This was our second wedding so we really knew what "we" wanted.......we had met with other caterers who wanted to sell us "their package"........we were about to give up hope until we called The Villa! From my first conversation with the receptionist I knew I was at the right place! She told me the Frungillo Family has been creating memorable weddings for over 40 yrs and assured me Ben, our Event Specialist, would "understand our wants & needs" and scheduled an appointment for us to meet with him. She couldn't have been more right......Ben was our one stop shopping! He understood exactly the kind of "non traditional" wedding we wanted and created a beautiful ceremony and a fun, relaxing dinner party! DD

BEN FRUNGILLO!!! Thank you so much for giving us the most MEMORABLE, AMAZING, FABULOUS, FANTASTIC wedding we could EVER imagine!!!
Thank you for taking great care of us. Attending to our every need. Treating us like family. Helping us create the best wedding our minds could ever imagine! Because the wedding was not at the typical catering hall, a lot of our friends and family were a little skeptical at how the food would be. But your team blew them away!!! They were amazed at how delicious the food was from cocktail hour to dessert!!! Your entire staff was amazing!! So courteous and professional. Hoped they enjoyed the wedding as well.
Alejandra and her husband are beyond words...they are just the best people! They attended to our EVERY need. Actually, not only did they take care of Ken and me, but our families as well!

You have an amazing team and without you, our DREAM WEDDING would have never been possible!!! SO THANK YOU AGAIN FOR MAKING OUR DREAMS COME TRUE!!!

Lastly, we are going to miss planning our wedding with you!

But we look forward to planning other celebrations with you!!! (You can't get rid of us now!!!)

This is not goodbye, just see ya later!!!

For those who are questioning whether or not you should choose Frungillo Caterers for your event, STOP IT!!! There is NO DOUBT that they will provide you with a SPECTACULAR EVENT!!!

My husband and I cannot say enough about how incredibly thrilled we were with our experience with Frungillos Catering, and especially Ben Frungillo. From the moment we met Ben we both immediately knew that he would be able to make our vision come alive, and we were right. From day one Ben approached our unique wedding with the utmost enthusiasm and skill. Our wedding was actually off site at the Loews Jersey theater, where Ben and his crew have been doing wedding for a number of years, so he very familiar with the venue. Ben was totally on top of things and essentially acted as a wedding coordinator. Frungillos was so much more than our caterer (and they excelled at everything food related!). Ben helped us plan our day of timeline, handled all of the arranging, setup and deliveries for the day of the wedding, and pretty much is the reason that our wedding turned out to be perfect. He had so many wonderful suggestions that were personally catered to our unique wedding theme, and he was always quick to give his input about every detail down to the napkin colors. There really is just not enough to say about our experience working with Ben and Frungillos, except that we are eternally grateful for his obvious passion for what he does. I should also mention that we were equally satisfied with the staff who were working the day of our wedding, and our guests raved about the food. Ben also made sure that we actually got to eat on our wedding day, as promised. He truly went out of his way to make our wedding day a fairytale and we enthusiastically recommend Frungillos to anyone who is looking for just a little more than a catering company, because they were so much more than that for us.

Food for our wedding was amazing . Disappointed to find out so late in the process that their pastry chef would be unable to make our wedding cake, but our white desserts bar turned out stellar. The cocktail hour and seated dinner were absolutely incredible and just as we expected.

Frungillo Catering did an absolutely wonderful job with our wedding, which was at the Inn at Millrace Pond. John worked with us to help create a wonderful ceremony, and was always available over email to answer questions and help us out. The food was exceptional - it was served warm, everyone raved about it - even the vegetarian option was to die for! The cake was gorgeous, and the guests are still complimenting the desserts, the staff, and the way catering set up the venue with our decorations. Angel, our Maitre'd, was a class act, and called a week before to check in with me and introduce himself, and then took really great care of us on the day. He helped organize people to walk down the aisle, and it took him only about 5 minutes to learn the names of our families and wedding party. The servers took great care of us, and the one on detail for the bride and groom knew exactly what to do to keep us hydrated and fed. The top layer of our cake was beautifully packaged. The venue was gorgeous, and everyone keeps telling us it was the best wedding ever! The bartenders handled everyone very well too. And of course Catering worked seamlessly with Peggy at the Flower Mill, who did brilliantly with the flowers and who is extremely kind and warm. I could never run out of good things to say about working with Frungillo and their team!!

