Frequently Asked Questions

What forms of payment do you accept? 
Parties must be paid for in cash or check the day of the event. 
Credit card payment is not accepted.

What is your maximum party number? 
Each oven can service a maximum of 150 people. If you have more than 150 guests, you will need to retain services for our second oven as well.  

How do I book a party?

If the date I want is booked, do you have a waiting list? 
Yes.

When do you need to know our final guest count? 
Ten days prior to your party, unless the change in count requires an additional oven (if available).

What time do you arrive onsite for our event? 
We arrive one to two hours before our serving start time.

Will there be a server for our event? 
Our crew size is based on the size of your event. Events of 25-50 guests have (1) server included in the pricing. Events of 50-99 guests have (2) servers included in the pricing. Events of 100+ guests require additional servers. Additional servers are charged at a rate of $25 per hour per server.  

Do you provide beverage service? 
Cocktail Barbone is Cape Cod’s newest mobile bar trailer, available for rent for your next event! We’re capable of serving great wines, beer and signature cocktails, as well as additional services available with rental of our bar trailer.  
Should you just have the need for bartenders, and not our bar cart, that’s no problem! We have bartenders available for service at $35.00 per hour, per bartender.  
Customer must provide all alcohol and glass/plastic-ware.

Do you travel off Cape with your ovens? 
Yes. Our ovens travel all over Cape Cod and the greater Boston area.  We have even taken our ovens as far North as NH and far west as Rhode Island. However, travel beyond 25 miles from Hyannis incurs an additional fee. 

What happens if it rains? 
We come rain or shine and come for your event and are prepared for the conditions. Should we encounter a rainy day we have a 20x20 catering tent that covers our work area, and the space immediately in front of our oven, so that our crew is sheltered.

Can you bring pizzas inside to us if our event is indoors? 
Yes, should your event be indoor our server(s) will run all food in to the designated buffet area for you and your guests.

Can you pull up to my garage? 
We can pull up close to a building or garage, but we cannot pull inside.

Can you park in the backyard/on the lawn? 
Yes, if the ground is level and firm enough we can position the oven wherever you like.  However, please be aware that the weight of the oven is 4,000 lbs and must be trailered in to place with our catering van. Therefore, please use caution as to where you would like us to place our oven if you have a septic system, in-ground sprinkler heads, or a lawn that you are particularly proud of, as we are not responsible for damage caused.

What size space do you need for the oven and your setup? 
We need a space of about 20’x20’ for our oven, refrigerator unit and prep tables set-up.

Is there anything I need to provide you with?  
We need access to a standard electrical outlet for our refrigerator unit. 
*Additional items required for wedding events.

Do you need me to provide Pizza Barbone with a table for the buffet?  
For non-wedding events, we provide a wooden table for events of less than 75 guests. Events of 75 or more guests must provide us with tables (and/or linens) for our buffet area. If you have a table or kitchen island that you would like to designate for the buffet, please let us know.

What style of pizza do you serve?  
We bake authentic Neapolitan style pizzas in our 900-degree wood fired Stefano Ferrara oven. Our pizzas are 12” in diameter and cut in to 6 slices per pizza. Neapolitan pizza has a varying degree of charring to it. This char on the sides and bottom of the crust adds a subtle layer of flavor and texture to the pizza. There is a careful balance of crust, sauce, and cheese. With Neapolitan pizza there is never too much of any one component.  

Do you offer gluten free pizzas and/or vegan cheese? 
Yes! We make a gluten free crust and vegan mozzarella (cashew-based) in-house at Pizza Barbone. However, our restaurant kitchen is not a gluten free environment. We do take every effort to maintain gluten free workspaces, but there may be trace amounts of gluten present. Our gluten free and our regular pizzas are cooked in the same oven.  Pizza Barbone does not recommend our GF pizza for customers with Celiac disease as there is no guarantee that it is 100% gluten free.  
Gluten free dough is an additional $4.00 per dough. Vegan mozzarella (CASHEW based) is an additional $2.00 per serving.  

Do you provide plates, napkins, utensils?  
We provide heavy-duty paper plates, napkins and plastic utensils. If you prefer to use your own serve ware that is fine too! Please be aware that we do not provide drinkware and beverages (unless contracted under our bar cart services).

Do you have a restaurant? 
Yes, our restaurant is located at 390 Main St. in Hyannis, MA. 

Do you provide trash removal service? 
Customers are responsible for having a trash management plan in place for their event. We are only able to remove trash that is produced at our immediate kitchen setup.
