The guys at Orapello’s catered my rehearsal dinner and were the hit of the party. They showed up on time and were cranking out all different kinds of pizzas for a few hours. They were delicious! They even made some brand new concoctions that they were experimenting with at no additional charge. I’d highly recommend these guys. More...

Excellent authentic pizza. True Neapolitan. This outfit makes their own dough and is fanatical about toppings including homemade Italian sausage! Specialty pizzas include prosciutto, arrugula, and a delicious balsamic drizzle only to be outdone by a pear, gorgonzola, and caramelized onion treat!!! Dough is thin and crispy. Oven heats to 1000 degrees and family owned and operated! Can u tell I know and love this product! Best of what's around! More...

Never got a chance to say thank you for the wonderful job you did at our wedding. The pizza was delicious! Wish I could relive that day just to eat it again :)

Orapello's was hands down one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. They catered our Friday night welcome dinner for 100+ people and EVERYONE raved about the pizza -- it was INCREDIBLE!! We live in NYC and have super high pizza standards and -- no joke -- these guys crushed any slice we've ever had in the city. On top of making amazing pies, these guys are the absolute sweetest, most fun, professional, all-around lovely folks you'd ever care to meet. Couldn't recommend them more!! We love you, Orapello's!!!

Can't say enough about these guys and their pizza! Incredible dough that is thin, crispy, chewy. They offer a wide variety of high quality toppings, so there is something for everyone. The specialty pizzas: pear and gorgonzola, basil pesto with roasted red peppers, and prosciutto, arugula, and balsamic glaze were dynamite! The staff is very professional and friendly. Easy to work with. Highly recommend. You won't be disappointed. More...

Orapello's catered a party at our house. They set up the pizza oven on our driveway with a tent. It was fabulous! The pizza was incredible. All our guests loved the food and the concept. The pizza is absolutely delicious--some of the best I have had in the Capital Region. The pizza tastes fresh, light, and beyond amazing. Joe was great to work with. He will email back immediately. They were organized and efficient. I highly recommend them for your next party!! More...

Oh my goodness, where do I even begin. Before you finish reading this review, please just call Joe and reserve your date now. Orapello's was the best decision we could have made for our wedding day. My husband and I got married on 8.18.18 in Lake Placid and went for a relaxed, bohemian vibe. This meant no seated dinner. We are big foodies and loved the idea of having food trucks/mobile vendors at our wedding, so we stumbled across Orapello's while looking through the very limited mobile food options in the Adirondacks. We trusted Orapello's amazing reviews and we were blown away. This was the best pizza we've had anywhere in the world - Italy included. I don't know how Joe and his team came up with their pizza dough recipe, but it is insanely good. Perfectly doughy, but also light and crispy, with the most amazing flavours. His topping choices were delicious - our guests kept raving about the pear gorgonzola. Orapello's was able to churn out pizzas for 130+ people in a matter of minutes and we kept hearing from guests that it was some of the best pizza they've ever had (and we have some pizza snobs in our group of family & friends!) Joe was amazing throughout the planning process, always on top of emails and very patient when our venue required extra permits and such. We can't thank Joe and the Orapello's crew enough. We'll be dreaming of that buffalo chicken pizza for years to come! Thank you!!!!!! More...

Working with Orapello's was SO easy and made our wedding really special. I was hesitant to hire a pizza truck for my wedding because I have heard other trucks cause long waits for food. However, with 100 guests and releasing tables of 20 at a time we were easily able to serve all our guests quickly and they raved about the quality of the pizza. It was SO yummy. The set up was fast and easy and they provided plates and napkins. We would use them again in a heartbeat. More...

We used Orapello's as one of our wedding vendors for our welcome party 2 weeks ago, and it turned out to be one of our best decisions. They were so easy to work with (responded super quickly, were very helpful etc), very professional night of, and the pizza and salads were out of this world delicious. Our guests were so happy! It was important to us to find vendors that sourced good quality ingredients, and we found that here; it also made the food taste that much more fresh and amazing. I can't recommend Joe and Orapello's enough! More...

Joe and his crew are the best! He invited us into his home for the tasting prior to booking with him and we knew immediately that they were extremely genuine people. Joe is extremely professional and easy to work with and the pizza was amazing! All of our guests raved about how good it was and that it was such a unique idea. We would recommend Orapello's to anyone! More...

