"My husband and I loved working with Candace at Tarallucci e Vino - and we'd highly recommend Tarallucci. I loved everything and don't know where to start. First of all, Candace was extremely kind, flexible, and detail-oriented - which made our wedding planning so easy - and she took care of everything, including venue, furniture rentals (plates, napkins, tablecloth, etc.), rehearsal walk throughs, cake cutting, menus (our guests were not easy - lots of dietary restrictions); among many other things. She also promptly and swiftly corresponded with our day-of-coordinator and vendors. Her team in charge on the day of were so nice and brought me food during the cocktail hour knowing that I wouldn't be able to eat much that day. We really appreciated Candace's team's professionalism and thoughtfulness. Our friends/guests were raving about the venue and the food -- so, so delicious and our tasting day was probably the most memorable part of the wedding planning process. We also had a bar and they made a customized drinks for us. I don't think my husband and I could not have planned a NYC wedding without Candace/Tarallucci's help. We are so grateful :) !"
"We could have not have had a better experience with the entire team at Taralluci e Vino! From the minute we saw the space and met Basia, the site and catering coordinator, we were sold. Not only is the space beautiful, Basia is so kind and easy to work with, it made the whole process entirely enjoyable. We did not have a wedding coordinator and Basia was beyond helpful, giving us tips about timing and how to best use the space, and working with us for months to make sure every detail was exactly the way we had envisioned it. On the day of the wedding I was totally floored by how amazing the space looked and how perfectly everything had been executed. The food and wine were truly incredible and our guests get remarking on how delicious everything was. Not an easy feat, in a room full of food-obsessed New Yorkers. Not to mention, the entire staff was beyond professional and sweet - making sure we had appetizers and champagne while we took photos - and serving everything perfectly. I would recommend working with Tarallucci for any upcoming event, from a wedding to a dinner party! We were thrilled with them."

"We hosted our company’s holiday celebration with Tarallucci e Vino and it was an absolutely pleasure. Basia was lovely to work with and from day one of contact, she was responsive, helpful and very organized. I never had a worry – all the details were perfect. The party was just what we had envisioned and the private mezzanine space was intimate and the perfect size to host our guests. The food was a HIT! Highly recommended for any private event and celebration."

"We can't think of enough compliments to describe the incredible service provided by the team at Tarallucci e Vino.
The loft space could not have been a more perfect space for our engagement party. We had precise ideas of how we wanted our celebration to be, from the space, to the food, to the decor, and they really took the time to understand all of our wishes. The evening was executed to perfection and we will treasure it forever.
We can't recommend them highly enough."

"When we arrived on the day of the shower, the room was magnificent!!! It was elegant and welcoming. All of our guests raved about the beauty and uniqueness of the space. And the food was awesome. You often don't eat at your own event, but I didn't want to miss anything, and ended up eating everything. It was remarkably wonderful food. The shower was perfect and my daughter could not have been happier. I would recommend this venue (and have) to anyone. I am sure you will get referrals from the guests that attended. Everyone was as impressed as we were. I would do it again in a heartbeat."

"We recently hosted a rehearsal dinner at Taralucci e Vino. It far exceeded our expectations! Everything was top notch! The room was beautiful, and the staff was very attentive. The food was incredible! Our guests are still talking about how perfect everything was for this very special dinner. We would not hesitate to recommend Taralucci e Vino not only as a great restaurant but also the perfect spot to host a private event!"

"My husband and I hosted our daughter's engagement party at Taralluci e Vino. I am an event planner in Northern California and even with my experience I was apprehensive about long distance planning of this important event. But once I traded emails with Basia Biddle the event manager, I knew I was in great hands. She answered my million questions thoroughly and promptly and I received a proposal within 24 hours of developing our menu. She made lots of promises... beautiful party space just as depicted on the website, amazing service and perfect food. Plus, she said she would be at the event from setup throughout the entire party. And it all came true exactly as she had promised. Setup was seamless and the room was beautiful. The service staff was amazing ... (shout outs to Matt, Sonia and Maria!). We are grateful to Basia and the entire crew at Taralluci for their talent, professionalism and hospitality."
"Big shout-outs to TARALLUCCI E VINO, the most darling & delish little NYC restaurant and fab #nokidhungry supporter! Was in town for one night and I showed up to have dinner with a friend who'd made a res and was delighted to find myself surrounded by TEAM NO KID HUNGRY stickers! Thank you, thank you for all that you do!"
"My husband and I had an intimate wedding reception for 36 people in the Mezzanine space. The space was beautiful, the staff was so accommodating and friendly, and the food was the best wedding food that we and our guests have ever had! We started with a small cocktail hour and had a family style dinner service, which was perfect. We brought a wedding cake, but the desserts that the restaurant had were delicious! Wouldn't have changed a thing."

"I hosted my daughters bridal shower in the mezzanine of the Union Square location and could not have been happier with the way the day turned out. The staff was beyond friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent and the venue set up beautifully. All my questions during the preparation were answered quickly and professionally. I highly recommend Tarallucci e Vino for any event you may have!"
"This is a testimonial to our experience using Tarallucci E Vino for our Holiday party on December 16th 2015, Our contact and hostess, Ms. Candace Kiersky, did a tremendous job organizing our event! She took the time to make sure that everything that was requested was done, including making sure we were happy with the menu, seating, decorations, and of course the pricing. She was flexible and allowed us to change things as we went along.
The event was magnificent! The Mezzanine (the room we used) was set up with the requested seating and decorations. When we arrived we had the Tarallucci folks waiting for us (standing near our company sign - which they made for us), a concierge in front of the building, waitresses took our coats, offered appetizers and a fulltime bartender tended to our "liquid" needs. We asked the main buffet to be served by 7 pm, so at 655 pm I saw staff busily setting up the buffet meal. At 7 pm most of our guests started eating the delicious food, most had seconds because the food was awesome!! The guests had plenty of room to sit at the main seating area, walk around or sit on the couch and chairs (set up like a living room) or various little private sitting areas. We thought all was going very well until the coffee and desserts appeared. The desserts were also as delicious as the food! We were in heaven!! Thank you Candace and the staff of Tarallucci E Vino for an awesome holiday event. Most of our guest felt this was our best holiday party ever!! Thanks again Candace for making this happen, you guys are the best!!"

"My husband and I held our intimate wedding in the Mezzanine last year. We immediately loved the rustic feel of the space, but it was Basia's energy, demeanor, and professionalism that sold us. We loved working with her and she made our planning so much easier. For the night of, we coupled the tables for a big family-style feel and then hit the dance floor over by the bar. The food was delicious and the portions were just enough. Marta was also a pleasure to talk to and work with, and thanks to Anna and Sterian, the service was seamless. Thank you, Tarallucci e Vino staff for ending our perfect day on such a perfect note! You will forever have a place in our hearts."
