Italian Catering

Vesuvio’s full service Italian catering offers everything from authentic pasta entrees to delicious appetizers like our Neapolitan Eggplant, to specialty desserts such as our homemade Tiramisu and scrumptious Cannolis.

For private parties or corporate events, our service is mostly prepared buffet-style, but we can accommodate family style serving as needed. In fact, the most memorable wedding dinners we serve include family style salads and appetizers, then guests come up to the pizza buffet. At the buffet we interact with guests when needed and like to display a list of available kinds of pizza on the chalkboard.

Our wood-fired pizzas are like no other – we truly are the authentic caterer from Italy.

Vesuvio’s wood-fired pizza package offers a wide selection of toppings to choose from, with specialty ingredients also available. The mobile pizza package complete with 2.5 hours of on-site pizza making, basic paper plates, napkins and utensils, set up and tear down, wood fuel and 60 miles round trip. For more details, please see Mobile Wood-Fired Pizza.
