Testimonials

The food always exceeds my expectations. I always want fresh, local organic food and Orzo never misses the mark which I appreciate. The service is always professional. And what may only be important to me, is that my home is left spotless – when the party is over I don’t need to spend any time getting the house back to normal or dealing with the empty bottles. I have used Orzo many times for both small dinners and large non-profit receptions and they handle both with ease.

We at Easton welcome the opportunity to collaborate with Orzo for off-site catering events. The restaurant Orzo on Main Street is defined by culinary creativity and a thoughtful experienced staff – and the heart of the restaurant travels with them on each off-premise event.

Owners, Ken and Charles, work diligently to ensure that every menu is crafted to our client’s specific wishes. The kitchen enjoys creating unique menus, and strives to surprise guests with dishes that defy the limitations of traditional off-site catering. The planning experience is very personal, and each client becomes a member of the Orzo family. Delivering exceptional service and quality cuisine is fundamental to the Orzo Catering operation.

I have been using Orzo for our Artist and Crew Hospitality backstage at the Charlottesville Pavilion now for several seasons. I could not be more happy with the quality and efficiency of their services.
Feeding a large number and varied range of individuals can be difficult, especially behind the scenes at a concert when I’m required to make sure everyone from the rock stars to the guys who push the road cases are happy and well fed. Orzo has consistently gone above and beyond in order to provide an incredible range of local, well prepared, fine dining meals that also hold up nicely on a catering line.
After almost every show, the weary tour bus travelers can’t stop telling me how much they enjoyed being served a nutritious, balanced, and tasty meal for a change. Orzo is also very flexible when it comes to dietary restrictions and menu changes. I have yet to come across a food request they couldn’t work with me on to ensure that everyone’s needs were met. Often, I hear that our venue has provided some of the best meals they’ve received while out on tour, which in turn makes every person’s long show day just that much easier.
I would not hesitate to recommend Orzo’s catering team for someone’s event, private party, or even office meal needs. They are a professional, reliable, and enjoyable team that I will definitely continue to utilize now and in the future.

Two years later and people still rave about the food at our wedding. We’ve had numerous guests tell us it was the best wedding food they’d ever had! Ken and Charles were so fantastic to work with. The food was displayed beautifully and tasted even better. They helped us develop the most delicious menu and incorporated some of our favorites like an artichoke bar and late night mac n cheese. They truly went above and beyond to make our day so special. Having Orzo cater our wedding was the easiest and best decision we made!
