"Lauren DeLisa and the staff at La Piastra made our wedding reception even more incredible! Lauren was so friendly, easily accessible, and great to work with. She created a menu that was unique to our tastes and perfect for our Fall vineyard wedding. Her expertise and talent has our guests still raving about "the best food they've ever had at a wedding!" We highly recommend La Piastra to give your wedding reception that special touch that will impress your guests and meet your every expectation. -Josh and Alice Frederich"
“Lauren and La Piastra did a fantastic job with the buffet food at our wedding. She brought a number of dishes to the table to work with our Fall themed wedding, including versions of dishes with and without nuts, great vegetarian options, and a bunch of gluten free options.The buffet from La Piastra was fresh and hot, and very popular with our guests. Finally, Lauren was a champion at communicating with us before the wedding. We had a total of 70 emails exchanged; her responses were always prompt, courteous and intelligent. We hope to have more occasions to use La Piastra's catering, and cannot recommend them more.” -Shaun & Rubina
"Thanks to La Piastra, our wedding reception was a total success! Our guests are still talking about the food. Thank you for working with us on such short notice. We appreciated all of your support and guidance through the process! You will certainly be hearing from us for our next party! Thanks again!" ~Christine & Mike Kapusta
