our story

this is who we are

     At Mr. Pasta Catering, our mission is to make delicious, wholesome gourmet food affordable and easily accessible for everyone to enjoy. We believe that a good meal shouldn't be an elite experience; it should be a daily expectation. As a result, Mr. Pasta Catering was established in 2008 to bring the fun and flavor of Italy to your parties, gatherings, and events.

     When you entrust Mr. Pasta with your event, no matter how big or small, we want you and your guests to be instantly transported via your taste buds and imagination to Southern Italy, which is where the Rizzo family’s robust and tantalizing flavor palette originated. Although Chef Karina Rizzo graduated with honors in 2010 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Culinary Management from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, her training began long before that as a little girl watching and tasting her family’s flavorful heartwarming cooking. She is especially inspired by her father, Vincenzo, whose skill and talent has earned him honors in the culinary industry allowing him to serve distinguished guests all around the world. The Rizzos have had a proud lineage of top notch chefs, restaurants, and gelaterias, so it was no surprise that the torch would be carried on by Chef Karina. Today she prides herself in sharing her favorite family recipes with you in the hopes that they will become part of your family and friends’ favorite memories as well!

     No matter how casual the gathering was, food was always a serious matter for the Rizzo family and this tradition hasn’t changed one bit! For this reason, we offer flavorful, delicious homemade meals made-to-order with fresh all-natural ingredients that will leave a lasting impression on you and your guests. We hope that every bite warms your heart and puts a smile on your face. Buon Apetito!
