    Chef Lauren and her team were incredible! They planned my daughter's engagement party from the beginning to picking up the rentals at the end. We heard wonderful compliments about the food, the friendliness of the staff and willingness to help out me so that I could enjoy the party. I would never have need able to do this without them and will definitely use them again.

    Chef Lauren and the team turned up on time and got to work. They prepped the food and worked tirelessly to ensure our friends had a good time at our party, They kept the food coming and the variety and quality received many comments from our guests, A number of people asked for business cards at the end so we can only conclude they have the team high marks. We would certainly use again and recommend their services.

    We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday yesterday. Chef Lauren of Bacco Catered Events was, from our first contact, very professional, courteous, and had an immediate response to any questions or doubts. She was very flexible and very helpful during the planning, finding solution to any problems. We planned this cocktail party for 50 people in 1 month. The execution was amazing. The food was beautiful, delicious and plentiful. The staff was poised, worked non-stop and very attentive. I heard positive comments throughout the party from my guests, and several asked me where I found this amazing caterer and staff. We had a great party thanks to Chef Lauren and her great staff I recommend her with no hesitation.

    Under Lauren's expert direction and her team's (Liz, Helen and Bob) execution we had a fantastic 70th Birthday party. Not only was Chef Lauren's food extraordinary but the setup ( arrangement of furniture, bar and buffet table ) was exquisite. Each and every guest was bowled over by the tasty food ( including passed hors d'oeuvres, entrees, side dishes and passed desserts) as well as the warm and friendly staff. If your goal is to have a memorable event, you should choose Bacco Catered Events.

    This was our second time collaborating with Bacco for a catered birthday party for 55 people. Because our first experience was so extraordinary, we were immediately at ease this time, knowing that everything would be taken care of and our guests would be happy. Chef Lauren excels in every aspect of catering. Her food is delicious with subtle flavors and creative menu choices. Our guests raved about her mushroom and gruyere bread pudding hors d'oeuvres, as well as a Moroccan-spiced salmon over lentils. There were plenty of leftovers too. Chef Lauren is excellent at helping plan the perfect party. She makes smart suggestions, ones that add quality without needlessly running up the bill. Her servers are very professional and friendly. Her supplier for party rentals (eg, glasses, tables, etc.) was also outstanding. Our kitchen was spotless when she left. Chef Lauren communicates clearly and frequently from Day 1 through the final clean up. She handles everything effortlessly and joyfully, allowing *us* to enjoy the party (and, just as importantly, the weeks leading up to the party). We cannot recommend her highly enough. We look forward to having her and her crew as part of many events for years to come.

    Chef Lauren and her crew were such a pleasure to work with! I specifically chose Bacco Catered Events because of the prompt response level and highly personalized attention to detail from the very beginning. Our holiday cocktail party is the highlight of our year. However, Chef Lauren and her staff made it even more festive and decadent than we could have ever dreamed of! Not only was each member of the Bacco staff incredibly professional, but they each made our guests feel completely taken care of for the entire night. The food was not only delicious, but the presentation of both the pass around hors d'oeuvres and the stationary food was so beautiful. Additionally, the bartender created yet an additional focal point in the bar that many guests commented on how beautiful it was! I feel SO lucky to have found Chef Lauren! We have already set our date for December of 2017!

    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.

    Lauren and her team at Bacco catered a seated dinner for 14 people in my Manhattan apartment. By the end of the night, multiple guests asked for her information so they could work with her in the future. Their satisfaction, of course, was with her food (outrageous! inventive! gorgeously plated!) and her service (courteous! professional! attentive!). What they didn't get to see, and what I feel lucky to have experienced, is what a joy it was to work with Lauren in the planning and organization of the event. We worked together to fine tune a menu that was seasonal, colorful, delicious, and took into account certain food restrictions (no nuts; kosher). Her wine suggestions, her rental company--everything was perfect. The execution of the event was seamless. For what it's worth, my husband hasn't eaten salmon in years, and he ate every bite of Lauren's broccolini stuffed Moroccan spiced salmon. Before she left my home, I told her that I am looking for any excuse to host another party just so she can cater it! I am thrilled with my experience with Lauren and recommend her in the highest esteem.

