Customer served with appetizers

We had a fantastic experience with Sean and the team from Gradito. We hired them to serve a collection of small dishes for a party of 30. Communication was fast and easy as we worked through numerous iterations for the event and, most importantly, execution was flawless. The food was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend Gradito for your next event.

I cannot recommend Gradito enough! We decided to work with Sean and Chef Will for our wedding as we wanted our guests to have a one of a kind dining experience that they will enjoy and remember. Our guests could not stop raving about the food and service for days after the wedding and jokingly kept asking if there were any leftovers they could come back for.
