CHEF TONY CARBONE
Wow! Tony joined our family and friends for a housewarming/birthday celebration and his pizza was an absolute highlight! Tony’s set up was incredibly thoughtful and professional. In addition to the phenomenal pizza Tony also brought two amazing salads which were equally as good! Tony fired up pizzas for 12 adults and 10 kids effortlessly. He entertained the adults and children alike by showing us how to make the pizzas and sharing stories of how he’s perfected his recipe over the last two years. Tony does it all and it made hosting a party at our home a dream! I would highly recommend inviting Tony to join your next celebration!

"Tony is the best. His pizza is phenomenal! I’m from New York and I am very picky about pizza. He showed up at my house when he said he would, he’s extremely organized and made the most delicious pizza! We hosted a family reunion and he was a big hit! I can’t say enough about him and will definitely have him back again. Not to mention he’s super personable, we truly enjoyed having him at our party! 5 stars?? He deserves 50 stars!!!"

"Tony joined us in Kennebunkport for a recent college reunion, and made delicious pizza for about 17 of us. We were absolutely thrilled with how it went! The pizza was incredibly fresh, flavorful, plentiful, and delicious (did I mention delicious?), and Tony was so friendly, organized, and informative. He made the night a big success, and as I've recapped the weekend with friends, a common refrain is something like "having a pizza party was the best idea!" Highly recommend!"

This was such a great party and the pizzas kept on coming. They were excellent and Tony is so sociable with everyone at the party while cranking out delicious pizzas.

We had Tony in our home for a 'pizza class' for six adults. Tony was so accommodating to our group, going above and beyond to prepare some delicious appetizers to enjoy before the main event! The tuna ceviche was one of the most incredible tuna dishes I have had- clean and complex with a kick! The macaroni and cheese bites with crisped prosciutto were very yummy and will be a go-to appetizer in the future. From talking us through the techniques and varying ingredients he uses for his pizza dough and sauces, to explaining his background, Tony was very informative. The pizzas were out of this world, his set up was wonderful and he left the kitchen impeccably clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and can't wait to use Tony again in the future!

We had the pleasure of having Tony and his amazing pizza ( and crab cakes and salad) at my husband’s 40th birthday party. I can’t speak more highly of him and his work. He was there early to set up and was so friendly with our guests. He answered questions and made everything feel very personalized. He made my job of hostess so easy and added the ambiance of the evening. His timing of the food was spot on and the pizza just kept on coming! He even made a few extra for “late night” which got gobbled up before bed. His attention to detail was impeccable and the food was truly amazing! People are still talking about it. Do yourself a favor and book Urban Epicurean for your next soirée and you won’t be disappointed. Thank you Tony for making my husbands special day even better!

Tony is simply the best. My husband and I have worked with him several times over the years and he never disappoints. His food is spectacular, he’s easy to work with, and is just a great/warm person to top it off. I can't of recommend him enough.

Wow... some of the best pizza I've ever had! Tony was catering an open house at an office in Newburyport. He had his pizza station set up outside, and the pizzas were coming out fast and furious - he kept a large group of people fed, and a bunch of us entertained at the same time! Really cool concept, and awesome fresh pizza!

We hosted a backyard pizza party for our neighborhood (in the cold!) and Tony made the event extra special! He stood outside under a small tent in the snow (yes, snow in April) and created the most delicious pizza I've ever tasted! Fresh flavors, crisp and tasty crust! Perfect! Our guests loved watching his process and savored all of the wonderful aromas swirling around his fabulous pizza ovens. Truly a gourmet experience!

We had Tony for a party of 50 plus guests (most from Long Island who know a good pizza!). He was super accommodating...coming early to set up, perfectly timed when to have the pizzas coming out and made them all night long. Everyone raved about how awesome the pizzas were and how friendly he was! We can’t wait to do this again for another party!

OMG I am in heaven. Thank you for surprising us with a pizza last Friday night. I am a pizza crust freak and your inside crust is strictly 4th dimension for me. Please, please please, get the tent thing going and sell your pizza at the farmers markets in Newburyport and Portsmouth SOON!!!

"The Urban Epicurean far exceeded my expectations. What a night.
Tony is an OUTSTANDING chef who creates a special atmosphere for you and your guests. His menu is thoughtfully prepared, customized to your preferences, and prepared right in front of you with the absolute freshest ingredients. Think about it, when was the last time you sat in your kitchen with a glass of wine while a professionally-trained chef personally prepares dinner for you and your guests? Or, hang out in the other room while he makes the meal in the kitchen (but then you're missing all of the fun).He'll talk you through his techniques, give you secrets on where to find the best ingredients, and is great about knowing when you want to chat and when you just want to dig into some amazing food. Oh, and our kitchen was SPOTLESS when he left. Why go out to a fancy restaurant when you can invite some friends over and create a truly unique and personalized dining experience? I HIGHLY recommend the Urban Epicurean personal chef service if you are in or around the Greater Boston area."
