Welcome to The Black Italian
Your Authentic Italian-Soul To-Go Specialists!
We make our food with a mission to fill your hunger with unique and delicious foods cooked with love. We bless each meal before it comes to you and we are encouraging families, friends, co-workers or any group to enjoy meals together, becoming one in breaking bread together and fulfilling your hunger physically and spiritually.
The Black Italian offers family style catering to-go with a unique concept. This means your dishes are readily available for delivery and set up so that all can present and serve themselves. This is an old authentic Italian traditional way of eating. Everyone gets to pick a little of what they like or a lot of what they love! We always provide disposable serving-ware and also provide the option of disposable eating-ware and chafers and sternos if needed. Plus, everything is yours to keep including any left-over food which is one of the differences between traditional full-service caterers and what The Black Italian’s Family Style Catering To-Go method is.
