Personal Chef

I used the Spinelli personal chef services for my husbands 60th birthday. It is beyond my expectations. They were professional, excellent quality of food, and their service was beyond anything I could have asked for. Excited to host again to use their services.

Wedding and Event Catering

Everyone loved the food we had. We had chicken French, Roast Pork loin, Ferrel and the broccoli salad. Mark and Stephanie are great people. My daughter's big wedding got cancelled but we had a small one and decided to go ahead and do food for the rehearsal dinner with the small wedding the next day. We will be doing the whole thing again next year to give them the wedding of their dreams (just a little postponed) and will be hiring Spinelli Catering Events & Chef Services for that celebration. Thanks again!

Personal Chef

I wanted to have something special planned for my wife's birthday and had shopped around for a personal Chef, Mark and his wife were available and they did an excellent job, menu ideas were excellent and my guests enjoyed the food. They brought their own cookware etc set the table did all cleanup after (honestly as good as I would have cleaned up the place after a dinner party). Would hire again for our next gathering. Thanks again all!

Personal Chef

Mark and Stephanie were an absolute delight to work with. They were hired as a gift as an in home personal chef experience for a friend. They were friendly, charismatic and accommodating. They worked with the hostess to develop a 4 course meal for her and her guests and everyone was impressed. I can't imagine what they would do for a larger group of people! I highly recommend Spinelli and team. You won't be disappointed.

Event Catering (Drop-off)

On Saturday February 13, 2016 our Knights of Columbus Council 15118 at Sacred Heart Cathedral Rochester, NY held its 1st ever Social Dinner for members and a guest. Our Council is currently celebrating its 6 year as an organization serving the Church and Community. In all those years it has been the intent to hold a buffet style social dinner event where we could share some fellowship and friendship beyond our structured meetings. So the decision was made by our Planning Committee at our January 2016 meeting to hold this event, the date was chosen, 02/13, and wheels were put in motion. I searched catering options by cold canvassing, personal suggestions, and Thumbtack.com resulting in a field of 8 different options. Through alot of research and many contact conversations there were two catering business options brought to vote at our January Business meeting and with unanimous choice, Mark and Stephanie Spinelli of Spinelli Chef Services was chosen to cater our event. From my initial conversation with Mark and Stephanie, their professional and caring approach to accommodate the needs of this dinner by menu selection and within budget is a credit to their outstanding business reputation that was shared by all that attended this event. On behalf of all that enjoyed dinner and in sincere appreciation for all your patience and expertise with dinner planning, preparation, presentation, and cleanup, we extend our gratitude. Thank you for making our 1st Dinner Social such a success to build on, with all the services that you provided, and hope many more to come. James D. Maier Chancellor Bishop John E.
