    We used Barbara & Co Catering for our October wedding at Bargetto Winery and had a GREAT experience! Marina was very easy to communicate with and accommodated our request to have all Italian food. The food was delicious and all of our guests loved it! It was a great value for the high quality food and service. Marina also helped us find a great place to get all our rentals and helped us pick them out. We'd highly recommend Barbara & Co for your wedding!

    I am in love with the food that Barbara and Company made for our wedding. My partner and I are both vegan and Marina made us an all-vegan menu that all of our guests loved. In addition, Marina was very easy to work with and she always got back to us right away. My partner and I also really appreciated how well Barbara and Company works with Alexis Party Rental. I would definitely recommend this company to a friend!

    Barbara and Company is the BEST caterer in Santa Cruz County. I have used them many times for work events, and also for my wedding this past spring. My venue was WAY out in the cuts, and they had no problem with it. We paid extra to have them set up all the rentals (totally worth it) and they captured my vision PERFECTLY. I was blown away with how amazing the tables looked all set up - they really have a great eye for that. Marina is so fantastic to work with there - she's professional yet so friendly, very accommodating yet honest about food and rental choices/options, and is just such a pleasure to work with. I wouldn't even waste my time talking to other caterers - these guys ROCK!
