The late Sopranos star also ordered back-to-back portions of fried prawns with mayonnaise
chilli sauce and a large portion of foie gras for his last meal with his 13-year-old son, Michael, the Mirror reported.
He also downed four shots of rum, two pina coladas and two beers.
A source at the Boscolo Exedra Roma hotel's outdoor restaurant said that nearly everything that the actor ordered was fried.
Michael found James collapsed in their hotel room, just three hours after the father-son duo had their meal on Wednesday night.
Registered nutritionist Dr Carina Norris said that the meal would have added up to around 2,730 calories and the average amount that is needed by a man is about 2,500 for the whole day.
