I'm not one to put all 5's into any rating, but Two Steps deserves it. Handled our daughter's wedding at our house beautifully with professionalism, a take-control attitude and a well thought out plan. Went beyond the call to manage the night and others, especially the rental vendor. And, the food got high marks all around from the quests.

My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Ciao catering and Tom and Kayte. We did extensive research to find our wedding caterer and the extensive search, which funneled down to Ciao Catering, truly paid off. The quality of the food and services was exceptional, but more than that, Tom and Kayte were beyond wonderful to work with throughout the whole process. Finding the best vendors so you can enjoy your wedding day knowing you are in good hands is really important. They were responsive, professional, helpful with suggestions, and helped us through the whole wedding process (from finding vendors and set up ideas). I felt completely safe in their hands and was able to enjoy my wedding without any worry and they took care of everything flawlessly throughout the night. I also want to praise their staff the night of the wedding. They were warm, cheerful, super sweet and helpful and did a fantastic job. My husband and I missed a lot of the appetizers as we were doing our private photos and her staff made sure to save and bring us the appetizers so we could experience and try our wedding food. In addition, as we got off to a late start due to traffic, Kayte worked wonderfully with our other vendors (DJ and photographer) to move the schedule around as needed and still make sure the filet was cooked perfectly and at the right time. My vendors all coordinated together on their own and I did not have to worry about a thing. My husband and I are so happy we went with Ciao catering and highly recommend them for any event, wedding or other. Thank you so much Kayte and Tom for being a part of our wedding day and making it so very special.

My husband and I used Ciao Catering for our wedding in September. Kayte and her team were absolutely AMAZING. We had our wedding at a private venue so we had to provide everything ourselves. I was so overwhelmed, but Kayte was always available to answer my questions. Kayte made a custom menu for us with our favorite things and was so flexible with whatever we wanted. I would email her all the time and she would respond right away. She provided us with so much more than we could have imagined. We had trouble getting in contact with our party rental company (chairs,linens, ect) so Kayte stepped right in and helped us figure everything out. The days leading up to the wedding, she was such a huge help and took so much stress off my plate.

The day of the wedding, everything was set up perfectly and was so beautiful. The service crew looked great and were on top of their game. The servers were so polite and the bartenders were great. The food was delicious, I am still getting rave reviews! Kayte and her team helped to make the flow of the night perfect from the cocktail hour, to dinner to cake cutting and dessert. It was perfect.

The next day, we went down to the venue and it was so immaculately clean, that we did not have to worry about a thing. All the tables were put away, chairs folded and everything put back in its place. This was such a huge help as the last thing we wanted to do was clean the day after our wedding.

I only have great things to say and Kayte and Ciao Catering and recommend them to everyone! They were fantastic and you will not regret using their service.

Tom and Kayte are such a great team, and we are so thankful to them for their beyond exceptional service. Hands down, the catering was the EASIEST part of our wedding planning -- we didn't lift a finger, except to sample a bunch of delicious dishes at the Two Steps restaurant where we were waited on like royalty. I have recommended them to everyone I know, and I continue to get so many compliments on the catering from the wedding. "The food was so good! The filet.... oh my god, the filet." "The hors d'oeuvres just kept coming!" "Who was your caterer, they were so attentive! I'm going to tell my niece"

Once you read through the hors d'oeuvres and entrees available to choose from... you're going to have some tough choices, because just by reading the descriptions and names you can tell that they're creative food creations and not regular standard wedding food that you find everywhere else. Absolutely delicious.

But one of the most important things to know about Ciao! Catering and Events is that they go above and beyond in helping you plan your wedding. I'm not even talking about just catering. They help you make your event schedule, they really ask about the details for your center pieces and other decorations (which they set up flawlessly), they send out for quotes on liquor and event rentals like linens, plates and silverware (who else would do this work for you?)

