This House of Savoy menu bears the House's coat-of-arms in the old version (quartered with the Saxony arms) instead of the more simple 'gueles, silver cross' that became of current use in the 19th century.
No. 767 and No. 768 also bear this style of the Savoy arms.
No. 763 was originally printed as a Dinner menu card -it has 'Diner du' embossed in gold near the coat-of-arms, but no date. It is, actually, a lunch menu, bearing 'Déjeuner du 10 janvier 1900' handwritten top below.

Interestingly enough, No. 767 is the dinner rather than lunch menu of exactly the same day; and so, the perfect match to No. 763.

January 1900 corresponds to the final phase of the kingdom of King Umberto I of Italy, who wasa killed by an anarchist on 29th July of that year. (See my remarks on menu No. 768.)
