Pasta Hostess

Experience. Authentic. Italian. Food.


Hoping you had a restful Sunday! We just wanted to reach out and say thank you so much for catering our wedding on Saturday.  You were so amazing with ensuring everyone was well fed and happy. We also appreciate your flexibility when the oven didn’t work!

The food was delicious and people could not stop talking about how good the food was. We are excited to eat the leftovers tonight 🙂

Thank you again for all of your hard work! Hope to work with you again in the future:)

We recently had the Pasta Hostess cater a small party in our back yard and I can honestly say, it was one of the best at-home dining experiences I’ve had. I called and spoke to Linda Nardilli about my event. I was met with a professional that worked with me to create an ideal menu for the party. We worked out the details, got a price and went over a few dietary challenges that a few of my guests had, which she easily accommodated.

Linda was excellent and delivered exactly what we spoke about. The appetizers were plentiful and delicious, the main course was perfectly timed and the only thing I was disappointed with was that I had not ordered extras for the next day.

As a part of the service, The Pasta Hostess cleans any work stations she uses and sanitizes before and after the catering. Clean up was minimal, Linda even helped load the dishwasher! Thank you very much for delivering a unique, impressive and affordable experience we won’t soon forget.

Linda has incredible knowledge about Italian cuisine. We brought Linda in to teach a class at our university residence and had a great time. Linda has an amazing personality that puts everyone at ease. She makes cooking and learning fun for anyone taking her class plus the food is delicious! I would highly recommend Linda for any event whether it’s catering or cooking classes. Thank you Linda!

I found out about Pasta Hostess a year and a half ago. Since then Linda has catered for me for two showers and two Christmas parties. She is professional and very efficient. Her food that she serves is delicious. She has an excellent menu with a wide variety of food to choose from. Linda comes to my home prepared, cooks in my kitchen, serves us and cleans up. The party hostess can just sit back and enjoy her guests without any worries. I very much recommend Pasta Hostess for all occasions.

I had the pleasure of having  Linda the “Pasta Hostess” come to my annual girls’ weekend.  The food was amazing and everyone enjoyed themselves.  Not only was she entertaining but the menu she put together and prepared was enjoyed by everyone!
Can’t wait to do it again. XOXO

I have hosted two pasta-making classes with the “Pasta Hostess”.  Both were a great success.  Not only does Linda know how to create fabulous Italian food, she has the natural ability to teach others how to do the same.  Using her great kitchen knowledge and skills, along with a generous sense of humour,  Linda made sure all the participants learned how to make different pastas, sauces, starters, and desserts.  We enjoyed a fabulous meal together and each of us took home the makings of another meal to share with our folks at home.  Linda stayed to tidy the kitchen and after she packed up, all that was left in my kitchen was the glorious aroma we’d created and lots of good memories.  I’ll host another pasta party soon.  Thank you Linda.  XX

Linda held a beginners class at my home that my friends still talk about.
Not only was the learning fun and easy, but delicious as well. Thank you Linda!

Linda, you are for sure the Pasta Queen! Your authentic recipes are not only delicious but possible to recreate. When you held your pasta classes at my house the participants were always so delighted. I think most of all they were impressed by your hands-on, fun approach to making pasta and an entire meal from scratch. Your love of people with that warm twist of humour makes your classes so memorable.

I don’t like to cook, but I LOVE to eat, especially Italian!
I wished you lived closer, as I would love to try authentic Italian food!

Hi! Linda
Thank you again for the demonstration of Italian Appetizers for the Christmas Season. When my daughter said this workshop was going to be 2hrs, my first thought was Wow!! – seems a little long, but I was surprised that the 2hrs flew by so quickly – and I really enjoyed myself. This is a good sign that this workshop is well-constructed and I would not change anything. Buon Natale