And the communication:
The communication was so prompt through every single email, and always so friendly! They even encouraged us to keep the questions coming! We were never an inconvenience, and their responses were thorough and never rushed. We had nothing to worry about on our wedding day because Tom and Kayte did such a wonderful job. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

We cannot say enough good things about Ciao! Catering and Events/Two Steps Downtown Grille. The food was incredible and the service was impeccable! Kayte and her team worked with us to create an amazing wedding. They coordinated the timing of the event, the rentals, the beverages and the food...it couldn't have been easier or more delightful.
I would gladly recommend Kayte and her staff for any event! In fact, if we ever need a caterer for anything else, Ciao! Catering and Events/Two Steps Downtown Grille will be our first call!

Ciao! Catering and Two Steps Downtown Grille are simply amazing! Tom and Kayte are extremely professional and were very attentive with anything that we needed. My husband and I went with Ciao! Caterting since we only had a few options and such a short time to choose a caterer for our wedding that was affordable and had availability. We also chose them because they were one of the top vendors listed at our venue and with such positive reviews that we had to check them out. All the reviews were dead on, from the initial consultation/tasting to the setup and outstanding food at our wedding, our experience with Tom, Kayte and the entire catering staff was phenomenal! We are beyond happy we chose Ciao! Catering/ Two Steps and we highly recommend them, We would give them 10 stars if the rating went up that high.

Tom, Kayte, and the rest of the staff at Ciao did an amazing job catering our wedding!! We could not have asked for better food, service, guidance, communication, etc. We got a ton of complements on both the food, and the staff, who were all extremely friendly and helpful.

Food-wise, the highest praise Ciao can get is from my extended family from Louisiana, who can be a little critical of southern food, and they LOVED the Gumbo turnover hors d'oeuvres. Those were Tom's suggestion during our first meeting, and they were a huge hit, along with the rest of the hors d'oeuvres and entrees. We had 3 entrée choices, and my wife and I split all 3, and they were amazing!

Tom and Kayte were extremely helpful from day 1, and an absolute pleasure to work with. They were always professional, responded quickly to all of our questions, and were flexible all the way through to our wedding day. They were a huge help in coordinating the day, working with us on our menu choices, and providing advice on rentals and the bar.

The staff at the reception was excellent, and they assigned someone to regularly check on me and my wife, to see if we needed anything. She was amazing, and was always keeping an eye on us, or checking in to make sure we had whatever it was that we needed. Every server at our reception had a smile on their face, was extremely friendly, and seemed to genuinely enjoy working at our wedding, and working for Ciao.

When meeting with and deciding on wedding vendors, I found the most important criteria to be “who do you trust to take care of you, and treat your wedding as their most important event of the year”. We knew after our first meeting with Tom that we could trust him and his staff, and they did not disappoint in any way!! I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer for their wedding or any event!

In all honesty if you want the best quality, professionalism, food, staff, and what I consider a good friendship this is the caterer for you! Tom and his staff made our day amazing. They never once said the word NO! We got everything we asked for and more. Everyone that attended our wedding complemented the staff and food saying that this was one of the best catered events they have ever been to! Our wedding was at lighthouse point in New Haven and being an outdoor event we didn't know how well they could prepare the food with no real kitchen, but wow is all I can say everything was fresh and full of flavor. We rate them a 20 out of 10 if you are having a wedding and need a caterer do not hesitate to call and meet with them!

From the moment we met with the owners, Tom and Kayte, we knew our wedding would be in good hands. Throughout the process, we appreciated their wisdom and advice, as we knew how experienced they were at catering events, especially at the Waveny House. In preparing for our big day, every detail was considered and reviewed, because they cared to ask to ensure our vision would come to fruition.

The day was flawless. Seeing the set-up and orchestration of so many people to bring our vision to life was incredible. Every staff member wash friendly, approachable, caring, thoughtful and considerate. Every single need was met and anticipated. Nothing was a problem a staff member couldn't handle.

All of our family and friends commented on how extraordinary the food, service and staff were. Everyone was blown away by the overall day, which had everything to do with the staff of Ciao!

We are eternally grateful to the staff who took care of us like family!