    i was planning a surprise 35th birthday for my wife. I received several responses to my inquiry, but Bacco Catering easily stood out among them. Their menu and proposal were extremely detailed and clear. Most importantly, Lauren took the time to walk me through the options and we selected a menu that was perfect for my needs and budget. Even though she received no additional payment, Lauren coordinated the rental equipment I needed, and secured the perfect amount of staff for my party. Additionally, even though I purchased all the alcohol and drinks, Lauren guided me on exactly what I should get. Simply said, she made it as easy as it could be to plan and host a party. The actual event was a HUGE success. Lauren and her staff were at my house right on time, and immediately got to work. They were friendly, hard-working, which put me at ease even though I had 40+ people attending. Most importantly, the food was absolutely delicious. Almost every friend who attended the event asked for the name of the caterer, which is the best compliment I can give. From the time Bacco / Lauren contacted me through Thumbtack, to the planning and actual party, I can't say enough about how easy they made it for me. Anything I needed, she was there to assist me. I felt as if I was not planning a party on my own, but had a partner to help. If you are looking for a caterer for an event, I would absolutely recommend Bacco catering. You will not be disappointed!

    What a treat to find Chef Lauren and Bacco catering. This was our first experience with Lauren and her delightful staff but we are already coming up with excuses to hire them again. Chef Lauren worked with us to personalize the menu for my partner’s milestone birthday celebration and provided a full service dinner for 40 guests in our apartment with compelling warmth, confidence, and the utmost professionalism. The food was mouthwatering from the first tantalizing passed hors d'oeuvres all the way to the desserts which, by the way, included triple chocolate brownies with raspberries on the side. Everything was perfectly flavored; clearly prepared with great care and the finest ingredients; and presented beautifully. We are over the moon and our guests haven’t stopped talking about the flavorful food and wonderful service. On top of that, our kitchen was left sparkling clean and there was an awesome stash of irresistible leftovers waiting for us in the fridge to help keep the memory of an already unforgettable and delicious evening alive for just a little while longer. Professional, on time, everything was as promised and beyond.

    Lauren Collura catered a party for 60 people in my apartment in New York City. The event was composed of a service of hors d'oeuvres, beverage service, and a buffet dinner. Lauren is an accomplished professional who understands the multiple components that must be part of a successful catering business. Lauren worked with me to develop the plans for the party, was quickly and effectively responsive to my suggestions and concerns, and executed the plan regarding the food and service in an excellent fashion. She visited my home well before the event to assess the space and determine the set-up in my home; she arranged for the rental of all food service items, tables and chairs; and she constructed an arrangement that worked seamlessly in my home.

    I found Bacco Caterers on Thumbtack. I was impressed with the five stars and the reviews, so I contacted Chef Lauren to begin to see if she was the caterer for us—and was she ever! Joyce and I wanted to include our friends and family in our marriage anniversary celebration in our Brooklyn home. We are novice Open House hosts and Lauren advised us re details we would never have thought of, including in our menu selections. Her staff, chef Amanda and sous chef Laura, created freshly made hors d’hoeuvres in our kitchen as the party occurred, superb finger food that was varied, interesting, and delicious! People, including us, loved it. The servers Karen, Tony, and Kevin, and bartender Elroy were unobtrusively attentive and friendly to our guests. Our party took place on two floors and the yard, and the staff kept the food appearing and the empty glasses disappearing with seeming effortlessness. Many guests commented on how comfortable they made everyone feel, contributing to the general sense of joyousness. In spite of our request for no gifts, or perhaps because of it, many of our 50 guests brought flowers. As soon as I was handed the bouquets, Tony would appear and would arrange them in vases I had directed him to when flowers first arrived. I was free during the whole party to visit with my friends and family. I, who am not a party-person, enjoyed myself fully during this celebration, and I am grateful to Chef Lauren and her staff for the many ways (including a fantastic clean-up) they helped make that possible.

