Do you want to know the definition of Excellence? Hire Luisa c/o De Cicco's Event Planning! I have never worked with a more professional, friendly company. Luisa has a way of catering to her client's and making them feel like they're at the top of her priority list. If you need her, drop her an E-mail and she IMMEDIATELY gets back to you. Need a personal Chef to teach you how to cook? Luisa can connect you with top of the line quality professional's that KNOW what they're doing in the kitchen. I'm currently taking lesson's from her Chef and I went from being a novice who's food was either bland, burnt and completely un-edible, to a person who can now chop, dice and make a meal so good, my family calls me asking me to cook for them again. Luisa and her staff are so friendly, so welcoming and very attentive to the needs of the client. Luisa has done a fine job in picking her staff and I’m extremely happy I hired her company because it was worth every penny.

Food was delicious! Wayne was great from the beginning to the end of the planning and actual dinner. His food and service were outstanding. He pays attention to detail and delivered exactly what I requested. We had a 5 star restaurant experience right in our dining room.

As the marketing coordinator for my firm, it's my job to plan and facilitate events. I recently moved back to NYC and don't have many go-to's as far as vendors go. I asked around and several friends suggested rsvp based on their own experiences. I'm certainly glad I decided to use them for our new office launch! The entire process was flawless (the initial proposal, a few minor changes, the event itself, payment and follow-up) and the food we received for our event was delicious! Since it was a spring/rooftop event, we went with mini sliders, skewers, homemade potato chips, etc. Renee, our manager, went beyond her duties to help me set up for the event (helping move our furniture, etc) aside from the food and she was extremely friendly (even though it was 85 degrees and super humid, which could make anyone cranky!)

Chef David provided our family with a memorable Thanksgiving meal that was carefully crafted and perfectly executed. 20 guests, a mix of adults and children, enjoyed classic dishes like turkey and mashed potatoes as well as unique tastes like crab crake. Enough gushing from me... here are the 3 most important things I want future clients to know: 1) Chef David is a supreme professional - Super responsive up to the minute of delivery (and even after the meal), provided high quality product and was a general pleasure to work with. 2) Delicious down to the smallest detail - Not only were the apps, entrees and sides packed with deep flavor but the cranberry sauce and salad dressing received several compliments too. The crab cake was a standout but the entire meal was excellent. 3) Wash, Rinse, Repeat - We viewed catering Thanksgiving as a high stakes gamble. Chef David outperformed on all aspects and we plan to use his expertise again in the future.

Chef Melissa was an absolute pleasure to work with, and made our girls trip to the Hamptons incredibly special. Despite our rental house being less equipped than expected, Melissa and her lovely assistant rolled with the punches and delivered an exceptional meal with smiles and grace. Everything they created was beyond delicious, and by far the best meal we had while we were away (and we went to some great restaurants!). I would not hesitate to recommend Chef Melissa to anyone, and look forward to working with her again!

Tamara did an amazing job at our co-ed baby shower. We live in a NY apartment and so Tamara had to prepare in a NY-sized kitchen. The preparation and delivery was flawless and the food was delicious. At the end, she cleaned up within a half hour and left the kitchen spotless. Tamara makes sure you have zero stress when it comes to the food (and drinks if you choose!).

Charly cooked a three course meal for 15 people. Great. Love the soup (tomato soup with black truffle) and prosciutto salad was phenomenal and salmon with vegetables was very good.

Melissa's cooking event was incredibly informative! I learned so much about nutrition, detoxing, and food preparation. The juice and meals she prepared exceeded my expectations and were wildly delicious!

Ellen catered our Christmas Eve dinner. She did appetizers, main course and dessert. Everyone was very please with the meal. When speaking to her I was a little nervous because she seemed overwhelmed and harried. It was Christmas time and I know she was busy, but she delivered what she promised and on time. It was the first time we had ever catered a holiday meal so we were concerned about the quality. Not to worry, Ellen provided a delicious meal and we did not have the prep and clean up so really enjoyed time with our family. Thanks Ellen!

Bacco Catered Events is the best in the business. If you are thinking about hiring a chef for a catered party please stop wasting your time and just go with these outstanding professionals who are a joy to work with and make delicious food. I used them for the first time a few weeks ago (14 June) for an important business dinner and everything from planning a menu to clean up was expedient, professional and the food was - according to every guest - superb! In addition to world class cuisine - They even get the little things right (knowing the VIPs and serving them first, remembering drink preferences, monitoring supplies etc). Every single guest commented on the delicious food and excellent service. I entertain often personally and professionally and this was a stand out experience which ensures I will be a repeat guest. Chef Lauren was very accommodating about a couple of specific dietary restrictions and those folks were also delighted with the outcome - they felt they really had a meal customized for them. Chef Lauren and the servers really worked as a team for a flawless experience. I can not recommend this service highly enough.

Chef Stef is a professional Culinary Chef that teaches you step by step how to prepare different recipes. Every two weeks it's a different menu. He provides you with all the food to cook and all the utensils and dishes you need to prepare a wonderful meal. It's always a fun group and we love cooking together. His knowledge about the different products, where there from, where you can buy them and how healthy they are, is very educational. He sometimes pairs the recipes you have prepared with a tasting of different wines or beers of different regions depending on which recipe you are cooking that day. Chef Stef also provides you with containers to take whatever Recipes you have cooked home for your family and children to enjoy. I highly recommend going to Chef Stef cooking classes.

I hired Natwerks Catering to prepare and cook the food for my Christmas Eve party at my home. The food preparation was well thought out and executed to perfection. My guests went home happy and looking forward to my next event because they know I will be hiring Chef Nate and Natwerks Catering again.
