George Clooney was presented with a $4,800 (£3,000) feast on the night before his nuptials in Venice, Italy as a wedding present from a local restaurant owner.

The Ocean's Eleven star took six friends, including actor Matt Damon and Cindy Crawford's husband Rande Gerber, out to dinner to celebrate his final night as a single man prior to marrying Amal Alamuddin in September (14).

The star-studded group ate at Ristorante Da Ivo, and the restaurant's manager, Giovanni Fracassi, has now revealed he refused to let Clooney and his guests pay for their food.

He tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "No, he didn't pay for his night, I didn't want him to. (The tip was) not much, like you would do for a friend... You could see he was happy."
