Make Your Catered Event Less Than $8 per person

August 3, 2022

Italian food is notoriously affordable and travels well for catering. Homemade with family-style dining in mind, it's the perfect shareable food item that’s budget friendly. But what does shareable mean during a global pandemic? For Italians, sharing the table and conversation is what matters most, and this year at Russo’s we achieve the family-style, shareable atmosphere with the safe delivery of individually packaged Italian meals. Let us deliver your homemade Italian meals for FREE, and get back to what matters most: warm conversations with loved ones.

For the majority of this year, many have been working from home, and to some, our work family has been equally missed. With our safe group meal options, your distant-office holiday function  can be safely achieved, allowing long-awaited catching up with coworkers only lately seen on screen. Our holiday catering packages are homemade, made to order, and safely delivered for FREE for less than $8 per person! We provide the set up and clean up when you’re done!

We offer cost-effective dining options

Don’t overspend this year. Our budget-friendly Italian meals are going to be a big hit to your guests, not your wallet. Starting at $5 per person*, choose from a wide selection of traditional Italian pastas like baked ziti, spaghetti with meatballs, gnocchi, carbonara, and lasagna. Pair these with classic salads and antipastos like jumbo buffalo wings, Italian meatballs, cauliflower fritti, and garlic bread. Feel like really impressing? Check out our chef-special entrees like chicken parmesan, chicken marsala, or eggplant parmesan. Many of our menu items can be made with our gluten free and vegan guests in mind. Be sure to ask about these options when ordering!

Other budget-friendly serving styles & suggestions

Buffet-style or ‘bulk’ orders are the more well-known budget friendly options when it comes to group or corporate catering. When the time is right, consider Russo’s New York Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen for the next large group, buffet-style catering event. Until then, be sure to connect with our catering representatives to strategize safe meals for the holidays, birthdays, etc.

Another way to keep costs down is to not over-order. Be sure to confirm the estimated attendees and work with your Russo’s catering representative to best determine the most cost-effective plan that will keep everybody fed without much waste. (Although, luckily Italian food makes for one of the easiest leftovers out there!)
