had dinner Wednesday with the actor's mother and father, Nick and Nina, at a restaurant in Lake Como, Italy, not far from his villa – at a place the Oscar winner actually hadn't tried before.

The restaurant, La Colombetta, is located on the site of an old church dating from the 1300s. Run by three sisters since 1990, it has five small separate dining areas that offer guests a lot of privacy.

The menu is traditional: fish prepared the Sardinian way. (The three sisters, Mariana, Silvana and Lina Peddoni, are Sardinian.)

The parental visits come as the couple are preparing a very special family occasion – their wedding – which sources have said will likely take place in Italy in September.

Clooney, 53, often spends time in Lake Como around the Fourth of July. He did so last year, and often welcomes family and friends, including famous pals such as Rande Gerber, Cindy Crawford and Matt Damon, to his Italian home.
