Christine Clothier

After our caterer cancelled three weeks ago, we weren't sure what we were going to do about food at our party.  Cocoa Pesto worked with us to get a feel for what we wanted and quickly got back to us with a menu.  Thank you Scott and team for your great customer service... I wish I got to try the food because everyone was raving about it!

Ian Beauprie

Once again a great pleasure to have the Cocoa Pesto team at my house.  Great food, impeccable staff, perfect service, and then you vanish with only yummy leftovers to know you were ever there!!  Lots of good feedback about the event.

Gary Rubinstein

Their ribs are the best in the world! We had them at our annual Canada Day regatta!
