"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."
-Melissa, Dr. Gross Skincare company
"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."

"Dear Tarallucci e Vino, thank you for making our wedding a success!
We held both our ceremony and 70-person reception in the Third Floor Loft above the restaurant. Our guests loved the space (beautiful, especially if you take advantage of the natural light from two walls of windows) and the food (delicious, with delightful little desserts). The service was also efficient and cheerful.
The space is flexible and super-accommodating of your decorations – we brought in string lights, a hanging backdrop, and other things which they helped us attach to the walls in creative ways. And since they weren’t booked the day before, they kindly let us in to decorate and hold our rehearsal.
The planning process with Tarallucci was pretty much stress-free. We are incredibly grateful to Basia, the Director of Private Events. Over the several months leading up to the event, she was extremely helpful and organized, always quick to grasp what we wanted to do, and paid attention to every detail. And of course, she kept things running calmly and smoothly throughout the day of the wedding.
We all had a wonderful time, and can’t recommend Tarallucci enough!"
-Alice and Ed
My company hosted our Holiday Party in the 6th Floor Loft space. The venue was beautiful and the event was made even better by the attentiveness of the staff. Leading up to the event, Basia was a joy to work with and extremely helpful. She offered to help coordinate with out outside vendors directly, which was a huge help throughout the planning process. She was quick to respond to emails, and was willing to do whatever she could to make the event a success. I would recommend this restaurant and venue to anyone looking to host a great dinner or cocktail hour. The night went off without a hitch thanks to Basia and her team. Thank you!

"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."
-Chris and Billy
"Tarallucci e Vino helped us create an incredible and memorable wedding celebration. Even though they were "just" our caterer, the Tarallucci team went the extra mile time and time again -- from helping us find and decide how to optimize and decorate the beautiful 3rd floor loft space to choosing rentals to helping find vendors -- they really did all they could to help make planning a wedding as easy and enjoyable as possible.
From the first time we met Basia and saw the space, we immediately knew that we were in good hands. Basia listened to us in a way that no other events manager had -- she quickly understood that we didn't want to have a traditional wedding and was committed to helping us plan "our" kind of party. Once we signed, she was regularly in touch and helped us keep things on track. I can't emphasize enough how reassuring it was to know that she was in our corner. Basia wanted to make sure that every detail surpassed our expectations.
Now, on to the food. The food at the restaurant, at the tasting and at the wedding itself was incredible. Our guests kept telling us how much they were enjoyed it, and I can't stop thinking about that trofie pasta! The staff was so attentive to our needs, and brought us special plates of the hors doerves, food and drinks while we were socializing with the guests. The bartenders were also wonderful, and I know that my family and friends had fun hanging by the bar with them.
We're so thrilled that we chose Tarallucci and feel lucky that we can continue to enjoy their great food and service after the wedding at their restaurants around the city!

Our company hosted our company holiday party at the 18th Street location in the private Mezzanine space. Everything was so amazing!! It was a perfect setting for our 25 guests - a homey apartment-like feel. We worked with Basia Biddle from our first inquiry. She responded to all questions timely throughout the planning process and could not have been more accommodating. She was personally at the event the whole time assisting her terrific staff with everything from greeting guests to bartending! We had an open bar the whole night, did a cocktail hour with 5 delicious passed hors d'oeuvres, and had a family-style dinner. As soon as a platter was empty, a fresh full one came out! I would HIGHLY recommend having an event at Tarallucci e Vino!!!
-Annie, Hire Society
"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."
"I recently threw my mother a major birthday celebration at Tarallucci. I was very nervous about throwing a great party for her and Basia and the Tarallucci staff made it a wonderful occasion!
They have a large private room above the restaurant on 18th street. The room has an industrial feel, brick walls, rustic wooden tables, a lounge area, private toilet and direct connection to the kitchen. They dress it up with succulents and candles. It has a lovely warm feel!
We started with a cocktail hour in the lounge area. It is spacious enough to accommodate a large party but still has an intimate and warm feel. The entire meal was wonderful. Chef Cara and Basia worked with me on finding the right menu for my family. The seafood salad was excellent and the Orchietta, Branzino and lamb chops were to die for. Dessert was exquisite with the Tiramisu being just the right consistency and level of sweetness. The second and third courses were interspersed with a delightful palate cleanser.
Excellent service and some delightful wines made for a memorable evening.
Many thanks to the Tarallucci team!"
The team at Tarallucci e Vino created a wonderful meal and beautiful atmosphere in their mezzanine space when my organization hosted a post-event dinner for our speakers. Basia helped me select a dinner menu that satisfied a range of dietary restrictions and eating preferences. The evening was intimate, understated, and, of course, delicious.
The service during the meal and behind-the-scenes was professional and made it easy for me, so I could focus on our speakers' event.
Thank you, Basia, Luca, and everyone at Tarallucci e Vino!
-Felicia, Neighborhood Preservation Center
Thank you to all of those at Tarallucci E Vino involved with our fantastic birthday party! Working with the event coordinator, Candace, was extremely easy and a wonderful experience – we were very well taken care of and accommodated from day one. All of our guests truly enjoyed the event and the exceptional service was definitely noticed. This is a beautiful location we will certainly use in the future for private events to come!
-Brittany, Gordon Haskett
I had an excellent, all-around experience working with Candace from Tarallucci e Vino. We worked together to plan my office holiday party at the East Village location. It was a seamless process and everything worked very smoothly. The food and service was top quality and made for a special experience for our entire staff. I would highly recommend Tarallucci e Vino for any party or large group event.
