In fact, our Master Chef Vincenzo who has been with Nanina’s since its inception is famous in his own rite for his authentic recipes. After thousands of rave reviews regarding Chef Vincenzo’s original pasta sauces and Italian delicacies, Nanina’s has answered the public’s request for access to our products. In December of 2005, Nanina’s In The Park Gourmet Sauce made its debut at Monmouth University to 380 guests from area businesses, and met with unprecedented success. The school’s entrepreneurial class chose Nanina’s in the Park and Chef Vincenzo, for their class project that year. Building on their original venture, Nanina’s has designed, developed and brought forth to the general public (with discerning palates…) four delectable, homemade, gourmet, Italian sauces. Now available at your local grocer or via the web at www.naninas.com, are Nanina’s original Marinara, Vodka Fra Diavlo and Tomato Basil Sauce. Recognizing the hard work and effort put forth by both the students and the University, Nanina’s has earmarked a portion of the profits for an entrepreneurial scholarship for the students of Monmouth University in appreciation of their efforts.

Nanina's in the Park is an extraordinary venue. We had our daughter's wedding there last week and it was truly an exceptional experience.
From our initial discussion with Vicky, our banquet manager, to the final reception, things went seamless.
With only one wedding at a time, you are their top priority. We can’t say enough about Vicky who handled every detail and was responsive to our every inquiry. She was always accessible, either through e mail or in person to address any question that arose throughout the planning. Vicky made sure that all the details, right down to the placing of the favors on the table were done exactly as we wanted. She even had us take a look at the room before the guests were escorted in so that we could make sure it was done to our satisfaction !
During the reception the Bride and Groom were attended to as VIP’s ! as were the parents of the Bride and Groom. We all felt very cared for. As a matter of fact, each guest felt as if they too were waited ... Read moreupon individually, and we had a large wedding of 240 people !
Ah…The food…. Our guests are still talking about it. The quality, taste and choices were amazing. The cocktail hour was exceptional, with the guests insisting they could go right to dessert, but Chef Vincent, who you will get to know during the planning, out did himself with a wonderful sit down dinner.
We added the zeppole bar to the Viennese table which topped off a fabulous evening. Vicky suggested that we get cake boxes for the guests to take home slices of wedding cake since they may not get to the wedding cake. That turned out to be a great idea. The staff had a table set up in the vestibule with To -Go cups for coffee, tea, and hot chocolate along with the individual cake boxes of wedding cake. !!!
The end to a perfect evening and wedding.
Thank you Nanina’s and Vicky for making Our Daughter and new Son’s wedding so special.
