The first piece of cutlery, on the right side of the plate, should be the main dish knife. Put a teaspoon to the right of the knife. The soup spoon is larger than the teaspoon and is on the far right. Place all the forks to the left of the plate. The main dish fork is the largest and is placed to the left of the salad fork. The salad forks are on the far left.

Generally three glasses are placed: one large for red wine, one medium for water and one a little smaller for white wine. The glasses are placed upwards of the knives in order from left to right: glass of water, glass of white wine and glass of red wine. They can be placed forming a small angle, where the water cup is outward, that is, further away from the plate.