Joe and the crew at Orapellos were fantastic! Joe invited us to his house to try the wood-fired pizza and we knew immediately that it would be the perfect dinner for our wedding. They were so great through the whole wedding and there was plenty of food for everyone. We definitely recommend them!! More...

If you are looking for the best wood fired pizza around, look no further! Orapello's wood fired pizza exceeded all expectations, which were high to begin with. The quality ingredients, professionalism, timeliness, and TASTE were over the top good. We used Orapello's wood fired pizza for our appetizer round at our outdoor wedding and it was unbelievable! Joe and crew did a fantastic job! Very accommodating also. Highly recommend . More...

Went to a wedding at the Waterfall House in West Fulton last weekend, and one of the best parts of the event was the absolutely delicious pizzas.  As part of the wedding party, my husband was responsible for helping get the oven set up and ferrying pizzas in as they were completed, and Orapello's guys were so conscientious, polite, helpful and just a joy to work with... also, since Spouse was handling the transaction, I saw the price. And for the quality of the pizzas - it was totally reasonable. Really recommended - I don't often see these types of affairs done well at weddings. More...

Absolutely amazing.We hired Joe & his crew to sling pizzas at our August 2013 wedding, and they impressed the pants off of us. From our mid-winter tasting at Joe and Kim's house, where we were made to feel very welcome and excited, to all of our quick email and phone communications, to the big day, it was nothing but a pleasure to work with Orapello's Wood Fired Pizza.Joe is truly a pizza perfectionist-- his oven was imported from Italy, he only uses doppo zero flour for the dough and San Marzano tomatoes for the sauce. This man is the real deal. My new husband (!!!) is very serious about pizza, and he knew he had met his pizza-loving match in Joe from the moment we read the Orapello's website. The pizzas are incredible, with beautiful leoparding of the crust and flavorful ingredients. We got so many compliments at our wedding of 90 people, and Joe and his crew were able to serve all of them incredibly quickly for a very reasonable price. My favorite was the BBQ chicken with tart red onions, but the pear & gorgonzola, and the prosciutto and arugula with balsamic drizzle were also huge hits. Even three days later, I am enjoying the pizza on my honeymoon, cold from the fridge.It's very rare that I will recommend something without hesitation or caveat, but I would do so for Orapello's. Honestly, if we have any more big events in our family, we will probably be calling Joe to swing by with his oven. He couldn't be a more professional or easy to work with guy, and he makes a mean pizza! More...

We had Orapello's cater our gathering after our wedding. The food was awesome, Joe and crew were wonderful and accommodating. One of our guests said that he loved the pizza, and he's not a big fan of pizza in general. Another guest said that this pizza was the BEST he's ever had. People kept going back for more! Orapello's is a great company to work with. This is such a unique way to make your event special! The price is very reasonable. We highly recommend them! Joe and Kim, you rock! More...

WOW! These guys did wood fired pizza for our wedding, three weeks later we are still getting compliments about the food! Joe is easy to work with, has a real desire to keep the customer happy, and just happens to make amazing pizza. Eat Orapello's, or don't bother :) More...

We had Orapello's Wood Fired Pizza at our farm wedding last weekend, and it was a HUGE hit! Everyone loved the pizza. Joe and his team were incredibly friendly, professional, and accommodating. They had to run all of the pizzas up a hill that led into our barn in the summer heat, and they did it all night with a smile on their face! I was super impressed with their professionalism. Also, the pizza is absolutely delicious! It's thin and slightly crispy, but not TOO crispy (you know how some places burn wood fired pizza? I hate that!). There are a huge variety of flavors, and Joe and his team do their best to get them out quick. We had 70 guests at our wedding and used one pizza truck. Joe was able to get everyone fed within a half hour time frame. It did take about 5 minutes to replenish the pizzas after each table went up to serve themselves, but the wait was worth it. Many of our guests went back for seconds and thirds as the night went on.I would definitely recommend Orapello's pizza for your wedding! More...

Catering and Events: If you go to the Fair or any local event and see these guys....treat yourself to a fresh made-to-order wood fired pizza. Joe travels with the oven in tow and makes individual sized pies. Delicious and imaginative choice of toppings includes prociutto and arugula-YUM! He uses fresh mozarella and basil.His pizza is much better than your run of the mill pre-made slices. More...