    Lauren just did my daughters' B'at Mitzvah yesterday in our home and backyard for 40 people. She specializes in "at home" events and we really wanted an intimate, beautiful, elegant garden celebration. She and her staff surpassed all our expectations. They were organized, professional and relaxed (which is a big deal). She suggested a table with coffee and pastries as people arrived before the ceremony. An hour later, she came out with flutes of champagne and passed hors d'oeuvres as soon as the ceremony was over, and then a beautiful buffet luncheon and fabulous desserts were served. Everyone raved about the service, the lay-out and display and, of course, the FOOD was divine! Everything was fresh with gourmet combinations of Mediterranean flavors (as per our choice) and done to absolute perfection. Not a single "t" went uncrossed or "i" went undotted! She set me up with a phenomenal florist and a wonderful tent company too. Many of my guests asked if they could have her contact info for their own use in the future. Everyone was blown away. I would use her again in a heartbeat and am even trying to find a reason to do so soon! She is a real treasure!

    It was an absolute joy to work with Lauren. She was extremely accommodating to our vision and event restrictions. Not to mention the impeccable design of the catering presentation! I will certainly be seeking Bacco out for events in the future!

    I love Bacco! I called Lauren shortly before my son's communion to inquire about catering lunch for 40. Lauren's suggested menu was perfect and didn't even compare in quality to the other samples I received. The day of the event the food was delivered and set up while we were at church. My guests and I were blown away when we got home to see the food displayed beautifully and it tasted just as great. Perfect luncheon. I can't wait to use Lauren and Bacco again. Everything was just as promised and more!

    This is not catering food, this is delicious, flavorful and amazing Italian upscale restaurant food! Everyone at my wedding said the food was amazing first and foremost! Everything that was served had its own amazing flavor. The service was perfect! ***** Would recommend to anyone. Thanks Lauren! It was exactly what I wanted!

    I was looking for a caterer for my birthday party, a cocktail party with passed hors d'oeuvres for 35 people in my NYC apartment. I found Lauren (Bacco Catering) here on thumbtack, and decided to give her a call. I liked her immediately, and hiring her company turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made! Lauren was extremely professional and responsive throughout the entire process. She described her services accurately and was very patient and flexible while we decided on the menu and everything else. She was the only one of 4 caterers I spoke to who was willing to do a site visit prior to the party, which was very important to me. Her company is very service oriented, and it's obvious that she treats all of her clients VERY well whether its a big or small function. She delivered exactly what she promised, and my party was outstanding! Her food was delicious and beautifully presented. She put together an outstanding team for my party--they were EXTREMELY attentive to all of my guests, who are still talking about them! No one had an empty glass for long, and they were so polite and professional and operated seamlessly and efficiently, in a small space too. They cleaned up very well and left my apartment in excellent condition. Lauren and Bacco catering exceeded my expectations in every way. She is a true professional, and I would definitely hire Lauren/Bacco Catering again for future parties. I recommend them HIGHLY to anyone looking for a caterer!

    The food and service from Bacco was superb in every way. Lauren and her staff catered a cocktail party in my apartment, and they were beyond professional and friendly. The food was delicious and I've never had so many compliments. Highly, highly recommend!

    Lauren and her team were terrific on every front. In planning, she was responsive, flexible, and worked with our evolving needs. On the day of the event, the team was punctual and very professional. The food was terrific - interesting, healthy, tasty and well-presented. The service was excellent. Lauren not only did all the preparation in the kitchen on her own, she also managed the serving staff extremely well throughout the event. Our guests were all pleased and impressed. Not only will we use her again, some of our guests might also. Thank you, Lauren!