Frungillo catered my wedding at the Inn at Millrace Pond and the day went better than we could have imagined and was absolutely everything we could have asked for. I worked with John leading up to our wedding- he is very responsive and knowledgeable at the Inn and was very accommodating and understanding of a dietary restriction one of my guests had. He eased any fears I had and I trusted him that our day would go as planned. John was great to work with and offered great suggestions.

The service from what I experienced was fine - I did not have much interaction with servers or bartenders as I was constantly talking to someone or people were bringing me drinks, but I didn't hear anything bad. I heard the cocktail hour food was great and everyone seemed to enjoy their dinner. Our cake was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

Our Maitre'd Angel was great! The day ran so smoothly because of him and I felt like I was in great hands! The staff setting up the tent and doing all the prep the day of set everything up perfectly and I was impressed with how great everything looked. I was told I would hear from the Maitre'd a week in advance and only heard from him 2 days before so I got a little nervous, but everything turned out fine!

The only negative feedback I have is that they charged us to put the gold chairs under the tent and use the wooden chairs on the lawn for the ceremony (I was told the standard was metal fold-out chairs go on the lawn and the white wooden chairs in the tent)-why charge for this? I would have expected Frungillo to invest in using the better quality chairs as the standard as it looks classier and more elegant.

Our experience at the Inn was truly wonderful thanks to Frungillo. I highly recommend using them for your wedding - it is very clear they know how to put on a great wedding and really do all of the hard work for you. Thanks Frungillo- our wedding was PERFECT!!

John and the staff at Frungillo Caterers were amazing. Throughout the planning process John made us feel so comfortable, because he is so knowledgeable about events and is incredibly organized. The staff the day of the wedding worked very hard and were warm and friendly. They fit right in with our atmosphere. They were incredibly professional but not cold. You could tell they have all been doing this for a long time. Our maître d' was organized and cheerful. He walked us through the entire event. On top of everything else, the food was amazing!!! Our guests have been raving about everything from the appetizers and meal to the cake. We chose the cocktail reception and it worked out perfectly. I cannot say enough how great our experience with Frungillo was. Thank you everyone for helping to make our day unforgettable!

The Inn at Millrace Pond: if you are looking for a unique outdoor venue that really highlights the beauty of nature and the outdoors, this venue is for you. The florist on site-Peggy-is an absolute pleasure to work with, she is extremely good at what she does and is also very reasonably priced. The Inn has its own restaurant/bar onsite, which we thought would be convenient for rehearsal dinner/more reveling after the wedding. This turned out to not be the case. The manager of the Inn, Sue Ann, Is not responsive or accommodating. It took several weeks to confirm availability and she seemed bothered by me reaching out to her for a response. She recommended we go with the family style menu for our rehearsal dinner. The food was served cold as if it had been prepared much in advance of our event. There was also not enough food for all of our guests. It was extremely embarrassing when my father in-law asked for more steak and the waitress told him “there was no more”. Additionally, the wait staff rushed the meal along trying to get us out to make room for the Friday night rush. The rehearsal dinner was a real disappointment and the price was very high, especially considering the product that was served. Instead of being a celebratory event, it was an embarrassment to us in front of our family. The food Frungillo serves is great, but the wait staff left something to be desired: they didn't know the menu, they didn't serve what was requested, there was no water service. I inadvertently placed a card in a waiters jacket which was placed on the back of my groom's chair at the end of the night. While I take full responsibility for not being more observant and realizing that was not my groom’s jacket, I think this sums up the caliber of people working for Frungillo. This was my mistake but any trustworthy person with integrity would return the card to the couple. We reached out to our captain and maître d to see if it was returned with no response.
