If you do not have to allow selection of the item options in the basket
or checkout, you can just display what has been chosen like this:
[table-organize cols=2 table=' ' font="size=1" pretty=1]
[item-options td=1 label=1 bold=1 type=value]
That will cut down on space, but only displays what they have chosen.
If you need to keep the option available for change in the basket and/or
checkout, you can apply some formating like this:
[table-organize cols=2 table='style="font-size:15px; color: blue;"'
[item-options td=1 label=1 bold=1 extra='style="font-size: 8px;
color: red;"' price=1 blank_label="--select--"]
This allows you to get things to the size you want, you can also apply
the "style" settings to first example above for more control. Pay
attention to the quoting.
You are still limited by what you have in your option, you may consider
having them re-phrase their options a little to cut down on length. The
description of the product should carry the load, and options should be
along for the ride.... (-:
