Private dining experiences in New York City and the metropolitan area

Every Meal Is a Story of Passion, Devotion & Care for Detail

Alloro is a personal chef & hospitality company based in New York City. Known as the tree of art, Alloro or bay trees create beautiful leaves all year long. The deep green color of the leaves is symbolic of courage, hope, and belief in self. In ancient Rome, it was seen as a sign of victory and still today a crown of Alloro is placed upon the heads of all of Italy’s college graduates as the highest honor.
Reserve a uniquely Italian dining experience that reflects the authentic hospitality and culinary journey reminiscent of a genuine home-cooked meal in a traditional trullo along the narrow cobblestone streets of Puglia, Italy.

We recently hired Chef Pasquale to cater a meal at our home in Connecticut. The meal was fantastic and the chef took the time to explain all the ingredients and dishes to our guests. It was truly a wonderful evening and one that we will not forget! We would highly recommend Alloro and Chef Pasquale. He is very personable and passionate about food!
