The day couldn’t be more perfect. She was soooo surprised and everyone is still talking about your food. I gave out your name to a few people. We are still enjoying the food. Thank you so much for helping me out that day. You are amazing and so was the food. And thank you for making my mom's day as well!

Buon Appetito Catering did an excellent job catering my daughter’s first birthday. My guest list consisted of 80 adults and 20 kids. They were able to assist me with creating a menu that suited my guests and the flow of the party in addition to making delicious food. Everything arrived on time and as promised. We will be using Buon Appetito in the future for our parties and look forward to another great party.

As an ongoing customer of Buon Appetito Catering, from it's inception, I have to say thatCarmelina's food deserves a five-star rating. The food is always fresh, tasty, and plentiful. I especially love her Chicken Juliana! My group has used Carmelina's catering service many times over the past 2 years, and expect to continue using her services in the future. We have never been disappointed by our choices and receive many compliments on the food. We wish you continued prosperity with your business.

Buon Appetito catered my daughters 1st birthday party. Because of the size of my family we had over 100 guests and it was not a problem for them at all. The setup was down on time and the food was amazing. I recommend the chicken carmelina to everyone and the stuffed shells and penne ala vodka was as good as anyone in my Italian family has ever made. Thanks again for the great food and service!

Buon Appetito catered my daughter's 50th birthday party and I had over fifty guests. The food arrived at the time I requested and I served it and it was piping hot. Everyone enjoyed the meal and they requested the name of the caterer. The only complaint that I had was that I had no left overs for me for the next day.

Buon Appetito catered a baby shower for me and what a wonderful job was done by Carmelina and her staff. Everything was delicious and served beautifully. The Eggplant Rollatini was to die for. To sum up in a few short words, Buon Appetito provides a vast array of very tasty hot and cold foods along with professional and dependable service.

Carmelina, I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful job you did on my sons communion. I especially loved the stuffed shrimp and eggplant rollatini. The hero shaped as a cross was also a big hit!! Everyone loved the food and we will be using you again at our next family party. Thanks again.

Coming from an Italian family, where every woman over the age of 50 knew how to cook before they could even walk, they were a little skeptical about my hiring a caterer for my wife's baby shower, instead of cooking themselves. But all I had to tell them was that the girl doing the cooking was Italian too and their fears soon went away. LOL

But on a serious note, the food was phenomenal and not a word was spoken during the food service as everyone was too busy eating. I received a lot of nods of approval from the "seasoned" cooks in my family as they all had nothing but praise for everything they ate. My wife and I definitely made sure we had some food left over to take for lunch the next day (or two....LOL). I must also thank you for giving me your honest opinion of the variety and quantity of food for the amount of people I had, to make sure I didn't over order and covered all of my bases at the same time.

It was my pleasure to keep my business within the "NBHS class of 97" family and even more of a pleasure to enjoy such great food on the day when my family came together to celebrate our little new addition to the world. I gave your number to at least 4 people and will be calling you for all future occasions.

I know what I am about to say will sound familiar because I already told you in person, but I thought the party was a hit largely because of the great work you and your crew did. The owner was very satisfied, so were the guests, and my wife and I as well. It was a pleasure to work with you preparing for the event and we’d love to have you back again next year.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the great food & excellent service on black friday! All of the employees raved about your sandwiches and were delightfully impressed by the variety & quality. My boss John was very pleased with the service too!!!

I believe my friend called & booked with you the other day. She seemed very happy! Thanks for taking care of her!!

Karen Hinkelman

Buon Appetito Catering catered my son's first birthday party. Carmelina was wonderful from start to finish and helped make an already very special day extra nice and stress free. All of the food was absolutely delicious and my family and friends all shared with me their own enjoyment of the variety and taste. I would like to thank Buon Appetito Catering for making my son's first birthday even more memorable for my family and friends! I recommend them without hesitation.

Joanna Schroeder

Everything was awesome!! The Eggplant Parm was the best! Everyone couldn't stop complimenting how good the food was and asking where it was from. I was all excited for leftovers and when we went to clean up realized there was hardly anything left! Thank you for making our sweaty pies 1 year birthday a success!!

Christine Nolan

Food was awesome!!!! Everyone loved it!! Thank you so much!!!! Everything was perfect!!

So I didn’t get to try the food at Mary’s party because I stuffed myself earlier in the day. However, after I helped you carry the stuff to the car, I helped Mary’s mom carry her stuff to the car as well. As a reward, I got a container of penne, a container of sausage and peppers and a container of eggplant rolotini. I am so very glad that I recommended you to family and friends because that food was absolutely off the charts good. I ate it when I got home after the party and it was SUPER delicious. I remember you making me penne at the restaurant years ago, but is it possible that it got even better?? You are amazing……seriously.

Dennis Hansen

"Out of this world! Every single thing was ablsoluetly amazing. We couldn't even finish it all! The crabmeat stuffing in the shrimp was soooo tasty!! The clams were outrageous! The vodka sauce was sooo tasty and Chicken Carmelina is SICK! I have a new found love for artichokes in my favorite sauce.

You're an amazing cook! Thank you so much! We had the opportunity to enjoy your amazing meal again tonight from all the leftovers! We are so appreciative and wish you all the luck in the world with your new business !!! I will be sure to pass out all your menus and business cards and spread the word on how delicious the dishes are!"

"Thank You for catering our engagement party!! Everyone was raving about your food. Karen's mom who is Italian said that your food was the best food she has ever eaten! If anyone is ever looking for a caterer, I would highly recommend Buon Appetito. Food is AMAZING!

Evan Fabrizio

"OMG!!! all I have to say is DELICIOUS!!!!! Your food is soooo good!!! I wish i had some of your menus!!! I told them to go to your Facebook Page and look up your menu! Thank you for your yummmmmy dinner!!!! You can't beat having a home cooked quality meal and not having to make it yourself!!! Love it!!!"

Gina Traina

"Well the reviews are in from Christmas Eve, everyone LOVED the food. Freakin delicious! Double bonus for me since I brought home leftovers and have had BUON APPETITO for lunch AND dinner today. To the community, if you need food for a party you have come to the right place."

Matt Butler

"I couldn't wait to tell you that everyone LOVED your food!!! Everyone asked where it was from and who made it. My brother in law's stepmom asked for your card! The chicken from the chicken parm was so tender, the eggplant was delicious (everyone knew it was awesome but couldn't put their finger on it, the HAM with it MADE the dish) and the sauce UNBELIEVABLE (my brother said it was reminiscent of our Grandmother's)!!! Thank you again for all your hard work (and for taking our order last minute), especially on Christmas!!! I will be sure to pass along your number (the proof is in the food)!!!"

Mary Cutillo

“Just wanted to let you know the food was AWESOME! Everyone was raving over it & fought over the last piece of chicken. I have no leftovers. BOOO!! Thanks again. You'll definately get orders from us in the future!”
