Charlize Theron got an early jump on her birthday celebration with a dinner party with friends in Rome on Sunday night.
The Academy Award winner, who turns 38 on Aug. 7, dined al fresco on the patio of Antica Pesa with pals including the restaurant's owner, Francesco Panella, who opened the celebrity hot spot (which is normally closed on Sundays) especially for the birthday girl.
Wearing a sleeveless black dress and bright red lipstick the mom of one sipped red wine and dined on a selection of Roman staples including prosciutto and mozzarella, cacia e pepe and amatriciana pastas.
At the end of the meal, Theron and her friends switched to Champagne as the group sang "Happy Birthday" to her and ended their Italian feast with a cake topped with candles.

There's no doubt that Charlize Theron and Seth MacFarlane are friendly – but more than friends? Not so much – yet.
They've had the web buzzing with dating reports, following a dinner Monday night at Beverly Hills sushi restaurant Matsuhisa, a little more than a month after they chatted at length at MacFarlane's post-Oscar bash in February.
But a source insists that while Theron, 37, and MacFarlane, 39, certainly get along, the basis of their relationship is work-related, as the two both star in A Million Ways to Die in the West, which the Family Guy creator also wrote and will direct.

Who knew Charlize Theron could dance? Or that Channing Tatum could do so with his clothes on?
Together they wowed the Academy Awards on Sunday, performing a challenging ballroom dance in front of 40 million viewers – each counting on their background in dance to make up for a frightening lack of rehearsal time.
"They were going to cram and rehearse constantly over two days [right before the Oscars]. But then they both simultaneously got the flu," producer Neil Meron tells PEOPLE.

It's comeback time. Whether seeking revenge or reprising beloved roles, a fresh crop of movies shows that the best characters always come back for more.
Twilight's Kellan Lutz feasts on others as a vampire, but this time, he's utilizing his own body for powers, Zimbio reports.
The actor will star in Tatua as a tattooed assassin whose weapons are extracted from the ink on his body. The process is a strain on the hit man, but he must put that aside when his son is kidnapped by a dangerous foe.
Hugh Jackman is set to reprise his role as Wolverine in X-Men: Days of Future Past, the Hollywood Reporter. Ian McKellen (Magneto) and Patrick Stewart (Professor Xavier), will also be joining Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Nicholas Hoult.

Suddenly, he looked around and said, "Oh, who's that looking at me now? Is that Mila Kunis? Hi, Mila."

A Snow White and the Huntsman sequel may hit the silver screen without, well, its Snow White.
On Tuesday, the Hollywood Reporter ran an article saying that Kristen Stewart will not be invited back to star in a planned sequel to last summer's Snow White and the Huntsman. Instead, the story said, the film would focus on Chris Hemsworth's Huntsman character, and it would begin shooting this summer once the actor's schedule is free.
Soon after, though, the Los Angeles Times reported that Stewart's future in the planned Snow White sequel was not yet determined and that she could still play a role in the Hemsworth-focused film.
