Introduction: ONLY THUMBTACK CATERER WITH 100% FIVE STAR REVIEWS! It's all about the flavor, presentation and above all, customer service. I take the time to listen to my clients' needs and to respond accordingly. People appreciate that special touch and quick response. In addition, Bacco employs classically trained chefs that know how to work with food on a professional level, along with great creativity -not waiters who "pose" as chefs, There is a huge difference! I would have to say being a part of those special "once in a lifetime" moments. Sharing wedding days, milestone birthdays and other special occasions gives myself and my staff a lot of personal satisfaction. Just knowing you have helped to make someone's celebration memorable makes everything worthwhile.

Sometimes these reviews seem too good to be true but Lauren and her team are the absolute real deal. I cannot recommend them more highly! It was my first time having a catered cocktail party in my home and Lauren helped me with every detail, from selecting a perfectly balanced menu to making sure everything I needed was covered. Her communication was quick and concise and I can't say enough about the friendliness and professionalism of her and her team while they were in my home. My guests RAVED about the food and were talking about it days later. They and I appreciated how well-taken care of they felt from the minute they walked in the door. And at the end of the evening everything was clean and organized with nothing for me to do but relax. Thank you Lauren, so much!

Chef Lauren was an absolute pro. Incredibly responsive, making sure that no detail no matter how small was overlooked. She was precise, communicative, on top of everything at all times, and made sure that I had all the information before I made any decisions. This was my first catered event in my home and I was a little overwhelmed with it, but she managed to make it all smooth. The food was outstanding, the quantity and quality exquisite, and I would 100% recommend her and use it again on my next event.

I cannot day enough about my experience with Chef Lauren! From her communication, organization, team, presentation, to sheer quality/deliciousness of her food; All Perfection! We had very little time to organize a buffet style event serving 30 during the busiest time of year. She was incredibly on top of everything making my job a breeze. Her staff of fabulous women were very responsive and lovely. The decor and presentation worked perfectly for our upper east side location with a collection of uptown and downtown guests. Everyone was thrilled! Can’t wait till the next opportunity arises to work with Bacco!

Lauren and her colleagues catered a small (20 people) cocktail party at our home. The food was wonderful, both tasty and interesting. Lauren was amazingly responsive and helpful in planning the gathering. All of the staff were professional and helpful. Thanks to Lorraine and her people, the party went off without a hitch

We have used Bacco Catering twice now and everything has been outstanding. Starting with setting up a date through to execution. The team is very professional so that you only have to enjoy the evening and eat the delicious food. They move effortlessly into the house, and with grace take care of your guests. We have been entertaining for many years in Australia and we cannot recommend them enough, so much so that are organising our next event!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We are happy to work within budgets, but clients should always be up front about what they’d like to spend since everything is customized—food, staffing, beverage and rentals should all be considered within your target budget.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    After the potential client responds to a series of questions and expresses interest in our services, we move forward with a proposal and relative menu options. Once they examine the customized information, we follow up with a conversation to clear up any questions that may remain. At that point, once the client decides if we are the right fit, we move forward with all the rest 😊

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Grand Diplome from The French Culinary Institute, now known as International Culinary Center in Manhattan. Prior to a formal degree, established a catering company in Rome, Italy with primarily clientele from the American Embassy. Worked in numerous high end reputable restaurants in Manhattan and received rave reviews, as well as a wealth of experience in catering and food styling.
