  • Baratta's catered our wedding last week AND served as our venue (Forte) - and we can't say enough great things about our experience. We worked closely with Michelle and Nick while planning our wedding. They made everything super easy and always made us feel so comfortable and excited for our big day. I would 100% recommend working with them for any event. Also, the food was AMAZING. We received many compliments from our guests. Thank you, Baratta's staff!!
