    Fantastic service, support and food!

    We were thrilled to have Barattas Catering on our vendor team. Michelle is great to work with - a lot of timeline and non food ideas came from her! Plus the entire staff are constantly making sure your guests are having a good time. We had nothing but complements from guests about the food and service!

    Baratta's Restaurant & Italian Catering's reply:

    Meg and Michael being a part of your day was our pleasure! Your smiles will be remembered for a lifetime! Thank you for your kind words! Michelle

    Delicious is an Understatement

    Baratta's was absolutely perfect! They catered not only for our wedding dinner but lunch as well. Our guests raved about the food and there was more than enough for everyone. Michelle was so easy to work with, she made us feel like family! The staff was very professional, and they almost faded into the background. We would highly recommend Baratta's. We would use them again in a heart beat!

    Baratta's Restaurant & Italian Catering's reply:

    Sharon and Dawn you both were a delight to work with and the smiles on your faces made our job easy! We wish you a long and happily ever after! Michelle
