When you're happy, we're happy.

We had Fabio Trabocchi cater a very important dinner for us for about 40 guests this past November. Chef Erin Clarke and her team did a fantastic job of creating culinary delights that wowed our guests. From the creation of the four-course dinner, to the masterful plating, to the skillful service, the evening was just perfect!”
— David Corson, Director of Events Halcyon House, Washington DC
We loved everything about the Fabio Trabocchi Restaurants Catering experience – from the event preparation which Lauren personally helped us with tremendously (setting up various silverware, table, velvet rope, glassware vendors) to the day of timeliness and accuracy of prep work, to the friendly servers, to the amazing food, and finally to the superb clean up. Thank you so much! We would recommend you all to anyone and everyone. You cannot have a better catering service from beginning to end than with the Fabio Trabocchi Restaurant Group!”
